Yes, I like to hit the aggregator sites as well, Google Shopping, NextTag, Newegg, etc. - the question would then be finding it here.

Thanks to the other posters above for the advice.

I'd say that would be difficult, as they are probably from the Marketplace, which is not available for sale in Taiwan -meaning we cannot buy anything from the Marketplace from here, be it a cat toy or a TV set.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.

Does Amazon handle the customs, import tax, etc.?

No Amazon doesnt handle your import taxes you need to do that by yourself. Normally they ship with Fedex or UPS and those companies will contact you when your shipment arrives to get a copy of you passport and ARC. They tell you how much to you need to pay in taxes and you normally pay that on delivery.
It's such a pleasure living in a world where everyone is in such a hurry to be outraged over someone else’s trivial comments
