if your friend likes vodka, gin, whiskey etc a bottle will be much appreciated! I could cry everytime I need to replace the Hennesy!

If he has a wife/gf a bottle (or two) of Batiste dry shampoo will be much appreciated, such a cheap and simple thing but I miss it so much any visitors we have from the UK are warned to be well stocked up or the guest bedroom wont be available!

Cadbury's cream eggs and mini-eggs too, I found cream eggs in one supermarket here (roughly 6 dollars for a packet of 3!) but they were all sold out within a day :(


CC Eggs - great shout!! I'm going hunting tomorrow for those......

Ooh yeah, spotted dick, treacle tart, choco suet pudding!

p.s. the Bird's can be got in SG... though the one in cartons (not powder) is better in my opinion, and I think you can only get that from the UK...

Heinz puddings in the tins are great - a students daily meal. I went through a few of those at Uni!!

Jaffa cakes too - good shout.

One thing that I have forgotten about is fresh milk but obviously its tricky to bring. Over here it tastes awful. Fine in tea or coffee but straight - no thanks.

Cannot go wrong with a few packets of 'monster munch' aswell as a can of Tizer. Or perhaps a block of Red leicester and Branston pickle mmmm

I always get Shaving Gel. They only sell foam here that I've found and that's so old hat.

Also there's a site you can buy Monster Munch and all the crisps and stuff on. They'll ship them on over.

here's the link http://www.britishcornershop.co.uk/shop.asp
Don't p*ss me off! I am running out of places to hide the bodies.
