Due to the limitations from courier companies we have a maximum order weight limit of 20kg per order regardless of the order value. This is beyond our control and we have to rely on the terms and conditions outlined by the delivery companies.
However, if you have any special needs (alms givings, parties, etc) and would like to place a large/heavy order we will try our best to assist. Please contact us in advance to find out more before you place such an order.
Why my mobile telephone number and email address are required?
We require your mobile phone number and email address in order to provide you updates on your delivery. We will pass your mobile number and email address to our delivery partners in order to keep you updated on the progress of delivery once we handed your package to them.
Also, you may get automated delivery updates and notifications as text messages to your mobile phone and via emails.
It is important to share your mobile phone number and email address as we or our delivery partners cannot send text updates to any landline numbers.

How can I arrange redelivery if I missed my package delivery?
We understand that sometimes you may not be able to stay home to accept your delivery.
In case you missed a delivery, our delivery partners will leave a calling card with their contact details and details of your package(s). Please contact them directly to re-arrange the delivery of your package(s) as we can no longer manage the delivery for you.
However, our delivery partners will send you an email and/or text notifications once your order is fully paid and we book the delivery of your package(s) with them. So it is important to have your correct email address and mobile telephone number provided when you place your order.
In most cases there will be an indication of approximate delivery date. If you know that you are not going to be available on that day you may be able to request the delivery on an alternative date. There may be an additional charge for this service.
