Wheee..... I finally got my food supplies from Singapore arriving in the form of two excess luggages flown in from Thai Airways attached to two Singapore ladies!
And on the very first night, the food to satisfy my craving for Singapore food is the one featured above. My Maggi noodles (Assam Laksa flavour)!!! I love this flavour but I’m not a fan of the actual Assam Laksa. And from all the other flavours in the Maggi instant noodles range, this is the most unique as no other brands cam successfully replicate it!
A little history about Maggi.. yes it’s a family name and it originates from Italy. Julius Maggi, an Italian-Swiss was the founder of the Maggi name, being a pioneer in industrial food production. The popular Maggi sauce (a dark sauce that we can often find in supermarkets) was a cheap substitute for meat extract and it became widely used in culinary dishes worldwide especially Germany.

I know Instant Noodles are “evil” as they are made like an industrial product which give the impression that we are eating cooked cardboards. They contain almost no nutrients that is essential to the daily diet except Carbohydrates. Want to get a week’s sodium intake in a single serving? Try eating a pack of Instant Noodles Although brands like Maggi has introduced noodles that contain no MSG, no transfat and less salt, it did not go down well with Instant Noodles lovers such as me!
Back to my craving, and yes, this is the number one item on my shopping list that I sent to my two mates. I call it the SOS food. Yay!! I can survive this winter in Croatia now! What’s your SOS food?
