the market

my friend from work, Lan, and i went to the central market today for shopping and lunch.  lots of bargains to be had.  i got four packets of my indonesian coffee and a new mop.  the old one died.  we had flat noodles, chicken and vegies for lunch which was oh so delicious.  jasmine tea to finish.  gorgeous day in adelaide again.  quite warm.  the market was crowded.  we got a free park not far away.  Lan's mil was there visiting and lunching with her sister so we brought her home.  she also bought some vegies and we managed to get both of our shopping trolleys into my very messy car boot.  i've been going through my cupboards and have stuff for the second hand shop in there.  i must unload it tomorrow.  another fab day with food and friends.  life is good.  :)  facebook page for the adelaide market.  quite a landmark in adelaide.  it's been there forever.  enjoy your weekend wherever you are :)

  3. I LOVE trying new coffee blends - my neighbour brought back some from Kenya - yummy! Is yours a strong coffee?

    I loved Jasmine tea as well - sounds like you had a great weekend!

    1. hi Cindy, kenyan coffee is very good. mine isn't really strong but strong enough. i often have trouble getting it. the supply is erratic. sometimes there's plenty and sometimes i can't get it for months. that's why i stock up. :) jasmine tea is great with chinese food. they just go together so well. :) hope you are well
