When My Fridge is Broken ...

Saturday, September 9
When I got home yesterday, I found that the fridge was broken. I move most of food to freezer at basement. But still I had to get rid of some food. I am using a cooler box for food from fridge, but I don't feel comfortable to keep fresh food in the box for a long time. So I have to go to grocery store everyday to buy stuff for one meal and I would have to use them up all the time. Hopefully the maintenance is coming soon. arrrgg
