It is located in the Intramuros district of the city, at the bank of the Pasig River. The front of the building faces the Liwasang Bonifacio plaza (now known as Plaza Lawton).

    • Hello Iyenne,

      I hope I really can help. But I had a similar problem in the past. If you haven’t registered it, there is little chance that you can trace it or file a claim, and this is based on my experience with Postal offices. If you have sent it by registered post, perhaps you can still wait for a few days. Try to follow it up with your local post office. Hope this helps and good luck.
