What Did You Do On Mother’s Day?

My 81 year-old mum is one of the most cosmopolitan mothers around. She loves to eat & enjoys any cuisine. Other than Asian food, she doesn’t mind exploring western dishes like Fish & Chips, Steaks, Deli etc. But most Asian mothers in her generation do not quite appreciate western food. Unless your mother has migrated to Australia, US or Europe etc, most would stick to their Asian diet.

This Mother’s Day, I’d prepared a simple 3-course western lunch for mummy dearest:
Creamy Pumpkin Soup with Crab Claw
(Featured @ PtitChef as a Starter)

(Featured @ Specialty Produce, San Diego's Food Dist)

Fruit Kebabs for dessert

After a hearty meal with my family, a surprise was installed for the mothers...

... a 1½ hour foot/shoulder massage for mum & myself in the comfort of our home. Loy, the masseur, came highly recommended by a close friend of mine. There’s nothing better than a massage after a busy day in the kitchen.

So how did you celebrate Mother’s Day? Share your story with us here & let us enjoy reading them. Oh, do stay tuned for the above recipes….. Happy Mother’s Day!
