Grocery Shopping

Just a random posting in between my many sad and gory posts lining up. I cannot be pleasing all readers like this Singaporean CK who only loves to hear spooky & paranormal stuffs. Not all readers are brave and crazy like CK who used to go all out to find ghosts around Singapore! Muahahaha I am sharing my top favourite place for grocery shopping as the energy inside is always very good.



This upscale De Market is inside Faber Towers at Taman Desa.
Nothing is cheap here but everything is the best & freshest!





Happiness is when I go shopping with this happy girl.




As the prices are tagged like the skies, yet there are so many
wealthy aunties & Japanese shopping here from as far as 
Seputeh, Gasing Hills, Bangsar and even Damansara Heights.
 


Their fruits and vegetables here are very fresh
compared to the Hero M in my own neighbourhood.




They are slightly smaller than Ben's but they have all the stuffs
that the expatriates need from their home country.




My Goodness! Look at the prices and yet they are very popular!
That's why it is "HOT BUYS" as displayed.
They are fully imported from Australia and I had to drink this
at their cafe to taste the difference. It tastes good & malty!




Their fruit trays are often snapped up very fast.
The staff are all very polite and hard working
to replenish. I have been shopping at their place
for almost 15 years since their earlier days
when they had another name.

  
She enjoyed going to supermarkets to pull the baskets.
Here she watched the Japanese TV Demo on cooking.




It is 20 days more to Christmas!

  2. When it comes to grocery shopping, the balance between freshness plus safety and price is important. Strolling around De Market would be fun and looks worth visiting from time to time for imported things and foods, but regarding fruits and vegetables, I definitely go for locally grown ones in season. Basically I prefer smaller independent shops on the corner or in the shopping mall. The happy photo of you with the happy girl is so nice, well focused on faces while camera turning quick a little. Or, did the photographer use some special app? In the end, you reminded me that so many things to do, so little time in this year. One of the nicest things this year in the blogosphere was to make friends with you. Wish you a joyful Christmas and a happy New Year.

    1. Thank you Yoko-San for your kind words. Your blog is wonderful as you always shared the best and original photos of beautiful Japan with the rightful captions. You could write so well and you are artistic too.
      I used the photoshop to make effects on the photos. I should experiment more. Have a nice break and see you in February.

    1. Hoiii mana tu uncle? I frequented that place to inhale the good energy or just window shopped only. I would buy eggs and milk stuffs only besides admiring at the other shopper's loots. I have been going to Taman Desa twice a week to collect food leftovers for a church group to feed the homeless people on weekends.

      Those Milo tins have been around for years and I thought they would be a flop for its price. Our local Milo is just good enough and cheaper. Just add 4 tablespoons to make Milo Kao Kao!

  6. I have been to this supermarket everytime I ate at Bread Fruits Taman Desa. Now that you have highlighted it, I will open my eyes bigger to see what goodies that they sell.

    1. I hope you will spend time there to browse their items as many food items are new to me. Like what Sean said, they packed too much things!! I like their service very much as the staff would offer to carry anyone's big grocery to their cars. When it rains, all of them would have umbrellas ready to usher the shoppers to their cars too. Once the guy followed me to my car and I parked half km away at the school!!! LOLOL
      Have you seen such thoughtful services anywhere else in KL? I am curious.

    2. No, I have not encountered such thoughtful services in kl.

  7. Since you have been shopping there for many years, the management might look for you to be the supermarket spokesperson, kakaka...

  8. Here in Taiping, we only have few choices for grocery shopping, like Tesco, Giant, Aeon and Econsave, the rest are small grocery stores (kedai runcit).

    You guys are so spoil for choice la!

    1. These hypermarkets definitely have more choices than De Market. Just the products are different and mostly imported ones. Move to KL and enjoy this shopping. We all welcome you!

  9. Not wealthy aunty from Cheras also like to go there.LOL..If the items are fresh then its worth paying a bit more.

  10. For me it’s very simple. Just go to cold storage and within 20 mins , all my shopping done ! I’m unlike those uncle and aunties who see long long and think long long ! Muahahahahah!

  11. I love grocery shopping even if it is just walking the aisles and admiring the products. I would be a happy auntie to shop at De Market even if it is just look-see-look-see. Ah, what a cute and cheerful little girl you have there!

  14. I have never heard of this place but now I'm excited! Only thing is I find it very hard to let go of Taman Tun. I shop at Hero, the Pasar Malam and any mall nearby ;P It's my favourite hangout. If I could, I would buy a house here too but the property prices are wayyYYy out of my budget ..lol!!

  15. Wow, i missed those big tins of Milo. I can't find them in Tesco or Aeon.

  16. That little girl is such a bundle of happiness. Her smile is contagious, so cute.

    Milo from australia is indeed the best!
