When i grow up..I want to be...

"What is it about cooking that makes you so happy??"

I was asked this question today. Not once but twice by two different individuals.
Honestly i do not know. It is not my profession and somehow i do not want to make it my profession either. But it just makes me happy. After a tiring or sad day its something that cheers me up. Makes me joyful. Even if my cake is not perfect or my chicken preparation is a wee bit too salty... the happiness of hearing the sound of onions being put in a hot wok or the aroma of garlic in butter.. the taste of fried prawns with parsley and lemon.. its just magical.
Yes cooking is my hobby. I can't paint or play an instrument to save my life. but yes i can cook and it makes me happy. I feel everybody should try cooking atleast once in their life.
To feel the joy of creating something soooo beautiful out of something so simple.
Fried Ice Cream with chocolate sauce
Oh, pure joy!
