My Cooking

I invited my mother over for dinner.

What's for dinner?

- Mapo Tofu
- Spicy Kang Kong
- Pork Cutlet
- Bittergourd Soup

All repeated dishes. I personally feel that I have improved... because...

Now you see them...

... Now you don't! :D

It was a complete wipe-out! It has been more than a month since I cooked. Glad that my skills has not gone rusty. :)

My mummy's cooking

Unlike most mothers who started cooking in their 20s, my mummy only started cooking in her 50s. Nobody taught her how to cook and she doesn't know the computer well enough to search for recipes online. Which makes it all the more commendable that she is able to whip up a meal that I truly enjoy. I can really feel the love she puts into preparing all these dishes.

Sweet and sour pork (10/10)

Yums! One of these days, I am gonna ask her how she did it. :P

Sweet and sour sauce (to go with the pork) - 9/10

Fried beancurd (9/10)

Xiao Bai Nai (7/10)

Just look at the way she presented her dish! Nice right? Though I've got a feeling it wasn't a deliberate effort. :P

Watercress Soup (9/10)

It's really tasty. When I asked her what seasonings she added, she actually said none! Must really watch her cook 'live' someday. :P

I am so glad that I had my dinner at my mummy's place today. I love you, Mummy!
