Things We Brought Back From Malaysia (2004-11-04)grocery and household items and stayed away from the standard touristy souvenirs/traps such as pewter and jewelry.
The most accomplished items I bought are two bags of 5-kg aromatic
rice from Thailand which tastes miles better than Japanese rice.
Each bag is only US 4 bucks instead of $28 here and its fragrance well
surpasses the kind sold in Tokyo. I also bought numerous packets
of seasoning mix, sauces and sweets, all of which are unavailable in
stores here. Oh, and I should mention the 3.5 liters Ribena
blackcurrent concentrate we lugged back which I absolutely adore.
I can drink that stuff all day long.
My friend says I'm just crazy going all the way to Malaysia to buy
grocery. I said, "No, I'm just happy because I bought everything
I LOVE in Malaysia, none will end up on a shelf gathering dust or
forgotten in the back of the closet." To me that is shopping
