I went to the supermarket earlier this evening to do my “pseudo health-conscious” grocery. When I say healthy it means: no canned goods, no rice and no junk food. The bill was AED175 and I think the things I bought would only last for a week whereas if I buy all the non-healthy food, I can probably keep the AED175 grocery to last for 2 weeks. But then of course the latter would probably shorten my life as well or worst yet, the savings might just go to the hospital bills in the future. The question is, why are good things always more expensive?
Like for example, I bought an Italian garden salad which costs AED17.50 with a life span of 4 days. I’m trying to cut back on rice so all these leaves serve as my rice since 3 weeks now. But if I buy 3kg of rice, it’ll be the same price with a life span of 2 weeks maybe (depending on how hungry I am). Also, I bought granola bars for my mid-day snack to avoid eating chips (which I’m addicted to). It cost me AED6.00 for 1 bar whereas if I buy Boy Bawang it’ll just cost me AED2.50 per pack.
I don’t really know if I want to go on with this for all my life because seriously, it kinda suck.
As for the Photo-A-Day challenge, the subject for today is: SOMETHING NEW.
The above is something new to me, a new destination to explore. Lichnos Beach Hotel & Suites liked one of my posts and because I do visit the sites of people who were kind enough to like or comment on my posts, I discovered that paradise on their website. As of this moment, an SMS message was already sent to the boyfriend to tell him about our next destination. 🙂
