Land of locked fridges…

10 Dec

Imagine baking a sumptuous triple-layer chocolate cake and putting it in the fridge under lock and key?  Hiding the keys from everyone else so that the cake’s only reserved pour moi!  Only in India have I seen fridges that come with a set of keys…Now why?  Can you just see losing the keys and resorting to I-don’t-know-what-kitchen-tool to pry the thing open?!  

My latest musings from the world of enigmas and contradictions….you think the fridge with keys is weird, try a washing machine on the balcony!  Not only was it my first ever front loading Onida Super Washer I bought, well, practically for nothing – the equivalent of $240!  When’s the last time SEARS super sale offered washing machines for that price?  The coolest thing in the hot country is that my Onida now adorns the apartment balcony with a plastic hood on to keep the dust off I’m told….wow, my very own frontloader keeping the flower pots company.

Could the locked fridge be to keep the creepy crawlers out of the food-:) I dunno, whad’ya think?  Happy pre-holiday shopping sprees to ya all…kind of hard to wrap my mind around pre-Yule season activities when it’s +25C at 11 in the morning…aha.  Kind of happy, no feeling spectacularly HAPPY not to have to worry about consumerism this year.

    Hey Peelinglayers
    How are ya. Was wondering about that locked fridge. I know that there are a lot of
    primates in India, any in your area? That could be a good reason to lock the fridge.
    Stay cool 🙂
