Please help name that food

Post by subcity » Thu, 12 Mar 2009 7:07 pm

Hello everybody!
I was born in singapore and lived there for about 5 years.
Every new year (i think it was the chinese new year) our chinese friends gave us sliced grilled or smoked meat. I loved the taste - very sweet (maybe honey or sugar). I think it was a traditional gift for new year.
Hopefully someone out there can halp me naming that "snack".
Thanks in advance!

Asia -- check the Wikipedia link above.

Bee Cheng Hiang has stores as far as China.
Was a little bit of the SG I missed in Shanghai when I was there.

If you're lucky, there may be a Singaporean or Malaysian student at a nearby university willing to brave customs restrictions to take some back, but unless you're really good friends even this is not likely.

Do you have friends in Singapore? You can get them to mail you one of those vacuum packed ones to you in Austria.

One of my friends was studying in US, and she missed mooncake. I end up mailing them to her, and she actually got it! Not sure how does the customs work in Austria... but you can just try. Make sure you dont put a return address, in case your friend get into trouble.

:shock:

That's a nice way of getting your 'friend' out of trouble!

That's how you have to do it. If you include a return address, if it happened to be confiscated, etc... then the sender get into trouble. But the receiver cannot foresee or stop anyone from sending things to him/her. Hence, if the post man show up with the police, the receiver can simply plead ignorance...

:P
