He ain't heavy, he's my BROTHER

Merdeka been very boring, man. Didn't even get to see fireworks from my place. Was facing opposite side from where all the fireworks were going to be, so, walked downstairs to the poolside with the kids in their pajamas but condo buildings blocked the view also. I said, "Oh shucks, ah well, never mind. Happy Malaysia day, kids. Never mind, ok?" "That's too bad, huh, mom?", says Joshua "Yeah, just too bad. I thought this would be the best night of my life", laments little Jared. Mommy thinks that was just so dramatic but then 5-year-old kids don't know that. Never mind. :-) *giggles* Then we walked leisurely back to our condo with the sound of fireworks going off in the sky. And Jared swaggered around cautiously because he was afraid of ghosts and monsters...and the night was dark and it was Kwai Cheet (Month of the hungry ghosts). Joshua, being a big brother, held out his hands and said, "Here Jared, you can hold my hand". Tears welled up in my eyees. I was walking behind them and the two brothers held hands oblivious to how touching the scene was from the back. Like one of those Merdeka 'we are together in this' advertisements from Petronas or DIGI or CELCOM or something. A scene where little boys held hands together! SSSSSOOOOOOO SSSWWWEEEEEEETTTTTT!!!!!! Man, why didn't I bring my camera or my mobile phone with me that time? I thought I always carry my phone with me??? Shit, man. Really missed the chance to take a picture. But I am happy that the two brothers are very nice to each other and will feed each other food and will leave something aside for each other if there's something nice. Like if I have a cake and it's really nice, they won't finish the whole thing even though it's nice. One will always leave a half or a little bit behind in reserve for the other. Yea, sure-lah. They fight and all that sometimes and they get on each other's nerves all the time but in the core, they are really protective of each other. And I am really happy about that.

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…
