Why Women Cannot Cook? By Sam Holden

Posted on November 8, 2007. Filed under: Motherhood | Tags: , , , |

 I think he is only referring to the women in UK only.  In Asia , most women do the cooking’s and they can cook very well. Most mothers can cook mouth watering dishes .

We will always remember our mothers favourite cooking’s.I like Chinese cuisines ,Malay cooking’s and Indian curries. I take Western food sometimes but not often.

Most Asian men do not cook but allow their wives to do most of the cooking.Though all those great and  famous chef are men, it is usually the womenfolks  who cook in most households.Actually , both men and women are adept at cooking. It is a matter of interest only.

Most young girls do not have any inclinations to cook  until they get married and then take an interest in cooking. Their mother cooks for them when they are around and they may only help  with the washing ups. 

Cooking is a skill and an art or  someone call it a science.. I love my sister’s curry . Whenever she cooks her favourite chicken curry,I would eat three big plates of rice…LOL!

Food is the way to a man’s heart as a wise saying goes. If a women can cook one great and tasty dish , just one dish is enough to satisfy a man.Through many trial and errors, she will fine tuned her dish to perfection.

During our mother’s time , they learn the secret of cooking from their mothers , passed down through the generations. My favourite food is Chinese cuisines, very nutritious and wholesome.Home cooking is best!

Breast Feeding Can Cause Sagging-No Way!

Posted on November 7, 2007. Filed under: Motherhood | Tags: , , |

This is a myth which has been exposed by a new study by scientist. Many women believed that breast feeding would make their breast sag and as such many were afraid to breastfeed their babies inorder to preserve their figures. This is selfish and not thinking of the baby ‘s priorities. Why do they want babies when they cannot give their best to them? 

Only aging and smoking will make the breast sag. The pull of gravity  as we grow older is an inevitable conclusion which we must accept unless you have plenty of money to go for a breast operation  to keep maintaining them  in their unnatural state ..LOL!  Imagine every parts of you having loose aging  skins and drooping , but your breast is as firm as an 18 year old.What an absurd figure !

Smoking would make your breast sag faster and if you want a pert breast , you need to stop smoking and do some gym work to strengthened those pectoral muscles .

Smoking will also give you other related smoking sickness but I guess, smokers don’t care about their health  or they are going down the road of destruction. They cannot see what tomorrow will bring or they chose to ignore those danger signs.

Breastfeeding is good for your baby and there are many advantages of breastfeeding both for the mother and the baby.

Today’s post is about breastfeeding which will not sag your breast. The goodness of breastfeeding , that is another topic. Tomorrow , another new studies may say another thing.

First Time And First Year Mother’s Agony Of Joys

Posted on October 19, 2007. Filed under: Motherhood | Tags: , , , , |

That precious and monumental moment when you first set your eyes on your living jewel, everything else becomes inconsequential  and this new born child would be your new centre of universe. Your new sun will bring you agonies  as well as joys.

It is the culmination of all your dreams, aspirations and hope in your marriage and in your lifelong pursuits.

Now that you are there ,you savor the sweet success and basked in the limelight. You feel the supreme delight and the joy of being a first time mother.

Your joys know no bounds and you dote alot on your new addition in your family.Those great moments when you brought the baby home are forever cherished and etched into your hall of fame.

History was created and you became a mother after a long tortuous journey in your life .Welcome to the land of milk, honey and nappies and where the day is night and the night is day.

 Time never sleeps in this babyland.You only catch some forty winks here and there. To sleep for a normal 8 hours straight is a luxury. You will be like on a non stop emotional rollercoaster until the child grows up.

Being a first time mother is the most beautiful and joyous moments in your life but it is also the time when you feel withdrawn , lonely ,overworked ,stressful and your world seemed to be crumbling down.

You are cut off from your friends, colleagues, your relatives and work.Others think you are in your own cozy world ,not knowing that you are the loneliest person on the planet with only your baby to talk to.

You craved to have a human to human talk with another adult who could share what you are going through. Your husband does not understand or able to talk on a deeper level like you can with other women.

There is the in laws and your husband who may have different perceptions to taking care of the baby. There could be conflicts and where you cannot do anything except to follow.

This adds to your frustrations as much is expected from you and it always seemed that you are underperforming even when you give your all.It is a learning curve for you and others.

 This is the most trying times in your life and if you dont have a very understanding husband or in laws or your parents, your woes can increased many folds. You may have baby blues and depression acalling.

You entity ceased to exist anymore for you will be doing everything that will be related to your baby. You will learn a mother’s love and sacrifices and you come to appreciate what your mum did for you.

Even though you may feel like going down a slippery slope , you would not exchange your place for anything . This is priceless and you will never again experience it in this life.

As a women , you will find that you have a reason to exist and your life being fulfilled,career,marriage and  children.
