Singapore - Post Report Question and Answers

What household or grocery items do you wish you had shipped to post?

Alcohol. It’s literally twice the price (or more) compared to the U.S. - Mar 2022

Our favorite couch! - Aug 2015

You can get most items thru DPO but stock up on make-up, things like that. There's a Sephora on every corner but your lipstick is twice as much here. - Aug 2015

Mexican food items. You can get them here but they are expensive. - Apr 2012

Bathing suits, kids clothes and shoes, sheets for a USA bed. - Nov 2011

Laundry detergent and stain remover (they have it but it is really expensive), cereal, summer clothes for growing kids, sandals. - Mar 2010

OTC drugs. I would not have shipped any countertop appliances: breadmaker, mixer, etc. Buy local and pay the premium, or expect to ruin your own stuff working out the right converter device, if there is one. - Dec 2008

More Mexican food and spices! - Aug 2008

Advil (it's not available here). - Jun 2008
