  3. But are they good ones? And have you got an article about current prices of food in Penang - that would be interesting. I see you have a Tesco; I could do a Tesco comparison with my local store here in North Wales! I know it's not completely relevant without taking lots of other things into consideration but it might be a bit of fun to do. All the best, enjoy the holiday period. Annie

  4. Haha. They are good enough, but £6 a box!! Not £1.89 and 'buy one get one free'.

    May well do a food article at some stage, it's not been a priority as yet simply because once your are here, that's it. Unlike comparing prices with some items that you can bring with you and avoid buying here. Upshot is most things that are obvious western imports have a heavy premium (e.g. Weetabix at £5 a box). Cheese is pricey and of course booze.

    Tesco I don't rate to be honest. It's OK but I prefer Cold Storage. I might put up some specific prices when I get round to it.

    Have a good New Year
