Missing the small things.


Since moving to Redmond there are some simple things that I miss (and I believe this to be true of most people moving from their home country), one of the things I miss is a decent curry, sure there are curry places around the Redmond area but somehow the curry is not quite the same as the UK (btw, I had some fantastic curries in Bangalore/India a couple of years ago, one of my colleagues ate curry for breakfast, lunch and evening meal!) – one of the highlights from my recent trip was getting a take away in Portsmouth (my brother recommended the Cosham Balti House – interestingly, my uncle and father also recommended the same Cosham Balti House) – I decided to have the Chicken Rogan, not very spicy (although I do like a spicy curry once in a while), good sized portions and extremely tasty… I wonder if they deliver to Redmond?


Apart from meeting with friends and family I think the Curry was definately one of the highlights of the stay in the UK – We also visited the recently opened Spinnaker Tower which has Europe’s largest glass floor – the views were spectacular.

    I found a Pakastani supermarket in Kirkland that does amazingly good boil-in-the-bag curries. Don’t tell anyone.

    Having a little bit of a sweet tooth I miss english chocolate quite a bit. I’ve found quite a few sites on the web that sell english food/teas/cereals etc etc http://www.wisechoice.com for instance.

    The thing I really miss is english comedy shows. http://www.sendit.com has a bunch of good stuff, but compare the prices against http://www.amazon.co.uk because the prices are not always the same. I bought a multi-format DVD and VCR so get to watch content that is only available in PAL format.

    http://www.netflix.com also has some of the more popular (or at least better known) comedies.
