Strange but true

Singapore Post (SingPost) plans to offer 24-hour automated post offices at condominiums around the country according to an announcement issued by MediaPost news .

The world's first such post office is now available at the Parc Oasis condominium in Jurong. The 4,000 residents living there can pickup their registered parcels or even their online grocery shopping.

24-hour lockers will allow residents to retrieve their items at their convenience. They will be informed of the pickup through their mobile phone, and given a pin number to access the locker.

Residents can also use the machine for other services like returning library books and paying bills. In the future, they can also book condominium facilities like tennis courts and barbeque pits.
