Hakgerakkan

Yesterday I found out that I forgotten to renew the “Hakgerakkan”. It is a permission from the Custom Department if you want to ship your product to East Malaysia. I think it applies for certain type of product only. Lubricant is one of them. The permission is valid for only 3 months. My duty is to renew it every quarterly and I totally forgotten to renew it in January. Normally I will make a mark in my calendar. New Year, new calendar, I forgot to mark it. Besides that we seldom ship to East Malaysia that is why I only remember yesterday coz we have a shipment to East Malaysia next week!

I am in deep trouble. My mind and heart are so disturbed the whole day yesterday. Kept on praying and asking God to HELP! I have disappointed my boss again. Kept thinking of ways to fix it. Worst come to worst, I drive there on my own expenses to get the permission. Must call the custom department first thing in the morning. That was the first thing that I do when I step in the office at 8.30am.

The custom personnel are friendly today. They told me that I could only get the permission on the same day provided the officer is around. Advise me to send the application by courier today and come to collect it 2 days after that. I agreed.

Then I remembered about Pos Express. I could enclose the envelope for them to post it back to me and I would be able to get the permission the next day. Save my money. It only cost me RM2.50. I called the custom personnel again. He is fine with it. Problem solved.

The next step I did was postponed the shipment from Thursday to Sunday. At least got some time to breathe. Once everything is settle, I told my lady boss about it. Since I have settled the problem, she got nothing to say.

I really thank God for helping me and my husband whom I requested to pray for me about this matter.
