Appreciation And A Heartful Meal In Tesco


Reanaclaire is back in business!  (she is back to normal.. have been AB-normal lately.....)

Thanks for all your comments and concerns... I really appreciate that... blogging is like a network connection, getting connected and  knowing so many of you from all over the world... this is what I call.... AMAZING!

For the past few days, yours truly here was really down and out.... physically and emotionally drained... in fact yesterday while practising the worship for today's Sunday service, I was sort of "reprimanded" for singing in such a monotonous voice... but thank God, after some prayers and a heartful dinner, my voice was back to normal for this morning's service, I was in my high spirits again... let me sing...  la ... lalalala....   laaa...... laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa............

After the practice, I thought I would not have any mood to eat but to my astonishment, my stomach was actually "growling" by the time we reached Tesco. Quickly we ordered a few dishes... and "Big Bowl of rice for me, please!"
we had steamed watercress soup....
my kids wanted this creamy butter sotong... I took a piece to try..

claypot meat with salted egg... that increased my appetite...
paku pakis with garlic instead of sambal... i ate a lot of these greens...
our four dishes came to RM45 with rice and drinks... 

After our dinner, we went up to Tesco.... bought some fresh kiwi fruits, grapefruits and fresh cranberry juice.... suddenly I have craving for eating and drinking all these.... and along the aisle, this Chipster caught our attention...
Anyone tried this Chipster yet? 
Gosh... I think I am getting hungry again!
