Yeah. Shopping. I tend to not be a fan.
Although, after you’ve eaten nothing but PB&J sandwiches for the last 3 days, you get really excited when you find a grocery store.
Also, I feel really intellectual with my reading glasses on, working on my laptop. Yep.
OK, that was random and free. Carry on with shopping Steph.
OK, back on track. Shopping. Groceries. (In case you haven’t noticed yet–I type like I talk. And I talk like I think. So welcome to my brain. It is a scary place. There is no exit. That I have found yet anyway).
So yeah. Today, I needed to get a biscuit. WHICH I TOTALLY FORGOT TO EXPLAIN IN THE LAST POST! I just googled “What is the battery life of a biscuit”, and it isn’t as weird as it sounds.
Everyone has one. I don’t know why we don’t have them in Canada yet, because they are absolutely phenomenal. Like seriously.
This is a biscuit.
I was too lazy to take a picture of mine and upload it and all that (mine is purple). It’s a wireless, portable, mini router. Works up to 30 meters, has a battery life of 6 hours, and will support up to 8 devices at a time. Isn’t that the coolest thing ever? I’m officially in love.
Anyway, i needed one. So everyone told me to get one at Mada, and the easiest Mada to get to was at this place called the Avenues. So i got a cab and went to the avenues.
THIS MALL! OH MY WORD. I may never leave Kuwait. Have you been to a mall with valet parking? I hadn’t either until today. (http://www.the-avenues.com/index.html)
This mall has an 11 screen cinema, 5 spas, 3 stories, a ballroom (YES–A ballroom. I’m completely serious). and More stores than I could see in a week. I just walked on one floor about half the length and I counted 4 Starbucks. It took me 20 minutes to walk half the length of 1 floor. And there were multiple arms going off in many different directions. I’d get lost. But I’m directionally challenged. i think a lot of people would get lost. It has stores that I recognized from back home (H&M, Claires, Bath and Body Works, etc.). There was food I recognized (Starbucks, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Texas RoadHouse, etc.) So many stores. i didn’t even bother going into any, because i actually wanted to get home and get my internet set up. Then I found a grocery store.
I think I actually did a happy dance in the mall. I’m weird. But I was so happy to be able to get food. I went a little nuts. It was great. And I think the prices are pretty cheap to. I don’t know… (all prices are Canadian)
A 2 litre of mountain dew: $0.87
8-pack of youghurt: $2.50
Loaf of bread: $0.57
Normal sized jar of strawberry jam: $1.35
Chocolate bar (they have every kind you can get in the states pretty much): $0.53
Box of Frosted Flakes: $4.82
2 large Green peppers: $1.75
I don’t know. I didn’t go grocery shopping much at home to know how the prices compare. But that seems pretty reasonable to me. And I needed food so I really didn’t care anyway 🙂
Anyway, that was my happy place for the day. Sometime I’ll go back once I have lesson plans done. And a friend to go with. A wonderful mall like that should not be explored alone.
POTATO CHIPS! Because I am totally a salty over sweet type of girl.
Not sure what this is, but it was for sale in the grocery store.
Found Mountain Dew and Orange Soda. So this Caffeine addict is happy 🙂
