Argus, you are a mine of info about SE asian food! Thank you for the tip re pandan leaves (and the ZHB grocery store).

I found some gula jawa (again at the Lian Hua asian grocery in Wiedikon) for CHF3.65 - do you know if this is the same as gula melaka? It comes in a dark brown cylinder, as you described - pic below.
I have used that same Gula Jawa from Lian Hua for many times already in my Peanut Sauce, Sagu Gula Melaka, Bingka Ubi, Inti kelapa and Onde-onde. They are very good. The taste really reminds me of the Gula Kabung (http://www.mdlipis.gov.my/infolipis/produk/kabung) that I used to get via my uncle who lives in Pahang.
I love to shop for my Asian Groceries in Lian Hua as they sometimes sell the fresh Mi Kuning and dried tofu which are perfect for my Mi Kari. Plus they also sell good quality ikan bilis there. And yes, 15% off if you shop there on Saturday.
The big Asian Store next to Oerlikon station sells tempeh and fresh Kueh Teow.
Yummy yummy…if only I can get the fresh kerang, my Mi Kari and Fried Kueh Teow will be perfect then .
And plus...the Turkish Market close to my place sells the Malaysian Maggi Instant Noodle. They have Kari, Assam Laksa and Ayam flavor. Superb!!
