What I did on 26/07/08

Woke up early today to go to vege market in Porirua. The market starts at 7am finishes at 10am every Saturday, and you just have to be an early bird to get a better catch. It is one of those open-air, wet and dirty market place where you can get veges/meat/fish/fruits etc at a cheaper price. Nowadays, everything so expensive including groceries, so really have to resource to option other than our usual supermarket.

We then had breakfast at this newly open cafe nearby, Peppermill. First time there. Their food quite good, not too oily and tastes healthy. Their service not bad too.

Hot Choco

Peppermill Deli breakfast

Egg benedict with salmon

After a hearty breakfast, we just shopped around, look see look see. So many sales going on at the moment, the temptations are strong, and I eventually gave in (blame my evil twin lah). I ended up bring home 2 pairs of shoes that cost total of $17.95 and 4 belts at an unbelievable total of $10!!!!!!!!!!! All were slashed 50% and yet further offer of buy 1 get 1 free! If I had let all these passed by I should just ban myself from shopping for 5 years!!! For this, I should really thank my evil twin aye?

Also managed to grab these at an asian grocery store. Aahh....the homey flavours

Fanta Green (my favourite!)

Ice-cream soda

Thanks for your compliment Keeyit. Actually my profession has nothing to do with fashion at all. I'm in power engineering field. Very tomboy-ish huh? Hehehehe

Ms. _______ 2 be !:
Sweetie, skipping breakfast is a no no. Really not good to your body. Where you moving to?

Eh, sounds like you don't quite fancy Fanta? I like the smell of Fanta green, so nice....

Of course I don't always doll myself up like that lah. All depend on my mood and the weather. Better dress up now else when I got kids in future, no chance already. All my time and body will be sold to the little one. Sigh!

Wahahahaha, nah you won't lah. You don't that those sluty and trashy look, so ppl would only think that you're some sort of celebrity lah. Hehehehe

Hello cc! Welcome welcome. Yeah, weather really sucks to the max here! The winter blues...sigh
