Got screwed sideways from tuition teacher

Man…..I probably deserved it. Looking at how my elder son is now in a Private School, I didn’t need this teacher’s Chinese school methods of teaching anymore. So, lasts Saturday, I suggested to her that we end the sessions. She said that I needed to give her one month’s notice. But to me, since it wasn’t working and school started already, what I did was try to negotiate with her. “We come to a compromise lah. You give Joshua 4 more lessons instead of 8 and I pay you half month fee, can?” She said, “But you should tell me earlier lor. This way, how can I survive now? I have to look for other students to take up his place” I paused then said, “I am sorry about that but we came to the decision quite suddenly. I think half a month is OK to look for new student to take up your slot” She seems a bit angry at this point. Can’t blame her but you cannot blame me as well mah. Joshua hates her teaching style which includes a bit of a ‘Woi! Concentrate! I ask you to write here lah, not there! Why can’t you listen to me wan?” If she continues to teach Joshua this way, then I would be wasting my money, Joshua wasting his time. So, I negotiate lor. Then she said, “OK, I compromise with you lah. I give your son 4 more lessons but on condition that you pay me today” “Erm….OK” I kow-tim pay her liao and after the lesson, she just ciao-ed like that….without informing me or anything like that. Usually she will tell me that she’s done and is leaving. Today, Saturday, I call her after lunch which is when the tuition is supposed to happen lah, rite? After an hour went by, I suspected that I got screwed sideways liao. Instead of using my normal handphone to call her, I used my second number to call her….the personal number that I try not to reveal to anyone especially for work purposes. Hee hee hee…. She picked up the phone. “Hi! Miss Ng. Are you coming?” Toot. Toot. Toot. She hang up wor!!!! Tiu. (Cantonese for fuck) Breathe, Marsha, breathe……

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 …
