What I've been up to all morning 🤓 issokay you guys go work I also need to be productive!

What happens when you leave your husband by himself for 6 months...
Tons of expired food in the fridge and house hahaha.
The eggs and yoghurt expired in FEBRUARY leh. Plus the yoghurt is UNOPENED. What's going on here Karthik??! The potatoes and garlic all grew shoots already, I had to throw everything out.

In his defense, he actually super semangat 3 months ago, wanted to make butter chicken and got all the ingredients, then promptly moved on with his life and forgot all about it after hahaha

Oh hero market, how I have missed thee!

Omg I hate to be that annoying girl who came back from abroad and complain about Malaysia (which I almost never do, I love my home!)

BUT

Groceries are relatively SOOOO expensive here after being used to much cheaper groceries in the UK. Cereal is like £2-3 a box and if you don't convert..Heck even if you convert it's about the same/cheaper in the UK??!

Plus milk, mushroom, berries, pasta sauce etc are more expensive here. Especially mushrooms, RM9 vs £0.60 (RM3.50) 😱😱😱

So I'm doing all the things that Karthik has no time to do, like get rid of the 3 bags of coins he has accumulated in the last few years. He's a huge coin hoarder I tell you, everyday comes back and empties his pockets of coins and now we have RM300+ worth of them!

Anyway went to the bank and they refused to take them in cos coin machine rosak so I'm slowly using them to pay for everything now lol. Couldn't pay for my groceries (RM100+ for <15 items 😱) cos the cashier would kill me haha

Hanging out with the twins and Amelia tonight! I haven't seen them in 6 months and they've grown so much already 😱😘❤️

twinbuzz Must be a men thing to hoard coins. And I agree with you that groceries are generally expensive in Malaysia. That's why my mom always say living cost is high, but she mainly refers to groceries.
