August 15, 2008

So lastnight I tune I wanna see how cheaply I can make dinner so I tried this recipe of Annette Human (nogal from “Huisgenoot Mikrogolf Wenresepte”) in the microwave (cuase its more energy efficient and I call my Microwave Bob). This stuff is called “Melkkos” (boere resep you see) and its basically Milk with some flour and butter and salt and cinnamon and sugar and its cheap. So it was like R10 for three people to scoff kief. Cheap bru..

So I started checking around what else I can score cheaply and as I look on the Internet I spot the Americans reckon that console sales how spiked last month, flying in the face of the socalled worldwide recession.

Check, things stand like this. We as humans smaak to be entertained, a lot. So we do lots of braais, beers, movies, chicks and other kark like that. Obviously that means groot kark for our bank manager in times like these where things are going vrot with the Ripple rate (Re.. , Reppe.. Rep .. ag whatever you know what I mean).

So now these clever consumers check that if you buy like a Wii (nee sies man) or a Xbox (EksD**s) or a PS3 (Again with the Pee) then you can save tons of cash in the long run cuase you will be too busy tagging tango’s in the conflict zones of the middle-east (huh!?).

Interesting hey? Now I am wondering about that new HD Decoder from LotsOfChoice … hmmmmmm

    Hey China!

    Bladdy lekker site. I found it while I was searching for a recipe for melkkos. Of course, you had no such thing here. But hey, I remember when 10 bucks (which I stole from my Ma’s handbag) could buy me all sorts of stuff for ages! Then, when I was in high school, jussie, that was like in the 70’s, that was my pocket money for the whole TERM! 10 bucks! Of course, I was in boarding school in East London, but what else do you have to buy when all you need is a coke, chappies (4 for 1c) and vetkoek with jam (4c each!). S’TROO!

    Now, I’m in Houston, Tex-ass! Ek mis die ou land nogal, but not the drama.

    Cheers and have a Castle for me! Can’t buy them here.

    John
