Youtube cannot handle the traffic?

Is it just me or is youtube.com facing the brunt of having too much traffic? Lately, loading of online videos on youtube.com have been slow. For me, at least. Furthermore, when I try out other online video websites like www.veoh.com, www.videos.google.com, www.videos.yahoo.com, and even www.metacafe.com loads a little bit faster.

For those who are not sure why, this is how things work. Whenever you log into the website and start loading stuff from the website (like in this instance, watching the videos) it uses up something we call bandwidth. The more people accessing the site, the more bandwidth is needed. I don’t know how much www.youtube.com have invested in that area but maybe, I am only speculating here, they’re feeling the weight of the traffic now? For a website so intensively promoted, the team of people behind this online video web giant should make sure the quality of service is maintained. I know they’re facing lawsuits and all that but…..

Sometimes, halfway loading of the video, it times out on me and it leaves me feeling like I’ve wasted my time waiting for the video to load. OK, so, the internet service here is a little slow and that’s not their fault.

Anyway, just wondering if anyone else is feeling that, perhaps, like all other giant websites out there on the web, it’s time for www.youtube.com to be taken over by smaller but more efficient online video websites now?

Hhhhmmmm……

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 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…

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 …
