Missing parcel

I've been particularly cranky and resentful today. My lovey sent a parcel from Canada post office a few days before Christmas (air parcel post), it was supposed to arrive Jakarta earlier this month but I still haven't gotten it and it's already over a month now! It is a parcel of 3 bottles Burt's Bees body care, and a box of 6 packages cat treats for Suneo. The weirdest part is, the Christmas card which was sent a few days after the package has arrived. I am very upset because I cannot find this products (my skin care) anywhere in Jakarta. Burt's Bees are recommended brand for endometriosis sufferers because they are safe and paraben free. I am not trying to exaggerate my endo problem but a lot of our daily care or food products have estrogenic compounds that will trigger the pains. I wouldn't care so much about that had I not had endo recurrence despite the surgery which I have gone thru in 2004. That means I have to read every label of products carefully.

Now back to the parcel, normally air parcel post would take up 1 to 2 weeks to reach the designated address. I really don't know what to do now. I would like to inquire the Post Office to locate this package but am pessimistic they will give me an ear full. Missing parcels from overseas is very common here. At least I want to hear a ..."I am sorry to hear your package didn't come" ... though that won't make me feel better either. I wasn't mad, just more than a little annoyed.

oh my goodness! I would be fuming mad when this thing happened to me! Maybe G can send you one through UPS or FEDEX?

I had the same problem back in the Phils when hubby sent a package. It was such a nightmare!

oh, i hate it when it happens. how did G send the package to you? first class rate? if he sent it the cheapest rate, then it might take a while to get there. when package is lost, most of the time, the problem is not here but at the other end like philippines. that is why i quit sending packages by mail. unfortunately it is hard to trace unless he sent it registered.

try resending it global priority.

@Fe & Belle : it was sent by a regular air parcel post. G previous parcel arrived here safely, so he didn't think that anyone would be interested to mess up with my package. Am sure somebody at the post office has taken them. Oh well, what can I do?

Can he ask the Canadian post office to track where the packet is?

@Anna : the post office in Canada gave us 45 days before we can file a complain. That will be next week.
