Sansesan sent some Koh-Kae peanuts over and they are good companions while I do my work at home, or in the office. Apart from the usual tin cans packaging, they now come in erasable pouches which makes them easier to store and ensure freshness.

They can be found in 7-Eleven, Cheers, Fairprice, Giant, Prime & Sheng Siong supermarkets.

Thank you Sansesan!

Proud to say I REALLY LOVE GINGER. Be it eaten raw or in the form of a drink. Even before Gingen sent me these, I have tried everything because everyday after lunch in the office, I will make myself a cup of ginger drink, to get rid of all bloatedness.

Somewhere end of August, after a tasting session, Randy, Diana & myself accidentally chanced upon a mini flea at Orchard Central Atrium, its so small that I didn't really take note the name of the flea, only took 2 name cards from the booths that I was interested in. Wooden kitchenware, who don't love?
