A Package

Delivery0911

Its like a bonus of items, I love getting packages like these, full of things that I have been looking forward and piling them up together in my mailbox to be shipped together. I preordered the BluRay edition of Star Wars from May or June and now that I have it I have no clue when I’m going to watch all 6 movies, but I want to do it one shot and require people to watch it with.

Books:

  • Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker
  • Man Machine – Max Barry

Picked up a couple of books that I am looking forward to reading and a couple of design books that I would enjoy going through. Then I picked up the Star Wars special edition Moleskines both the small and large notebooks and I love having them but don’t want to use it. I have other Moleskines that I can use, the normal ones, I like collecting these special edition Moleskines.

Back To The Future Trilogy to Blu-Ray

BackToTheFuture

This is probably one of the greatest movies from the late 80s and early 90s, I even remember watching each and every one of those movies on betamax, except for BTTF III which I saw in the cinema. The one thing that stuck in my mind was the flying skate board of Marty McFly and how he never fell off and managed to stay on. If there was any movie to be a classic of the 80s then this would be it, I know I’m going to get this on Blu Ray when its out. And I loved Dr Brown he was hilarious and always getting shocked, I don’t know how many kids who knew what a Flux Capacitor or how much was a Jigawat but it helped Marty & Dr Brown time travel, and I loved the movie music. It was the peak of Michael J Fox, everybody wanted him and I loved that he made these great movies.

MyUS.com BluRay Shipment

I have been saving up a bunch of Blu-Rays for some time now on my Amazon Wish List. And I decided to ship them all one go through MyUs.com shipping service. This was the ultimate test, and I chose DHL Express Service to see what would happen to this shipment and how many BluRays would be confiscated from this extensive list of epic and lifetime movies. And thrown into the mix is one Sonos ZP90, an addition to my current Sonos unit, to play music in other areas.

I had several shipments of Blu-Rays and the ZP90, and MyUS combined all the items into one big box for easier shipping. 23 lbs in total for all the items combined, turned out to be $180, the items got into the MyUS mailbox in Florida over a two day period, so after getting several boxes I clicked to combine them all and ship, the next day I get a DHL tracking number to Kuwait. Three days later all the items are in Kuwait and I just give them my civil ID and pay 10 KD for the tax of the full value of the invoiced items. Overall a much better experience, much faster, cleared in two days from customs and delivered to my house, couldn’t ask for a better service. MyUS is only good for heavy shipments as others have mentioned, its too expensive for small parcels, so if you want to order a bunch of items try combining them one shot and sending them over in one heavy box, turns out to be a lot cheaper then Aramex and a lot less headache. I will use Aramex for small shipments but for big shipments I’m using MyUS.
