D-I-Y Breakfast Set

Both me and my Prince Charming love to have our breakfast at Ya Kun especially on Weekends. It's just so nice sipping the hot cup of tea, enjoying the half boiled eggs and munching the cripsy Kaya bread. However, if you do a minor calculations on how much you have to spent on 2 breakfast sets over there every weekends, I think you may consider doing it yourself. I'm a stingy person!

Look here! Let me do the numbers for you:

Breakfast Set A

2 Slices of Kaya bread
1 Cup of Tea or Coffee
2 Half boil eggs
Total: $4.20

2 person cost: $4.20 X 2 = $8.40
Suppose we only visit once a week, that would add up to: $33.60 /month

Now, if you do it yourself, here's the cost:

1 loaf of traditional bread: $1.20 (8 Slices)
2 Lipton tea sackets : approx $0.40
Hot water: FOC
Sugar: approx $0.10
Butter: approx $0.20
Kaya: approx $0.50

Total cost in all: $2.40 X 2 =$4.80
One month: $19.20
You can save up almost 50%! What's more, you don't have to Queue up ;)

I'm actually surprised that my Toaster oven can do such nice effects on the bread. The lines on the toasts looked so nice!

Daphne, I bet you must be missing this! Don't you feel this is part of our childhood memories.

Sipping the hot milo (at that time) from the tea plate and munching away the cripsy bread. Awww..

I had to tell you that I'm becoming stingy.Everything is going up, look at the price increase in rice and the inflations everywhere. I really got to cut down on some expenses before I go crazy again :P
