I saw news article 2 days ago that FEDEX was getting accolades for high service quality in making urgent COVID-19 related deliveries..  inside the USA at least.

LBC is delivering BB Boxes, but I am told that they are not delivering packages shipped within country and NinjaVan is not delivering.

LBC office in Tuburan completely closed..  But I suspect it's because their main employee is pregnant lady. But no LBC service of any kind available here.

well..  out here sometimes the business will scroll down their steel door and appear closed.. but it's well known that if you call out you can go in a side door to conduct business.  The steel door at LBC is closed..  and there is no side door.

Reminds me of a pub I was in years ago back in Manchester..  in the UK.  At Closing Time they turned off the lights and locked the front door.  If you wanted a beer you need to come to the back door and knock twice.. leave a space.. and knock once more.  Yea.. The business meeting the next morning was a bit tough.

LBC may be closed here also, but Balikbayan boxes come directly from the city.

Have been waiting for mail from the USA and Australia since mid-March.  Wondering if anyone (especially in the province) has received any overseas mail.  I have a PO Box in Carcar City and there is nothing sadder than walking for an hour to check the box.... except for the walk back perhaps.

I get mail everyday from the USA.

The fact that I live in the USA is probably a contributing factor though...:biggrin_01:

Most large PhilPost offices nationwide are on a reduced schedule, have limited services, and only open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10 AM to 3 PM. My provincial island PO is closed 'for the duration'. Too bad as I'd really like to get my hands on the books from London and tobacco from South Carolina that arrived in Manila over a month ago. Would make the quarantine go by a lot better.

"Post office operation is only for domestic acceptance and delivery. We only have limited service and this is for mails / checks, parcels with only medical supplies and other essential services to help with the suppression of Covid19."

I managed to have a chat with the Postmaster at Carcar City PO today - she was pulling double duty as the librarian....  anyways, she said that they hadn't had any mail since March and wasn't expecting any until after the 30th.  I assume that coincides with the lifting (potentially) of the lockdown.

At least now I know not to make the long trek...

Oh the postman is always prompt in delivering/picking up his christmas envelope.  Wife puts just enough money in it to cover his cost of travel and a christmas beer.

Good news is the Post Office is open again. Got a delivery today from my bookseller in London...

Only took a few weeks as I'd ordered on May 11th as you can see...

Oh yeah. May 11th 2019. The Moleskine 2020 daily planner is still half good I guess.

Lazada Orders are delivered, it just takes 1-2 days longer. But with LEX (LBC) you can see the tracking when it arrives in mandaue, so just have patience.

I’m still waiting on a UPS package that arrived in Manila on May 13. 

Every few days I get an “exception” email  which corresponds to a tracking entry that simply says “rescheduled for delivery”. 


My sister, who sent the package, called UPS. After some considerable hold time UPS suggested I go pick it up!😀

Sure. It’s only 200 miles with no flights and no passenger ferries. 
 

The last UPS package sent was handed to Air21 in Manila (local agent) so it looks like they’re having issues getting stuff to Masbate. I checked the LBCExpress website yesterday. They also don’t seem to promise anything for here.

Down in Carcar City the PHLPOST is open - but no mail sent or received since mid March.  I wish I had a job like that!
