Took a cab to the train station and we had a quick breakfast at the station. Nothing is nice and all sandwiches looks good to me but it is cold. I just had a bite of an egg sandwich and a cup of hot chocolate. BIG BOSS asked me what happen to me and I told him I don't like the cold sandwich and I can't even swallow another bite of it.

We before we start of our sourcing, we went over to the Loacker booth and had our meeting first. The Loacker booth is so simple and the branding is so stands out. Took picture with TL's leng chai principal, according to GS he is the Italian version of Slyvester Stallone. hihihi.... and next to me that 'ang moh' lady is his mom.
At about 12 pm we started with our Organic sourcing. Went over to our Malaysian booth and had our lunch at Chef Sun's booth. He is promoting the Organic Mee Suah. The fried mee suah he fried for us is so so so delicious and I had a big plate of it.
Met up with few potential suppliers and we discuss about pricing and the product itself. Looks promising to me but SHIT, the follow-up job is to be done by me. That is why VV told me " there is no FREE lunch in this world ".
The organic spread with 75% fruits and low sugar which is also suitable for diabetic patient.
Some organic pasta and ravioli
Some vegetarian products from Taiwan which BIG BOSS is interested. It is not chilled nor frozen vegetarian food, but it is stored in ambience temperature. I could say Malaysia is still far behind from other countries in term of producing innovative products and packaging. This is a real eye opener for me to see how advance is the technology in the other part of the world.
The fair ended at 6 pm and we still have 2 hours to kill before we head on to the Tabasco Dinner hosted by the principal for their distributors through out the world. The dinner started at about 9 pm after some cocktail session. This is a real torture dinner for me . It is a fine dining and look at the portion of the food, like 'chiak beh pah' one and all are so small portion and the dinner is served damn slow.
At 10 pm, I am too sleepy cos the time difference is 6 hours and Malaysian time should be 4 am in the morning. My eyes really want to close and I kept yawning. Sitting next to me is the distributor from Sweden and he is asking me I should be damn sleepy by this time. Yeah he is right.
The 3 uncles also ' beh tahan' liao and before we could eat the dessert, BIG BOSS wanted to go back the hotel and give the reason to the principal that I am not felling well. Really celaka.
A gift from Tabasco and I have yet to open up to see what izzit inside.
Reached hotel almost 11.30 pm and after taking bath, straight away went to sleep till morning 8 am.
***** Germany - Day 3 coming up next *****
