Yesterday morning, I started to wash our clothes. It lasted until noon. It's a non-automatic washer I used *sigh. We have a paid worker to do our laundry once a week, it's so happen that she's not able to do it yesterday! Hubby do the cooking. Well it's just frying a fish, not that hard task for him huh. I usually do the cooking but since I have to wash our clothes, he had no choice but to help me cooked our lunch! We have left ribs sinigang the other day and we partnered it with that fried fish. Viola! What a great luched we had yesterday *LOL! Funny was, I let him fry! He's not used to it, but I find out until yesterday that for the sake of our family, he can do things he's not used to do to help me! Oh well, I know he will do anything for the sake of his family like every responsible person will do! Very much appreciated! Do you share task with your partner? Do you hear any words that he or she is hesitant to do it?

Uh uh! Missed him?! You know I pushed my husband to work overseas... He's limited only to Canada or Singapore *LOL... this is his only options! Because, we want to be with him anywhere... Sometimes before, he did the laundry, no second time!... He used excessive detergent and water and time huh! No no no no, not again. I'll just let him cook with my supervision *LOL

It is very interesting to me that your husband cooking fish for you once make you feel guilty that you told him do something that he is not supposed to do. In modern world, there is no jobs that are meant for men and others for woman. Life has changed drastically and furthermore, women are human beings who get tired too. It is good that you husband was able to help you in cooking. I do not tell my husband to do things for us but it is just natural that he does alot for us. I really cannot even be able to count the number of times my husband has cooked, put clothes in washing machine, served me with food or drinks, gone shopping for grocery, clothing and my beauty products like lotion. It seems just like normal thing for me. You make me appreciate my husband even more when I remember all what he does for me and my son.

Keep on spoling him and soon or later you will get him serve your food or snacks at the comfort of your chair. Good indeed to have such husbands.

You have a good husband. My husband will also share the housework with me. I think it is fair. We will wash the dishes in turn. But lately I will wash it more often since he has busy work. I hope he can have a break when he is home. I love China

Married or unmarried couples should help each other in chores if they are staying together. I have a girlfriend and we always do house chores together. Sometimes I wash the clothes and sometimes she will do it. At times, we wash clothes, cook meals and clean the house together. I believe every time I helped doing chores without letting her know, she was very happy about it. So people, do help your love in the house sometimes as I sincerely believe that he or she will be happy and appreciate it very much.

What a nice relationship you have with Adrian giffy! You know what, I quite envy you guys, most of you in the US uses automatic appliances that makes your chores that easy and instant unlike us here in average country. Well, those can afford to buy those automatic appliances can be well served here. But I tell you, it's not practical to have those here! Aside from it's expensive to buy... long-term it's also more expensive. I'm reffering to electricity bill *sigh. Really, a money matter gif!

hello Lhen, To be honest, I am not a good cook and I don't know how to cook either when I get married (duh) Thanks,my hus is a best cook- he loves to eat, so he likes cooking as well. His family is a bunch of great cook and I've learned all my cooking menu from them (hahaha) So,it takes time before he trusted the cooking for me
