Firstly, a breakdown of the timeline:
27/03, 11:00PM: Placed UO order
28/03, 2:30PM: UO informed me that package 1 was on its way.
29/03, 7:00AM: UO informed me that package 2 was on its way.
31/03, 1:00AM: vPost informed me that package 1 had arrived.
31/03, 1:30AM: Made payment for package 1
02/04, 2:30AM: vPost informed me that package 2 had arrived.
02/04, 9:30AM: Made payment for package 2
05/04, 5:30PM: Received package 1
06/04, 5:30PM: Received package 2
So in summary, the entire process took 10 days to complete! I am quite impressed by the efficiency, despite having had to fork out extra for shipping costs. vPost has been surprisingly on its game, although its “real time” updates on the online portal can be improved.
With regards to the products, let’s just say that both items turned out slightly different coloured than expected. Blame it on the computer screen resolution I guess, but the heels were not as mustard and the dress was not as mint as represented. My sister is pretty glad with the purchases though, so at least her outfit for the w is settled.
