You know, I always believe that however/whatever a child turns out, it is all the parent’s fault or credit. All the little subtle things we parents did or didn’t do all contribute to how/what they become as adults.
Take for example, we love durians. And our kids too HAVE to at least tolerate durians. There is no way they can run away from it. From as young as three months old, both of us crazy parents had stuff durians into our babies. Parents, don’t try it at all. It can cause fever and allergies. Hehehe, don’t say I never tell you so.
We would smear durians on our finger and let the babies sucked on it. Yummm….we know they inherited our good genes when they went ‘choop, choop, choop’ without cringing or puking. Or getting sick after that. Hmmm..come to think of it, I think the first solid food we introduced was durians.
This is our family tradition during durian seasons. You can see a similar post dated Nov. 11th, 2004 about durian rice. Hmmmmm…*licking four fingers and one thumb* You need to eat durian rice with your hands because there is nothing like mashing those pulps and mixing it with the santan and brown sugar. Then, splattered the lump into your mouth.
If you think this is pukey, you should see my atm pouring curry over it. Now, that is icky! Only he alone eat durian that way. With rice and curry. Uwek.
