Family comes first

Anyone of you seen family movies like "Click"? Movies like these usually emphasizes how important it is to appreciate members of your family, especially your parents or grandparents. I was watching another movie today about two man who didn't really cherish their parents and grandparents. It's only when they finally realize that they had lost them, then they start to regret things.

My parents had been working hard all their lives for me and my siblings to have a good and fruitful life. Sometimes, all I could ever think of was about myself that I tend to not spend enough time with my parents. To that, I just want to say, I love my parents and am very grateful for all the things they had done for me. Cherish the people that are close to you, especially your parents.

Today's recipe is a great recipe you can make for your family. Here's a nice thai style curry and all you have to do is cook rice and serve it with this wholesome curry that's exotic yet easy to make.
