I would much rather bring the things I need that buy them on the black market or the grey market.

I have a stick of Sure here, on the dresser, next to the W26,000 deodorant. It is as good as useless to me! I am very picky about my deodorant brand, and certain ones don't work well with my body chemistry as well.

I'm a girl, and while it's better than nothing, Old Spice is pretty low on my list of things I want to smell like. (Does everyone have a list of things they want to smell like?)

I wish I had brought more deodorant to Korea with me. One stick per month, plus maybe two extra for summer. Worth the luggage space in my opinion.

I really miss my VCR and movie collection...

But mostly, I wish I'd brought my dogs with me. I'd love to take them out for walks and go play frisbee with them in the field behind my place... I miss them alot, but the plane woulda been too hard on them.

This statement makes no sense. It's like saying you regret not bringing sushi with you to Japan.


I'm not a big fan of pixelated porn. I mean, why would anyone rent a porn, only to have everything worth watching pizelated so badly that nothing at all can be seen. I mean, what's the point? Also, while in Japan I wouldn't have minded a nice American-style California roll.

Also, thanx everyone else for your replies. I'm compiling photos of home, and buying a big ass bag of candy! Especially Coffee crisp!

I have had a peanut butter cup, and to me, dipping chocolate in peanut butter would suffice, I am sure. Very Happy

bundangbear,

FYI, you can find great porn in Japan! Magazines, that is. I went to Shimonosekki a couple of years back and stacked up on dirty mags. Full-frontal and close-ups (unlike Korean crap-ola). I'll sell you a couple if you're really in need. Laughing

I regret not bringing more Velveeta Shell's Mac and Cheese. MMM!!! And the first time I came to Korea, I regretted not bringing my Nintendo 64 with Goldeneye. However, I remedied that regret this past Christmas.

Why buy tylenol? I bought a huge jar of the generic name kind. Like 500 pills - you can get them on the black market for CHEAP.
