I was pleasantly surprised to receive an email last night from DHL indicating that my passport is on its way back to Singapore.
Yup, apparently, the visa is processed in Kuala Lumpur.
It was very impressive how fast and efficient the embassy was. I applied for my visa Tuesday noontime. The day after, it was already in Kuala Lumpur for processing and was bound to arrive in Singapore today.
When I checked the tracking information when I got back at the office from lunch, I saw that the parcel has already been delivered and received by our receptionist.
I checked with her and after confirming that the parcel has arrived, I went to the seventh floor to get the package.
As soon as I got back to my desk, I carefully opened the package, took out my passport and looked for the page with the sacred Schengen visa. Hehe!
Multiple entry. 30 days.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lordy!
By the way, I dunno with the other EU member states but with the Netherlands embassy, they have a service whereby the passport may be delivered to the passport holder via DHL. The fee is a minimal SGD10. This is just awesome since I dun have to head back to the embassy for passport collection!
So, yeah, see you Europa in April.
