When the time came to load my luggage with things that I needed to bring to my work place in Penang a couple of weeks back, I intentionally did not forget some work essentials like shirts and silk ties, a pair of pants and some things that would usually make my gastric pits happier…
Now, my personal 3-tiered vault at the office (faculty room) has been stuffed with few cup noodles from Pinas (because I hate their bland and curried stuffs here; I prefer our local Seafood and Beef flavored cup noodles), Boy Bawang, Nagaraya, Flat tops, Dingdong Mix Nuts and of course, Choc Nut.
From Clarkfield Pampanga’s DMIA to Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia to Kuala Lumpur then finally, Penang, I almost strained my wrist with my luggage after I filled it with my favorites from Pinas : 4 cans of Century’s Spanish Style Bangus Fillet and 10 cans of…
I know most terminals abroad have rules on bringing in processed foods and canned goods even on checked in luggages. Apparently, here in Malaysia, we’re still allowed to bring such; although I have to admit I wrapped each pair of cans in newspapers, secured them with tape and asked my wife to arranged them neatly inside my luggage.
Let me tell you that I was not paid for this, but it’s really one of those canned goods that I cannot live without.
We have imported corned beef cans here, like those from Brazil but for me, nothing beats PF.
Do you like canned goods? What’s your favorite?
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
PS : I forgot to bring local sardines and hotdogs (they don’t have hotdogs here, only beef and chicken dogs).
I also left a kilo of PF Fiesta Ham in our fridge back home (read: excess baggage ito!).
To anyone dropping by Penang, you already have idea of what pasalubong I want from Pinas.
Syempre, imported na tawag namin dyan!
