I Want To Learn To Eat Spicy Food


The other day, when I was having a bowl of curry mee, my boy asked if he could take a sip of the curry soup.  I was surprised by his request as he would not eat by all means the moment he sensed slighest taste of spiciness in the food.  No exceptions.. 

Ian: Mommy, can I have a sip of the spicy soup? *He got himself a cup of water to stand by before the request*;)

Mommy:  Sure. *Though a bit surprised, I obliged to his request,  I can see his eyes turn a bit red after the sip*  

Ian:   It tastes yummy but hot! *quickly gulps down the cup of water on stand by*

Mommy: *evil grins* Do you want another sip?

Ian: No, thanks.  Maybe next time.

Mommy:  Why did you suddenly want to taste spicy food?

Ian:  I want to learn to eat spicy.  I saw Aaron (his buddy in school) eating a curry bun and he told me it was yummy.

Mommy:  *Nods her head in acknowledgment and takes his boy's kiasu (afraid to lose) attitude positively*. Yeah, boy. I will put some into your mouth everytime I eat spicy food and you learn to eat spicy food slowly, ok, boy?

Ian : Ok, mommy *Giving me a big and cheeky smile*

lol! Your Ian is same like my April. April also cannot take spicy food, a bit also cannot. But my little May can eat spicy food. I hope one day April also is willing to try out a bit of spicy food just like Ian.

Ya...Rome was not built in one day. I only learnt to eat spicy food when I was already past my teens.

P.S. Thanks for dropping by my blog.

Sheoh Yan: It also took some time before I could take spicy.;)

LilHyppo's Mummy: He says just in case.:P

Shenny's Mommy: I have added you too. Guess most kids have to slowly adapt to the taste.

Caroline: I observe most Sabahans can't take spicy, me being one of them.;) I only acquired the taste after coming here. No choice.. Here everywhere is spicy food..

Suituapui: Hi, thanks for adding me.;)Past teens! Mine was when I was in my 20's. Hehehe..
