Can I be a GOOD WIFE/MOTHER?
Suppose to be lying on my comfy Mr Bean printed bed..
Instead, I found myself at the busy wet market..
How should i start..is the first thing in my mind.
I was holding on to my shopping list.
I headed to the vegetable stall..
picked potato, mushroom etc etc....but could not find the vege i want..
Called "Ma Li Cai" or "Yan Jing Cai"..a vege that is good for eyesight..
Luckily, the auntie helped me and she even taught me how to wash n cook it..
I even asked her the method to cook steamed fish..
She taught me but weird method though..she say steam fish no need any sauce..
Weird..but nice auntie..
Then, went to pork stall and buy minced meat..
Dunno but maybe I asked stupid question, "Uncle, minced meat muz wash?"
The uncles LOL-ing at me and teach me tis n dat..
Then, went to buy prawn n fish..uncles also teach me tis n dat..
Then, also got help from provision shop auntie on how to cook meat ball..
U guys muz be wondering why suddenly buy fish, buy meat n buy vege..
Yes, I cooked!
Yes, for my special visitor to my place today! =D
I cooked b3fore but the dishes I cooked for my special guest are all new dishes to me..was abit nervous somehow but I got confidence!
Wah..si bei tired lo..

Hipcup 1: the meatball dispered once it went to the hot oil..
