With our fast paced lifestyle, it’s not surprising that everything is done in an instant. For most people who regard time as gold, it’s essential that everything should be completed in a press of a button or even in a wink.
And filling the tummy isn’t an exception. Aren’t you thankful that we have fastfoods, instant coffee, instant noodles, instant whatever?
Few hours after our lunch last Sunday, our son, Gabby was enjoying his favorites – a slice of pizza and a few pieces of soft buttered garlic sticks while my wife, Tina and I found a food stall at the basement of Shangri la mall that offers cheap skewered fish balls, shrimp balls, chicken balls, crab sticks and many more for only PhP 29 – 32+ per stick; we added PhP 10 for each cup of noodles + soup and voila, we enjoyed a delicious SHABU SHABU in an instant!
Although admittedly it’s not-that-healthy, one cannot deny the fact that it can be very satisfying! We only spent PhP 120 or so to taste and experience instant happiness with the family!
What’s your take on instant food? Are you the type of person who can never live without a microwave oven? hahaha! What instant things other than food do you enjoy?
