I'm gonna jump in straight to my chaotic "adventure" at ShengSiong today..
I've always complained about not be able to get ripe bananas whenever I decide to bake some good old traditional banana muffin.. **also cause by the time I decided..it's late afternoon** FRESH RIPE BANANAS at ShengSiong for $1.20! Insane! Insane! I love Chinese New Year Sprees!! :)
So foolish me... grabbed ONLY one! :)) *So SMART!** So I am home right now.. feeling super lousy cause I didnt get more!I am not even going deeper into this... **A Confirm sign age is catching up..**
(WARNING! Don't laugh..it'll get to you sooner or later)then it's the veges....cause the staff was insanely packing 3-4 types of veges all in a bag and rolling them at $1!! that is crazyyyy!!! and at the same.. they're all still fresh and green!! My family's going vegetarian for a week,baby!!
I have an ultimate weakness for SPINACH! as long as I they're new on the shelves.. GREEN and fresh! GRAB!
ROUND Spinach! even better!GRAB!
they taste better than sharp spinach! Do you agree??
Spinach soup rocks! toss in half cut fishballs! They go so well with hot fragrant fluffy white rice..! YUM!
In fact I must stress that it wasn't such a pleasant shopping experience... Aunties were grabbing the $1 bags like pros! So me.. being the
Each time I grab a bag before the Auntie beside me does.. IT feels like a total triumph!hahaha!! The pleasures of a STAY-AT-HOME-MOM!
So this Auntie beside me (wearing ORANGE wedges to the market, MIND YOU!) I suspect she likes round spinach too! We didnt say anything but it seemed like we're eyeing for the same bundle!
She tried to "accidentally" nudge me with her elbow.. The nerve!!! * NO MORE MRS NICE!
So when the ShengSiong guy threw a new bag in front of us.. I spread my "wings" and catch it airborn!
and then I toss it into my bag and walk away like a Shengsiong Queen! BAH! TAKE THAT AUNTIE! **PFFFT** I may look not wear ORANGE WEDGES but I'm NIMBLE!
GOOD BUYS always come in the same package with LONG QUEUES... the place literally turned into a wet market with male staff shouting "LELONG LELONG" AH!
The atmosphere was intense and hyped! Their calls Encouraging all the Aunties and Grannies to grab grab grab! I think before 4 can close shop!
Inspite of my regrets.. I am happy with my purchase.. nothing like being able to grocery shop and pay more than half the regular price! Casey wanna call me cheapskate or poor?? I dun bloody care! It feels awesome to get good produce at a good price!
So I am finally home..Chillin' for a lil while before I start mashing the bananas for a good recipe.. :))
In the meantime.. enjoying another new flavour of Dairy Farmers.. It's "Field Blueberries" this time.. Texture smooth and Creamy.. **as always like it's other flavours.. which is why I this brand is my ultimate pick!**
If you're a berries lover.. this would please you very much.. the chunks of blueberries burst with slightly sourish goodness and complements the also "blueberry" flavoured yoghurt.. I would say it is very rich with blueberry flavour.. unlike some brands I've tried that literally toss in the berries into plain flavoured yoghurt.. so you won't get the real berry deal..
I would give it a 7/10 cause I'm not such a berries fan... I usually need to be in the mood to wanna have something on the sourish side..so that still retains Dairy Farmers "Yellow Box Honey" at top place!
I have actually tried another flavour by Dairy Farmers... The flavour falls within the berries family.. BUT with a slight unique twist to the texture... and I would have to admit.. I might just replace "Yellow Box Honey" with this "particular one"..
I am getting another pack of "that one" and will share with you my review soon..
In the meantime..if you're in the mood for a low fat berry treat.. "Field Blueberries" is worth a try!
Thank for reading...and Have a good weekend
