The Mystery Of The Missing Letter

Each time my girl applied for scholarships to respective companies, I would help her to send them out by courier.  I normally use "Fast Post" to courier down the documents and I take granted that they will reach the destinations safely.

But it is not so.....

As I was tidying  up my office drawer during lunch time, I saw the receipts.  Out of curiosity, I logged into their website and keyed in the tracking number one by one.

To my shock and dismay, there was one document that was not delivered successfully!   And that was dated in May this year..... Too late to do anything.... my fault for not checking earlier.... I wonder where the documents has gone to.... I checked the address of the slip, they were written correctly... till today, I do not know why it was not delivered...

One question... Does the courier company inform the sender if the document is not delivered successfully?

Latest Update :
I called up the Pos Laju, it seems that the tracking cannot be done after 3 months from the date of sending.  Since my letter is in May, they already deleted the record online... but the staff on the line checked the tracking number for me, the document was successfully sent and received!

Summary:  Not the Fast Post's fault but mine cos I only tracked it yesterday..... Sorry!!

  1. The effectiveness and efficiency level of malaysian posting system are still questionable lol, documents are often lost and couldn't be retrieved.

  2. I thought if unable to deliver they are supposed to return to sender? I also assume it's delivered if they never returned to me.

  3. huh?? really not delivered or they did not update the status to the system?? hmmm, if you are using the "Fast Post", you have all rights to claim for compensation if the mail is lost.. they are responsible for the delivery and i would say, liable, instead..

  4. Yup, it should be returned if undelivered. That is why I will track right away after sending something and haunt them when something has note been delivered - go to their Facebook page, send email...and here, I would march to their office to demand an explanation.

    If poslaju, the charges are so high...so I would expect nothing less than excellence. If they can't provide that, then they should not charge so much!

  7. I always take for granted too especially if it's pos laju.

  8. For pos laju, I always do the tracking. Can check the mail successfully delivered or not.

  9. Did you have to pay them? You need to get your money back? Maybe use a different courier?

  10. I thought they will automatically return it to you if not delivered. Yes I agree to ask them to find out where it is or claim for non delivery even though it is after so long.

  16. This is interesting topic. Please come back and update us after you made noise with them!!
    They are supposed to inform you and return you undelivered stuffs.
    I use UPS and Federal Express for my orders from USA. They send me emails to let me keep track and that's very good!

  17. TM, yes, FED express is efficient.. I will definitely call this PL again!

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
