Mother's Cooking

Last weekend I was back at my hometown for only 2 days. Time flew by so fast that before I knew it, I was already in the car driving back to KL. I wish I had more time being with my parents, maybe soon I'll invite them over to KL when I've settled down here.

Anyway while I was there, my mum actually put in the effort to whip up some dishes for me and my brother. It wasn't an elaborate meal, neither was it made with expensive ingredients, but for us it was mum's cooking. And that to us is the perfect meal. Check out some of the pictures I managed to capture, mother kept asking what it was for, and I just told her it's to share it with the whole "world".

What can I say, I love you mum. Not forgetting father too, both of you brought us up with love and I hope to be able to repay the love you've showered unto us that helped shaped us into what we've become. Mother's cooking is still the best for me and my brother in this whole wide world.

Home cook is always the BEST! I'm appreciating my meal at home now, certainly will miss all of them when my sem starts again :D

You make me extreme homesick now. Look at the soup, cooked to perfection, the colour says everything really very 'lou fo tong' feel. Darn, I want to drink soup also. Meatballs 100% handmade one right? Steamed pork with salted fish and duck egg, the taste of childhood.
So when you wanna invite me over to have dinner at your house?

tekkaus said...

tekkaus said...

Fried meatballs looked delish. Must be very crunchy on the outside, tender juicy in the inside. :D

Alice Law said...

Nikel Khor said...

suituapui said...

Ooooo....mum's cooking! Best in the world! Money can't buy. Yum...yum... The sweet and sour looks so elaborate...everything looks so good. She must have spent a lot of time preparing - kim kia (golden son) coming home.

So kesian old people these days...children all sprout wings and fly away - and some do not even bother to come home and visit - at best, only once a year - Chinese New Year (and that also, mostly to meet up with old friends, home around the same time).

Sui Ying Tan said...
