Grocery Shopping Guides

It's a long weekend in Malaysia as we are celebrating Malaysia Day on 16th September. Most of the supermarkets and hypermarkets will be having special promotion. So, are you going out for grocery shopping?

Since the petrol price hiked, we need to carefully plan our trip before we go out to minimize unnecessary expenses. Everytime before I go out for shopping, I'll write down a list of groceries that I need and then refer to the promotion brochures of each store from the Internet:

TheStore Pacific

You can Like the Facebook page of each store to get their updates directly from your Facebook Home. For groceries that are on super low promotion price, they will be out of stock very soon. It is better to go shopping in the morning because the early bird catches the worm.

The distance of the store from your house and toll should be considered too. Another thing to consider is the parking charge. Before I stop, please remember to Like 48smart Facebook Page as well so that you don't miss out our post! Thanks and Happy Malaysia Day!

Apple iPhone 5S & iPhone 5C

Apple unveiled two new iPhones last night for the first time, including the flagship iPhone 5S and a colourful model iPhone 5C that is made of plastic. Both models will feature the new operating system, iOS7.

The cheaper iPhone 5C comes with candy colour of blue, green, red, yellow and white while there is a gold iPhone 5S in addition to the silver and space grey versions. The Home button of iPhone 5S is now made of sapphire crystal instead of just glass and equipped with Touch ID. It features a 500ppi resolution capacitive fingerprint sensor that recognizes an individual’s finger as it touches the Home button to unlock the iPhone.

iPhone 5C, on the other hand, is just an iPhone 5 in plastic. That's why iPhone 5 is retired and only iPhone 4S, iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S are available. iPhone 5C is intended for first-time smartphone buyers and developing countries such as China. However, the problem is that the iPhone 5C is still not so cheap if compared to other smartphones.
