Oh Shit or Oh Yeah

What's the first thing you think of when you wake up? Is it 'Oh Shit' or is it 'Oh Yeah!'? Or is it 'Urgh!' I think most of the time, I wake up with an 'Urgh!' and then followed by 'Oh Shit' and then at night when the kids go to sleep, I say 'Oh yeah!'. :-) It's important to wake up with a positive mind, says the expert and they're right. Most of us will have problems looking in the mirror in the morning with puffy eyes and smelly breath saying 'Oh yeah' but if we put a little effort into it, it's possible. I say this because recently, I realized how important it is for stressed-out folks like us (read: me) to make an effort to think positive right from the start. The moment we get up, if we start positive, chances are, when negative things are thrown our way, we tend to keep that positive streak in us to last us until Happy Hour. Every time our mind is filled with negative thoughts, every time we feel a negative aura creeping in, throw it out with a positive thought. I normally take 2nd son to son via a route that goes past this ORANG KAYA PUNYA TEMPATE (rich man's place) and the traffic is usually very clear and I take less than 15 minutes to drive to and back to home. But nowadays, it takes 45 mins. Because I started out with an 'Oh yeah', I swore at no one even when they unreasonably cut into my lane because they're late for work. I didn't honk when the SSSTTTTOOOOPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEDDDDDD lorry driver barreled his way in front of me. I kept a smile on (forced one, nevertheless) when some stupid drivers make three lanes out of one making me wait forever for my turn. All because of one traffic light. Recently, they placed a traffic light in front of the ORANG KAYA PUNYA TEMPAT now so that those rich people can come out into the busy lane easier. Now, normal folks like us....normal people like us earning enough to feed the kids....have to suffer. 98% suffer for the 2% who have drivers and polis (police) on motorbikes and loud sirens waving their way through. And yet, because I started out positive....looked at my own image in the mirror and said 'HWAITING!', I was OK wor. Normally would have come down and broken someone's window liao but no. When you start the morning OK, I think, for the rest of the day, you're going to be OK. I think so. But in my own blog I can swear, right? F*** THOSE RICH BASTARDS! Not enough that they have drivers...they sit in the back reading their blardie papers while the Ahmad (drivers) drive, they have police bikes putting on sirens so that we can make way for them, now they have traffic light so that they get driven to work like the BLARDIE world is theirs. What, man?! Ahem. But like I said, starting right is important. Smile at yourself in the morning and say 'HWAITING!', ok? Anyway, I am not taking that stupid route again.

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…
