Random fact #2

I'm 16 and I still don't know how to cook. Should I be ashamed of myself?

I know for sure that if I went to my 'old country' , they'd look at me with disgust and say: 'Shame! Astaghfirullah! *spits on floor* what will you do when you get married? WHO will marry you! Shame...! I bet she can't even make tea!'

Yeah, well, I know how to make tea alhamdulillah. (I think. It's been a while) I don't know what's stoppping me from cooking though. I guess I've never really wanted to do it until I'm 18 or something (my mom has been reminding me constantly saying : ' Today I'm gonna teach you how to cook.', but then I'd leave the room lol).

InshaAllah, I'll learn to cook someday, maybe even during the summer, Allahu 'Alem. :)


@Little Auntie- Wa 'alaykumu salaam sis! :D I've read your comment but unfortunatly with my sucky internet connection, I can't answer to it via comment. :/ I can't really comment on any blog actually. :( But yes, it is nice and alhamdulillah, I feel like I'm more sincere and real this way instead of feeling like I'm putting up a show for my friends when they are reading ( does that make sense? :)) Wasalaam. xx

LOL, this was cute!
I was the same as you...but mumzy then started the 'disappearing in the middle of cooking- you take over- act', so I had to kinda learn.' :)

I think Egyptian cooking though is pretty darn easy. It's all 'onions, garlic, tomato sauce, salt, a little bit of oil'...that's pretty much the 'recipe for everything'....LOL.

p.s. I think u're right about the sincerity part <3

Salam aleikum sister,
I just wanted to let you know that I am nearly 30 and still don't know how to cook :). Well, I can handle basic meals but nothing more complicated actually. Nobody taught me as my mother obviously thought I could somhow learn it from mothing, without needing to spend time in kitchen :S. Alhamdulillah, I still managed to find good husband who has cooked for me LOL. So, don't worry sister, things will surely manage out for you as well, insha Allah.

Asalaamu 'alaykum ladies!

@Little Auntie- Lol, smart move on your mom. ;) Hmm, I think I'll start with egyptian first then, lol. :P

@Nadia- Loll, so cool that your husband can cook for you, mashaAllah. :) I don't know what's considered 'basic food' (I can make cereal and sandwiches :/) but all that will be changing again this year because this time, my mom wants me to cook. -_-' InshaAllah, things do manage out for me. :)
