My girl was not able to come home for lunch as she had to attend a staff meeting at her school that afternoon. She said some of her colleagues would not be going home for lunch either and would go some place to eat in the time available. However, she said she would not want to join them – after all this time, she is not quite ready to eat out just yet.
Her mum said I could just bring her whatever she would be cooking that day but I told her I would go and buy her something nice and send to her at her school, something different for a change from her mum’s cooking day in day out for so long now and yes, she was keen on the idea.
I went to the Korean Store of this supermarket in town but of course, I had no intention of buying anything Korean. As a matter of fact, I went there a few times before and I never walked around to have a look. I wanted to go there with the sole intention of buying the very lovely sandwiches from here that they sell there daily. I think I did manage to buy it once and it was very nice – the rest of the time that I went to buy, they were all sold out.
It was already 11 something and there were not that many left. Out of the few that I had to choose from, I picked the mango chicken sandwich (RM6.50)…
I decided I would also buy a salad for my girl to enjoy. We have bought that before too, more than once, and we did like what we had everytime. I browsed through the limited choices available in the small display chiller beside the cashier’s counter and picked the smoked duck mango salad (RM8.50)…
I could see that besides the smoked duck and the mango, there were also some alfafa, purple sweet potatoes and cabbage, tomatoes, lettuce, egg and cucumber and they gave the Japanese kewpie salad dressing to go with it.
Of course my girl enjoyed my purchases so much – I certainly would go back again to see what other combinations they have for the sandwiches and salads that may tickle her fancy. As always, when she is happy, the old man is happy too!!!
