Does this sound familiar?

This was forwarded to me from Bel, and I thought I'd share this funny note from her. Not an ounce of truth in it at all, right ladies? For those of you that read chinese, I had edited the english portion a little and intentionally omitted some parts that I think is good to be 'lost in translation.'

随便 (Whatever)

男:今天 晚上咱们吃什么?

Man: What are we having for dinner?

女:随便。

Woman: Whatever..

男:吃火锅吧。

Man: Why don't we have steamboat?


女:不行,吃火锅脸上要长痘痘。

Woman: Don't want steamboat


男:要不咱们吃川菜。

Man: Alright, why not we have Si Chuan cuisine


女:昨天刚吃的川菜,今天又吃 .......

Woman: Just had that yesterday


男:那咱们吃海鲜去?

Men: Hmm..... I suggest we have seafood


女:海鲜不好,吃了拉肚子。

Women: Don't want seafood


男:那你说吃什么?

Men: Then what you suggest?


女:随便。

Women : Whatever..


Funny thing is I always know what I want for dinner, but the family don't necessary agree with my choices...

Hahaha, do you think this is typical of women?
If it is, then I must be the odd one out. I have no problems suggesting what to eat. Food, any food will do! :))

For me, whatever I suggested most of the times he would say no. So ended out now I always answered whatever because eventually he will go to the place he wanted to eat! Thus, I really don't see a point of asking me, but yet he will ask.

Hahhaha...I think that woman is looking for a dish by the name of "随便" ....tt's why all the other suggestions do not appeal to her.

THIS IS TYPICAL OF MY HUSBAND!! Coincidentally, it just happened before I read this post. I asked him what he wanted for lunch just now.
Me : So Mian? (cold mee suah eaten by Japanese)
Hubby: No,if you are going to use the leftover so mian from yesterday.
Me: How about onigiri? (triangle rice cake filled with bits of salmon)
Hubby: No, don't want that.
Me: Then ochazuke? (rice with salmon, pickled plum and green tea pour over it)
Hubby : No. Don't feel like eating anything.
So in the end, I cooked hot mee suah (Chinese style using the leftover mee suah from yesterday). Guess what? He ate it up! Wasted my energy asking him what he wanted to eat. My hubby doesn't take leftover food unless it is his favorite. So my son and I are the "ricebin" (pooi tang)!
