RMCO Day 34 ~ Monday, 13 July 2020

Today is mall shopping day with Sherilyn and the mil. When school reopens, Sherilyn won’t have the time to go shopping unless there’s a public holiday or it’s the school holidays. I never like to go shopping on a public holiday because of the crowd. It’s Sherilyn’s first outing to the mall during the MCO; her first in over 5 months.  The other two girls stayed home to attend their schools’ online classes.

Lunch was at An Viet @ Gardens Mall as I wanted to utilize a RM10 voucher earned when I last had lunch at this restaurant with hubs a month ago.

The situation at the mall is back to normal. There were crowds at most eateries and at Uniqlo, business was as usual brisk with many shoppers.  Many items were on sale and I got myself two bra tops at great deals. Because of the MCO, Uniqlo extended the validity of my birthday voucher worth RM15 and I got more savings from the voucher. The two bra tops are my belated birthday present for myself ☺️

I’ve now gotten the hang of mopping the floor with my left  hand (I’m a right-hander).  Well, when the right hand is in pain because of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, I can’t just whine and do nothing. Work still has to be done. Slowly but surely, I’ve learned to do things with my left hand so that the right hand gets a breather.  With continued practice, I’ll soon be joining the 1 percent ambidextrous people in the world  😁

Stay Home And Have Delicious Fresh Crabs Delivered To Your Doorstep!

If you are a seafood lover and enjoy feasting on crabs, did you know that you can reap amazing health benefits from eating crab meat?  All shellfish, including crabs, have generous amounts of selenium. Selenium is an anti-oxidant that negates the carcinogenic effects of cadmium, mercury and arsenic, which can cause tumors in humans. It has been proven that higher levels of selenium in the blood lead to lower rates of cancer.  Besides getting to savour succulent crab meat, crab lovers will be pleased to know that crab meat has the ability to boost the immune system, increases cognition, protects your heart, promotes bone health and lowers inflammation.

If you are a fan of crabs and stay in Singapore, you can savour the freshest Sri Lankan crabs without having to leave your home by ordering it from 8 Crabs, an established wholesaler and retailer of fresh crabs and other premium seafood who also dish up delicious homecooked style crabs. As they have their own supplier and processing factory of wild-catch grade AAA crabs from Sri Lanka, their crabs are exceptionally big, fresh and meaty.  You pay for meat and not empty shells.

Some Fun Facts About Crabs
Crabs naturally travel about 500m every night and prefer to live alone. However, crab farmers breed many crabs in a confined space in order to be profitable. This causes the crabs to get stressed very easily in captivity as many farms cannot replicate their natural habitat.  When stressed, crabs produce ammonia, which is a sign of decomposition of seafood. Have you ever experienced a foul nauseating ammonia taste from the crabs that you ate? I had gone through such bad experience plenty of times and this has resulted in me starting to dislike eating crabs.

Why Order Your Crab Dish From 8 Crabs?
Most restaurants purchase farmed crabs because they are cheaper. As a result, they use highly fragrant gravies to cover up the ammonia smell.   The crabs from 8 Crabs are wild-caught from the sea, sourced from Sri Lanka.  They are the only company in Singapore using grade AAA premium Sri Lankan sourced wild crabs. This is graded by the most experienced crab graders in the trade.   This means that their crabs are meatier, tastier, bigger, and less watery.   To ensure freshness, these crabs are caught in Sri Lanka, flown to Singapore daily, cooked and delivered to you within 12 hours.  Their award-winning chefs prepare and cook these fresh crabs daily to guarantee the best flavour and taste.  They also have a one driver to an order policy across their 12 kitchens island-wide so that they may uphold their promise of One Hour Crab Delivery or a refund given.

Fuss-Free Feast on Durians Via Online Delivery

Durian, the king of fruits is a nutrient-dense fruit, containing much more nutrients than most other fruits.  Durian is naturally rich in potassium, dietary fibre, iron, vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin B complex. The king of fruits is thus excellent for improving muscle strength and blood pressure, bowel movements and skin health. It also supports the nervous and immune systems, and enhances the formation of red blood cells.​  Durian acts as a prebiotic, feeding beneficial lactic acid bacteria in the gut microbiome, supporting digestive functions and colon health. The fiber in durian adds bulk to the stool, thus promotes regularity.

Durian is also high in minerals such as iron, magnesium, potassium, copper, manganese, and small amounts of phosphorus, zinc, and calcium.   Contrary to what most people believe, durians contain NO cholesterol and have lower Glycemix Index (GI) than many other tropical fruits. The fats which are found in durians are monounsaturated fats and these may help to lower an individual’s LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglyceride levels.  So good news to durian lovers, including yours truly! 😉

Have you ever craved for durians but dread the thought of waiting under the hot sun at road side stalls or joining in the long queues at supermarkets?  Or it may be that you’re too busy with work that you can’t squeeze out some time to shop for durians to satiate your craving for the king of fruits.  You can now feast on premium grade fresh durians delivered to your doorstep at any time you wish when you order online at 8 Durian.
