13022016 Marketing Day!

Every Saturday, I can join the Group for Marketing. This is where we will be taken to the Stutong Wet Market followed by the Boulevard Supermarket with a time limit of 30 minutes and 60 minutes respectively. The Company does this for the benefit of foreign staff who does not have the time during normal working days to shop for their food. Yes, they practically work EVERYDAY.

Including myself, there were six of us.The Transport picks everyone up from different location and mine was on the 0830 slot.

Stutong Wet Market

Must be CNY mood as some of the stalls are still closed, I think.

This is the vegetable section where 60% of the vegetables looked very strange to me

Despite this, I could not locate any spring onions.

The prices of certain items are much more expensive to me which I later found out from the Supermarket. Then again, I know nuts about shopping for food since I looked at the price and not the quality/freshness. In the end, the RM4.00 for two lemons was bigger and fresher than the RM3.79 for four smaller, slightly less healthy, readily packed lemons in the Supermarket. Unlike West Malaysia, everyone weighs the products with electronic scale.

Left is the vege section while the on the right would be the meat section. There are stalls selling fruits as well but because I am not sure how ripe the papayas and bananas were, I had problems buying either one. 
Going up the stairs, there is a foodcourt but alas, time's up and we're off to the Supermarket

This is the Boulevard where the Supermarket is well, really Super. Since we arrived very much before 10AM, the place was practically empty. I was here weeks ago but I did not realise this was THE Boulevard where Daiso was.

If you came later in the day, this whole place would be full of people.

So, at the moment, I would say there was less than 30 customers in here, although the staff was ready in full force. Also, I was expecting to get some chicken fillet here, but just like the wet market, there's none and I don't really have a chopper yet. Plus, I could not find any pre-packed Yee Sang which was so common in Jusco, KL.

Moving across to their Hardware section, I was surprised that there were some IKEA products on sale!
Items such as the plastic bag holder, the dish drainer, chairs, lamps and even tables were being sold! Although I am not sure how the prices compared, but I bought this dish drainer for RM10.90

What I bought: I was quite miffed at the carrots and cucumbers which came up to RM8.00, plus the two towels which after looking back at the prices, the cheaper price was for Members. Stupid me for not reading carefully. I'll need to get one of their membership cards later on.
So, the damage was 2x Lemons (RM4.00), 5x carrots & 3x cucumbers (RM8.00), String beans (RM2.00), Papaya with suspected ripeness (RM6.00), Onions (RM1.23), Ikea Flundra Dish dryer rack (RM10.90), Milo 3in1 (RM12.99), Mocha Coffee (RM13.99), Skim Milk (RM5.79), Potato Snack (RM4.99) Tin of Corn(RM2.38), Brown bath towel (RM19.90 not 10.50), orange Brown towel (RM10.90 not 7.50) and some toothbrush (RM4.00)
