An Egostic Mom!

After a dose of the cough mixture last night, I couldn't get up at 6am this morning despite the alarm beeping loudly... I switched it off and drowsily, I hit the pillow and was in dreamland again. When I finally opened my eyes, it was 8am!! Gosh, my office starts at 8am and I was still in bed!

Ok, never mind lar... drowsy ma, what to do.. at least I went to work, right? Sick as I was, I still drove to office because of my conscience and my responsibility... ahem... ahemmmmm... cough... cough... ahemmmmmm... hate this phlegm!!

Tell me one thing.. sick as I was, why do I still have such a good appetite? I was yearning desperately for rice, rice...RICE!! Thinking of that motivated me to work fast-fast.... and upon reaching home, within an hour or so, these three dishes were laid on the table... (capable or not? ahemmmmmmmmm ...throat itchy la)
When my girl saw the dishes, she exclaimed, "Wa...!!! Looks good!"
But half way through the meal, she said...
"Mi, why the dishes moe mei geh?"
(Why all the dishes so tasteless?)
ooopss!!... I realized I forgot to put salt...
no wonder, I thought it was due to my taste buds gone tasteless..
And my reply......
"Don't eat so saltish, no good for body!"

  10. No harm done, I think you could use the salt shaker on them? Wow, Claire, you went to work AND cooked all this food???? Did you get in trouble for being late? How are you feeling today? Does your girl ever cook? Are you teaching her?

  11. The fish, no need salt and the baked beans...got tomato sauce already...and broccoli - just boil, very sweet and nice...no need to add salt. But do not over boil, serve still nice and crunchy.

    Maybe you always eat out, so taste buds spoilt already - anything and everything not salty enough...and no msg, not nice.
