Malaysia's all talk and no do on recycling

Spent the weekend catching up on reading. Come to think of it, I've been so busy of late that I've missed out on reading completely. And it's one of those things that I love to do. The only reason why I have the time and opportunity to read this weekend is because I was upgrading my PC and you know how it is when you're working with programs, installing and uninstalling, cleaning up the computer and're staring at the status bar.....staring and staring and staring. So, what I do? Grab a book and read lah! So, I was reading Reader's Digest (still my favorite book or mag!) and there was an article about recylcling and how the future generation would be swimming through piles of garbage by 2025.....etc. Being a responsible human and citizen, I started telling myself that I also have to start recycling all the beer cans, wine bottles, shampoo bottles, old clothes, broken sunglasses....etc. :-) But then you know what? I don't know where to go. The only time I actually see any sign or promotion of recycling is when I am shopping in 1 Utama or IKEA. I cannot very well carry my load there, rite? People think I am demented or something. So, where to take all that junk lah in this case? I went into the Internet and check but there's very limited information about how Malaysians can recycle....which is sad. We have Green Day and urgent calls to action about how to make the world a better place and how to recycle so that we don't waste earth's resources but no information. What the government needs to do is to make these information more available. It's not enough to just keep moving your jaw up and down so that the rest of the world thinks that we're doing something about making the world a better place. DO SOMETHING. Anything. I am sure some of us have also wondered how to recycle and all that and have come nose to brick with a wall of no information. I wonder if the newspaper's got anything on recycling, where the centers are, the numbers and do they have transportation and all that. I am more than willing to start the recycling process but where the hell do you think I should start? If you have information on that, please let me know. Appreciate it.

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…

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 put it

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 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…

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 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 …
