Nothing like Rudy and JJ to perk up your morning AhMat job

I thought working from home means that I don’t need to fight the morning gridlock that Malaysia is famous for. I was wrong. Now, I have to fight the traffic many times throughout the day as I become an Ahmat (driver) to my kids, fetching to and from school. Gawd…..I don’t know how to tell you how much I hate the morning traffic and the lunch traffic snag. But I take comfort in the morning (usually I am stuck in the car between 7.30am till 9.00am) when I listen to Hitz.fm’s morning crew....Rudy and JJ. Although at my age, I should be listening to Light & Easy for some soothing music but I tell you, you must kena their crazy kind of humor in the morning and it perks you up big time, right or not? Like this morning, I woke up late and started barking at my kids from 7.30 onwards (7.30 supposed to leave the house but today 7.30 only WAKE UP!) and then we reach the car, I bark some more. Like a bitchy mom. Then in the car, I heard Rudy & JJ’s ‘I got it from my Mamak’ (originally I wrote it as 'Mama' following the original song but kena pressure into changing it into the altered title. Pua ha ha ha ha ha!) parody rhapsody and I cracked up. The kids who were sullen in the backseat before was cracking up too at their high-pitched impersonation of a woman’s voice. Then we all laugh together-geder. Everybody happy family! All because of this two bunches of monkeys-lah, you know. Good job! And some more, I want to say something about that song they copied…..yeah, you got it from your mama but your papa never did anything, is it? How come you got the good things from your mama and your papa was sleeping while you were being conceived? And how come all the hip-hop songs these days are into crediting their mamas for everything. NOW, everyone who’s a papa to someone, stand-up and make some noise!

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 …
