Food Ya Padres: THAI GREEN CURRY (Chai've been cooking )

So my mum left for Philippines sometime last week leaving my father (padres) and I on our lonesome. In that time I haven't always had the pleasure of staying at home and keeping him constant company... so instead I've been cooking him really nice food in attempts to compensate for my lacking presence.

Though I do regret not being able to spend as much time with my dad as i'd like, I'm happy that I can still leave him something to show him my appreciation and something that can help to fill the void left by my mothers absence... or at least fill his stomach.

Food is a very powerful thing. You can really show love through food =)
My madres does it for my padres all the time...
Even though he has like you know, typical, older generation, asian dietary issues (high blood pressure, etc.) my madres still likes to show her love to him by feeding him his favourite foods (pork crackling, high salt content stuff, baklava, really buttery stuff -_-")
You name it... If it's bad for you... he'll like it... Of course she doesn't let him indulge all the time. But in those moments that she wants him to remember how much she cares, she makes food extra special.

He's been taking it kinda tough since she left.. he really misses her. And I know he really like curries and coconut creamy stuff and chilli... so I made this especially for him.

Love ya padres!
Food is Love.
