>>> Food! <<<

Attended a breakfast workshop at Zac's Nursery. Basically it's all about reading the food label and showing you the amount of sugar that exist in a typical cereal helping. Those like cocopops, frosties contain an obscene amount of sugar while weetabix has less of course! Then it was onto introducing the kids to healthier forms of breakfast. Zac had 2 bowls of different cereals, rice krispies and shreddies! Seriously I don't know where he puts it all in....

Gosh, I sure as hell miss my breakfast in Singapore. Forget about bread and cereals, bring on nasi lemak (rice soaked in chilli with ikan bilis (small fried fish), fried egg and otak (chilli mince fish). Heavens. Or how about carrot cake, wan tan noodle, chwee kuay etc. Sounds obscene but man they are flippin delicious! I can't tell how much I dislike having to eat bread everyday. Eating cereal isn't an option as it's not my usual diet. Sigh... I can but only dream.....

Yup, miss the food back home and more importantly, miss my favourite fruits. Durians, mangosteen, duku etc. Now I can find Thai durian in the chinese supermarket but as they are Thai, absolutely smell-less and mostly likely tasteless too! Nothing beats the Malaysian durian... stinkin(to some people) but fabulous taste. Luv the bitter sweet ones. I've seen mangosteen being sold here but it's sold per fruit for about 60p. To think I used to buy by the kilo... S$10 for 3 kg worth of mangosteen! Oh and there's duku, a fruit not even found here at all. That is my all time favourite fruit and if I can't find any in the local store near my house, I would drive all the way to Geyland where I know I can get some. It sucks not being able to eat what I was accustomed to....

As for food, my biggest loss has to be seafood as this country sucks big time for fresh fish and seafood. Boy do we have so much problem buying fish in supermarkets as it's always not fresh. God knows how many times we've been conned and I'm talking about well-known supermarkets too selling bloody rotten fish! DISGUSTING! Do miss my chilli and pepper crabs.... well, the good part I guess is not increasing my cholesterol level!

I guess I can only dream about the food I used to eat.... TTFN!
