Noodles & Expat Life

noodles and expat lifeYesterday,  I feasted with this Filipino-style chicken soup noodles with friends. In the Philippines,  it’s called chicken/beef mami. 🙂 Suddenly felt home.

The bowl is usually stuffed with cooked noodles,  carrots, Chinese cabbage, spring onions,  toasted garlic, chicken/beef and egg. Beef or chicken soup is just added later on.

Life abroad

Food back home is one of the things you’ll miss when you start living in another country or state. 10-20 years ago,  the availability of ingredients can be very rare that you have to bring supplies from your home country whenever possible. Now,  things have changed and many stores and supermarkets are selling ingredients and goods from other countries for a higher cost most of the time. 🙂 Though not everything you crave for is available,  the few that are here can bring instant remedy to homesickness.  🙂

Do you live far from home?  What food do you miss most?  🙂
