How influencing.......

I just wonder how influencing your mom on you when you need to make decision on which brand to choose...For me, my mom play an important role in influencing me (indirectly).

When I was young, I saw my mom save some money just purely want to buy some nice quality container - Tupperware. At that moment, I just think it is nothing special about this brand, etc....but, over the years, my sis also buy Tupperware for daily use. And, even now, my house also got some Tupperware container from my mom.......Initally I just not willing to spend extra money on Tupperware brand, till recently, I have the urge to buy it, and within a day, I spend around RM 500+ on it.......exclude RM 200+ earlier for buying tumbler, etc for my kids. Now, only I appreciate Tupperware brand, if compare to normal container, etc....there is a different. Since my mom is not around, I will be the one who manage my household, so, only now, start to invest like my mom used too before......I only really realise it when I start to manage my household..........

Another brand, that I plan to invest without doubt is wok and pan - for cooking. Have you heard of AMC brand? It is very expensive wor, but, funny, my mom got whole set of it at home. And, trust me, it is really so easy to use and it won't stick on the pan, etc.....with the 'metering' guide you. At the moment, I manage to 'steal' a saucepan and small pot from my mom.....Since I'm not ready or plan to cook yet( I mean 'invest' myself to learn to cook), so, this project will be delayed at the moment.....maybe, I think I will only plan to have it when I become SAHM.

I also used tupperware..Expensive but worth the investment because it last long and also keep food fresh. We keep dried food, vege and forzen fish/chicken/meat which actually keep fresh and last longer. I slowly buy but now stop since enough liau...
