    Just been myself, nice wide aisles too. You can get a stroller down them without knocking everything flying. Things must be looking up.

    Ladies:

    Just had another delivery from Park 'N Shop in Tung Chung. All you have to do is buy $400, and the delivery to D.B. is free. Otherwise, it's $20.

    Thanks for the tip. I still can't understand why you can't get things in DB and resent having to travel to Tung Chung for essential supplies. Adding to the list over the weekend:

    * Baby yoghurt
    * Huggies overnights
    * Glad bake

    PATHETIC ! Friendly staff though.

    Hi,
    Just come back from holiday and found out there's a customers forum meeting for Park N shop. It's today but there are only ten places, so I don't know if anyone has managed to get a spot.

    Hi Jools

    Thanks for that. I saw the notice, but just don't have time at the moment ! Working mums (even part time) are the busiest people. I will sit down and write them a letter when I have time.

    jane01:

    Just a little tips from my mother-in-law, unfortunately has nothing to do with PNS, but will hopefully help you out:
    I always buy fresh basil and parsley and then freeze them. I find the flavor better than the dried ones. Wash and dry them before putting them in small glass bottles. I use baby food bottles. Finely chop the parsley before you put in the bottle, and scrap it out with the spoon when you need it. As for basil leaves, separate into individual leaves before putting them in the bottle. It can be easily taken out one by one when you need them. It'll be crisp in the beginning. Just leave them at room temperature for a while, and voila.... you'll have fresh basil leaves minutes later.

    Just checked into Mannings this morning, they also carry Pampers Sensitive baby wipes that is $8 cheaper than PNS!

    And like Jools, I stock pile when they have the things that I want.

    Good Luck!

    Ollyvia - thanks for the tips! I did not know you could freeze herbs. Thanks for explaining how. I have also started growing them on my balcony. Coriander and parsley are not going well, but basil, mint and thyme have survived my not-at-all-green thumb.
