Woo Hoo! It's My Birth-fooking-day

Happy birthday to me, Happy birthday to me, Happy birthday to me, Happy birthday toooooo mmmmmeeeeee.... clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap!!!! Tomorrow, not doing anything in particular. In fact, not doing anything at all. Not sending the kids to school, cancelled piano classes for them, no cooking, no cleaning, no washing, no laundry, no sweeping, no work....not a single thing. I am just going to pig out. And oh, one more thing, I just practised doing something I am really bad at...and that's in saying NO. My mother-in-law called me and asked me if I wanted to go 'pasar' tomorrow morning. I didn't lah, but I felt that, as usual, it would be more convenient for her that I fetched her there. If not, she's got to take taxi there and all that....with that load of vegetables and meat she buys, OK? Not kidding...she buys a whole damn lot! So, I said 'OK' albeit a bit reluctantly because at the back of my mind, I was having this big pig-out party all planned out with nothing on the agenda. Then I think, think, think, think....eh, it's my fooking birthday, right? I should be the first to do anything to make sure I am happy, right? If I go pasar with her means that I might as well send the kids to school...which is one of the major things I am trying to avoid doing. So, I called her sheepishly. Me: Hellow, mother ah.....er....hee hee....tomorrow-ah, my birthday-lah. I what also don't want to do, where also don't want to go MIL: Oh...like that ah...oh, OK lah, we take taxi lah, like that Me: Eh, wait. You can wait until Thursday, right? Got some more vege in the fridge or not? MIL: Like that sure got lah, where got wait until last minute wan? Me: Like that you wait till Thursday, can or not? MIL: You ah....(laugh) like that also can. Me: Whhhaaatttt??? My birthday, you know. Once a year, treat myself kow-kow nice can, right? I am not cooking, not cleaning, not washing...not doing anything tomorrow. Just be a pig for a day. MIL: (chuckling) Aiyo....you ah. Then no need to eat ah? Me: Whatever lah. Roti, ta-pow, whatever lah. As long as no need to cook and clean can already lah. MIL: Can lah, can lah. OK, Thursday-lah. Me: Hee hee hee..... See? Actually, my MIL is actually very nice person, you know. I am a very blessed person to have her as a MIL cause she really do a lot of things for the people around her wan...and most of the time, the people around her take advantage of her. She's got her bad points lah but I can tell you her good points are more than her bad ones. Bless my mother-in-law. Bless my kids for cleaning their own rooms today because it's mommy's birthday. Bless them again because they showered all by themselves, put on their own pajamas and 'surprised' me with it because it's my birthday. Woo Hoo!!! It's my birthday....

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…
