Q: Mainland to HK...

shipping a small parcel, like the size of 2 shoeboxes, value <1000¥, not fragile, non-hazardous material, recipient:  licensed foreign worker in HK.  

Anyone have any first-hand experience with this?  Any/all tips, advice appreciated.

 

Am I on the right track with SF Express?

You'll be good with SF. Other one is Yunda, I use it with delivery to HK in some 3 days.

Tips ... pack it well, 'content of the box can't shake, so wrap the content in some newspaper before you close the box, and Yunda or SF guy will write recipient&sender's address on his form and he'll glue it on the parcel after you'll pay some 200 RMB.

Cost of shipping is determined by size and weight of the parcel.

Well, this is just from Zhejiang, so maybe they'll be reasonable,,, but it's a lot more than 250g,,, maybe 1.5kg. :(

I'll probably wait and carry it next time I go 'abroad' or is that 'go look for a broad'?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
