I had been telling my #1 son to stay far-far away from me because his wounds look exactly like the bak kua or Chinese BBQ minced pork which is red in colour.
But the more I geli (feeling pukey) the more he loves to torment me. Last night, both of us were sitting down for supper. I was eating or-kueh or yam cake. He put his elbow on the dining table and I shooed him away.
“Uwekkkk….get that elbow off my views. I cannot eat looking at your bak-kua.”
You know what he did? He put the bloody elbow nearer and asked me if I need more chili sauce. Puke, puke, puke.
“Want more chili sauce, I squeeze some for you?”
Anyway, the wounds are minor, i.e. no deep gash but my boy asked me what to avoid eating to prevent getting keloids. My answer is – Don’t freaking ride so fast and crash and get so many wounds!
Of course, I am not such a cruel mom. I don’t think there is anything we can do to avoid keloids because it is pretty genetic. Either you get it or you don’t. Alternative, a plastic surgeon can give injections for better scar recovery. Last time, one of the plastic surgeon gave me a few shots and the scars on my boobies are hardly noticeable. And no, I didn’t have a boob job. It was a breast biopsy, ok?
Again, what did your mom asked you not to eat so you don’t get unsightly scars? I don’t believe all those mumbo-jumbos like no dark soya sauce or black coffee. Do you?
