    I sent a present to my girlfriend a week ago by airmail and it has not yet arrived. When should I start worrying?

    In Two to Three months, it can take that long and it may never get there, what with corruption in the UK and also the Philippines, I sent a box containing presents for Anilyn and it arrived nearly 3 months later, I sent another for her Birthday and it never arrived!!!!! It only contained some personal greetings, a bottle of perfume about 30 to 40 worth so not too expensive and it went walkies. Do not put presents into normal post, only Courriers etc but these are expensive, alternatively send money she can buy her own and in that way will get a present, unless she spends it on family of course as is the way of the Filipina
    CPLURLTC Care, Patience, Love, Understanding, Respect, Loyalty, Trust & Concideration / Compassion Are all the values Me & Anilyn hope to give each other, sometimes we may both fail, but we will always try, I am sure most of u in here are the type to do the same with their loved ones.

    Ingat Paul & Anilyn

    6 yrs living in this country and from time to time I am sending small packet to the Phils using Post office International Sign For. So far, I dont lost any of my package, most of my package contains mobile phone and arrived on time, maximum of 1 month. Oh by the way, I have my P.O box in the Phils.

    postal service

    whenever my fiance are sending me something it only took 10 to 15 days..ive proven that already especially when he sent to me the documents i need for my application,he also put money inside it and luckily it never lost..

    maybe it help because i befriended our post man and i used to give him a call everytime i am expecting mail..

    but still it depends to the location where ur gf lives and of course to the people working in their postal office..

    Good news! Present arrived safely. Posted Monday delivered the next Thursday (i.e. 1 week 3 days). Not bad, and Mae is extremely happy.

    Among the gifts she asked for one of my T shirts . . . . . worn! It must be love?

    Well, you're doing better than I did ... my first present never arrived!

    Interesting .... after my first visit, I was asked to leave an unwashed t-shirt behind. Apparently it was worn to bed every night ...

    Then .. catastrophe ... big sis washed it!

    I was asked to do the same, and the day before I got there, in May last year, Jet washed it and returned it to me... when I left, she asked for another worn one...
    which she duly returned clean last February....
    You see a pattern emerging.....

    It is love, and the sense of closeness, I think.
