Almost Fried

Came home in the dark....no really. It has been a long and tiring day yesterday mostly because of fetching the kids here there and everywhere. Then when I came home at night, everything was dark. Keep pressing the switch on and off, on and off....nothing happened. The kids going 'Mom, this house is so spooky. Maybe it's haunted'.....DIDN'T HELP!! Luckily, husband parked his car and was on his way up already. So, decided to wait downstairs for him to come up and see what in the world is wrong with the....the whole thing lah. Came up, he tinkled around with the switches the switch box....on off on off....nothing wor. In the wet kitchen, there's this particular power socket that has been giving us some problems all this while. It keeps giving us problems by frying up the sockets and all that. After many times of changing the power socket and the connecting sockets, it finally gave in. It bloody exploded! The irony of it all is this....me and the kids are usually at piano class on Thursdays and then we would usually come home to the condo without visiting my in-laws' punya house nearby. No time for kids to do homework and relax if we go there. But this Thursday, my husband asked me to bring the kids over there and usually I would refuse. Maybe because I was kind of tired, I agreed lor. Imagine if the power socket exploded and burned while I was in the wet kitchen washing dishes or something! Alamak....I tell you, I will really freak out and call the fire department already! But luckily, the burn wasn't extensive....but still scary lah, right? Really ironic and funny that I was decided to bring the kids over to in-laws at that particular night after Joshua's piano class, isn't it? If not, I would be stuck here with no inkling as to what to do with the stupid thing. Maybe even throw water or something at it. Dunno...and then electrocute myself in the process hor? Scary, man!

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…
