The epic journey 漫长的旅途
The two boxes we sent in October 2008 to Elizabeth containing food stuff, books, clothes has arrived safely almost 5 months after leaving the house.
The shipment from Port Kelang was OK and arrived at Manchester as schedule in January. The inefficiency and bad attitude of the local agent caused the almost 2 months delay in delivery to Aberdeen.
One box was delivered to Elizabeth a month ago. The other box was missing. After much haggling and complaining, the box was found and took another three weeks to deliver.
It almost caused Elizabeth high blood pressure. But more important, the two boxes of "homely love" was delivered to her thousands kilometers away after a six month epic journey.
