Today is Wednesday. It has been fourteen days since I survive on grass, plants, leaves, roots and beans. I am getting annoying because I will chew off parts of the foods and stuffed the balance into my #1 son’s mouth. Just today, I chewed the crispy parts of the wantan which is made of flour and stuffed the middle part of the meat into his mouth.
My dear hubby is having fun tempting me. While having dinner, he ordered a plate of Indian curried rice with catfish (my absolutely to die for fish) curry, squids filled with eggs and some other stuffs. At first, he offered me a spoonful of the rice which he told me the curry tasted great. So, I opened my mouth and ate it. Then, he took a piece of the catfish and told me how ‘lemak’ (tasty?) it is and selamba aje offered to me again.
I gave him a killer stare. Knowing that I love, love, love catfish and its slimey skin, he took it off, pretend to spoonfeed me. Then, he looked up the sky and called out, “Hey, Jesus, see…there’s a church there.” And then, he said to me, “Faster faster, Jesus is not looking. Eat lah, God not looking.”
Tiu lor…you say torturing or not? That’s not the end of it. My toddler sometimes chewed off part of his food but he will put them into my mouth because the piece is too big. It is my mother’s instinct to just open the mouth like a rubbish bin and swallowed everything. So, the other day he was having this crispy, yummy, tasty original Kentucky Fried Chicken. He took a piece and offered to me. Absent-mindedly, I opened my mouth and well, since it is in my mouth, I won’t be so crazy to spit it out, ok? That is food. Millions of people are starving. Millions never eat any KFC before. So, I ate it. And my two other sons screamed, “MOM!!!! You sudah batal puasa!!!!”
Haih….sometimes I wonder which part of my sadist side is working? The saintly one or the devilish side? No one ask me to go on vegetarian diet. My Catholic faith doesn’t demand it. But die-die I also want to achieve it. I am going to do this just for a few more weeks. Even if I have to whine over it every single week on my blog.
Good Friday is on April 6th. How should I celebrate my buka puasa? Char koay teow with extra si-ham and huge prawns? And yeah, don’t bother to tell me to stop whining already. It is my blog and I want to whine, can?
