Good thing you posted paultantk. I was getting a bit worried too. I'm also still in PIP, same country as you.
Happened to me once about 3 years ago. Was still receiving checks then. Google support confirmed there was a technical problem with payments in the Asia/Asia Pacific region. Payment was delayed a month then.

Can't believe it, new year and it's still PIP

Yep, can't believe it. Fingers crossed. Wish Adsense Advisor was still here. What i'm worried about is that this delay is confined to only a handful of publishers. That would mean it's not on Goog's priority list.

Hey Paul... just wanted you to know that Google is aware of the problem as many M'sian publishers have raised the issue at Adsense Suppport forum :
Payment has been issued since 23 Dec 2010. There is a technical glitch that the payment history page cannot be updated with the payment details. Google is still working on it.

I wonder from where your payment is coming? I've just received my cheque in the UK this morning and for the last couple of years or so it has come from Sweden however today's has reverted to Buffalo, NY.

Hehe. Husky, last month our payment came from Google, Mountain view, traveled to China, made a U-turn, was laundered in India, then Bangladesh, and made a pit stop in Sweden. Then it went through 4 european countries to allow for currency depreciation. However, along the way, it was prevented from continuing on its way in the Republic of Banana-land on suspicion of being illegal contraband. It finally took some clandestine button-pushing and top level negotiations to have it released, on condition that they (government of the Republic of Banana-land) receive life-time supply of uncensored Angelina Jolie DVDs.
In other words, we receive it via Western Union in Malaysia, so we don't know...
