Asiamat Brekstad

Whenever we travel, one thing that concerns me is food because I’m not adventurous in trying new foods and I love Filipino cuisines. Yes, love your own. I’m not sure yet if I can live outside the Philippines for so long because for sure, mamimiss ko ang pagkain



Asian store is very important to Filipinos who work or live outside the Philippines because they have the chance to buy foods from home country. When I was packing for our Norway trip, I was telling my mom that I will bring this and that. She said, no need to bring anything because we can buy in Norway naman and hindi naman daw niya kami gugutumin. 




I did not listen to her because I know how expensive the foods in Europe so I brought foods from the Philippines, hanggat kasya sa luggage namin. Hehehe! Tinatawanan na lang ko ng nanay ko sa dami ng dala namin na groceries from the Philippines.




Last Saturday, we dropped by at Asiamat Brekstad before going to Melissa. It was my first time there, before there is no Asian store in Ørland and my mom needs to go to Trondheim just to buy foods from Asia.

Asia + Mat (food)





The size of the store is like 7-11, I was happy to see different products from Asia, nakakamiss din makita yun pagkain natin. So we bought vegetables, tomato sauce, macapuno, nata de coco and many more. I saw Lucky Me Pancit Canton and it is NOK10 per piece, buti na lang nagdala ko nito kasi x5 ang price.

  1. Ang laki ng Asian Store! Sa Trondheim maliliit at masisikip yung stores nila.

  2. Mahal! Hahaha, but seriously I admire your being a strong-willed individual. Despite your mom's paalala that there's food, you still brought something from the Philippines. I guess your mom, who might find your gesture funny, is thankful still for the great savings.

    1. I even told her that if ever we will go back, I will bring more. Sayang din yung matitipid. :)

  3. Like you, ewan ko lang din kung mabubuhay ako ng matagal sa ibang bansa, knowing na mas mahal ang mga nakasanayan kong mga pagkain, lol! Mahal din ang Lucky Me Pansit Canton sa Saudi kaya si Dane, local brand nalang ang binibili. Pero bumibili parin sya ng mga pinoy brands ng snacks like Hansel, mogu-mogu at kung ano2x pa un. haha.

    1. True, yung simpleng pansit canton nga lang ang mahal na paano pa kaya yung iba. Nalulula ko sa price ng mga soy sauce, vinegar at fish sauce dun, hehehe! Mas mura nga kung local brand na lang ang bibilhin pero minsan kahit mahal kung gusto mo talaga, mapapabili ka. :)

  4. Nothing beats Filipino food (hehehe). Its good that there are specialty stores abroad selling Filipino products. Pero buti nalang you have brought along a mini-grocery (saved you a lot of kaching, mabigat nga lang).

  5. Ganyan din siguro gagawin ko if ever mag-sstay ako sa ibang bansa! At maghahanap din ako ng Filipino store. Ang dami pa man din natin food products na talagang hahanap-hanapin mo. When we were in SG meron din store na puro Pinoy products, so dun kami bumili ng snacks.
