Well, due to the shrinking value of our Ringgit, I had to cook at home to have a hearty meal. Just now, I took a piece of RM10 to the coffee shop to buy lunch for my precious. With that RM10, we got a really really small packet of char koay teow. I would need to eat 3-4 packets to fill up my stomach. And then, I got her a packet of watery green curry chicken with a big packet of white rice. In my house, we always eat little rice but we feasted on the dishes. But outside, the hawkers encourage you to have a mountainous heap of rice with small amount of meat. The green curry has been watered down. There's no more quality in food anymore even when you pay through your nose. Our RM10 used to be able to feed 3 people with loud burps. Gone were the days.
The cafes outside are selling RM12 for a slim piece of cake. I think I've been living in a cave. I saw the whole round cake of 9-inch selling at RM68. My eyes almost popped out. It's just a very simple cake and I've been baking a few cakes for the girls' birthday as it's really cheap to bake those cakes yourself. Looks like I have to learn on my own in baking all sorts of cakes to keep our sweet-tooth in check. It's high time before the currency worldwide crashes. This world is beyond redemption. Do I have to push a whole trolley of printed useless bill to get my groceries done next time?

I've my menu planned out for leftover of the month of December. Just hope I don't get lazy and shove the menu into the dustbin.
