Something to note, there is strong evidence that ammonia levels over 7ppm can begin poisoning the nitrifying bacteria. You should try to keep the ammonia level at 5ppm or less to avoid "stalling" your cycle.

Well i finished that 60% water change and the ammonia levels dropped back to about 5ppm after half an hour of the change so hopefully tomorrow will be even less and I will be able to add my shrimps! =]

Don't give up entirely on the adding aqueous ammonia method. Some places to check for unscented, undyed, non-sudsing, clear aqueous ammonia are local grocers, home improvement stores (i.e. Home Depot, Lowes, True Value, Ace, etc.), Pharmacies (i.e. Walgreen's, CVS, etc.). You will most likely never see a pet/fish store selling this clear ammonia since it's harmful to fish. Make sure it only contains ammonia and water

Cool! Cyprus! If you really don't mind spending more for shipping than a bottle of aqueous ammonia, you could buy a bottle online, but leave this as an absolute last resort since it's uneconomical. To make it economical you would have to buy a bottle and other products to compensate for the shipping and handling.
