Shopping for family groceries

This morning I go out with my dear to have breakfast at SS15, Subang Jaya. The famous pork noodles shop where we have to wait at least 20 minutes for it to come. Then after he send me back, I waited around 10am to go Aeon Big to park and walk over to Subang Parade. I got my hair cut for RM18, a lady was earlier than me she started waiting at 10am. The lady that works in SS15, Subang Jaya says that she is living Ampang but come to Subang Jaya to work. It is convenient for her since she is living nearby LRT station at Ampang. After she left, then my turn to have my hair cut.

Only one staff at the salon, she was complaining that she works alone and needs to handle to salons. Another in Empire Shopping Gallery where she parked her car. Her colleague was on leave for few days to Thailand. Anyway she loves her job, she been a hairdresser for over 30 years.

So after my haircut, I have went to MBO Cinema to redeem my birthday tickets. I chosen to watch Kungfu Jungle movie. Then walk around a shop nearby Reject shop for shoes, try some shoes and nearly bought one but in my mind I was saying I have enough shoes. RM39.90 of a pair shoes I can purchase a pack of 1.9kg milk powder.

So at Aeon Big shopping for milk powder, RM39.90 for 1.9kg. Another choice was RM43.5 for 2kg. I certainly choose the 1.9kg over 2kg, I saw the same brand which selling in 99 cost RM41.xx. Anyway the family groceries cost me RM305.10. I bought six packets of milk powder, whole family is taking this milk powder even my kids. I also bought other milk dairy product for my son to bring school everyday to drink. So when I told my man, how much I spend on groceries, he was shock of the money spend. Milk powder prices as you know it would goes up and never comes down unless there's promotion.

Being mommy never easy, we need to think how much we need to spend and how much to use for family household and on personal etc. Tell me if your man do the counting for you?

I attended the Shell FuelSave College Competition Finale on 11 November 2014 at Publika to find out who are the winners for this year. Check out the instagram video, I posted on instagram sherrygo. The night we enjoy performance by Elizabeth Tan and Kuah JenHan. 

The Shell FuelSave College Competition comes with all 10 participating schools coming together to celebrate their efforts in the finale event at Publika. IACT College emerged as the 2014 winner and took home the championship trophy, RM15,000 cash prize and potential internship opportunities with Shell Malaysia and its media and communications agency partners.

Held for the fourth consecutive year, the Shell FuelSave College Competition which is an initiative by Shell Malaysia, challenged students from public and private universities to plan and execute an integrated marketing and communications campaign to promote and educate Malaysia’s Gen Y drivers on fuel efficiency and smarter driving habits.

The competition aims at providing participating tertiary students a chance to experience the working environment within the marketing and communications industry and to gain deeper insights in the process of conceptualising and executing a campaign from start to end.

Taking up the challenge this year were teams from Monash University, Tunku Abdul Rahman University College, HELP University, UCSI University, Sunway University, IACT College, Taylor’s University, Universiti Putra Malaysia, National University of Malaysia (UKM) and Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM).

The campaign journey for the teams this year started in September with a briefing and mentoring session by industry experts to coach them on how to put together a successful marketing and communications campaign to motivate their audience to take the #ShellPledge. They then presented their proposals to a panel of judges for approval before executing their plans.

In a final bid to gain points to win the competition, the teams gave it their all in a Bonus Round Challenge earlier today. They had to complete a series of three challenges that were based on the Shell FuelSave Tips which tested their knowledge on fuel efficiency and smarter mobility.

Taylor’s University was the first runner-up winning RM8,000 and a trophy while Universiti Putra Malaysia was the second runner up taking home RM5,000 and a trophy as well.

In addition to the prizes for the winning teams, a special award was presented to IACT College for collecting the most pledges for the #ShellPledge contest. They were presented with a cash prize of RM2,000 by Ms. Lee Ai Hoon the General Manager of Marketing of Bermaz Motor Sdn Bhd – exclusive distributor of Mazda vehicles in Malaysia. The #ShellPledge contest which ended on 31 October 2014 will see the grand prize winner driving away in a new Mazda2 SKYACTIV, co-sponsored by Bermaz Motor.

Winners will be announced on 15 November 2014 onwards via email, telephone or email.

The night is fun time get together with blogger friend, Nannie and her children. Thanks PR Sherry for inviting my son and I for this interesting event.
