Supermarket Contests Tip #4

Get your own trolley. You can save your $1 renting the supermarket trolley/basket and just wheel out the same trolley you came with after checkout. I especially like this idea as my groceries can get quit heavy, so rolling it along is much easier than carrying it. Even if its a short distance to the car park.

Dior A/W 2014/2015

More proper business clothes from Dior this season with accents like gemstone embellishments and lace-ups. 

The casual dresses are colourful with an overlay effect.

The formal dresses are flouncy with high-low cuttings.

In Dior Menswear, it's all business too with nicely tailored suits in a rose print, polka dots, single stripe...

Some fur pieces coz it's winter, fur collars, fur lining (like), full on fur.

Then there is Dior Cruise 2015 collection that is usually more colourful and flowy.

Dior Cruise collection seems inspired by scarves. Not in the usual manner of course, the pieces look abstract and haphazardly thrown together so you don't get that homespun quilting vibe but rather something more modern and high fashion.

TSP WIN: 28 piece Dinner Set

Tong Seng Produce / Giant Lucky Draw win! 28 piece, plain white, fine bone china, plate set. TSP carries recognizable rice brands like Songhe and AAA, so it wasn't difficult entering this contest. I am going to keep this one for myself as my IKEA white plates have dwindled in numbers over the years.

This set is a 7 piece setting for 4 people. Kinda strange but the plates have similar shapes, so it can also be a 2 piece setting for 8 people with serving plates.

LeNu is a Taiwanese Beef Noodle Bar. There is a Beef Noodle contest in Taiwan every year, so there are variations and classics, at the end of the day, its all just beef noodles.

The dipping sauce here is classic sourish, but more robust.

The sides are good, I like pickled everything and love century egg tofu.

Supermarket Contests Tip #3

Split up shopping trips into weekly events instead of 1 big monthly spree. Contests come out at different times, as determined by the respective food companies. This way you can catch all the contests and even take advantage of weekly in-store promotions.

Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2014/15

Hearkening back to days of old, the tale of Little Red Riding Hood comes alive this season @ D&G. 

I am a fan of those woodland creatures appliques, also available in botanical. Heavy, heavy hoods and old-style quilted tapestry fabric. The fabric de riguer is a Keys pattern. Chainmail is replaced with gemstones and lace-ups in translucent chiffon makes the look sexier than ever before.

Over in menswear, D&G recreates a matching theme. However, the style is modern western without pushing boundaries. Featurinsilhouette prints.
