Hello!

Not sure if there is already a thread like this, but I would just like to know if there are products or items found in the Philippines that's similar to that in Australia. I have not been to Australia, but for us to prepare to adjust for the life there, maybe there are some products that would remind us of the taste or experience same as in PH. Are there any products and tastes similar to:

1. San Miguel Beer? :)
2. Kopiko 3in1 coffee?
3. Snacks like Clover, Chippy, etc?
4. Filipino Restaurants, or similar taste of Max's Fried Chicken?
5. Purefoods TJ Hotdogs?
6. Lily's Peanut Butter?

If you have some other products in mind, not just food (like your fave deo or safeguard soap) other that those above, you may share them here. :)

    @ysabelle I see. Thanks. I'll be at Glenfield in my first few weeks in Sydney (may relatives kasi ako dun). Then I'll see kung kailangan ko lumipat closer to uni.

    Wow ang layo pala ng filipino stores, close-ish to CBD hehe.
