Though you did eventually receive it via other methods, correct?
Sorry for the late reply. Didn't see this post.
Yes, I did receive the package via USPS. Although Tan assured me that an EMS Express package would arrive in the same timeframe as DHL, it still took 2 full weeks to get to me. Everything was intact.
Given his massive price increases and forced shipping method upgrade charges, I won't be reordering from him again. If I can't find a reliable, reasonably priced source soon, I guess that will be my impetus to get off of this train. It's been a long, bumpy ride.
