Have you ever given your Mom a gift and she just criticizes it? That's what my mom always ends up doing. She's gotten a tad better at saying thank you, but I think the reason Asian parents think showing love or gratitude to their children is that it shows weakness of their authority and it also makes their children lazy. So if your mom doesn't give you the reaction you were hoping for, don't be sad--just know she's being an Asian mom.
