I really doubt whether you'd have any trouble at immigration Jimmy, but I think if it were me (unless I was really skint) I'd just bin them and get some more when you get here. Everything except for the top-shelf opiates and stimulant type drugs (ritalin etc) is cheap and easy to get in Cambodia.

I can easily get this for $1.60 per box of 30 tablets.100mg.

Immigration here probably won't be a problem, but the other airport(s) that you're flying out of, and through, might not be so lax. Definitely not worth the risk!

Absolutely! No way I'd take a chance bringing something through airports that you could get for a few pennies when you get here.

"Well, I didn't need a prescription when I bought them, and I hate you can buy everything over the counter in Cambodia" isn't the best excuse.

Im in Tokyo, i got a work permit for japan.

Shit pay here compared to back in OZ and ten times the competition plus they often ask for a degree plus fluent japanese (N3 cert) for menial jobs.,... .

I earn twice what a bachelor degree holder earns here in japan just working construction in OZ and the cost of living is on par
