Tracking of Pos Laju in Singapore

TK eShop uses Pos Laju (operated by Pos Malaysia) to courier goods to our customers in Singapore. Pos Laju is part of the international EMS service. As long as the package remains in Malaysia, it can be tracked using the Pos Malaysia website (link).

Once the package is in Singapore, the page to track the parcel is as follows:

http://www.speedpost.com.sg/TrackAndTrace.asp

Speed Post is the EMS service operated by Singapore Post.

To do the tracking, use the airway bill number (tracking number) provided by TK eShop. This number remains the same for Pos Malaysia or Singapore Post tracking websites.

 

We would also like to remind customers that it is the customers' duty for customs clearance and pay for any duties imposed by the Singaporean Customs for the goods. We will be able to assit with customs clearance by providing paperwork, if any. However, we cannot warrant that we are able to fulfill all the requirements of Customs Singapore.

We would also take this opportunity to highlight the list of controlled and taxed goods imported into Singapore. Information can be found at

Please check with Customs Singapore for the latest list of Goods Subject To Control. Our links are updated on the 11 August 2011.

McDonald's Thailand

We were in Thailand recently, and we just had to drop by McDonalds. McD is noted for it's consistency in taste and in quality worldwide.  But how about calories? To cut a long story short - here's the summary:

At a glance, we notice that the serving sizes is smaller in Thailand; plus less calories in various menu items. For a Thai Big Mac, it is 4% less (in terms of weight) than a Malaysian Big Mac. But shockingly, Thai Big Mac has 11% less calories. Cheeseburger in Thailand has 2% less calories, and Fillet-O-Fish has 3% less calories. A small difference of a few percent would be fairly consistent. McChicken Thailand has 6% less calories than its Malaysian counterpart, and McNuggets 7% less per serve.

The Shocker

They have a Double Big Mac - which has four pieces of beef patties; for the price of 102 Baht (burger only). No nutritional information is provided on the tray liner. One can only wonder the amount of calories it packs.

Conclusion

There appears to be a difference less calories and smaller serves for menu items in McD Thailand. We can only hope that McD Malaysia will follow suite with smaller serves and less calories in our menu items.
