i was in the tesco last night, for food bargains, and got 3packs of sausages(8) for 30 p each. usually £2. that was a good buy. i freeze 2 packs and i will have sausages for lunch today , with eggs and fresh tomatoes, they can be like breakfast. they are ordinary sausages, with only 47% pork, but i do like them, even better than the designer sausages with higher meat content and herbs. there is something about them that is unique in taste and it really spells british sausages to me… they are unique to britain, i have never seen these sausages sold in europe… maybe to the europeans they are gross… haha. but i do like them.

but what surprised me was their veg shelves. celery and iceberg lettuce for 29p each. i bought 2 packs of celery, but pass on the iceberg lettuce. i nearly missed this bargain, as i dont usually browse past the veg shelves looking for bargains.   i wonder why they are selling veg cheap. summer is over, so i would have thought the glut of summer veg must be over too. 

and today in the paper, i see an advert from aldi selling brocolli, celery, beetroot etc for 35p each. but no advert from tesco publising their cheap veg.

aldi only has one branch in london, on the old kent road, quite a distance from me. that is why i have not gone to them for quite a long time now, especially when lidl, or even tesco is selling its veg cheap too. competition is a fine thing, isn’t it?

hugh hefner had died, aged 91. so a symbol of the olden days have gone. those of my generation would have known of his playboy magazine.

and did u know that dogs cannot eat chocolates? or rather they can but they get really sick if they do. as this greedy dog who tore open a sample package of chocolates posted through the letter box found out to his cost. and the owners are blaming sainsburys for sending them the free sample chocolates. dogs are so greedy really, you would have thought nature would safeguard the dog by making it not eat it, but i guess the domestic dogs are so inbred and tamed, their wild instincts have completely been bred out…

the daily mail website also was breaking news about a world wide computer crash at the checkout system in airports … even changi in singapore is affected. it seems it is a software checkin that crashed.
