What I Do When I am Lazy To Cook

When I was first introduced to online first thought was... could I trust this website ? After all I will have to use my bank credit card so I was a bit sceptical about it. But after consulting WB, my hubby and partner in life, he told me it is perfectly alright to buy stuff online using the credit card as the bank will notify us whenever we purchase items from the internet.  With the green light from hubby, I bought some stuffs from ShopBack MY , an online shopping website that gives the best deal on some branded stuff from baby products to home products to food and beverages.  A e-commerce platform for best deals. And you know what...the most important thing not to be left out is this. They have this cashback campaign going on. Cashback is really just " getting back back" - that is when you spend online through ShopBack, you will receive a portion of your purchase back as cash!.  Isn't this a good deal. It will help save our wallet and help us save more when purchasing online. I am happy with ShopBack. It makes shopping so much easier.

You can check out all Ensogo offers and promotions  Ensogo is one of the top e-commerce platforms in Malaysia, which offers crazy discounts on selected items and services. They have daily offers, sweet bargains and more. Now I can purchase food and beverages coupons like Foodpanda, Rakuten, and many more.  Times when I am lazy to cook, I will check log in to ShopBack and get the best discounts and deals on food and beverages.  Hahaha you know I don't always cook at home. Sometimes I do close my kitchen and eat out or get food delivered to the doorstep from Foodpanda. I guess most of us would love to be delivered to our home...mmmmm yes!  I do look forward to being served at times :)   Do check it out at ShopBack for best deals whether it is home products to food and beverages. Early birds catches the worm !

So be the early bird and dont miss out the cash back deals !

Pickled Pumpkin Slices With Lemon Juice And Dried Sour Plum

When I read this recipe...I was like  " wow,,,this is healthy and I must make this "  Pickle with lemon juice...mind this this perfect for me. So I asked WB to take me to Jusco and I got myself a small chunk of organic pumpkin to make this yummilicious pickle.  And to add flavor to this pickle...added some asam boi and chilli to it.  This is truly addictive....refreshing, crunchy and  slight spicy hot after taste.  A wonderful and healthy pickle that will have you craving for more.  Eating pumpkin raw is my first time.  This is better than the pickle green papaya ...of course,  this is my personal preference :)Try this will agree with me.  The pumpkin should not be over ripe.
