Siapa makan cabai, tolong beri petua. Very tame blog, donch worry. This is about parenting, not perli.
I was sweating over this plate of lunch. Indomie goreng, kari kapitan added with chili flakes, leftover chili paste from ta pau curry mee, chili lala from the can (Rex brand chili clams), artificial prawns (fish based) and some vege.
I recalled how my mom used to wash the curry chicken for me when I was small. She would take out the chicken, washed it with hot water and pour some soya sauce to flavour. I tried doing the same for my kids, hoping they would graduate to become chili kings like me. But they still can’t tahan the hot taste of chillies.
*sigh* Like my son here, he wanted to eat nasi lemak. But I would first have to separate out the white part of the rice for him. Then, he would need a can of 100Plus and an icecream to cool down. (Photo taken at Youth Park canteen. Nice Malay meehoon and nasi lemak.)
So, I wonder how do the Malay and Indian children get used to eat chillies? Are they born with a better tolerance for chillies? Like in their genes or something?
I am puzzled. My eldest son who was taken care by my mom till he was 6 years old can eat chili like a pro. But my other sons still cannot tolerate black pepper or even mild dalca curry. So, that means, I have done something not quite right somewhere. What is it?
