Ginger is the New Gold!

I could not believe that there is actually a shortage of old ginger this season! I went to many Asian Grocers and many do not have stock. They only have young ginger which cost $15 a kilo! Then lest week I went to Springvale and managed to find some old ginger and they are priced at a staggering $35 a kilo!!! What a rip off!!! I am sooooo sooooo glad I had my confinement during the same time last year! Old ginger was selling at $8.99 a kilo then... phew~

I have to pay almost $4 for these bits...

Rosemary flowers

I've not planted any herbs before until we moved to Melbourne. My first herb plant was a potted basil but it hardly thrive until I transferred it onto the ground. It was quite demoralising as I can't even keep a potted herb plant alive even it required so little care. :P

Then I saw some rosemary plants when we visited Bunnings and decided to get a pot to try my luck. Since it is meant for outdoor, it managed to survive with very little care and was surprised to see these pretty flowers blooming...

Don't they looked pretty??? They are actually very tiny and has the shape of orchids which surprises me actually. I just loved the soft lilac color...

Buying a house is not an easy task!

We have inspected closed to 150 properties at least but has yet to decide which property we will buy. It is an extremely daunting task to buy a resale home as the location and floor plan don;t always go in sync. Sometimes we like the location but the floor plan of the house sucks and vice versa.

Though we have some sort shortlisted a few of the properties we are still unable to decide. Personally, I wish I could do background checks on why the owners wanted to sell their properties like those background checks at easybackgrounds.com but I know it can't be done.

I just hope when we do finally decide, the house we have chosen is the best one... *sigh*

How much sugar you take???

I got this image from one of the posts shared by a friend in Facebook...

It made me ponder on how much sugar I ingest a day and started feeling rather guilty when looking at this photo. Especially when I bring the kids to have Hungry Jack or Maccas where meals comes with a regular drink which can be refilled! The kids love all those juices and they are damn cheap here which always tempt me to get... just bought 3 x 2.4 Litres of Berri Juices! :P

Ok... will ration them out slowly so we don't over consume those deadly sugar!
