Biggest photographic society in the UK lol.
Now forgive me for saying this, but I just think 菜饭 is such an amazing phenomenon. Basically, you give people what they would normally eat at home, mass-produced, but still tasting pretty good, at three thousandth of the median household income. That’s really incredible. People like myself thrive on cheap comfort food. So the goal when (if) I end up in some expensive European city, is to basically not starve and get depressed over not having my food. I made this guide for Edinburgh.
1. Sainsbury’s/Boots Meal Deal
Basically this is the best shit la if you can survive on sometimes-crappy sometimes-pretty passable sandwiches + a drink + a snack (like granola, chips, a chocolate bar) for £3 (I think its £3.49 in London). Now that does seem like pretty good value. Thank God too that they don’t have toast sandwiches.
2. Student Deals at Restaurants
Although soon enough you realise that no human being is meant to eat that many portions of chips in his entire life.
I put this last because while you save lots of money here, it costs you in other things (like obviously, time and effort).
I plan to add more Chinese food recipes here.
3.1 Supermarket shopping
I’m told that buying full-price chicken breast is a scam. This website compares food prices and the University of Edinburgh even has a guide. Some of the price differences are like woah why do people pay double the price for onions as Tesco. Obviously, best to buy stuff on sale and at night when they’re about to expire.
Been doing so much reading for my research internship that Google ads are now asking me to buy ‘sequenced cDNA clones’ instead of Taipei hotel stays and Clash of Clans.
3. Praying for God’s provision when we have yet to use what he has already provided.
