Sydney-Yes, Indonesian is yummy too!

maltese-living in Singapore sounds like a wonderful adventure! DH's company has lots of work there and if it wasn't for all the kiddos I'd think more seriously about it. Now if I was real desperate for chocolate I might try to figure out a way to eat that off the cricket. Shocked

Unfortunately my least favorite of the types of Asian cuisine is probably Korean but I've found some things I love. Not a huge fan of Kimchee. I went to Korea by myself to bring home Isaac and I was a bit scared not having a clue what I was ordering or eating. The fun part of Korean dining is they bring you all these little bowls of different side dishes and of course rice.

Inky-I always order something different at Vietnamese restaurants because I like to try new things. Typically I don't like pork very well but their pork dishes are yummy! The soups are also delicious. What I like best are the salad rolls and they are very simple. Just some vermicelli noodles, fresh herbs (especially mint), lettuce, carrot, cucumber -really anything you like. Adding shrimp or even sausage is good too if you want to make a meal of this. Then you get the dry rice paper wraps. They are paper thin and seem odd at first. All we do is bring a bowl of hot water to the table and dip the wrap in the water until it is soft. Then family style add things to your wrap. You could use anything for dipping sauce from a sweet red chili sauce, soy sauce or peanut sauce.

Luvtv, Have you went to Singapore on a trip with DH?? It is beautiful and the safest place in the world. We lived there for 3 years and I would have liked to stay longer but DH thought he needed to retire. Sad
You would not know you were eating crickets unless someone told you. At least they were better than some of the things that I tried. My friends and I decided to try the local fruit "Durian" - - Oh, what an experience. If you can hold your breathe and eat at the same time you will be ok!! They are banned from the lifts in Singapore because of the odor. Razz

No, I've never been. Neither has DH. He'd have to ask to get involved in those projects. I go back and forth on wanting to raise the kids here in beautiful Oregon and wanting to raise them to have an adventurous spirit. Luckily neither choice is wrong and we are lucky enough to be able to make choices.
We have grand plans when the kids are raised. Letting his company move us to lots of different exciting locations. Thats only 17+ years away. Wink
If the offer is good and the location interesting I'm sure we will be packing our bags. Very Happy
Think I'll pass on that fruit. You were brave to try it. Very Happy
