You Know You're Sri Lankan

When you live on your own (mostly), you unpack your stuff and discover that you're the proud owner of three rice cookers.

RD RD RD! :D and you realized this only now?

niroshinie said...

In our house ( that has just 4 occupants) the number of rice cookers outnumber the number of ppl living in it. Haha!
Bt can't deny they're damn useful if ure giving an alms giving or a party tho!

RD, you are going to love this.

My mother at one point had 6 rice cookers and I sat her down and asked her one day why she needs so many.

After her explanation, needless to say I do not help her organize the kitchen anymore.

These are her explanations and not mine.

2 large rice cookers are used for the alms giving. These are essential as giving alms to the temple is a monthly affair. And no, one rice cooker cannot be used twice as they are also used as containers to transport the rice and to keep them warm till the very last minute. As these are used for the alms giving she cannot use them for ANY OTHER purpose.

Need I go on about the other 4 ?

very briefly,

1 small cooker - just the right size when there is just the two of them at home.

2 medium sized ones are when they entertain and more quantity is needed.

1 medium sized rice cooker is the backup in case any of the other break . She actually did use the word EMERGENCY !!!!!!!


She is 70 years of age.

Half her age and my goal in life is never, ever to buy a single rice cooker ever.

They are like tattoos, you simply cannot stop at one !!!!

How do I cook rice ?
I cook it in a pyrex dish in the microwave or on a pan on the stove.

OzCuz said...

4?! I thought two was bad enough haha

Ours (two) came from Japan. A brainy one for home and a tiny one for camping that works from the car lighter power!

Sabby said...

YES! Mother dearest has five! I asked her WHY in the world she has FIVE and then she goes...'well, one, I use...and the other one is for you' ... that still doesn't explain the remaining three =S

Can you somehow incorporate a couple of them into your drum system? And call it something cool like 'fusion' music perhaps?

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

Bimal - That's the best idea so far. Like drum 'n' bass, just drum 'n' rice. Cool!
