So we hooked up with other expats family to have the big celebration "our way". And had all the necessary stuff prep for the big bang. Yep, big bang, if only I didn't receive a late request from my boss on a business trip to SG.
Well, let's just say there's quite a bit of self interest that i gladly accepted the assignment.
It was less than a week before the trip, so we basically pick up anything in Sainsbury which we can think can interest our Singaporean folks
1) Scottish Shortbread.
This is basically just butter cookies, but my niece who is a big fan says those from UK beats those from the local supermarket.
2) PG tips tea bags.
We saw some leftover xmas pack on the shelf, and they are the same price as the standard ones.
PG tips was first launch in UK, and believed to aid digestion. I do not know how much truth in the health benefits but i love the revolutionary freeflow pyramid teabag. The bags were developed using unique 'webbed' fibres that allow the water to reach the leaves faster, resulting in a quicker brew. So now you don’t have to wait as long for your cup of PG tips! These are all the technical stuff I read from the box.
This tea is great for home made teh-tarik, I must confess!
Most people (inluding me) thinks London is expensive, But believe it or not, the chocolates cost a fraction than it would in Singapore.
5) The Nespresso
