My guy, MacGyver

Many of you were still in diapers when TV was showing one of the most intelligent show (by last time's standards) on the planet starring a man with the dreamiest eyes possible. McGyver. I mean, there was nothing this guy cannot fix and give him a hammer, a nail and a screwdriver and the fella just builds a bomb! Richard Dean Anderson may not be the best actor nor does he have the hottest bod in the world but man, he's way cool in MacGyver. What happened to the show anyway? And accordingly, Richard Dean Anderson is now about my father's age....damn. For those of you were not lucky to be born early enough to watch the show, MacGyver was one of the hottest shows (still is, next to Knight Rider) on the planet. Compared to all those reality TV that we have on air these days, sigh.....MacGyver is a simple guy working as a cannot-remember-what-he-was-working-as with kick-ass attitude and brain of a rocket scientist. When he lands himself in shit, he can make use of just about anything around him to get himself out of trouble. Of course, sometimes you feel like....wahhh....where got such coincidence wan? But that's the beauty of the show, I guess. MacGyver using his brains and knowledge of science to get himself out of trouble. What I really like is the fact that he's the man of my dreams!! No, not Anderson per se but MacGyver! Quiet, mid-mannered (never seen him raise his voice in the show before), very disciplined and SMART LIKE HELL. MacGyver is different because there's an underlying message to be delivered. You don't need guns and bombs to be big. All you need is your head. When you use your head, you can create unorthodox solutions to problems. Think out of the box. With knowledge, MacGyver can whip the bad guys' asses from here to another Milky Way. I miss MacGyver. In fact, I think my kids would enjoy watching MacGyver. :-)

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 …
