Treats ...

Whenever I am leaving for home to JB from SG, I will always called home to check out what my kids and wifey wanted to buy from SG. Especially, the kids, they will asked from toys to snacks like chocolate, sweets or cookies. MY wifey will usually asked me to get instant noodles as some types cannot get in JB as well as it's cheaper over in SG. She also have a soft spot for the Subway sandwiches here as it is so much different from Malaysia, probably it is not halal in SG and she likes the bacon very much!

Sometimes I do get my kids toys but I cannot buy them toys weekly. Thus, I usually go for cheaper treats which they requested most of the time.

Jellybeans - My two kids favourite and my son asked for it. I got them two packs.

My wifey's favourite chocolate as well as my kids. I also love this one - it's dark chocolate and I heard cannot be get from Malaysia, not too sure but I don't see it in JB.
Oh...since I had a heavy lunch, I go for a salad dinner for the second time at Saladbox near the Bugis MRT station. I like to go there as it is quiet as well as the ladies who served us were tall and attractive too. :) I had a 'Rainbow' salad and its really a big plate and I was really full ! Now, I understand salad can also makes us filling!

My salad for dinner - with an egg
It's weekend and a long one! Have a good time :)

    1. SK - Well, no matter what, I still need to call to tell them what time I am leaving. Then, might as well ask them what they want. Usually it will be buns, besides the treats at times.

  3. aaahh, the salad looks good!! I like the color of salad and it's the color that make us have better appetite probably.. I agree salad can be quite filling but then I would also say for my case, the filling cannot last long..

  8. Tim Tam, Australian or Indonesian? The Indonesian ones are not good - the chocolate tastes odd and poor quality control - uneven coating and some parts not coated.

  9. Dark Choc for Tim Tam is just nice, other flavors are just too sweet for us (maybe not for Australians and Kiwis)

  11. Your salad looks so colorful and it must be delicious! Here in KL can get Tim Tams but I am not a fan so I don't buy.

  12. I saw Tim Tam dark chocolate in one of supermarkets here. Not sure it is from Australia or not as I did not check on it.

    I would go for bacon sandwiches too, if I can. ;)

    You have a great weekend with family, Chris.

  16. Thanks for sharing and waking me up. I always wondered why the Subway in US is different from Malaysia's. Must be the halal reasons.
