Today I went grocery shopping. I am happy to report that it was a lot more pleasant than day 4 since the management of Aeon has put in place proper procedures at the entrance.
There were barriers set up to manage the queue.
Red tape was pasted on the floor so that shoppers maintain the correct distance from each other. Everything went very smoothly and the line moved quickly.
Aeon also provides personal shopping assistance. Two of their staff came around to inform us that if we had prepared a list, they could help to pick up the groceries and once done, you will be called to pay for your purchase. I don't know if anyone opted for that but I think most of us would prefer to pick up ourselves.
Inside the supermarket it was not as crowded as I had expected since I was early. From time to time there is an announcement to request customers to quickly make their purchase and to proceed to the payment counters.
I prepared a list as I always do, grouping items that are found at the same aisle to facilitate my movement. Instead of darting here and there to pick up stuff, I can do it in an efficient manner. I also avoided items that needed to be weighed in order to save time.
Of course not all items were available but that's OK. At times like this, there is no need to be fussy.
This is my grocery haul. My usual brand of eggs were not available so I had to make do with a different one.
There is minimal cooking today. I just needed to fry the last packet of French beans that my partner picked up the other day and to reheat rice and leftover oink oink that I cooked on day 10.
My girl refused to come downstairs and this is her ignoring me. Naughty girl.
But she eventually came downstairs and settled herself in the dining room.
As usual, she fell asleep. Cats sleep a lot!
Upon closer inspection, I accidentally bought one package of kitten food for her. Haiz... Never mind lah. I am sure she can eat though it's like feeding baby food to an adult.
Ahem!! This I regret because all that glaze is so very sweet. I already knew that but I still itchy mouth want to eat. By the way this happened a few days ago. No more!
