    Yay the best thread.

    Is there some sort of limit on how much crap you can buy in on arrival from the Duty Free store?
    And if there isn't would anyone doing a booze run be able to pick me up a couple of bottles of booze on their way in?

    Seeds are a pretty touchy thing, actually. Essentially anything made of plant matter has a chance of getting refused. We had trouble getting some honey from Tassie to Perth one time, and I almost didn't get a varnished wooden keepsake from overseas in. So I wouldn't have too many hopes for seeds.

    Might as well try though, if they aren't that expensive (or free, wherever you are getting them from).

    man is this sarcasm because the opposite is true

    Also when they realise there's nothing to do so you can go home.

    I worded this poorly hashpipe.

    Basically I think that companies should just learn to recognise when there is legitimately no work to do and just ease up on their "you must look busy at all times"

    They are fine with varnished wood though they just want to see it for themselves.

    Mysst the only thing you are allowed to bring to Australia is 2.25 liters of scotch, 250 ciggarettes or 500 grams worth of tobacco.

    Pretty sure you can buy whatever, just don't try to bring any of it back onto the plane, old men raging at their fancy wine being taken away from them is hilarious.

    "Whether for a business lunch, an evening meal or a romantic dinner for two, Matsuri provides an atmosphere and an experience to remember." Awww rite, on second thoughts are you sure this restaurant is appropriate ?
