    Nappy sacks for your babies nappies. Yes they are sold at Bumps to Babes but cheaper and easy to bring over. BBQ sauce, tampons, I would bring vegemite at present as there appears to be a bit of a shortage in Hong Kong at the moment. Lollies like chocolate bullets or mint leaves not readily available here in Hong Kong.

    I also bring back panadol dissovable (not available) as well as panadol and medication for the children. It is just a preference as it is available here. Also childrens detangling spray....

    Cadburys cream eggs all year round, they sell them here for the Easter period which I know is when they are meant to be, but in the UK I remember they sold them all year round, yum yum! I am a chocoholic!

    for the canadians out there can't get good POUTINE!
    cul-de-sac serves a passable alternative to the real thing.

    but the thing i miss the most....

    the smell of freshly cut grass! when i was in vancouver years ago, i was walking through a residential neighbourhood and a lady was outside mowing her lawn...i wanted to ask her if she'd mind if i lay myself down on it and just smelled it, but i thought she might think that i'd been smoking a different kind of grass! LOL!
