i'm rather excited, as through some browsing i found a source for raw cow's milk and some goat's milk as well.
@iratherfly: good to know about the superbags, hadn't looked at the dimensions clearly, and it makes total sense. this week is extremely busy for me, but i'll probably pm you in the near future about supplies.
as for cheese culture, i'd say the monied class in singapore has definitely embraced cheese, though more as a status symbol than anything else. i know some who've studied abroad who love cheese for all of its pleasures, but cheesemaking still seems to be an art few are interested in (i've only been here 2 months, so take that with a big tub of cheese salt). most varieties can be had, albeit for a hefty price in most cases (upwards of $50/lb at some cheese specialty shops). i guess we're at the tip of a cheese void, and i haven't seen all that much from australia besides the commercial brands.
