I like the Poslaju man who delivers at my mom-in-law’s area. He is very courteous and smart at using his discretion according to the circumstances. Take our case for example. My mom-in-law’s mobility is currently limited due to a recent fibula fracture. He understands her inability to come to the door and he doesn’t insist for her to come to the door to receive the parcel and sign the acknowledgment slip. As soon as the main automatic gate opens, he drives in, writes down her name and signs it himself.
He leaves the parcel in front of the door for any one of us to pick up later. So convenient.
With the arrival of email and such, there are considerably less letters, postcards and cards mailed out. I thought that would be the end of our postal system. But it seems that with the rise of petrol prices, the rush hour, slow traffic, higher parking fees, etc, people are resorting to online purchases and Poslaju is becoming more and more popular as a method of delivering parcels because the service is fast and comparably cheaper than the others.
Poslaju Malaysia has become so popular that on one of those occasional times when we had to pick our parcel at the Post Office, the Poslaju section is filled with so many customers coming for their stuff that we find ourselves waiting for more than half an hour, even though it’s not anywhere near to Raya or any other festivals.
I do believe online purchases are becoming increasingly popular nowadays, especially among the ladies. 😀
Speaking about online purchases, don’t you wish you could buy cakes and cupcakes online and them delivered to your doorstep the same instant? The best that we could hope for is ‘next day delivery‘ and by then, the cupcakes won’t taste as nice since it’s not fresh from the oven. Nothing beats the taste and smell of ‘fresh from the oven‘ cakes and cupcakes.
Even without toppings and creams, they taste superb.
