Long as not carrying more the $10K, gold bullion, food, plants, weapons or drugs.. its a walk straight out the doors

I'm guessing his biggest issue if Mum made him some home cooked food to take with him Laughing

Arrived Melbourne 8AM(local time) this morning. I was carrying all the chips with me.

Everything was good. Chips arrived my home safely. I pack my chips extremely well and put them into few small boxes.

Because I was away from work, my company needs me. So I went to work after I drop off all my luggage at home.

I'm in the office at the moment. I also have three parcels at my office reception.

I bring 200+ chips from China this time.

I will took the photo and upload to the forum later today.

Thanks for everyone's care.
Chips passed custom smoothly.

I only declared food at custom and my bags not even gone through the X-Ray machine. LOL Very Happy

How long were you in China? Last time I tried to find something it was impossible. Computer vendors/shops don't have anything PIII or older. Peddlers on streets are buying old computers. But when asked if I could buy CPU from them, they promised but never came back with any CPUs, just saying CPUs have silver Wink I guess they thought if they said there's gold in CPUs, they won't be able to buy old computer off my hands.

Which city have you been?

Don't go to the shop because they don't stock those old stuff or they have already sold them for gold scrap. I've been one shop and asked price for a ceramic pentium, a lady salesperson told me that I can't afford it. Come on, it's a ceramic pentium! Anyway, I've been China for two month. I exchanged/purchased some chip with the Chinese member in this forum or otherwise go to taobao. Taobao is a online trading website like ebay.

It is a big project to sort all these chips. My chip storage is running out of space for all these chips now. It's time to expand!
