The Milk

I ran out of milk today.

So okay, quick call to lover and reminded him to get the milk before he gets home. Unfortunately the grocery store near the house also runs out of milk. Eh?

So we decided to go out and drag the already bored kids doing the oh-boring thing call grocery-shopping. I only wanted milk. So quickie this one.

Got there. Eyed a fruit muffin. Good for breakfast eh? Also got all those fried processed food. The muffin was an alternative to the fried ones.

Got the fruit juice. Cheese. Hmm they have fresh beansprouts today. Yipeee! Got half a kilo of those. I think I want to make spring rolls. Bought the pastries too.

Ah! Let's get the asparagus. The kids love them. It is such sexy vege, no?

Eh tapioca. Nak buat ubi rebus dengan kelapa parut campur gula lah.Steaming hot, then lembik-lembik cicah kelapa. Lover get the guy to parut the kelapa can?

Mango. Get them mangoes. They are getting less nowadays.

And grapes. Love them.

Eh got banana for frying one lah. Like pisang nipah. Yay! Buy buy.

Fresh coriander. Please please check that they are not parsleys.

Oh there's only a little meat left. And cooking oil.

I think I want to find the glutinous ricelah. Eat with mango and coconut milk. Ahh goodness of fatness.

Eh you know, Batrisyia suddenly has this thing about cupcakes. She found a recipe and has been pestering me to make them. (Actually I don't like the recipe, I think I want too find another). I need to get the icing sugar..and and food colouring. Hmm blue and yellow for now. Where the hell is pink? Sya must have pink! Oh let's go upstairs, I need to find a sifter..and ohh is this how the icing bag looks like. Man I am not creative to make the colourful toppings. Nasiblah.

Hey lover lover..look look. Scales! We want to get scales kan? OK we get the medium priced ones. Don't buy that 20 Riyal one. I don't trust too cheap things.

Then the kids found toys. Well..okaylah.

Went back and lover was complaining that I spent too much. Got pouty and decided to iron instead.

Oh mana janji manismu? Katanya nak bayar equivalent my pay dulu? Nasib baik saya sopan santun serta penyabar. Oh and thanks for the new skirt and pants ya..Boleh tak kasi saya 3 jam kat kedai buku pulak? Alone?

Funny, I never did like ironing you know. But now that I have no where to channel my anger, ironing seems to fill that void. Press! Press! Hot steam iron. I am getting pathetic day by day! And becoming more of a domestic goddess while at that.

Alone,it gave me time to do self reflect. And suddenly it hit me! I cursed in between the pressings.

We didn't even get the milk.

Lollies, tu lah kan..naturally memang kita kalau gi kedai, plan satu...sepuluh yang lain kita beli. Sometimes the idea what to eat & cook only come when we see things in kedai. I almost forgot abt ironing. Hehehe..dah lama tak pakai Iron. Betul jugak kan boleh release anger thru ironing..
Ibu kayu cicah kelapa tu sedap lah..

Lollies said...
