Ask Sandy Lam or one of the other folks who will be going back to HK for the holidays to take it and deposit it in local mail when they get there.

What a nice guy. I usually send my packages to " "
through Canada Post. They almost always get there within 4-5 business days.

As I said, try Canada Post. I just sent a DVD (player) box with other things in it and it wqas about $80. " " received it on the fourth business day after I sent it. Perfect shape, no problem. Your box will probably be in the vicinity of 15-20 bones.

It was probably ther local post over there that lost it. Maybe some dude figured it was PRON and jacked it....then when it was opened up and he saw it was a car mag he couldn't stick it back in the mail so her tossed it.

Anyways, forget about your one bad experience and send it CANADA POST! Where's your national pride man! Keep those postal boys and girls happy so they don't go..

I agree with Canada Post. If it's really important you can put extra insurance on it and have tracking numbers and whatnot.

I sent *ahem* expensive stuff before and it got there as expected.

I send stuff too, leather wallets, DVD box sets, PS2 games etc... I also use Canada Post, however, I send thru registered and it comes with like 60 bucks insurance.

Oh and it is very very fast, My friend received her PS2 game (in sgp) 3 working days after I sent it!!! I was amazed when she called to say thanks!!!

No doubt!! One time I sent a package to and three days later she called and thanked me for the gift...I thought maybe she was seeing someone else on the side because I could not believe it would get there that fast.
