[x] [patung] no vegemite?

[x] [KuKuKaChu] nope. ran out months ago. always forget to buy it when i'm in singapore ...

[x] [riccardo] Hey get this! My 11 month old baby digs vegemite!

[x] [patung] can buy it in surabaya, the "singapore of East Java"

[x] [patung] or the singapore of indonesia maybe

[x] [riccardo] I acquired a taste for it about 10 years ago and often have some on hand for sandwiches now and she tried and is now addicted

[x] [patung] yes good to get them hooked early

[x] [Dilli] Vegamite was added onto the banned goods list in the USA yesterdaY

[x] [KuKuKaChu] many north americans seem to have an exagerated aversion to the stuff

[x] [riccardo] Kuku, your out of it mate. There are at least 5 or 6 supermarket chains in Jakarta that have it. Hero, Ranch Market, Bali Deli, Kemchicks, Sogo supermarket, some of the Carrefours etc. etc.

[x] [KuKuKaChu] ricc, i go to singapore more often than i go to south jakarta

[x] [riccardo] When i was in Cambodia there was only one modern-style market in the country run by an Aussie and I got some and the rest is history.

[x] [riccardo] Kuku, you can walk to the Hero at Sarinah, they have it for sure, and the Bali Deli is nearby at the new Sudirman Place

[x] [KuKuKaChu] don't get caught trying to smuggle it into the US, if ever you decide to visit

[x] [patung] vegemite is owned by americans

[x] [KuKuKaChu] ricc, no place in central jakarta has it, including hero, carreforre, sogo (sogo used to have it a few years ago)

[x] [riccardo] Sogo supermarket, at Sogo Plaz Indo H. I. circle

[x] [KuKuKaChu] patung, yes, they're still trying to figure out why australians buy the stuff.

[x] [KuKuKaChu] ricc, sogo doesn't have it any more

[x] [riccardo] The trouble and strife picked some up at the Giant in Plaza Semanggi yesterday!

[x] [KuKuKaChu] really? havent been to that place for years ... i'll check it out

[x] [riccardo] Ranch Market near my house even has marmite and other brands of vegemite for about 20-40k rp

[x] [KuKuKaChu] actually, my preference is for promite.

[x] [patung] arghhh! marmite doesn't count, hideous stuff, for foreigners

[x] [KuKuKaChu] much less salty

[x] [KuKuKaChu] marmite's for poms

[x] [riccardo] So i've heard, but I buy it all the time for Pom friend, who can't find West Jakarta

[x] [riccardo] I prefer eating vegemite. The baby loves it, pure vitamin B complex

[x] [riccardo] what's the other one made with beef extract or something?

[x] [KuKuKaChu] not sure ... promite is vegetable extract, vegemite is yeast extract

[x] [KuKuKaChu] ricc, yeah, kids seem to have this magnetic affinity for the stuff ... maybe they sense that they need it!
