"Hi. I wonder how does the broccoli taste like? Does it taste exactly like cauliflower?"
"Oooo ini broccoli haa?"
"Ye ye itu broccoli. Eh."
"Quite the same la like cauliflower. But not exactly the same."
"How to cook this broccoli, Aunty?
"Senang punya! First of all, you kena blanch ini broccoli so that dia lembut."
"Then, you goreng macam goreng sayur campur la. Simple as that. It's not a rocket science."
There was a pak cik there who's interested to buy the broccoli but I can tell that he didn't have any idea how too cook it, I believe. He took the broccoli, then he put it down as if he took a dented milk can. A minute later, he took it back. He looked at my mum and the aunty who taught my mum to cook the broccoli before and he asked "Broccoli ni macam mana nak masak?" That's it. The conversation between the three of them went on for quite awhile. To be honest, if I were a stranger, I would say that they are best friends or neighbours or something who shop for groceries together. Oh, and learn to cook the broccoli together. I bet, when I ask my mum what's for lunch right after I'm back from school tomorrow , she will be like, "Broccoli!!!!!"
