I saw its lots cheaper to buy in HK.
Intend to buy 1year worth of daily lens.

Not that I know of. But if it's over a certain $$$ value, you will need to declare and pay tax. Haha

yes, $600 per person...

but u can be smart...

if u are buying bags, clothes for yourself... cut off the tags and take out the plastic and stuff. if u are buying electronic, take it out of the box. basically make it look "used"

they usually don't check. just don't look too flashy.

oh and don't forget to pack it in the check in bag. there is liquid inside so it won't be allowed in the hang luggage.

but it should be fine, I ever brought contacts to Oz form Sg.
