Sunflower Seeds

For the past one month, there were 3 'birds' eating Sunflower Seeds in my apartment. The 3 'birds' are my mother, aunt and I. Actually, my mother and aunt started first. I joined them about 2 weeks ago. It is quite fun and sweet to chit chat and eat Sunflower Seeds with them. Too bad, we couldn't interest my father to join us.:)

The No. 1 'Big Bird', my aunt, is flying back to Singapore next Wednesday. I call her the No. 1 'Big Bird' because she could eat Sunflower Seeds for hours... non-stop.:)

The No. 2 'Big Bird', my mother, is going back to Malaysia in November. I am going to miss them and the noise that we make from eating Sunflower Seeds so much.

Malaysia Food Truck In New York City

I saw a Malaysia Food Truck in Manhattan today. I stopped and got a plate of Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice with Chicken Curry, Sambal Anchovies and egg).

From October 11 through November 19, some Malaysian restaurants offering Malaysian dishes will dispense FREE samples of Malaysian food in Manhattan and Queens.

Malaysia Government is putting a lot of effort to promote Malaysian food in New York Tri-State Area. They also include us (AsianSupermarket365) in their ad campaign in Food & Wine Magazine (November issue).

Hopefully with this campaign, more and more people in US will get more familiar with Malaysian food. Malaysian food is so good. I always tell people that it should be more popular than what we see today.

Curry Laksa

I don't know why I have been craving for Curry Laksa so much since this morning. I wish I could have a bowl of Curry Laksa (see above picture) cooked by my friend, Elen, NOW!!!

"No matter how hot and humid it is outside, I crave laksa regularly. This must be the Singaporean in me. Heehee. I love Prima Taste's Laksa Kit. It tastes exactly like the laksa I love back home. As with all Prima's products, laksa was easy and quick to prepare. I love that everything one needs to make a quick pot of laksa is available in one box. Dinner tonight was fantastic. In fact, halfway through eating his bowl of laksa, my American room mate had to stop and say, 'Holy crap, this is good!!!' His reaction made me laugh. We love Prima Taste!"
