OK, Candido Miro's olives stuffed with spicy chorizo are good as far as olives go - not too salty or acidic. But where's the chorizo? The bit stuffed inside each olive is far too small to add any flavour. Produced in Spain, a 300-gram tin sells for HK$22.90 from Fresh Mart in Sogo, 555 Hennessy Road, Causeway Bay (tel: 2833 8338).

I'm not sure what the appeal is of the 'super long' noodles in this Itsuki brand of instant ramen. I did a double take when I saw the price - HK$69, but when you realise that each pack serves three, it doesn't seem as expensive. Instant noodles are pure comfort food for many of us, and the Japanese brands tend to do them the best.

Forks in the road

Last week, my cameraman Leon McCarron and I entered the legendary karst landscapes of the Li River, near Guilin. We have now walked about 4,000 kilometres, and have fewer than 1,000 to go. It's the beginning of the end. Over these six months of walking, surviving and slogging, a big part of each day has been finding food. These are the top three meals we've had.

The cost of living cheaply

A Beijing office worker, Wang Hao, became an online sensation in 2008 when he called on people to live on just 100 yuan (HK$120) a week to encourage them to embrace a simpler way of life. Wang launched the experiment after home loan payments on his new flat took up half his salary, and after realising he was frittering his money away on empty spending.
