Good Friday Buys

My sisters and I had been planning to make another trip to Johor Bahru (JB) on Good Friday. However, the day before, my younger sister couldn't make it as her son was not feeling well. Then my youngest sister decided not to go. My hubby and I decided to proceed.  We also monitored the traffic at the checkpoint to ensure that there wasn't any jam before we left.

However, we were really caught by surprise after we left the checkpoint at Tuas. There was truly a long jam before the JB checkpoint. We were caught in the jam for about one and half hour! As mentioned in the papers earlier in the week, with the long weekend, many Singaporeans are travelling to Malaysia for a short holiday, and coupled with the F1 Grand Prix during the weekend, so it was unusually heavy traffic at the checkpoint!

By the time we reached Jusco Bukit Indah, it was already half past 12. It was time for lunch. We settled for Sushi King. After lunch, we stayed in the shopping centre, wandering around. The best part of the centre was the Jusco Supermarket! The fruits and vegetables were very fresh. I was stuck at the fresh vegetable section deciding which vegetables to buy! Even the tomatoes were so pretty and fresh! We bought quite a fair bit of food from the supermarket, and I believe we spent most of the time in the supermarket!

My hubby and I have always love shopping at the supermarket.  It started when we were studying in Melbourne some 15 years back. We like to visit the local supermarkets, look at the fresh produce, compare the prices and admire how fresh and beautiful they were! It hasn't changed since then. Up till today, we still like supermarkets, even though our local ones cannot be compared to those in Melbourne, it's better than not having it!

Anyway, we were truly happy with what we had purchased from JB with this shopping trip. We had dinner in their KFC before heading home. It was a shopping trip worth the jam!

Watch my next post on how I used the tomatoes bought from the supermarket.

Kumato, I've seen them a bit in Adelaide but they call it somethgn else and it's expensive. Is it worth the buy? Does it taste better than regular tomatoes?

And Big Apple, I miss it so much. Next time tell them you want durian doughnut. It's yummy. The cold durian cream versus the warm dougnuts. So wonderful!!!!

Hi Quinn,
My family said the Kumato isn't anything special. It's slightly sweeter than our normal tomatoes, but not as good as Romas. You should try if it's not too ex.
Oh, the durian cream is worth trying? I saw it, but didn't think I want to try. Since now you recommend it, I shall it the next time I'm there, thanks for your recommendation! :)
