Bad Postal Services
I was so angry and furious last week. My face looked like Angry Bird with smoke coming out of my feathers. Suddenly I remembered that I had posted over 10 postcards to many bloggers from Xi'an in China. That was Friday 2nd December when we walked a few kilometers in the cold weather from our hotel to the post office. Until today, I believe that no one has received. Aaarrrgggggh!!!
This the 3rd time all my postcards were either lost, misplaced, stolen or sunk in the Titanic Ship!! The first time in 2013 over 10 postcards were sent from Nanjing - China after arriving from Shanghai. I had time to kill while waiting to catch a bus to climb the Mount Jiuhuashan. We sat down and slowly wrote all the cards beside their big post office! Hilang! Lost in Bermuda Triangle! Niamah!
The second time happened in 2015 @ Manila and this has taught me a good lesson here. I was staying inside their swanky Makati hub and their postal services were unique. Customers would do their postal errands at the small "Postal Booths" inside the Greenbelt Shopping Mall. I posted all my 10 + cards at Booth A which never reached any of the bloggers till today!!!. Next day, my wife posted her own postcards at the Booth B beside that ill fated Booth A. All her postcards arrived her friends! That was the first time I saw independent postal booths offering such letter & parcel delivery services in Manila. Niamah!
The only countries which all my many postcards safely reached every single blogger were posted from Japan and Indonesia! We visited Japan many times and never encountered any problem besides their postal delivery is super fast! It took less than a week to reach Singapore and Malaysia. Banzai Japan!
We happily took some trouble to choose and buy the postcards before sitting down at Starbucks to write one by one with different personalized writing & greetings blah blah blah. I have checked with Small Kucing and SK. Both told me they have not received my postcards and must have "Gone With The Wind"... Adoooi! My heart is aching & bleeding now....
The bloggers whom I sent:
2. Small Kucing
5. Angeline Chee
8. Chris Au
10. Sharon Lim
13. Diane Teo
I found a China's website to file complaints about my lost postcards!
So I quickly poured out my anguish and woes.
I got an instant reply so fast!!
Have you ever encountered such postal nonsense like me?
