When we go to Ikea, Gooly goes to the play area. But sometimes the place is deserted or it's jam packed with kids. And then we will abandon the idea of playing there and proceed...
..to the kids' furniture area.
..where he always..always..always...play with the kiddy kitchen cabinet.
Ooooh.... the joy he has when he plays Restaurant City where he is the Chef, maitre' D and cashier.
I am always the customer naturally which I don't mind, really.
I order sushi, siew mai, ckt, coffee, ice kacang and such.
I like the siew mai he makes cos he adds meat with a dash of pepper and salt and carefully wrap them up and steam them. (I don't know how he knows the recipe.)
And then he always give great offers like free coffee.
And the price is darn cheap. It's always 1 cent for the whole meal. *grins*
And the service is quick and good. I hear "Thank you and please come again!" everytime I pay.
Even the name of the establishment is catchy - Ching Chong Ching Restaurant.
I am so tempted to buy him that cabinet. But it's so expensive!!
Anyways, for conversation sake, I asked him, "What if people tease you saying that cooking is for girls?" (True enough cos that's what my sister told him.)
He looked up the ceiling and pondered.
"I won't care!" he shrugged.
Attaboy! Good to hear that! Now gimme the hammer and nails, I will just construct the whole cabinet for you..
Right here.. in this house of NO gender stereotyping!
(Ok, before that.. where to get papan?)
