Seriously, seronok gila tengok Yun makan bertambah.
I do have talent and good instincts in the kitchen. And, because I do it well, I love to do it. I cook because I love to eat, and if someone is near who also loves to eat, all the better. The simpler the dishes the better for me, but I never compromise on taste.
I love the experience of cooking from deciding on a menu to shopping for ingredients to the actual preparation of the dish. I don't ritualize it but I thoroughly enjoy the process. I do love to cook for others but I have realized that I will not cook for people I don't like.
Even when I am cooking for myself, it is an act of love. I always helping my mom in the kitchen, so I see cooking and eating as an enjoyable and health-affirming activity, one by which I could literally and figuratively nourish myself. It's a creative outlet, and I enjoy the process.
But for me the whole point is the nourishment the end result gives. I feel satisfied when people enjoyed food that I cooked. Even if I just make a toasted sandwich, but sharing it with someone who really appreciates the effort, now that is delicious. It pleases me to feed people food that pleases them.
I have to confess that I enjoy the compliments I get. Haha.
