So, i decided to send via UPS overnight next day and they both were delivered a day apart lol and now they have 2 sets from me lol
AOR: June 21st

For those with photo requests, I recommend attaching the courier delivery confirmation on the webform you send to CIC. They always replied me with automated messages, but the first time I attached the delivery confirmation they forwarded it to the PR card processing center and 2 days later I got the ghost update. It might have been coincidence but it doesn't hurt to try. Good Luck!
