  20. lianrong

    lianrong New Member

    9% tax of your purchases? then cheaper this way lor, a few USD only. especially if the items are heavy, got ppl to carry back for u on SQ (generous luggage weight limit), no need to pay for int'l shipping, war har har!!!

    nuah,
    i think shd be okay for the M&D item, seems to be very big. but not very very heavy, less than 1.5kg shd still be manageable [​IMG] u wanna order on your own? i give u his accom details

    1) check availability by adding to your cart. if OOS, pls dun give me the link hor.
    2) give me 2 alternatives in colors/sizes if possible so i dun have to keep emailing/smsing u to check and confuse myself with the numerous updates/changes going on to & fro!
    if no alternatives, i'll drop if item is OOS at point of adding to cart hor. can't afford to wait too long cos items go very quickly during the redemption period [​IMG]
