the grocery dilemma

Last weekend’s grocery shopping was so stressful. I really didn’t know what to buy, or rather, what is safe to buy that isn’t tainted with melamine, and which reports to believe. Dang!

So I wandered around like a Food Inspector checking the labels of fresh produce with a fine-toothed comb. Have to be kiasu (chicken, afraid to lose out) when it’s the blind leading the blind, what to do 😆 ?

After walking round and round, these are what I got – celery from California, russet potatoes from the US, carrots and baby carrots from Australia, sweet corn and a bag of fresh salad from Cameron Highlands.

I’ve asked my neighbor to stop buying veggies for me from the wet market until further notice. Probably the veggie seller will say their stuff is not from China, either knowingly or unknowingly.

Most times, they’ve also repackaged their stuff into smaller bags so there’s no way to even check the labels. Headache 🙄 !
