    Those scrap bak kua are nice.
    I got 1kg for last year CNY because they sold out their whole piece one.

    there is this excellent place in Perth that serves really good laksa (on Sats). Taste like what you get in Singapore or better. It is opened by a singaporean.... can't remember the name, but it is on the way to Morley shopping centre.

    Need to ask my friends for the name....

    Talking about the US, I have tried this place called Old Penang in Chicago's Chinatown. The owner is a pure-breed Malaysian. Their laksa is the closest one I ever tried. Their satay, however, is another story. The spicy peanut sauce is so thick you can spread it like peanut butter.

    Also, I had been to some Singaporean/Malaysian food joins in New York, San Francisco and LA. Some of them are quite expensive, while others are just there to bluff the ang mos and ABCs.

    While I was schooling in New York some years ago, I frequented this Thai-Vietnamese eatery which served, get this, our good'ol roti prata with chicken curry dip. They called it "Thai fried hot cakes with spicy curry sauce".

    Whether it is roti prata or Thai fried hot cakes, they are heavenly to me.

    aiya
    just tell them that its for personal consumption.
    but they dont check anyways.
    however my friends are more daring.
    they bring in open packets of bakgua this past month.
    i only bring back can or processed packed sealed food (by factory... not self)
    that way i can defend myself in case of a check

    haha

    there are tons of stuff in NYC..
    as well as in NJ . there is a PENANG here too!=)
    if you come to the east
    let me know

    While in the US, I don't mind settling for the "Taiwan Xiang Niu Rou Gan" (Taiwanese beef jerky). Better than its pork sibling IMHO.
