I used to be that type of person who does not complain that much when it comes to food. I have no problem eating outside, take away food or never refuse to any offer to have home cooked meal, by any chance. I dont complain if the food is bad, I only take action by not coming to the same place, that is all. And once in a while, I indulged myself with a bit of fast food, chocolate, goreng pisang and the list goes on.
But now that I am expecting, things are totally different. On my 1st trimester, my appetite went haywire. Food does not sound good as it is before, but I still need to eat or I can become very sick. I can not let myself to be hungry. Being hungry is like the worst nightmare, because I dont want the incident that I puked in front of someone's door to happen again. My puke was a combination of sambal hijau, chicken, rice and air sirap. It was a colourful puke, just like nasi hujan panas. It was a disaster.
Now I am very fussy when it comes to food. I only take food which I think is yummy, hot, fresh and clean. Since I no longer cook, most of the time, we bought our food outside. In KLCC, I usually take away lunch from where every I feel like eating. Until one point I became sick of eating food outside, eating food in KLCC, eating food bought from any where near our house or whatsoever. Then I start to crave for home cooked meals. I suddenly craved for my mum's cooking. I asked her to cook my favourite udang and ketam masak lemak cili. I became bored of chicken, fish, vegetable I guess that was why I suddenly craved for udang and ketam. And her cooking is incomparable dengan masakan kat kedai ok. Tiba-tiba ada selera makan and I finish it all.
And today that I am feeling much better (maybe because I am done with LTPF), I actually cook lunch for my husband, after being away from the kitchen since October. And I am so glad that I got to enjoy yummy, hot, fresh and clean food of my own. I am not sure if I will be cooking again in future because it really depends on the my condition on that day. Suffice to say, I am so glad today that I had the opportunity to enjoy real food. So I guess at this point of time, I tend to agree with kata-kata makcik or orang tua yang masakan rumah jugak yang sedap. I dont know lah if I tend to become normal again, just like before after this, cume for the mean time, cam ni lah keadaan nye. Haha.I hope I will be fine until evening because I plan to do some shopping with husband afterwards. Happy New Year you ols!
