I have a parcel bought from AliExpress, with tracking # RG879992409CN.
Tracking information looks OK:

So as of Sep 15, 2017, the parcel has been released from Customs and on the way to the local post office (here in the Philippines, the post office does not deliver parcels to our address, they only send a notice card [which is quite late] to notify us to pick up the item at the designated post office station).
I went to the local post office maybe a week after Sep 15 to check the parcel, but the post office cannot find the parcel. Since it's just a non-urgent parcel, I didn't mind it and waited for the notice card to arrive.
Oct 11 a notice card arrived with no tracking number (in my experience, the tracking number is written on the notice card if it's a registered parcel; and no tracking number is written if it is an "ordinary/untracked" parcel).
I was wondering what parcel could this be. I went to the post office and claimed the parcel. It is the above parcel that I had been looking for a few weeks ago.
Strangely, the parcel does not indicate China Post "RG879992409CN". It seems to indicate via Singapore post(??).
There's no indication of the tracking number, no wonder our local post office could not find that China Post tracking number.
What shipping was used? (The tracking information above does not indicate the parcel passed thru Singapore. It left Guangzhou, China on Sep 5, and seems to arrive in the Philippines on Sep 7. No indication of Singapore as a transit point?)
