I believe the large flag was flown by an ardent protestor. A reminder about the debate over the loss of the old train service.
Things have moved on and the new cuisine which is usually delicious is not exactly like the old stir fry. Hunt through all sorts of diets, kale, low carb, paleo and more kale, be side tracked by wonderful feasts and exaggerated ambitions to try this that and the other without giving in to it - this time -to come up with the desired meal.
This time the result was tasty and the flavours were usual with a little lift as the thinly sliced chicken pieces had five spice mix, lemon grass, grated ginger and garlic applied an hour before cooking, grated lemon rind and juice added to the usual stir fry ingredients lastly coriander and spring onion. The Hoi sin sauce was rather salty and salt is usually avoided in my dishes.

A letter in Traveller Feb 2 (Sydney Morning Herald)
....I too, have a list but I also have a spreadsheet with a detailed clothing list. My spreadsheet, updated for destination and season, has been the subject of many a joke for many years. However, last year my mother died five days before I was due to fly to Morocco and her funeral was the day before. My spreadsheet saved the day and we managed to board that plane with everything we needed and everything done that needed to be done.
