Stingy Or Lazy?

TALKING OF SAVING MONEY, where it comes to meals for 4 persons (myself + 3 big teens), it is more economical to eat at home... normally one meal outside will cost RM50.00 averagely. If cook at home, then perhaps around 10-20RM.

But if one or two persons, then different story. One plate of chap farn (rice with 3 side dishes) cost around eating outside is cheaper for 1-3 persons.

(why m i suddenly so calculative? feeling the pinch of inflation, i guess.... )

Ok, let me illustrate an example of a meal for 4 persons...

4 big bowls of soup
ingredients: green vege, ikan bilis (anchoives) & fish

one bowl each...not more than that.. (lol...)

one dish of pototoes
& minced meat....

one dish of vegetables with clams...

followed by one plate of rice

That is all.... enough or not??? OF COURSE NOT! my Andy said "where got enough, mum... all vegetables... 2 dishes and one soup only ah?"

My reply was... "wanna eat or not? if not, less men more share...." quietly, quietly... all started to eat..and finished all...

Am i stingy? no la.. actually I am LAZY.... (lazy mama!!)

  12. wah! reali jimat lolz u ! even can calculate for 4 bowls of soup !izit reali enuf? hw about if ur family wan tambah soup?

  14. Well, kids must learn NOT to complain about the food served on the table - little or not, it's still food. Just thank God that there's food for everyone no matter in what quantity.

    I've to learn that too.

  15. You are not stingy...but creative!! Not only the meal is cheaper compared to eating outside...but it is HEALTHY. Not lazy maaah...good mummy and wife :)
