App-based courier services have made getting things from point A to B so much more convenient over the past couple of years. We reckon, though, that there may be a few of you who miss the personal touch that comes with receiving items by mail.
If you’re looking to go old school or add a bit of novelty to your Valentine’s package this year, the Philippine Post Office has a service you might be interested in.
‘Express Pada-Love’ (yes, that’s what it’s called) will send Valentine’s items like flowers, chocolates, stuffed toys, and the like to your loved ones via the Philippine Post Office Domestic Express Mail Delivery.
In Japan, autonomous robots may soon be responsible for delivering packages
There’s currently a Valentine’s booth at the Manila Central Post Office where you can drop off items you wish to be delivered. Come February 14, Valentine’s Day, a postman and ‘singing kartero’ will deliver your goods to the recipient.
The Post Office says the service is a simple way to send special people your love this Valentine’s Day. Frankly, we don’t see it being any simpler than booking a delivery rider using a smartphone, but it’s definitely a lot more personal. Interested in trying this out?
