Priorities

I don't walk into boutiques or shoe shops these days. I wear the same old clothes all the time. Somehow, these designer sales don't excite me anymore. Instead, I spend my time looking at pots and pans, rice cookers and chopping boards. Oh, I feel so housewifely now.

There are endless things to buy. I've just added a fan to SK's room so that he doesn't have to turn on the air-con all the time. I also bought a claypot and a small frying pan the other day. Yesterday I lugged home heavy bags of soya sauce, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and oyster sauce.

Next, I will have to get some real food. The fridge is still empty save for a bottle of red wine, some yoghurt and nectarines. The bag of apples has been languishing in there for weeks now. Apparently apple is not the favourite fruit in this household.

Come to think of it, I need garlic, ginger, onions and spices. And a whole lot of vegetables, eggs, meat and seafood. Oh, add soup ladle and spoons. Yes, and that apron too.

LOL BT, you're begining to sound like me. I probably use the same clothes everytime I go grocery shopping that they probably think I don't have any other clothes. and yeah, designer boutiques just don't impress me no more ...

Hi Nick, yes, I have that tendency to hoard staples when they go on sale too. I've stocked up on roasted eel (unagi) before until the whole freezer was full of that. Who knows, I may end up buying loads of that flavoured pepper you're hoarding too :-)

Don't forget you no longer have 3 refrigerators!

Oh JY, I haven't decided what to cook yet :-)
Let me see what I can get at the market on Sunday!

CH - At my parent's home, dad takes care of filling up the fridge. He's so good at that! And he never complains...
