What do you believe in?

Have you ever thought about what you believe in? This topic came up after one of my friends decided to take his own life…and he lives opposite my condo. I was scared shitless half the time and didn’t want to come home or stay home or look outside the window. Scared mah! One morning (1 or 2 in the morning), I placed a call to my sister and just uttered, “Very scared wor. How?”

Next morning, my mother dropped by my house with her religious paraphernalia and started asking me to pray whenever I feel scared. *LOL*. She meant well and the religion did help her get over difficult moments in her life and being her daughter, she definitely wants the best for me (as kick-ass naughty as I was with her during my teens). I really appreciated that. Then recently, I chatted with a friend in another country who used to be my school friend. He mentioned being actively involved in church and other stuff he believed in.

Which brought me around to blogging about this. What do I believe in since I don’t have a religion? I agree that religion is an important aspect to living because religion, irregardless of your choice, fills a person with hope when one is down. It lifts when one is falling.

So, since I am religion-less, I asked myself, “Marsha, what do you believe in?” Although I don’t have a certain MAKER that I completely believe in (I am a very sore and hopeless cynic), these are the things that I believe in and they all keep me happy and alive.

Myself. Number one. I believe that a person can do anything if that person put his or her heart into it. Every single cell in his or her body must pulsate with passion. This is something I strongly believe in.

Music. I’ve said this to some people before….my obsession with music and singing is indescribable. Music gives me strength. Music changes my mood. I can create music to change my mood therefore; I consider music to be one of the most powerful healers in the world.

Dreams….er…the ones you have when you’re conscious and kicking office workers’ asses! I have been using this statement for the longest time which is “Dreams make the soul, without the soul, the body is nothing. So Live Your Dreams….”. To me, this is a very strong statement and it led me into making unorthodox decisions in my life…decisions that stunned many people. But to me, without a dream, there’s no point in living. Without a dream, it’s like existing and not living.

Charity. I believe in Karma which explains why I don’t like to blab about the bad things that other people did in front of others. Anyway, doing good to others is something I really believe in…not to get something back in return but to get that emotional fulfillment of being co-humans. That….it helps you find peace with others and yourself as well.

Life. Everyone should belief in life….in living. Live well, live good and live happy.

You. I believe in every one of you because in some ways, you have enriched my life and even if you’ve just dropped by this blog, it doesn’t matter. I see you come in and you’ve enriched my life in that way.

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…
