Indus ladies has indian ladies spread across the globe. Each one of us have had different experiences living "ABROAD". Why dont we start sharing some of our NRI experiences with others!!! I am from bangalore, living in malaysia. The Muslim majority of Malays love hindi movies and thus we get to watch hindi movies even on national channel! The Chinese form the back bone of business community here. There are also a dominant number of tamilians and sikhs who have been here for generations from the time of British raj. This is a warm society and relates to indian culture more or less. But still i found many a hard pill to swallow during my early days here - mainly FOOD as cited below. We are vegetarian. On the first day of our arrival we thought we would eat in a roadisde restaurant (There are many such restaurants here which they call MAMAK STALLS). The man in the stall said there was only one thing on the menu - 'noodles with soup'. Very tired to find another place to eat, we thought we would continue and asked him for veg.noodles. To our amazement, he removed all the meat pieces from the soup and offered us the "VEGETARIAN NOODLES SOUP" . We politely rejected his offer went to a near-by shop and bought some bread and jam. But for people who are non veg, this place is a paradise.Many of my friends from india love the sea food here.
