There is a place in Velocity @ 2/F Novena Square that has some ski/snowboard gear (no boards, bindings, or boots, only helmets, body armor, socks, base layers, and stuff; very $$$) that sometimes has wax and other accessories.
Also some of the outdoor shops sometimes have accessories - Camper's Corner at Waterloo Street used to (but I have not been for a while) and there is a new big outdoor shop at Wheelock that might have some stuff (not sure).
Best is to buy in Hong Kong if you go there. Still more pricey than US, but cheaper than most of Asia - but still stupid expensive for boards (like 1.5x US list price). Let me know if you go and I can give you the names of the shops.
PM me if your are unsuccessful and I can pass you a bar of wax.

Who told you that leaving the board in the bag makes it rust? Make sure that the board and bag are dry when you put it in and maybe run the A/C occasionally, then you should have no problems.

They said it makes the board sweat etc when its inside the bag so idk. And also yeah I will let you know if I am successful or not. Otherwise would be nice to have a bar of wax thanks

I am sure they will have at least the neckwarmer/buff types. Not sure about the ones that clip to goggles, but I find those pretty useless anyway.
