I remember seeing that but China Post on my end at least is Registered email.

Not the same as an e-packet so I did do one SingPost so far and the other, e-packet.
Hope I took the right route then.

I received a notice from Canada Post today saying that with the holiday rush they will be adding extra addresses in which people can arrange to pick up their mail.

It might not be the same for you in a smaller town but here, essentially, that. means that packages will doubtfully be delivered to your home but the nearest post office for pick up.
