Mom, The Sausages Look Like….

I like to make things as simple as possible in the kitchen. As long as it’s edible and simple to make, then that’s mua’s recipe. As you can see, I am no chef but I like to eat the food that I like to eat and I also like to make the food I like to eat…provided it’s simple enough to make. Anything that involves complicated blendering, chopping, hours of cutting….not for me. RM16 sausages…no preservatives, no MSG, no processing, everything very de-healthy sausages… Don’t look down on these sausages. These pork sausages are very wholesome and as unprocessed as they come. That’s why they cost RM16….six for RM16, so each sausage is about RM2.6666666. They’re almighty delicious, though so it’s worth it. But considering the fact that the price of just about everything on earth is going up, I’ve been on this mad rampage to keep every meal under RM15. This meal is a couple of bucks over the budget…only the sausage alone, so what the hell lah, right? But here’s the thing…. I cooked these sausages for lunch and we didn’t finish it…t’was just me and Jared (Joshua eats his lunch in school) so we had leftovers for dinner. For dinner, I used the cheat way to cook which is to dump everything into the wok (for me, it’s the rice cooker) wan which is my specialty…the one-wok-cook method. Works very well, I must say. So, dinner was like this. Leftover sausages from lunch Minced pork – RM4 Onion & garlic – RM0.50 BBQ meat sauce – RM1.50 Rice – RM2 Vegetables – RM1.50 Salted vege – RM0.50 All in all, dinner tonight cost me RM10 exactly. Terror or not? Dinner for three under RM15….mission accomplished! Hee hee hee… Just for the sake of it, I thought the picture of the said expensive sausages were pretty interesting. I leave it to your imagination what it looks like. WARNING: If you’re under 25, please consult with your parents what these sausages look like. If you’ve got it all figured all by yourself, you’re naughty and should be spanked. I volunteer to come spank you. Now, off to bed before I go there with my clothes hanger (Marsha’s version of the tee-na/rotan/tang-thiu/theng-thiau/cane).

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…
