Lunch for Papa on Sundays

Me and my youngest brother take turns sending lunch to our papa on every Sundays.  These 2 months is my turn..our papa is a very complacent person, hardly complain even when he is not pleased on how things happening around him.  He eats what we serve him, he will only give his comments when we ask whether the food is alright, most of the time he would just say "Okay".

We know his favourite dish is roasted pork but we can't be giving roasted pork rice every Sundays, so I try to vary the choices base on my preferences over his favourite. I would usually snap a photo of the lunch that I serve our papa and whatsapp to my siblings letting them know what he is having for lunch.  I would squeeze half a lemon for him to clear the oily meal if I find lemon in the fridge (thanks SIL for buying the lemon :D)..he would complain sour because I only put a small pinch of salt (try to avoid sugar) into the lemon juice.  He would drink it even it's very sour.
toasted pork, char siew rice with a bit of salted egg and salted fish.
fried rice with tauhu pork and chun ken (meat rolled with egg).

last week I prepared home cooked food for him, Chinese sausage omelette, sauteed broccoli and carrot with pork...my papa is  turning 79 years old this week.

  1. He only has one type of fav food? Roasted pork just once a week doesn't sound that bad... it's not every day. :)

  3. You are such a good and filial daughter. Your papa must be happy and blessed to have caring children.

    When I went on my rounds to feed the homeless people, I felt sad that they have no family and the comfort of a home except a piece of cardboard as bed.

  10. Elderly people like roasted pork, I notice.. I think it brings back old sweet memories.. My mom also liked it a lot last time, even on the last day of her life, she brightened up whenever we talked about roasted pork...
