Perhaps there was a demand as lately I noticed that my local grocer, Family Store in Kip Mall have been selling flower bouquets in an affordable price range. The choices are not extravagant but it is still a nice feeling to have fresh flowers albeit mild scents in the house from time to time. I picked up a bouquet selection like this one at only RM7.20.
It is now sitting nicely in my kitchen by the window in a thermos vase. I do not have the cap for the thermos anymore hence repurposed as a mini vase. I hope these flowers could last me for a week as it is a luxury I could afford once in a blue moon. Still wishing hard for more local florists to spring up in my area.
