I try to make my own Mpek Mpek Most of my friends who know me realoze that I can't cook well However, I try to cook the food that my kids love. So I try to make my own Mpek Mpek for my kids. And I can say that is easy BUT need a big energy to make it. I have to apart the fish from its skin and meat. This is the worst part cause takes time and energy to do it. Then I have to melt down the fish then roll it with sagoo and water. After that I boil the roll Mpek mpek. The process feels like never ending.. Okay..i give up..i would beter to buy it than to make it on my own..hehe

Lol, well practice makes perfect....but either way buying it doesn't sound like a bad idea. I've never had or heard of Mpek Mpek but it sounds interesting though I don't eat a lot of fish. I cook sometimes but in terms of what I do not like to cook for myself I'd have to say Chinese food just because I have little knowledge on they way that it is prepared. One of these days perhaps I'll take a cooking class and learn how to make good Chinese food because its one of my favorites.

Cooking is sometimes spend. Moreover, to make food that requires a lengthy process. But, I'd love to make my own, if I have the tools, and materials are sufficient. But, if I do not have the tools, and materials are sufficient, I choose to buy. Sometimes, the money we spend, the more if we cook ourselves, than if we bought.

I do agree with you Indah not only spend more money..but also energy and sometimes if the taste is not that delicious then I just throw it to garbage that could be wasting food too

Yes. Sometimes, the food we cook, it was not as good as when we buy. But, if my cooking, taste not good, I would not throw it away. I still will eat my cooking.

Aw that is so sweet of you You know I always love when moms good delicacies for their kids and family. Even mine... she loves to cook for the family. I have picked up the love for cooking food from my family. Though I dont love cooking only for myself (you know I am all alone these days and almost always cook only for me) but then, I can offer you some services... How bout you hire me as a cook for your family? The only catch - I will cook only what I love to eat but trust me that will be delicious and somewhat healthy... (I love chocos, cakes, chicken, cold coffee... and you can add more of the Cs here)

Dont worry for their dental care. I will ensure that they bush twice and also at least once per day with those Neem Plant Twigs... oh wait... that neem plant is called - Azadirachta indica - that is the scientific name for that plant and here is some great info about its health properties - http://www.bitterrootrestoration.com/dental-care/benefits-of-neem-for-dental-care.html

I like to cook. However, there are a few things that I do like better when someone else makes them. For instances, flourless chocolate cake is something that I don't think that I would be too quick to volunteer to tackle--and I really don't have to, since I can get wonderful flourless chocolate cake around here. There are a few other dishes that just taste so much better when I am dressed nicely, seated in a nice restaurant and having it brought to me. Okay, so a lot of it has more to do with the experience than me not being able to make a comparable dish. It is sometimes just nice to kick back and be waited on rather than waiting on everyone else.

I am not a very good cook, so I will admit that I have been buying most things ready made rather than making them myself. In addition to this, I have a lot of work on at the moment and this is meaning that I just don't get the chance to be able to cook for the whole of the afternoon like I might have done when I wasn't all that busy. So I hope that I will be able to cook properly in the future, but sadly this isn't something that I am really able to do properly at the moment just because of the fact that I don't have the time to do so.
