Most of the time, we love to be served. We prepare to pay the sky and demand to be served like a king. "How I wish when I open my eye in the morning, breakfast is ready to feed." I used to hear this often. I also came across a phrase in a cooking program: "If you can cook a hot breakfast for her after the night, you will have her heart for life."
But sometimes, we like to do it ourselves. The one who cook breakfast not necessary the one who is giving. And the one who is eating not necessary is the receiver.
"Do it yourself" let us have the ownership. We will joy for the creation and result off our hands. We cannot complain neither if it end up belongs to the drains.
A DIY afternoon for Popiah. A happy afternoon for all.
Somewhere end of last year when I went back to hometown, aunty prepared us popiah DIY style. Its easy for her not to crack her head for the dinner dishes and fun for us to have it our way. Picture showing cooked vegetables like sengkuang, tauge, egg slice, etc on the table. It took hours to prepare those, waiting each of us to give a final touch for our own food.
Tauge is sweet and give the crunchy bite to the popiah.
