    Yes they ask especially when I buy smokes so they can let me know if I have too many or are not allowed to bring smokes into my destination country, they tried to tell me that I couldnt take any into Singapore, I told them not to worry about it, paid and left LOL

    Not just in HK or the UK, I get asked. This year, I was asked to see mine at Tokyo Haneda. I get asked in Copenhagen, Milan..security thing, is my guess.
