The actress brushes up on her culinary skills on her off days.
With the COVID-19 infections rising in Hong Kong, many have been forced to make major adjustments to their lifestyles. Priscilla Wong (黃翠如), for one has been working hard on improving her cooking skills to prepare hearty meals for husband Edwin Siu (蕭正楠).
Picking Up the Ropes of Being a “Housewife”
Attending a promotional activity for TVB drama Ratman to the Rescue <過街英雄> in which she stars alongside Sammy Leung (森美), Priscilla shared that she spends her free time outside of work in the kitchen.
The 38-year-old, who tied the knot in 2019, said, “During my time off from filming, I’d go to the market to get ingredients, and will get a few days’ worth at once. Although many women know to cook, it is still a learning experience for me.” Revealing her unfamiliarity during her first trip to the market, Priscilla shared that she had overpaid for a bunch of cilantro. She added that she had not known that cilantro came without a plastic bag, so she had waited foolishly at the stall waiting for the owner to pass one to her. “I was once admonished for waiting for a bag, these housewife skills need to be acquired slowly!” she enthused.
Edwin Doesn’t Offer Praise, But Habitually Finishes Everything
Asked if she has prepared any “hellish meals” for husband Edwin, Priscilla replied candidly, “He has never praised what I’ve cooked. The only food he’s complemented me on was the turnip cake I made for Lunar New Year–actually there’s no complicated techniques involved, just that the cooking requires a bit more oil and [the cake] should be fried slowly.”
While Edwin does not complain about Priscilla’s cooking, he has never offered his praise either. Asked if he would finish everything served, she replied, “He is very environmentally conscious–there was once when we had a quarter of the turnip cake left. Despite both of us being full to the brim, he’d finish everything up.”
