Beijing Masseur Experience

Lately got a bit of stress about working and taking care of the kids during the holidays, so, I thought I would reward myself with some pampering therapy. There's this reflexology and massage and beauty center near my place so decided to check it out. The place is very nice wan and decor was emaculate. Because the place is new, everything smells like brand new leather. Soft music....mmm.....soft lighting...mmmm..... But then here's the thing. I made an appointment with my regular beauty center Leonard Drake earlier but because of some mix-ups, I lost my appointment. But I really wanted someone to pamper me wor. That's why I ended up there....try lah, something new mah....who knows. Furthermore, they're nearer and maybe cheaper leh? Cheaper, definitely. Nearer, sure thing. Better....NOT. With all this beauty and pampering business ah, skill and training is important. Leonard Drake spends a lot of effort, time and money training their staff, that's why they're called professionals. But this one ah, the staff are from Beijing wan wor. I have nothing against foreign workers, let me make this clear first. In fact, I would love to help them earn money for their families back home by patronizing the establishment that they work for. But first, they must be good lor, rite or not? The owner was over-eager while the woman who gave me the massage was over-POWERFUL. Like I said, you're dealing with other people's body and when people go for massage, they're giving you full permission to close the proximity line...pay you some more, you know! The woman was super energetic and strong that after the massage, several spots on my body ache to the touch. I feel better lah, muscles more relaxed now but these spots are a bit sore, you know. The business should train their Beijing masseurs so that they don't injure other people. These masseurs should listen to people when people say "Pain. Pain!". The Beijing masseurs should also be taught how to speak Cantonese and understand basic English as well lor. Half the time she goes on yakking about this and that and with my face in that hole, I said "Mmmmm". I don't know what she say mah....then suddenly she do something and I jerk my head around and ask "Ni chuo ser mor ah?" "?????" "???????' "???????????" She talk duck, I talk chicken. How I know what she said? Some more hor, Beijing people got heavy accent when they talk, so, it's very hard to understand. Anyway, should I go back to the establishment and tell them about my sore spots. Not complain but to just....you know, let them know or something. I feel bad about doing it. Maybe I should just disappear and let them be. But what if this happens to other people and they get sued. I also don't want that.

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 …
