About 17 years ago, 1 of my favorite lecturers told me (including my classmates),
"Never pamper your husbands. Don't make a habit to cook for them everyday.."
Sounds weird huh! It was an advice from a female lecturer and the advice was originally from her father! I know I'm cracking your head. Some of you could have said,
"it's is a detrimental advice indeed"
Of course, she elaborated long enough to us. According to her, if a wife always cook for her husband (4 course in a day - breakfast, lunch, tea and supper), the husband would expect to eat a homecook meal everyday!
It will be okay perhaps for the first few months of marriage (everything is green - love is all around). The wife is eager to try all new recipes to feed her hungry husband (literally and physically hahahah!!!).
What will happen after that? Everyone will get tired doing the same thing everyday. The wife is getting tired of cooking (plus she may be pregnant and having those morning sickness syndrome). The recipe may be repeated. Husband may get bored eating the same thing since he may be expecting for a new recipe everyday. Can a woman do that? Do wonders I mean? I don't know, you have the answer :)
How to avoid the problem to even exist? Never cook? No!! Don't ever do that.. air tangan isteri is always the best. Instead, cook for him only once in a while - whenever you like. The most important thing is, give a message to your (my) husband that you (I) are not gonna cook for him 4 times a day and 7 days a week.
Make him feel special when eating your homecook. Also, indirectly tell him that you're not a
Anyway, it will be different if the wife is not working and ever willing to cook. Again, it's still up to the wife. Like myself, I have a few days in a week that I didn't feel like cooking. Hey! I'm tired too... hehehe...
After finish writing about this, I'm not sure if this actually seems to be a good advice ;)
