day 1560 Рforkless 

in my packed lunch today is one of my favorites korean bean sprouts that my mom knows i love. eating late lunches means people get dibs on everything, everyday. cutlery especially forks miraculously go missing at the office, but i got to eat my lunch somehow. if all spoons go missing i’ll soon be eating with whatever utensil is left which could be knives or tongs

day 1329 – mothering me

family will always be family and i am grateful to have caring ones. last night my mom said i was pale, this morning she handed me bottles and said i need to replenish the blood i lost. these red dates doesn’t taste good but i’ll drink it to give her a peace of mind. my mom was clearly more concerned than i was. at the end of the day, i know my mom cares for me more than i know it and still treats me her little girl

day 1253 – hearty meal

image

all my favourite dishes were on the dinner table because i’m finally home for dinner on last day before parents leave for mexico. it’s her way of saying it’s good to have me home for dinner for once. it was a great homecooked meal; i enjoyed every dish and stuffed myself too much. i have yet to get back on track with eating the way i would like to and that needs to be done starting tomorrow. now that she’s going on vacation, i might as well not cook to solve that problem

day 1106 – hungriness

for some odd reason i was hungrier than usual. even after a snack, my stomach was still hungry so i ate some tofu while waiting for my mom to cook dinner. dinner was finally ready and i am happy it had some of my favourite food like baked salmon and fresh corn on a cob. having an appetite again is a good sign; maybe it’s a sign that my lingering cold is really over; or maybe it’s a sign i am healthy again

day 964 – soup

image

found a note and a big bowl of homemade soup on the kitchen counter courtesy of mom. i haven’t been home for meals much lately so i have been missing out on all her homecooking and healthy soups. she’s always concerned i am not eating enough and not getting nutritious meals in. i guess in a way she has all the reason to do so because in her eyes, i never seem to eat enough

day 434 – happy happy birthday

image

it’s a special day as we have a mini celebration for the best mom i could possibly ask for. wish my mom nothing but the best from the bottom of my heart, because no one does it better than her. another year has gone by in the blink of an eye. we are preparing to chow down on some strawberry mousse cake. so much for cutting out some junk and sweets and trying to maintain a balanced eating regime

day 428 – portobello

mom preparing to cook¬†some delicious looking giant stuffed mushroom for dinner tonight and still blown away by how big these fungi can become. no denying i am a picky eater and i don’t like to eat the chinese brown mushroom but i will eat portobello and other kinds of mushrooms which according to mom is suppose to be very healthy. i guess all mushrooms are to some degree
