Living in Portugal log: buying groceries

At the time of writing, it’s day three of living in Portugal.

We are still easing in, so we don’t have the brain space to plan a full groceries list for cooking at home.

But, we bought some ready-cooked food, bread, salad, cheese and cold cuts for sandwiches from the nearby supermarket, Continente. And today, another supermarket, Pingo Doce.

Buying groceries here, in general, is significantly cheaper, the items we bought: fresh milk, peanut butter, coffee, and even face moisturizer, cost double, or triple times more in Kuala Lumpur.
