Chef LuLu (Part 3 + Side of Drama)

June 19


Inspired by the success of my first gathering during the pandemic, I decided to invite a newer friend called Mera over for a BBQ Lunch and Swim at the Pool (I even lit my Coconut Water Candle for the occasion)!

Chef LuLu (Part 2)

May 25

Once again, past midnight (which was usually when I got the urge to “make things” in the Kitchen) I made some more Home-Made Froyo (recipe to come!) this time using Strawberry Jello (which turned everything a cute pink)!

May 26

Mini Pancake Cereal was trending (ugh, TikTok) so I decided to hop on that trend!

Collective Snackage Haulage (Sultan Center Souq Sharq, Sultan Center Salmiya, City Center Salmiya)

Back in December, my cousin’s wife served me a can of tasty Lychee Drink when I was over at my uncle’s home. It was sooo good that I’ve been searching for the exact same stuff ever since.

All I can remember was there was an illustration of Lychee and a Melon and possibly a Pear on the front, and the can itself was pale pink with white polka-dots and was either made in Malaysia or Thailand based on the writing (I dunno’).

During early December, I hit up both the Souq Sharq branch and Salmiya branch of Sultan Center and the Salmiya branch of City Center (ergo Collective Snackage Haulage) and bought a ton of other groceries as well, but couldn’t fit everything into one photo, so I didn’t even bother attempting it.

The drinks in the 1st photo were all from City Center Hypermarket (Salmiya). As you can see, it was very lychee-oriented lol

Sultan Center Pretty Big Haul (July)

When I took the kids to see Toy Story 4 at Souq Sharq (fully gory deets here), we hit up Fantasy World and Bath&Body Works (dis) and MAC (dis) before the movie, and Sultan Center after the movie. As you can see, we mostly got a bunch of snackage from Sultan Center.

I thought for sure that I’d gotten everything in the photo, but apparently not. I had to put everything away, because I prefer to wait until there’s nobody else in the kitchen before I take the photos (it feels weird having people watch lol) and the first time around, I forgot some stuff in the freezer. So I had to get everything out again and take pics all over again… only to find out that I’d forgotten the Pop-Tarts and Cheerios this time. Rather than lay everything out for the millionth time, I just took a photo of them separately and included them below.

Sultan Center Haul #12

As I mentioned in my latest “Spotted at Sultan Center” post (here) I picked up a handful of snackage as well as some other random items. I’ll be referencing that post quite a bit in this post (but I won’t keep linking to it), so if you’re interested, feel free to check it out before you continue.

Spotted at Sultan Center (Halloween)

On Halloween, I found myself at Sultan Center (Souq Sharq) with a few friends, because we needed stuff… for stuff, y’know?

Sultan Center Haul #11

Nesquik Chocolate Flavoured Cereal
x2 Coco Mojo Pure Coconut Water

So I’ve been on the hunt for Coco Mojo Pure Coconut Water ever since I randomly chose a can of the stuff at Sultan Center (Salmiya) and promptly fell in love (here)! Unfortunately, I could never find the stuff at the Souq Sharq branch of Sultan Center, which frankly, is more accessible to me (since I don’t enjoy the traffic jams on my to Salmiya). I figured the only way I could ever find the stuff was to go back to where I originally bought it, the Salmiya branch. Sadly, I didn’t find the steel can version. I did however, find a much larger version (1 Liter/33.8 fl oz). I spotted these 2 nestled in the refrigerated dairy section (amidst flavored yogurt and such), so I cradled them in my arms and made my way to the cash register.

Sultan Center Haul #7

I popped by Sultan Center (Salmiya) to replenish my stock of Tortilla Chips and Salsa (both of which were repurchases). I also grabbed x2 Nesquik Chocolate Flavoured Cereal because I was still craving it since my last haul (here) where I mistakenly grabbed the wrong thing. Lastly, I picked up a few drinks, because I was getting sick of drinking Karak Tea (that came in those purple boxes).

Sultan Center Haul #6

Like I said in my previous Spotted at Sultan Center post (here), I was hangry, hence the snackage. You know what? Looking at the haulage, it just occurred to me that I kinda’ do shop a lot at Sultan Center, so at this point, I might as well sign up for a Sultan Center Card (to benefit from whatever benefits that come with the Card). Knowing myself, the moment I sign up for the Sultan Center Card, I’d probably move on to Lulu Hypermarket or Carrefour or something, for good lawl Anywho, I picked up some Chips and Dip, some Fruits, a thing of of Caramel Popcorn, a tiny jar of Caviar and some Personal Care stuff (to qualify for the Scratch & Win Promo which I’ll be going over in detail, below).
