We are still mending the queue in the phone services and you may have to wait 1-3 days for us to call you back. The national service numbers are serving in week 2 between 8am and 12pm until the queue is gone. SelfChat is closed until further notice. We regret the inconvenience caused due to the overloaded phone services.
