As it turns out... i have another friend in Honk Kong as well that i chatted with last night. He is willing to get me some gear from there and HK post it to me.
Any ideas on the cost diferance between the HK online retailers and the prices you would get walking into a store? IE, HK website = $100.00 USD for x.... you walk into the store and pay??
Oh wait, was she a great big fat person?
