I’m already living in Malaysia for 2 months, however, I’m still not able to go out individually to explore new things, so sorry that unable to share new recipes at the stage. Although I can’t going out now, but still feeling some different about grocery shopping way between Malaysia and Hong Kong, so let’s talk some of it.
在香港，一般也在街市及超市買食材，雖然也有一些批發商會在美食節或工廠大廈以零售方式發售，但美食節只是一年一度，而工廠大廈的商舖不是真的太方便吧。 但在馬來西亞除了街市及超市外，還有很多途經可以買到平、靚、正的食材，因為有不少流動小販，以美食車的形式在不同地方販買，所以也買到新鮮食材；另外，由於馬來西亞有本地出產的食材，所有肉類及蔬果也可以找到負責人直接從農場賣買，只需要使用不同的手機通訊軟件下訂單，就可以新鮮地從農場直接送到府上。 亦有不少好像作者一樣喜歡自家製作食物，上載到社交網，就可以進行網上銷售。
Generally, we usually go to wet market and supermarket to buy our groceries and food in Hong Kong, although you can still buy some food in reasonable price in food festivals and from wholesale companies, but food festivals only open once a year and even some wholesale companies got open their retail shop, however, the location is not easy to reach. But, in Malaysia, there are many ways you can buy food and groceries anywhere like food trucks, still can find fresh food there. On the other hand, there are many local foods that grow and raise in Malaysia, so you are buy meats and veggies directly from farms, only order from social apps, then deliver to your door step; some people like me, love to make own food, also can sell it online as well.
For the imported food, there are not much choice in Malaysia, but many Japanese seafood wholesale store here, so you can buy very reasonable frozen seafood. Also, you can easy to buy imported fruits in night market with very very good price too.
馬來西亞一般來說，所有的進口食材也比香港便宜得多，例如 ：日本紫薯 – 香港要在大型超市才買到，而價錢卻很貴，但在馬來西亞，夜市已經有售賣，馬幣10元/kg (港幣18元), 真的很便宜，對不？
In general, all imported food are much cheaper than Hong Kong, i.e. Japanese purple sweet potato, you can only find in large supermarket in Hong Kong and the price is so so expensive, but here, in Malaysia, you can easy to find in night market which is only RM10/kg (around HK$18).
而本地食材，真的平得不能相信，一包小蕃茄只是馬幣2元 (港幣 3.7元)，本地沙律菜包也是馬幣7元(港幣13元)；作者找到本地有機豬農場，買來7kg有機豬腩肉，也只是馬幣210元 (港幣385元)。
For the local food, for Hong Kong people, really unbelievable price, a small pack of cherry tomato, it’s only RM2 (around HK$3.7), local salad mix pack only RM7 (HK$13). I have also found a local organic pig too, I bought 7kg of pork belly, it’s only RM210(HK$385) and deliver to your door step.
I’m now so thankful that I’m living in Malaysia, and understand what’s reasonable price of food, it’s not like Hong Kong, it’s all imported which was passed hand in hand for several agents and companies, then only sell the product in market, so we are buying a very very expensive food and products that totally unacceptable.
