Not using the stovetop in my condo

in esteem •  5 months ago  (edited)


I have not been cooking in this condo and probably won't for some time to come. There are quite a number of reasons:

  • The vent is disgustingly dirty and drips old grease onto the food if it is not covered. I do not feel like bringing this up to my landlord since my rent is always late and is late now. I prefer he forget about me as much as he can.
  • There is no gas now and I would need to call to get some and pay for it. Then that amount would come off of my rent, but I still do not want to do it. I'm not good on a phone at the best of times, and the person on the other end will not likely speak good English anyway.
  • The food I can buy off the street and in local Kuala Lumpur restaurants is very cheap and good. Buying food to cook would be of similar cost if not more.
  • I have not cooked in so long that I do not have the proper implements, spices and other ingredients and it's not convenient to get them.
  • I am still very sick with edema and do not feel like standing and cooking when I need to save my strength to post on steem and do other tasks to earn money and take care of myself.

So, I just look at the stovetop as I pass by on the way to do laundry and think of how much I might like something to eat that only I can cook. But more often, I do not think of cooking at all.

My post today is for the #freewrite daily challenge by @mariannewest with the prompt word of "stovetop." Give it a try and surprise yourself.

The photo for this post was taken with my HMNOTE 1LTE mobile phone. It's a griddle full of roti cooking at a breakfast place my friend took me to a few months ago. Roti is a fried bread somewhat like a croissant in texture. This roti was excellent and I would love to have it again.

I'm very sorry that you cannot cook properly for yourself. I know that once in awhile I just really want to have my own food. It's good that the spring food is inexpensive for you. My thoughts and prayers are with you this holiday season.

I am glad the food in the restaurants is affordable for you. Sometimes I think it would be nice to not have to cook, but I suppose I would miss it after a while.
