Hobby means one special passing time when s/he not only spends time but also reduces some mental dissatisfaction. Since I am a glutton my favorite hobby is easily identified. Yes, it is cooking, and I am a gastronome. There is a story about this thing becoming my hobby.
My father and mother are government employees, and I am the eldest child. They were very busy in their office and I passed my time alone at home. You know it’s very hard for a 6-year-old Bangladeshi girl to live in the house when most of the time there is no one around. There is a proverb ‘An idle brain is the devil's workshop’, and I was lazy enough.
I didn’t like to spend my time like this and so, I decided to do something new. Alone in the whole home, I moved from my room to room. I found the kitchen very much interesting. That was the first time I tried to make some food. I took some flour and water and wanted to make some bread. I somehow managed to make the primary mixing as I had noticed before how my mom did it. It was very exciting. I felt so happy, but I had to do more. Fortunately, there was a roti-maker in my house and I somehow managed to bake the bread. After testing, I realized I forgot to add salt! It was a good attempt after all. Then I started cooking.
Every day when my parents were gone out I went to the kitchen and tried to make different types of items. It was not easy to hide this activity from my mother, but I somehow managed it. It’s really a funny fact that if you cook with enjoyment, you will not feel how time flies away. Actually, I have read an article that people can find pleasure in the kitchen if they can concentrate and so any depression vanishes. It is damn true. I can assure you.
