Off the Microwave

For health reasons, I have decided to minimize the use of the microwave. There are trade-offs such as more washing of pots and pans but then again I think it would have positive effect on my health, or so I hope. I feel domesticated having to cook or recook food for myself but I’m glad I have this chance to do it on my own because I’m learning a lot about myself and learning to be more independent. These step changes will be good for my transition now that I’ll be working in a few month’s time then eventually settle? I can’t dictate the future but I do know I don’t want to stay at my parents’ forever for my own good. But then again this is me living in a condo right now. Things will definitely change once I go back home when I start working.

I hope I can experiment more next time. Every dish I make feels like a new masterpiece. It amuses me when I have so many ingredients to play with and mix together. This is me getting off the microwave! It can be done, so it shall be done.
