Many readers think that I don't take enough fruits and vegetables and I have been making an effort to increase my intake.
I enjoy a particular brand of apples a lot, Envy. Crisp and sweet, it is probably more expensive than some apples but, hey, I am learning to be nicer to myself.
Envy apples sell out quickly and many times I find them sold out at the NTUC Fairprice in the HDB estate near my place. So, when I saw them on sale at a branch in a shopping mall this morning, I bought some.
This evening, after dinner in a warm and crowded kopitiam near my place, I popped into the NTUC Fairprice I usually patronise just to enjoy the air conditioning. Clever, right?
Then, I saw the apples.
Ah, new stock has arrived, I thought to myself. Out of habit, I looked at the price and, then, I looked again.
Sure or not?
I was pretty sure I paid a higher price just this morning.
Anyway, I bought a pack, came home and checked. You know lah, we should compare apples with apples, right?
AK so witty? I also say.
See the difference?
OK, magnified for the optically challenged:
Alamak. How come like that?
Now, I know.
Moral of the story:
"Don't buy fruits from NTUC Fairprice found in more atas locations."
A 10% difference is a big deal.
Well, to me it is, anyway.
I know. It is hard for me to change my ways.
Comparing apples with apples, I learned something this evening.
What a visit to NTUC Fairprice could teach us?
