Woke up at the strike of noon, I irritated my sister again as I already promised her to make kebab for our breakfast. And I have already broke my promise since yesterday. Perhaps I will fulfill it tomorrow.
Actually my mother has already woke me up a few hours earlier, asking me to buy potatoes. Well, get my hair wet a lil bit, wash my face, and off to Kedai Runcit Embak with my bike, and shout “Ketang skelo!” to my dear Embak, pay RM2.50, and rode back to home and off to bed again!
Today my lunch was superb! Mak made bergedel daging masak kicap! Owh! No wonder she asked me to buy potatoes. I ate my brunch (breakfast+lunch) with a smile, munching every juicy begedel on the dish plate, indulging each of my taste buds.
For the first time in this holiday, I finally eat something that is called home-made food. One may expect that the youngest child like me will be pampered and treated like king whenever back home. One might expect that my mom will cook the best for me.
Well, my case is a lil bit different. The first dinner at home after months of Baccalaureating is McD. The next day lunch was instant noodle, which I made it for my mom and I. Dinner that night was Hentam Sajalah Fried Rice by Chef Hosni. Lunch the very next day was catfish (bought), and the dinner is Spaghetti Mushroom + garlic bread, also by Chef Hosni. Yesterday lunch was sotong bakar and telur dadar, also by Chef Hosni, and for dinner, I ate Roti Tempayan, (bought at a night market nearby).
May be it sounds pathetic, but I think it is interesting to cook for your family. My mom always counts on me to cook for the family rather than counting on my sister, who is as lazy as Garfield. For Chinese, food symbolizes wealth. Food means prosperity and fortune. Every grain of rice, every piece of meat, every drops of oil, every packet of flour, should be cherished. Something I agree on with them.
Family is a group of strangers that are with you since your first breath. Whether you realize or not, you are what your family are. They influence you in many ways in your life. They gave a lot to you and they are still giving. In appreciation, give something to them back.
We live by what we get and we enjoy it by what we give.
Life is once. Appreciate it. Appreciate whatever in you have in your life.
This is Lord Hosni the Wise. If you are reading this, you are the Resistant.
