I don’t know about you, but I’m quite cynical about Local Services, particularly the Post. Having lost several sent mails, and not receiving some, I find that we can’t ever depend on them for anything.
And when one can’t trust traditional services, it’s even tougher to not be critical of the latest technologies like My-EG, PosOnline, etc..
But then again, desperate times calls for desperate measures and I risked losing RM 70.00 to some service I have never ever thought of using before, much less trust to begin with.
On the 5th of May, I suddenly remembered that my driver’s license would expire the following day. This has happened before in the past (me suddenly realizing that I would, the very next day be driving illegally), but when it happened then, I had Hadi to chauffeur me around to and from exams.
Now that the Penasihat Conference is so near, I have to stay back at work at night and I definitely can’t hitch a ride with my mom anymore.
So, yes, I was desperate and I tried this out, anticipating the worse.
But yesterday, this package promptly arrived, and I am driving legally today!
From now on, I will try not to be overly critical of the new services the Government offers.
If I don’t give them the benefit of the doubt, perhaps other people won’t as well. so, we might as well give things a try, even if we are at risk of losing.
