jin loves to eat at home, May 2-9, 2010

Exactly 8 hours after I posted my first entry of the jin loves to eat at home series, my mom calls me on my mobile, sounding all panicky and petrified, and jabbers at me in a shrill voice, “I bumped into your Auntie Kiddie just now and she said she saw pictures of my cooking on Auntie Baby’s computer. What is she talking about??? Did you put pictures of my cooking on the internet????? WHY did you do that?!?!? Isn’t the internet PUBLIC??? What pictures did you post and what did you write??? It’s EMBARASSING!!! My cooking looks HORRIBLE!!! Can everybody see them??? Do NOT let anyone see them!!!!!”

I use my I’m-an-adult-now-I-know-what-I’m-doing-you-can-trust-me voice and assure her that nobody can see anything unless I specifically email them, and I mention something about passwords, encryption, IP security, etc., etc... The more technical jargon you throw at her, the more secure she feels.

So ATTENTION EVERYBODY WHO KNOWS MY MOM: You are NOT seeing these photos, understand?

And on this very day when all mothers all over the world should just sit back, relax, go to the spa, shop without limit, be pampered and be spoilt rotten by their already grown up children, my mother lets me sleep until past noon, peeking in quietly every now and then to check if I am already awake, so she can prepare my lunch and serve it to me in the comfort of my room.

If I could be just half as great a mother as my mom is to us, my children would be the luckiest in the world.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! I love you. ♥
