I mentioned in an earlier post that +3 recently bought a juicer and I have to say, that is one of our favourite purchases to date.
We've stopped juicing lotus root because it clogs up the juicer and we have to wash it a couple of times just to finish juicing one lotus root. Much too troublesome.
Instead, we start our mornings with a fruit and vegetable juice. I try to vary it and so far we've juiced the usual- apples, carrots, celery, tomatoes, spinach, to the not so usual- brocolli, bittergourd, grapes, ginger.
It's fun trying to mix and match and create yummy juices, and it's good for our health too.
While buying the juicer, I chanced upon a water filter jug that was selling for only $39. It was the display piece and was originally sold for $59. I'd been looking for a water filter jug but was always quite reluctant to buy one as they tend to be quite pricey.
Anyway, I bought that water filter jug and use it in the office. No more buying bottled water, yay! Use less plastice and drink more water. Wheee!
A couple of weeks later, the electric kettle at +3's place died and he had to get a new one. Found one that was silver and black and matched the juicer (heehee). Small purchase but I like that we are slowly accumulating things that will go to our new home.
Speaking of which...
We are buying a place! More details to come once we have finalised the purchase but wheeeee! We are going to be home-owners! Our parents have given their blessings and now all we need to do is confirm the unit that we want and make the first payment and hope our application is successful.
