Kota Kinabalu: Post Office

During the last day of our trip to Kota Kinabalu, our friends wanted to go to the Post Office to drop their post cards.  They believed that it was lucky to send yourself a post card from the country you visited to your home address.  They wrote themselves a letter or short message, which can also be kept as souvenir for the future.

The post office in Kota Kinabalu was in the ground floor of the building.  Comparing it to the post office here in the Philippines, this is way better.  The inside is air-conditioned and clean, unlike in the Philippines, or at least to the Makati Post Office, since that is the only post office in Philippines that I have gone to.  There were also seats provided for the customers while waiting.

The chair were comfortable to sit on.  They didn't provide chairs just to say that they allowed the customers to sit, but they saw to it that the customers will not have a hard time waiting for their turn.  And you will see the floor and surroundings that they are clean and tidy... maybe because it was closed doors.

When the turn of the customers comes, they will approach one of the counters to process whatever item they will send locally or internationally.  The are 15 counters ready to serve.

 The next step is to drop their mail to the dropboxes.  These dropboxes are categorized as you will see.  There's a separate dropbox for mail to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah & Sarawak, and there's also for those going international.

On the way out, you will see the different envelopes or packaging used for sending off items.  Though, I'm not sure what the different designs mean.

And to top it all of... no post office will work properly without a delivery van or truck.  They're delivery van is well designed from the outside.
