    I'm an expat and i need ale. i can sort of get it too, but it's 2.75€ a bottle n i'm a bit too skint for such goodness, boooo.

    still, 2 euros for a decent bottle of wine so not in need of red cross/urban ale provisions, worry not!

    Miss Caphat I want it that way

    yes! I do! I'm not sure what though either :D there was nothing in particular I developed a strong affinity for when I was there, though I liked most things I tried...hmm, surprise me?
    Would you like anything from the states?

    just saw this...any of the Nessie stuff or the heather would be awesome.
    maybe I could send you some New England trinkets or maple sugar candy or something?

    I think if there were Wetherspoons in China, then it would be the most perfect place to live in the world (apart from the authoritarian government)

    My local has ESB and London Pride in bottles at least and I've found Pedigree and some other decent stuff about town. Do miss a proper pint of course. There's some micro-brew place not far off in a nice courtyard loads of people raved about, but me dad's homebrew tasted better.

    The thing I miss most about spoons is the various choices of cider, the veggie breakfast and the veggie burgers as well as it's relative cheapness.

    I can get veggie burgers not far from here but horrendously over-priced by local standards so rarely go when I can have veg fried bing for 50p. Cider I was never much for, even tho we moved down to the West Country when I was a teen and I was forced to admit it's good stuff. Just had a taste for ale by then I think.

    I have found an English pub in Dongguan that does good veggie breakfasts but the veggie burgers aren't up to scratch. They don't do any cider at all though and it takes over an hour for me to get there :(

    Have you tried the veg sausages you can get? They make good butties, not great but good for a fry-up-like experience. You can get them on line - I'll link to a Beijing site but a mate who sees the brand should be able to find someone who'll deliver them to you: http://www.99sushi.com/goods-51.html or these: http://www.99sushi.com/goods-46.html (second sort better imo).

    If anyone wants anything from Libya, I'll be there long-term starting this week. Might take a while to get myself sorted out and hopefully no militias will take over the airport this time. I know what I'm going to be missing even before I've gone, but I don't rate the chances of a slab of Kronenbourg making it out to me.

    If anyone off here comes to Istanbul, let me know. There are always things I'm after that we can't get here. I'll give you the money plus take you for a nice cup of tea.

    No plans to go to Istanbul but go on then, what do you need? I'll send you stuff. Done that before for someone else who moved abroad, the excitement and anticipation while they waited to receive the parcels was fun :)

    If anyone Norn Irish urbanites fancy sending a bag or two of Tayto Beef and Onion crisps to Oz I would actually weep with gratitude.

    Oh happy day! Last time I looked up the tayto web site you could only get cheese and onion online which I can bloody buy here anyway ( at vast expense, but still!) I'm getting my first pay check on Wednesday and I am going to buy loads of tayto and not share them with anyone!

    No problem - just don't go mad and eat the entire box at once. Or open all the packets and roll around on them. Unless you want to, that is.

    Ooh that's very nice. I'm actually all right at the moment and I'm off to the UK next month but I shall bear that in mind. I'd also be happy to send Turkish things as swaps :)

    Aw, so nice of you, Miss-Shelf, to do a random act of kindness for ice-is-forming, how lovely! :)

    I just logged in for a different reason, but spotted a notification that someone had 'liked' something in this thread, so clicked to see what was happening.

    Any more requests, anyone, while I'm here on a Friday night and tipsy on wine and amenable to saying 'Yes'? :D
