As a requirement for his new health insurance, hubby has to have regular check-up. Although some people may prefer insurance that doesn't required regular check up, he happily picked one that does. Usually, we had our health checked up everytime we went home. But, we haven't been home in almost 2 years and still have no plan to do so. Therefore, he feels grateful that he will know his health condition regularly, so we can make changes to make it better.
Last week was his first check up. The result was pretty good, although there are things that need to be paid attention to make him healthier. One thing I can't understand is, (for some cases) he seems to trust books that he read or physicians than his wife. Now he believes me that brown rice is better than white rice, and he is willing to have it in alternate with white rice. He is a jasmine rice lover, so he wasn't happy when I cooked brown rice. I am happy with his follow up after his health check up. For instance, he voluntarily brought 2 tangerines to work yesterday, something we wouldn't do before
Having healthy food here is more expensive than having non healthy ones, which is the opposite of the situation in my country. Vegetables, tofu, and tempeh are inexpensive, in contrast with meat, frozen food, and junk food's price.
Hubby and I don't always like the same things. He doesn't like as many fruit as I do. Sometimes we scoop down food we don't like to our belly just because it is healthy. But one thing I know, we both love...loveee...seafood. Having fish for dinner is a special dinner date for us. Making it is actually so easy, but we can't do it very often. First, because getting fishes here isn't as easy as getting fishes in my country. Second, because I don't want to have it on weekdays. We bring leftover food for lunch the next day, and I am afraid the fishy smell with bother my classmates.
