I hate crowds. Especially crowds in shopping centres. I hate the mad rush for a shopping trolley. I hate having to elbow my way through the fruits and vegetables section, then queue for what seems like forever to get my selection weighed and tagged. I hate having to pick through scrawny shrimps, left over by people who’ve already picked out the juiciest and freshest.
That’s why I find it such a boon to have Tesco Hypermarkets open their doors as early as 8 a.m. everyday. By 9 a.m., I’m done with my grocery-shopping and can spare a few minutes for the twins to savour their ice cream as they check out the empty pay-per-entry play area (empty because it only opens at 10.30 a.m.).
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
