Shopping for the Old Country

Nash Park

Now that the 10-day waiting period is over, I posted my log for the Jerkwater USA geocache. I hope this logging restriction does not set a precedent in this area because it is annoying. Then again, there seems to be a contingent of geocachers around here ready to help me ridicule and argue it to death. Having a gang of curmudgeons around is not all bad.

Anyway, as a followup to my previous post, I went to King Fung, the Chinese supermarket in River Edge, this evening to see if they had any products from Malaysia. When I arrived at their front door, I was disappointed to see that the supermarket has once again been downgraded by the county health department to "Conditionally Satisfactory". I hope it wasn't a mold problem.

It was harder than I thought to find Malaysian products there. King Fung imports most of their wares from China, Taiwan, and Japan. Eventually, I did find a few items and here's a picture. I got sugar cane and lychee drinks in cans, crackers in a big tin, and coconut cookies. The coconut cookies were on sale. King Fung had a few more Malaysian products that I didn't get because those were similar to the items pictured.

Of course, the old country's industries are not limited to snacks and drinks, but I would have to go to Micro Center to find more examples. :)

From fridayfiver:

1. Who never returns your phone calls?
I don't use the phone much. A better question might be who never returns my emails? :)

2. What was your favorite childhood toy?
I had lots of Lego.

3. Who is the last person you greeted at your door?
FedEx Ground carrier.

4. Who do you need?
Someone to help me protest geocaches with extraneous logging requirements. :)

5. Do you break hearts or do you have your heart broken?
Neither. (that I know of)

From thefridayfive:

If you were a full course meal what would you be?

Hot and sour soup. Because I'm hot (in terms of temperature, that is) and sour (I'm not mad at you; I'm mad at the dirt!), and I'm full of little bits and pieces that clutter up the soup.

I don't know. Is there a kind of salad with fried fish in it?

Fish. Fried. The fate of many fishes of the sea.

Upside-down pineapple cake. Acerbic, contrarian, and confusing.

and what complimentary beverage would you be?
Some fruity little drink because I can't shoot whiskey. :)
