East vs West: Dinner

The first time my mum has roast chicken at our home here in Kuala Lumpur....

Me:  Okay everybody!  Dinner is almost ready!
Mum:  Let me help you.
Me:  Okay, just help me put the chicken outside while I finish the gravy.

(A little later...)
Me:  Dinner is served!  Roast chicken! Come and get it!

(My mum wanders up and looks at the food on offer - roast chicken, roast potatoes, steamed veg)
Mum:  (genuinely surprised)  Where's the rice?
