The rain has been lashing and mum's antics has been lashing me well. Goodness gracious!! Who ever said taking care of the elderly unwell parents is easy. It is not! I know and sure, I shouldn't complain because its the birth right of mum. But trust me, if not all, some days I am helpless. I don't know what will keep her happy since there's more cannot than anything else. Hopefully we both can pull through together. Anyway, this chicken soup (fish ball noodle soup, tomato vegetable soup, dhal vegetable soup, Asian green pea soup, Japanese radish soup, potato bok choy soup and Chinese chicken soup) with spices and all things nice as she took the first few sips, she said not tasty but after I told her its her recipe, wahhh!!
