in utah, i was spoiled. we lived right next to a neighborhood grocery store. it was so convenient. if i needed something for dinner, i would walk on over at 4 pm and grab it. i would be back in 10 minutes, tops. if i was making dinner and needed something, steve would volunteer (just so he could ride his skateboard) and before i knew it, he would be back. easy.
if you ask me what i dislike the most about singapore, it would be grocery shopping. here's what it looks like.
all of the grocery stores i go to are in malls. the first obstacle is parking. find a green light and back yourself in. i am pretty proud of myself now. it usually takes only one or two times of reverse, drive, reverse to get it right. it was comical at first. now i'm a pro at backing my rear up. :)
go to this store for buttermilk and cilantro,
this one for cheese.
the best meat is at this store.
you get the idea.
one thing's for sure, there are lots of asian takes on traditionals.
seaweed? soft-shell crab? grilled shrimp? bangkok grilled chicken?
these handy little travelator-escalators are magnetic, so the cart sticks to it down to the parking garage.
