BUDGET MEAL: SERIES #1

Since I came out on the article on frugality, I have decided to launch a new project of getting the best food with the least amount of money spent. Nowadays, with the price of everything shooting up (except the salary...hehe), eating out could be rather expensive. Some simple meals can be prepared with a small budget of RM10or even less. The best part is, it can serve 2 persons for 2 meals. In this project, I am going to introduce to you a few simple and economical ways to budget on your food consumption. It would not take long to prepare too.
