Food!!!

Until today….i realized many of us spend a lot in foods! One of the way to save money is everyday eat in mamak, bring the water yourself, dun order any drinks, haha!

But…the question is how many days can you having the same types of foods? Sure we will wanna to try something which is nice, and cheap, right? Most of the nice foods come with expensive price, such as Sushi King, Secret Recipe, Pizza Hut, Shakey Pizza, Bread Story, Starbuck, Coffeebean…(coffee, nice taste), Kenny Roger….wow…a lot!

If we count it in math, let said in a month we spend 300 in foods, the division is like:

35 times in KFC or Mc Donald or
25 times in Shakey Pizza Express Lunch Set or
25 cups of Coffeebeans or
20 times in Pizza Huts or
16 times spend in Secret Recipe or
15 times in Sushi King

Therefore, if we only eat once per day, just imagine you can enjoy KFC or Mc Donald everydays, switch among it in one or two days, haha! Anyway, if want a cheap price for food, just go for 2 roti canai kosong with one tea tarik (around RM2.40), this one can last at least 125days………not bad! Isn’t that a bad idea to save money, right? Hehe! For myself, I think I set a limit for myself only spend around RM6 per days, so it would be below 200! Feel curious how much you all willing to spend for food in a month…

Jyrenze said...

BillyTong said...

Mont Kiara, Sri Hartamas area crazy one, heard my parent ate there last time b4, until now they keep complaining. :(

It is possible to eat with Rm6 with 2 meal.

normally my meal stay arround RM3-3.50, if u want good good taste then Rm6 lor >_< No need to order drinks lah, those drinks from tap water one. Bring ur own water is best and most healthty also. :)

btw, eat roti sometimes lah. RM1 only :P It saves a lot man.

YSLim said...

Currently i working near to petaling street....eat cheap cheap one for a meal with drink also need around 4.50.......

sometimes if go to the restaurant such as Greenhut will cost around 5.50...rice with sky juice...not cheap...

Eh, Billy also working at Mont Kiara/Sri Hartamas? I'm working there too. The trick is, don't think too much, eat what you want one some days, and on other days, just starve yourself. You get to enjoy both good food and cheap food in a week like that. AAAHAHAHAHA!

BillyTong said...

err...I not work in mont kiara lah. I even didn't stop by there b4. Just pass by. I just heard the food there is expensive from both my parents. IMO, the best food you can have is at ur home. Everyday eat outside RM4~6, crazy is it!!? for me a simple RM3 meal is MORE than enough already.

Hey hey! Looks like everyone is really in to this food topic. XD

For me is, buy large amount of frozen food and salads to fill the fridge and cupboard. Then cook and mix my own meals every single day while I am at home =) Not every meal though. Saves quite a lot too with a oven toaster and foil as my cooking companion.
