When it comes to cooking, I’m not an expert.
I can handle simple dishes (e.g: spaghetti bolognese, basic chinese stir-fies, simple salads)… but complicated dishes are a no-no.
The love for food runs in my husband’s family.. Blueberry loves to cook, my Father-in-law makes good steaks, and my late Mother-in-law was a culinary instructor… As compared to them, my cooking skills are basic.. (much to my Father-in-law’s disappointment).
Not long ago, my Father-in-law gently suggested that I should help with dinner preparation. Since then, I’ve been actively helping in the kitchen.
One of the things I enjoy about cooking is.. the chance to see fresh ingredients. The fresh smell, colors and textures excite my senses.. I couldn’t help to snap some pictures.
Tonight, we are having petai and chinese spinach for dinner!
Petai (stink beans) has a pungent smell to it.. They are delicious, when cooked with sambal and prawns.

Look at the beautiful spinach leaves! What a lovely shade of green.
I’m glad for this season in the kitchen.
It has given me a new level of appreciation towards fresh ingredients, and a chance to practice my cooking skills.
May it be pan-fry, stir-fry, steaming, or boiling- I’m fine to try. But, oh please, don’t ask me to fry seafood or deep-fry- it’s too scary. I would rather run for my life. 😛
