@livinginchina you mentioned the fee was 800, but did you mean 400? Just renewed mine in October and it was 400 for spousal RP, same for the last 5 years.

That's a good point - international packages can get pretty beat up, so anything delicate should be well padded (air tubes are amazing, but wrapping in clothes could help to) or double boxed inside. 5 ply carboard and lots of padding it a must.

The limit for shipping with China Post is 30kg, so 25kg should be fine.

Cost isn't too bad via surface, probably about 1000rmb, but it'll take several months and tracking doesn't update regularly (if at all). Airmail to the US is taking ~3-5 weeks these days, but it'll cost over 2000rmb for that weight.

Better yet, you can check out all the options and retail pricing here:

Outside of the start of the pandemic, I've never encountered a lost package to the US when sending via China Post. But I've also rarely sent via surface or SAL.

Which article is this in?

I'm assuming the joints you're talking about are high CBD, <0.3% THC hemp strains. Tried some in Italy last summer and really enjoyed it. A lot of the bud smell/taste like the real thing, but there is no real high. At most you might feel a tiny bit more relaxed and calmer.

Thanks for the tip! Yeah, I've heard of this aversion to anesthetics, but it's reassuring to know they'll accommodate wimps like me.

I'll check out the Lanchie and Berder by Nanya today and see how I feel, but otherwise perhaps a dental dept in a hospital as you mentioned. Language shouldn't be a big problem, although my Chinese lacks a lot of specifics related to dental vocabulary. My wife can fill in the rest if necessary. Thanks again!

Not too bad. Price for doubles is reasonable, although when we wanted to buy them at the advertised 40% price during the day, we were told only beer, not cocktails. Regardless, they were still about the price of some other places' happy hour prices, so I can't complain too much I guess. Service was definitely more prompt and attentive than most places.
