came home to see that wife had already cooked the rice and was starting on the curry.
she enthusiastically showed him his special plate of rice, molded in a heart shape.
the rice topped with curry - had potatoes, carry, milk, coconut milk, broccoli, diced chicken, mushroom, definitely not the usual curry, but still enjoyable. great effort.
finally, they sat down to make dessert, "xue mei niang" again. the same processes, with slightly different fillings of kiwi fruit and mango. took them quite a bit of time, but it was quality time spent together.
