A Sarawakian Laksa in Melbourne: Day 7

There is something about Sarawakians and our laksa. It's like the English & their tea. We could travel all the way to Melbourne, & we'd still want our laksa there.

On the 7th day in Melbourne, I cooked laksa for Roger & his housemate, Anson. He practically slurped the whole thing up & proclaimed it as being as close to the real thing. Anson of course didn't know what it was but he has been hearing Roger yakking about it.

I know it probably looked like the real thing, but I also think that Roger has been away from Kuching for far too long. He has been talking about Sarawak laksa, even to girls he just met.

This one's made from Mrs Yeo's paste, brought all the way from Kuching, for the boys in Melbourne. Will blog the recipe one day.

ehmmm i was honest and told them this is laksa paste. this ppl (esp melbourne) seems to be pretty accustom to asian and all their 'weird' eating habits. anyway, mine is commercially packed.

Nee, where can you get Mrs Yeoh's laksa paste in Kuching?

NEE said...

hmmmm good question i always order through her, it is done by her student called B. mrs yeoh teach ppl how to make laksa paste but i have not learn from her because Greg thinks it is ridiculous to go through all the hardwork and pay high tuition fees when it is widely available in kuching. i will ask for B's number and post it here.

Hi, I'd like to take the laksa paste class, do you have the lead ? thanks. I am down to my last two pack of Swallow brand....and the custom is getting pretty strict nowadays, they even take away Maggi Mee. Not declaring which I did many time is kinda risky because they do random check.
