    2011 Lexus LX 570: $17,000 and 2013 Lexus ES 350: $10,000 (OBO)

    Someone else posted something similar, and I corresponded with him. Here's what I found out. The car is outside China, and in order to have it shipped in, you would have to pay customs/tax or what not. IN ADVANCE. Go figure. :D PS - Not saying that this post is similar to my case, but you might find it interesting.

    THanks so much, Zhang! I'm most interested in the Polo. I called one dealership though but they said the cheapest automatic model would be over 100K, including insurance. Was looking for something below 80K.

    This problem still hasn't been fixed? I thought it was a Chrome problem, but using IE 10 now and it's still the same.

  12. Hi CaptainQue!! Sorry, only just came back to this site and saw your reply (I thought I would have been notified by email when there was a reply like some other forums). YES! That was me with my wife Gemma and daughter Felicity (not "Katie", but um, close... ;))! Heh, yes, fancy seeing you again too! You guys been back to the ice skating rink since? We haven't yet. Felicity was thoroughly enjoying the snow that fell shortly after that, as it was her first time experiencing real snow. Anyway, hope to bump into you guys again soon one day! Regards, KL
  13. Looking for some cheap temporary furniture to put into my study room and bedroom. In particular, looking for desk, chair and cabinets, and also clothes wardrobe/closet. Please let me know if you have any you'd like to get rid of. Thanks!
  14. Hi all! Just moved here with the family (wife and 7 year old daughter, as well as her pet dog, chameleon and 2 hamsters!). I was born in Malaysia, then studied and worked in the UK for over 10 years, and had been living in Hong Kong for the past 16 years till we got here earlier this week. We're staying in the Binjiang area (close to my daughter's Hangzhou International School). I'm of Chinese descent and speak Mandarin too, so things are probably not as foreign to me here as non-Chinese-speakers, though it's still quite a bit of an adjustment in lifestyle and culture! Just thought I'd introduce myself and say hi to everyone! Regards, KL
