My parents never asked me to buy groceries or run errands for them. This is because……

 

THEY DIDN’T TRUST ME TO *sob sob*

 

To do them justice, I don’t trust myself either. But ever since I came here, there are lots of things I have to convince myself to do.

One of them is going to the market. When 

I never even touched raw fish or chicken or meat in my life.

I always avoid the wet section in supermarkets.

 

Dugaan.

 

Nisa pergi pasar

The ideal place to buy wet groceries here would be Yeshwantpur because the stuff there are madly cheap. Even I who never knew the price of anything think they’re cheap, so they must be right?

 

The rules of going there are:

1. Don’t bother to take a bath before going – checked

2. Wear a tracksuit and t-shirt – checked

3. Don’t wear nice shoes – unchecked. I wore my white Nike shoes.

 

Comments received upon bumping into other Malaysian students:

“Amboi, cantiknye kasutttt.”

“Nisa, ni bukan Garuda Mall ok.”

“Kenape tak pakai slipper je?? Nanti kotor!”

People, my love for my feet is a million times more than my love for my shoes. Enof said.

 

Armed with my digicam, I looked more like a tourist rather than the supposed mak cik pergi pasar.

The veggies and what-not were so fresh and pretty and cheap that even a veggie hater like me felt like buying everything. You know, “For Display Only” purposes.

At the end of the errand, shoes were still sparklingly white ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Had I been living alone, I would rather order delivery everyday than going there. But hey, it was a brand new experience ๐Ÿ™‚

 

P.S: Am considering of being a vegetarian already. But then, I’d probably die of starvation. So yeah, that’s not gonna work.
