The other half said to me most nights at dinner time, “I’m so thankful that you can cook and I’m even more thankful that you can cook different types of food!” :-). Ye lah kan, kalau I cuma tau masak nasi and lauk pauk aje, mau lah dia kebuluran tak dapat makan his western food, kehkehkeh. I guess he’s thankful sebab he can save loads of money on the takeaway and eating out expenses, hehehe. But it is true though, I can’t imagine what our household bills would be like if I can’t cook decent food/meals. I’m not talking about cooking 5 star restaurants type of food here mind you, I’m just talking about normal everyday type of food (well, my household kind of normal everyday food lah). Memang lah rasanya pokai every month kalau makan kat luar setiap hari. Some people can afford eating out everyday but we definitely can’t! Especially dengan all the varied likes and dislikes of the people in this house, lagilah susah nya kalau nak eat out unless you go to a food court.
The other half said everytime we go out to eat, he would think to himself, “hmmm, my wife can cook this so why do I want to waste my money buying this?”. Don’t get me wrong, he doesn’t mind going out kalau I malas or penat nak masak but I pulak yang rasa like it’s such a waste of money buying food that I can cook better at home. Tu yang lagi lah buat we all jarang keluar makan, hehehe…. I’d rather masak indomie goreng and goreng telur at home :-).
Like tonite’s dinner for example, I wonder how much it would have cost us to buy this at a restaurant? I wonder how much it would cost for a plate like this in Malaysia ye? I ni dah lama sangat2 tak makan western food kat M’sia sebab setiap kali balik M’sia, memang lah we all tak pandang western food ni except McD or KFC lah, hehehe. Rugi lah kan kalau balik M’sia tak merasa all the glorious asian food yang berlambak2 everywhere :-). I calculated just now, for 4 of us, tonite’s meals cost us roughly around $10 aje for all the raw produce and gas and electricity. Murah kan! Tu yang everyday, I said to my kids and the other half, bersyukur lah banyak2 dapat Mummy and wife yang pandai masak, hahahahahaha…. ;-). And the other half said to me pulak, “bersyukurlah banyak2 dapat hubby yang boleh makan everything!” 😛
P/S Tukar topic kejap, apa ke hal lah kereta ni parking macam ni? balik from work just now, I saw this car on our street, opposite my house, until la ni, still ada lagi kat situ. I’m really really perplexed how someone can park their car macam ni. What was the person thinking! Probably drunk masa tgh park the car ke tu yg tak sedar the car’s halfway on the road. Entah lah, tak tau nak cakap apa, cuma boleh geleng kepala aje lah tengok perangai manusia ni…….
