Mature cheddar and onion chips (only for mature people)

So, as promised, here is a post on another packet of chips. I decided to buy after seeing a packet on sale at Cold Storage – Mature Cheddar & Onion potato chips!


I laughed when I first saw its packaging. Mature? Didn’t know cheddar has to go through puberty. Will it grow hair? Muahaha.

Jokes aside, this Scottish product is lovely visually and subtle taste-wise. I was trying to get a hint of cheddar but the onion was stronger. It makes for a good munch as these crisps had thin burned potato skin edges and specks of parsley on them, making them very authentic.

Perhaps I am used to the run-in-the-mill chips which has intense flavourings (or some may call it “MSG”), so I found that these chips were not as stimulating in its taste.

Having said that, its warm moss green packaging makes it very inviting. For the burned potato skin edges on the chips, I may consider buying it a second time.


The Holy Week

Today is the start of Ash Wednesday.

Imagine the days leading to the cross… What could Jesus be feeling? Anxious? If I were him, I would try to muster my courage to face the cross, knowing that it’s the right thing to do. But I would still be overwhelmed with pain and heartache, because I know I will have to face the cross physically alone.

The day before Jesus was led to the cross, he was praying…

“And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.” – Luke 22:44

Like great drops of blood… Jesus was in anguish and that moment in prayer in Gethsemane was so deep, so intense.

Have I ever entered such intense moment in prayer?

Something to reflect upon as I remember Jesus’ journey to the cross, for me, an undeserving sinner.
