Not good indeed. Good thing I went before zika got there.
Or at least before it was discovered...

True, but I didn't get any bites then, so I'm good either way. Plus it's been longer than 6 months.

Anyone know or has in the past purchased food from Awafi kosher in Singapore to vacuum pack, kind of what Pomegranate does?, I know itís not pomegranate but we are flying from SIN to MLE.

Is Awafi pricey?

Yes, we did this exact thing for our MLE trip last September.  The food was really tasty and reasonably priced.  They also made sure to cook and freeze it ahead as I asked.  The only thing they didn't do correctly was to double wrap it with labels, for reheating.  They also put them in like plastic containers and some of them got squished and cracked in our luggage.  I ended up double wrapping them in foil myself, with the chef at the hotel and putting our own sticker labels the chef gave us, that the kitchen knew they weren't allowed to open.  Make sure to specficially request they they NOT be put in plastic Tupperware type containers and that they need to be put into aluminum tins, and double wrapped for oven warming.  I paid a little more and ordered via Koshwhere.com because I wanted to order online and have better recourse if there were issues (and I was glad I did and they refunded me part).  The Koshwhere.com menu also had a lot more options then they originally e-mailed me when I contacted them directly.  Bottom line, I would order from them again, they did deliver it completely frozen and the food was good but I would be VERY specific about how I wanted the food packaged.
