Robinsons Spree

One of the few idioms I still remember from four years of higher Chinese classes popped up in my head while I was struggling with the spoils from today’s shopping expedition.


It didn’t help that we had to stop for dinner at Shin Kushiya, looking like fresh off the boat refugees while the rest of the Bonzi Bunch were all decked out for a night out at Overeasy.

Still, at least we managed to settle a good bit of the kitchen stuff in one day.

Zojirushi Zutto rice cooker and hot pot. Grey and silver, matchy-matchy with the rest of the kitchen counter. Robinsons was having a sale on these and they were significantly cheaper than at Tangs or Taka (based on our experience, Robs seems to have most things cheaper).

Dish drying rack in a cute box. This is white with baby blue accents. Original plan was to get the green one with orange accents, but that sold out. Seems like fate is on our side because after placing it on the counter, it’s pretty obvious that this colour combi works better.

Bread bin and a couple of pots.

A little overkill no? Macam LV bag or something…

Had to include a photo of this, too funny. It’s pretty obvious who their target market is I guess. Well, as they say, sex sells, even for German pots. Also, was quite confused to see instructions for a pot. Erm…put pot on stove, put food in pot, cook?!?

Ok time to ‘fess up. We’re not cooks, never will be. Didn’t get the cookware because they spread heat evenly or sear meat beautifully. Got ’em because their lid handles look like Mickey Mouse and the bigger pot reminds us of the Android mascot.

Some nice detailing where the handles meet the pot.
