To make the long story short, I got a message on January 15 from Google Adsense telling me that my check is being processed.
"You can see in your AdSense accont that your check is already being processed. By early next week, you'll also be able to see atracking number in the payment details of this payment, which you can track at www.dhl.com."
After a couple of days, I received my check through DHL (Secure Express Delivery in which I paid $24) on January 27 and I shouted for joy! LOL
Here's the proof of payment:I deposited the check to the local bank here in our town the day that I received it. I have to wait for 5 days for clearing purpose. Now I am pretty excited! Ha Ha
