My Limited Edition For Aaron

I was not feeling very good during the past few days when Aaron was home. In fact, my appetite was nearly down to 3 out of 10 when he was around, so unfortunate.... Nevertheless, we still went around to get some nice Ipoh food before he left, eventually he ended up eating more cos I ended up looking instead.... my appetite was just not there!!

The night before he left Ipoh, we were discussing what to take for lunch the next day. When I suggested that I cook instead of eating out, I was surprised that he was more than HAPPY! He thought I would not be up to it to cook.. but indeed I was.. in fact, since I have no appetite, I prefer to eat at home, at least cook one meal la...... that is what a Mother should do, right? hahahaha... no la.. I speak only on behalf of myself...

So...early early morning at 8am, I woke up and dashed to the market... and by 11am, we were "walloping" these simple dishes in the house.....

Not much choice in the market on Monday...
Ended up steaming a Bawal Emas (Golden Pomfret)

AA wanted eggs with chinese sausage
I added in some big onions...

Need to finish the cauliflower given by my mum...
Stir fried it with some "canned abalone bits"

ABC soup.. added in some corns and dried scallops..

A simple meal for Aaron before he left...

Today he is back to food court meals again...
Hopefully he finds himself a girlfriend soonest
who can provide homecooked food regularly... hahahaa....
*hint hint*

    well anyways I also wanted my mum cook so much =P because basically me and my mum and my dad was working, eating food court food the most almost everyday =)

    thanks for sharing

  27. You may think those meals are simple but they looked totally foreign to me. I'm living in the South Eastern United States so I didn't recognize any of that food (except the corn on the cob in that soup).
    Hope you are feeling better and your appetite is back.
