    Since you asked and I couldn't resist.

    Yes we can supply in any package size to suit your needs. We have 5g, 10g etc in 5g increments and also in 1 or 0.5kg steps

    As for the pack dimensions, we can customize to your exact needs, to fit your pill containers, just let us know the volumetric space available.

    The min order is 500kg, in bulk packs of 25kg. For orders over 1 ton, we can provide a volume discount and waive sea freight & insurance. If you're in urgent need, airfreight can be arranged, but I'm afraid I will not be able to absorb this cost.

    Do note that usual delivery terms of on dock ex-factory. Please advise your preferred shipper. If you do not have a shipper, we have worked with many major shippers and can recommend some in your country.

    From the one I saw in the Challenger (IMM), it came in a bottle... no small packets... not sure what others would sell.

    Actually I prefer it that way, easier to keep in any containers (old socks, medicine pill containers, cough syrup container, etc).
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    it would be great if any of you out there know where we could get the gel at the cheapest rate without compromising the quality.

    Buy loose. Store in bak kut teh bag or resealable bags with perforations.

    Pan fry before reuse!

    Not intended to be funny.

    TS asked questions appropriate to the retailer/seller.

    Will anyone here possibly know it the packs can fit into his pill box? How big is his pill box? 1 liter, 1 gal, 10cc?

    Typical of a lot of posts, questions are vague, desired answers are just as vague, information provided to seek help is worse.

    This post (my) is absolutely OT.

    Since you are at Jurong Point... next time, you might want to check out Challenger in IMM building. Not sure how much it cost, but I saw them there once.
