Soooo, I have a confession.
I'm OCD when it comes to cooking.
A bit...
Well, a lot actually!
I have a routine going on.
And I'll go NUTS if this is not done.

First, I HAVE to clean the kitchen before I cook.
That includes wiping the counters and putting everything in place.
And oh, I make sure I hv a clean washing sink too
You ask why
when I'm gonna dirty the kitchen
again when I cook.
Don't ask...I just can't cook in
a dirty, unorganised kitchen.
Everything has to be clean and in place.

When everything is clean, the cooking starts.
However, when I cook, I like to be neat
and clean too.
That means, no accidental spills,
crumbs on the floor...
all this stuff will drive me CRAZY.
I'll have two kitchen towels on my counter
and IF...big IF
coz I'm anal about spilling stuff,
If I do spill something, I have to wipe and clean it
Yeah... OCD.... Anal.
When I stir, everything stays in the bowl.
When I scoop, I make sure I dont spill anything out.
When I cut and chop,
nothing falls on the floor.

That's why my hb doesnt help me to cook,
even tho he can cook
Its just that I can't stand the messiness
he creates.

He wud always remind me fm time to time that 
It's OK not to vacumn and mop the floor every single day
Err how to?? its like not taking shower twice a day! 
I know... I know..
I'm anal... BUT not as bad as
to separate things out into colors before I eat them
(and then eat them by colors)
like M&M, Skittles, etc...
