Good Buy

I consider these 3 items below very useful and practical. I feel very happy to have them.

(1) This is very useful and practical, my mother likes it very much.
Guess what it is?

Answer: Tongs to grip and lift pots and bowls which are hot and which you cannot use hands. Tongs are commonly used as a kitchen utensil.

The price for this, if I did not remember wrongly, is S$5.00.

(2) Portable Fan

I am someone who cannot stand heat and Singapore's weather is always very warm. This portable fan came in very handy and useful to me, now I can use it whenever I go out. Price - S$8.00.
(3) IKEA weighing machine

I bought this many years ago, in 2005 (I think). We can use it to keep track of our weights any time we want. I find it very useful.

All the above items may not be very significant but they are very practical and useful and which make our life better and more comfortable.

Don't you think they are good buy?

I would love to get one of those tongs. A Hong Kong friend gave us each a portable fan while we were there for holiday. My son bought us a digital weighing machine. Very useful items to have!

I agree with you that all three items are very useful!

I think the tongs are useful to a certain extent depending on the size of the pots/pans and the total weight (utensil plus content).

I don't even have mitts, let alone tongs like this one. I just fold up my table cloths to double as temporary mitts when I deal with hot dishes from the oven.

Fan... can meh? In the heat, it will just blow hot air to your face. If only we have portable mini air-cond. *wishful thinking*.

I have a weighing machine at home, but... cannot remember which corner I stuffed it to... I use it once in a purple moon (purple > blue)...

Wow! You carry the whole portable fan out. I thought a paper folding fan would be handy enough.

TM: The portable fan is quite mini and light, I can even put it inside my small bag so very handy also, not a hassle :)
