After enjoying food deliveries to the max (and discounts) prior to the Chinese New Year, I did mention that I got tired of restaurant food. True that it is so convenient and requiring so little effort (just some scrolling of the phone hah..hah...), after a while it does get tiresome.
Sometimes, waiting for the delivery can be quite annoying. I had an recent experience where the driver, though seen on tracking was very near my place, made me wait for 45 minutes plus.
Then I got a message that my food was delivered when there was not a soul at my gate. After waiting for a decent time, I contacted Grab and 15 minutes later, the man showed up, smiling and nervously wishing me happy new year. I was so annoyed that I cancelled his tip.
So this festive period, though I could order food and just chill out, I decided to cook. Simple cooking of course.
Then I put the mushroom rendang that I had stashed in the freezer to good use. It was just a matter of defrosting and reheating and cooking some brown rice. And then adding some pre-washed salad leaves.
Maybe, tomorrow I will Grabfood one meal hah..hah..hah... It's best to strike a balance of home cooked and delivery. What say you?
