Noon Rain spoils the day

Tell me if it's easy or not to stay near a school. Easy in a sense that it's close to home, so close that we can easily walk to school without breaking out into a sweat (almost!). But sometimes I envy those people who have to endure traffic jams sitting in their cars swearing at other drivers making illegal U-turns in the comfort of their leather seats. Here I am walking to school with BOTH my kids in the rain. Let's count a little. I have IN TOTAL 2 hands. But crossing two main roads are 2 kids, 1 adult, 3 umbrellas and 1 trolley bag. If I am in need of something like laundry detergent from the nearby store, I have to add a heavy plastic bag crossing the roads. And then let's add soaked shoes, soaked pants, kids waving their umbrellas about because they don't have the strength to keep the umbrella upright when a big truck zooms past or when there's a bit of wind in the air. Walau-eh! Not very easy, you know! Sorry to say this lah but sometimes being a father is FREAKING MUCH EASIER than being a mother! Am I stressed? Am I frustrated? Am I in the mood to blow up a huge monumental building...OH YES, you bet I am! I feel like feeding weed killer to the bloody renovators upstairs because they have been knocking and drilling for more than a month and the noise is driving me bananas. What could they be building up there that is taking F*****G forever? Anyway, made it safely back home (amidst all that drilling and knocking) through the rain. Why does it have to rain whenever it's time for school or coming back from school? Why can't it rain in the morning when we're all in slumberland and then QUIT IT when we're awake!!!!???? Don't tell me to leave the younger son at home alone whenever I send the elder one to school because I can imagine what other parents are going to say about how stupid a mother is to leave a 5-year-old alone at home! Irregardless of how mature they are or how short the distance, I just don't feel that I can do it. He can be up to anything within that short 10 to 15 minutes and I just can't take the chance. What a shitty Monday this is....

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…
