Buy a bottle of silicone differential oil. It's the same stuff as the expensive, re-branded cube lubes, but a lot cheaper and lasts longer. Most people buy weight 30k or 50k. 50k is very gummy, 30k is less gummy, I've never tried 10k but I believe it is almost like a liquid. Lower weight means it is less gummy and you need to re-apply more often.

I live in Hong Kong too! I choose 30k silicone oil, as it's "lighter" Gan 356 air SM and it's not too expensive, and I found a small bottle of one in my house. I'm not sure if it's a common household product, so you might have to buy it.

This is a topic from 2014 There's been a big evolution in terms of lubes on the market and our knowledge about them, it seems kinda fuitile to revive this topic now
