Sigh....logging in from the airport to kill some time. Farking stupid guidelines that they have in place here. 100ml?!?!? who in the farking rite mind would go and buy a 100ml spray or gel for a short trip when they already have some left over in their own toilet? Not that I never heard of the guideline but then I never thought it would be so blardy insensible. obviously someone in the management isnt too bright here. IIRC most gels or sprays come in containers >100ml, recent check with my items are about 125ml to 150ml and mind you that they are 1 or 2 uses away from being emptied. thanks to that stupid rule, I got all of them thrown, great, I have to buy new ones now. considering that I wanted to finish those during the trip and not having to buy new ones. seems like I am not the only one complaing here,there are a couple of fuming/annoyed/unhappy tourists around here. farking world class here, big bro here can make everything so nice and then go back to square 1 with a stupid rule like that. Either they wise up and review the rule or scrap it all together.

back to my psp now.

Relax la.

Enjoy your trip, follow the stupid rules and don't get into trouble. Every places got their own rules/laws, got to bear with it some time. ;)

You could have put all that half used liquids into your check-in luggage but you didn't. Weren't you paying attention when these new carry-on regulations came into effect?

...Who said scholars decided the policies? Your uncle?

In any case, if you really think about it, I think most scholars would fly a lot more than any non-scholar lol.

I think your last post is very immature, and reflects very badly on you, glennyong, as a SuperUser.

On another note, I rather not have 100ml of liquids in my hand luggage, then to go out in a blaze of glory kthxbye.

Speaking of which I wonder if the TS even knew that only 100ml restrictions apply on HAND LUGGAGE: link here. Why didn't you just check in your liquids? Or find out before you waltzed off from the checkin counter?

I always put most of my stuff in the luggage when on a trip if possible.
It always save the trouble as compared to hand carry. ;)

Anyway, enjoy your trip, don't let this spoil your holidays...

cant check it in as I got my equipment in the bag and I cant risk checking it in. no point in getting another bag just for 3 nearly finished gels/aerosols that prob have less than 100ml between them. :bsmilie: I`m only in BKK and yet I am feeling Japan already, so many babes on the same plane :bsmilie:

If only a few uses of each bottle were remaining, you could probably have bought smaller ones for travel, and leave the biggies at home. There won't be any redundancy as you can come back and quickly finish the old ones.

I guess 100ml rule is not exclusive to Changi, and my humble opinion is that it's not worth my time trying to negotiate with Airport security and customs people. You either 1. chose to do your diligent homework - reading which is allowed in which luggage and plan accordingly, OR 2. chose to talk it out with the uniformed people OR 3. chose to ignore the law and hope they won't mind. I think

1. always works
2. hassle, and almost never works
3. no hassle unless they DO mind, in which case go to 2.

Forget it and enjoy the trip ;p

its implemented in airports in US, UK, India etc, even for internal flights.

most fluids are usually checked in for convenience than hand carried up.
