Went to Asia for 3 weeks!!!
I have not posted much this past month as we went on a 3 week trip to Asia. Hong Kong, Beijing, and Singapore! It was fun and exciting.
With regards to my PA.. in Beijing, I only ate at McDonalds or at the Crowne Plaza Hotel restaurant, as English was not widely spoken in Beijing so it was too much of a risk to eat elsewhere.
In Hong Kong and Singapore we have friends (and Nancy has cousins) which made it much easier. I ate at Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and Italian restaurants. In Singapore, everyone speaks English so it was even easier than HK (although peanuts are more prevelant in Singapore than they are in HK).
I didn't eat much chocolate as most of it was 'may contains', but I could eat some as I often came across Nestle UK Kit Kats and Nestle UK fruitip candies. Even Hershey USA kisses were available.
Anyway, I had a 3 week trip to Asia with no problems. Thought I'd post about that, so you'll know that one day in the future, your PA children may be able to travel and see the world as long as they are knowledgable about their allergy.
I will post more about the trip later [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Now you know where I've been [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]
(note- I didn't post about it earlier, as I did not think it wise to post on a public web site that my home would be empty for 3 weeks)
