Yesterday was supposed to be a very relaxed day but for some reason, it was very stressful indeed. The only consolation I had was that I spent the evening eating dinner at my sis' and bro's place nearby. Cooked some char-siew and fish and headed over for our potluck-style dinner. Very yummy (since it's been some time I've eaten my mother's cooking) and relaxing in a lot of ways. I did not manage to escpade the cruel onslaught of work and housework...too bad. Not because I didn't want to but I couldn't. Shikes....I know. I shouldn't have. I should have learned how to say 'no way, Jose!' but.... Anyway, today is back to normal and catching up with the loads of work that was backlogged before. But relatively fine. But one thing, though....how come some people tend to think that I am so darn free and should be fine with the running around when I work from home. I just can't crack that nut over there, you know. It's like...they have a broken pipe and it's 'Call Marsha'. Someone needs to send money to someone overseas and it's 'Call Marsha'. Never mind....it's OK. I do whatever I can do lah....as long as I know that my sanity is more important than anything else on this planet. If they think they can tamper with it, they can sod off for all I care. I am going on a mission to slowing things down again after catching up with the bit of work I have backlogged. Before I end, I want to remind 'someone' to stop with that 'relax lah' comment, ok? It's a one off thing and I am pretty relaxed most of the time. Just because I had a bad Mother's Day doesn't mean that I am crazy and about to loot the bank because I wanna piss off my in-laws. Relax....I am fine. Give me two days to sort the backlog out and I am fine.

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…
