Pac Man is still alive

Remember pac-man? The yellow round thing that looks like a cake with a piece cut out of it? It goes around in a maze eating all these pallets, being chased by ghosts, eating power pallets and then eating the ghost back? I remember I used to have one of these and played with it until it completely conked out on me. It makes the same monotous noise throughout the game but the procedure is always the same. The design of the maze changes, I think as you progress. At this moment, the kids are simply bananas over Pacman like it's the newest thing on the planet! When I told them, "Mommy used to play Pacman too when I was a little girl". Kids go, "But mom, you're old. You mean Pacman is so old too! But Pacman looks so young". Wait till I tell them about how crazy I was about Transformers. Even bought a really expensive book from overseas on all the Transformers. Anyway, so's Power Ranger and Ninja Turtles. Now, the kids are playing Pacman on their computer, not the flat 1 dimension Pacman, mind you. Their Pacman got multilevels, 3D and can perform Butt-Bounce wan, you know. They can eat special power pallets and fly through the air, soar through the sky, go through obstacles.....of course, also the conventional eating of ghosts too. And today's Pacman got other Pac people to save and Pac baddies as well. Hhhhmmmm..... Now, kids are harping on about getting Pacman game for their gameboy.

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore.

There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me.

For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media.

Since we were more like partners in crime, I f…

It's The Hormones Slinging All Over Ryan Gosling

Every time I do this, you know I'm PMS-ing. I am usually quite sane and well-behaved. I promise you this. But..... After watching The Notebook, I am fully convinced that Ryan Gosling is not a man. He's sex. Pure sex. And love, of course. I knew that.I love Ryan Gosling whether he looks like he just woke up on an island....ESPECIALLY when he's half-naked!!!!I love him even if he's kissing someone other than me (who he SHOULD be kissing)I love him even when he's got literally no hair.I love him eventhough without the beard thing, he looks like a schoolboy still growing out his pubic hair.I love Ryan Gosling to the core and then you tell me one other thing to make me fall in love with him even more! I feel signs of a mild heart attack already!He plays the piano. He sings. And he sings to KIDS for Halloween!I mean.....aawwwwww......how come we good women who are only sometimes a teeny weeny bit (and I mean really tiny bit) bitchy never get one of these? What?! We DO …

Grilled Salmon With Unagi Sauce

I always disagree with people who say that they are lazy to cook, it's too hard, no time, too difficult, easier to eat out....etc. I can't agree because I have found multiple ways to cook simple, cheap meals without causing too much of a ruckus to my schedule. All it takes is a little bit of planning ahead and research. And a sense of humor when it turns out...to put it nicely...sucks.

Anyway, here's one simple one that ANYONE (kids included) can cook up. Seriously simple and easy.


I love salmon but my kids don't like the smell and texture. But that doesn't mean that I can't go out to the market and spend RM11 on ONE single piece of salmon fish and make MYSELF one, right? Kids can have the overnight pizza. :-)
This is fresh from the market....man oh man! I LOVE IT!!
Wash it properly, de-bone the thing if you want to but I just left everything the way it is and just covered the fish with some of the following:-

Yup, salt, pepper and McCormick's season-all powder…
