Nicolekiss goes Grocery Shopping

The other day I was chatting with a friend who is a model and an actress and wondered how she keeps so fit all the time.

It’s finally time I sit down and tell myself, this sluggish lazy lifestyle has got to stop. Ever since I stopped travelling and decided to work for a while and to finish my study, my life revolves around my computer, my computer and my computer.

It’s not helping my bum and it’s not helping my shoulder, I can actually feel cellulite growing behind it. Dang~

So I decided to change my way of diet, as advised by my beautiful friend.

Hence I called up a friend and headed out to my nearby Giant Hypermarket for some groceries.

I like Giant. It’s nice and has everything that I want locally. Tesco is nice and has a wide variety of stuff I usually would like to buy that’s imported from the UK, like cheese, crackers, snacks, and lots of fresh fishes, but they pale in comparison when it comes to raw vegetables and other local products and they are mostly halal so it’s not possible for you to buy ham here.

Another thing I love about Giant is their staffs are always so friendly, and their vegetables are freaking cheap. I bought a bunch of “sawi” and it costs only 39 cents, get it from Tesco it’ll be at least RM1.20.

Support the local they say. Support the local I shall.

pineapples
Pineapples~ Me like…


I can’t help but to stop at many of the wonderful fruity display there.

grapes


Many times I was so tempted to buy them. But no! “Focus Nicole, focus.”

And I went on to the can food section to look for inspiration for dinner tonight.

can foods


In the end I bought some raw ingredients instead of the can foods. Frozen peas are definitely better than canned peas.

That’s rice for my friend in the Styrofoam bungkus since I’m supposed to go carb-less.


After getting all that we needed, we proceeded to cashiers.

eggs and vege
Eggs, we must always have eggs

But what about diner??

Ok la ok la, we finish dinner first k?

Mind you I haven’t cook in a loooonnnnggg time. So here it goes…

This is my favourite cooking ingredient, it’s as versatile as eggs. Maybe because I used to stay in England and everything there are about tomatoes, potatoes, eggs. Cheese, pasta and wieners come second.

Preparation


I cooked three simple dishes, this being one of my favourite dishes when I was in UK. I must warn you though; I have a very weird diet. And it mostly consists of tomatoes and eggs. I just lurrrve tomatoes and eggs.

And finally, the minched buffalo.
