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.
