Food That Keeps Me Sane

Posted by mamabok | Food From Home | Saturday 14 February 2009 3:06 am




Every now and then.. i need some food from home to keep me sane in this darn cold winter.  Do not be mistaken.. for winter here isn’t 3 months long.. but a good 6 months.. at the very least.   Summer goes so quick.. that you donch even know that Summer was here.   Every year.. as i go thru’ winter.. it becomes harder to stay here.  Had it not been for the business.. and the “ang moh’s” family and extended ones.. i would have certainly gone home.  The flight home is about 28hrs .. and i know my brat would not be able to take such a long flight, and i can’t go anywheres without her .. so there is no way .. i can come home now.. till she is older.

Thank God.. for blogging buddy turned into good friend – Barb and her awesome hubby, Andy.. who keeps sending stuff to me.  Had it not been this bowl of Curry noodles.. i would really feel like crying the other nite.. because my brat has been sick for a whole month now.  Eating this bowl of noodles.. keep my sanity.. and kept me going.  Thank you so much, Barb..!!!   Donch know what i would do without these authentic curries from home.

    Enjoy reading your blog. Even there are quite a number of Asians living on the Gold Coast, Australia and easy access to Asian food – I still feel ‘makan sick’ – where are the hawker food. Am trying to find some Asian friends which is not easy. All social activities are for the retirees and held in the morning – heh I have to work 5 days a time and far from retiring. My ang moh husband works from home, we have no children therefore meeting friends are not easy. Tried to be friendly with the two local chinese grocery shops – my goodness the lady boss thinks I am about to ask her for charity or am I the CIA asking far too many social questions – where is the damm smile. Damm it I am the customer and paying for the goods. All I want is to have some friends, not asking for a bloody loan. enjoy your curry noodles.

    Are there Prima Food Packet available in Canada? I miss home too. The next time I go back to Singapore I will buy a box of prima food packet and ship them home. Anyway, the cost of living in spore has increase drastically and yet the pay still havent caught up with the gst increase, inflation, etc.

    i guess all migrants feels the same way at some point in time no matter where we are or how accessible asian food or things are…comes the question, why we choose to migrate huh?

    i understand the feeling mamabok. that is why i replicate my favourite msian dishes quite often here to prevent me from going mad, especially in bermuda here. am sure u can get pretty decent chinese stuff from canada? or even chinese take-outs? probably just the food stuff its difficult? but you can order online asian food stuff.. that might help :)
