Sometimes coming home after work is a little surprise especially when hubby is not working.

Returning home tired, stressed out and all I just wish for is to grab a shower and rest. Walking into the house… opening the front door wishing it was just a swipe of thumb away instead of needing to search for my keys in my already messy compartment of the bag. Oh I don’t carry a handbag by the way, I carry a sling bag. Kind of prefer them over handbags because it is much more convenient haha.

So finally found the keys, removing my shoes after a long day… my feet deserve a good rest. Anticipating every minute of the day for the weekends to come faster so, that I can get my break for the week.
Walking towards the room, I hear sounds… sounds that make me wonder… what hubby is doing. Opening the room door, the air-condition breeze flows out to chill me, what a good feeling. The sight of what hubby is doing…

Playing game (what were you all thinking? Haha).

Went into the room drop my things, and grab my shower and the time to fill up the hungry stomach with simple dishes and rice for dinner cooked by hubs. Hubs made some special side dish.

I love the cup color. Looks cute. Time to open up and see the content.

Ta-da! It is chawanmushi! Amazingly, hubs made this… I totally don’t know how he does it, but it was delicious. I want more! Had two cups of that.

Thinking about it, I think I will have him make again soon haha!

The egg was smooth, the taste was yummy! When I put a spoon of the steamed egg into my mouth… hmmm it just melts away. Egg, shiitake mushroom, chicken meat, crabstick and bonito sauce are the basic ingredient in the making of chawanmushi.

Hubs is waaay better cook than me. Always best to make him cook instead of me cooking haha! Can the man in your house cook? Can the woman in your house cook? Can you cook? :p

Hi, I always love see women with sling bags.
Where I am we see quite often ladies with long hair, designer sling bags, Gypsy earrings....and Rayban sunglasses...they sure look sexy, ha ha.
Wow! You got a great hubby there! My compliments to him.
Best regards.
