So Cheap!

If there's one thing I enjoy about living in Singapore, it's gotta be the really affordable groceries.

See, every time I go grocery shopping in KL, the bill comes up to RM100+, easily. So far I haven't reached that record (thank god) here.

So there was one day when Su En and I went grocery shopping and we bought so many things, but!!! What's even more shocking was the bill!

I'll put the items into figures and you'll see what I mean... I'm going to put in an estimate of what I can get for the similar items in KL ;)

It's almost like a direct exchange rate. How come!! My favourite has to be the ultra cheap blueberries! It's like the good ol' Houston days when I would load on the blackberries (they are like USD2 for a small box) and pile them on with ice-cream. Bliss!!

Now I use them for smoothies ;)

  2. prices almost comparable here if bought bulk at warehouse prices....

    Apo @ #16 Maggi mee Kari Letup? Makan first then letup?

  3. You mean after conversion? Some things are surprisingly cheap! But some things that I used to take for granted are quite pricey, like bolster, pillow, water jug -.-
