introducing: the new fridge

living without a properly working fridge for weeks is hard work, i tell you. darn hard.

i kept having to throw out milk. every time i opened a carton of milk i had to finish it or made sure i use it in around three days otherwise the whole carton would bad. bad milk smells soooo sour and gross. i should know. i’ve had to wash carton after carton after carton of it.

mould grew on cheese. i had to buy smaller amount of cheese. expensive business.

vegies went limp very quickly. i had to buy vegies in small portion and kept going back to the shop every other day to buy fresh ones. not good because most of the time i got tempted to buy other things too.

leftover went bad in a day or two.

butter went soft and oily.

i threw out a lot of fruits including strawberries, nectarines, plums, grapes, rockmelon and another kind of melon. one container of homemade potato salad. a container of vla that i made to accompany my homemade choux pastry which i also ended up throwing out (made too much).  a big bowl of salad. and these were just the leftover food from one barbecue.

the fridge was stinky. and whenever you opened it, the bad smell lingered for quite a while.

thankfully, the new fridge came.

we can now enjoy cold drink. i can stock up on yoghurt again. the vegies compartments are full of delicious, colourful vegies. milk stays good for some time.

this fridge. it is officially my hero.

and check out what we have inside. it’s quite a healthy fridge, no? that’s because all the unhealthy food are in the freezer 🙂

i am sooo glad we have a healthy fridge again. i didn’t even realise how much i missed it.

    Congrats on the new fridge. I can never imagine how my life would be without a working fridge either. Might be worse than not having a toilet LOL

      oh my goodness, i’ve forgotten you guys lived without a bathroom when it was being renovated. that’s absolutely mental. imagine having to go to the toilet at 3 am! i’d give a sad, puppy-eyed face to the people dong it just so they’d do it faster, i think.

    ah…. talk about fridge…
    my hubby didn’t close the fridge door properly today… good thing he only went out for about 4 hours thus, the food is OK..
    thing is, the fridge isn’t really cold now.. and i just did groceries shopping yesterday.. ugghhh….
    2 tubs of dairy farmers vanilla yoghurt, the small pack of feta cheese (unopened)..
    arrgghh i’ve put the yoghurts in the freezer, can’t risk it goes bad, they’re so yummy!!


    anyway, it’s a very old fridge (very old = 5 years) and it’s way too small..
    maybe it’s time to get a new one

      definitely time for a new fridge. when this one arrived, we were amazed by how the door actually closed itself while the old one we had to push the door in. something to do with the seal. i guess you can always just change the seal.

      oh… you’re a youghurt and feta chese lover too hehehe. they’re so good in salad (feta cheese).
      hey, maybe the yoghurt will be frozen youghurt now 🙂

      is a 5 y.o fridge old? i didn’t want to get a new one because the old one was only 4 y.o.

          that’s exactly the same with us hahaha bought the cheapest one so my husband said it wasn’t worth fixing. and my mum said once it’s gone bad, even if you get it fixed, it’d never be 100% good again. so we got a new one.

          i guess it’s getting a bit too small now that you’ve started cooking at home a bit more 🙂
