Clove Two Is Disappointing

I like Clove Two of our The Star newspaper. The only reason why I buy the paper is because I want to read the World section and also the comic section. On Mondays, I look forward to the ‘Then Again’ column by Mary Schneider. Apart from that, there’s Clove Two.


But Clove Two used to be rather good because they had a lot of helpful articles and insightful info about the world that women live in. But recently (actually, it’s been a long time ever since), I find Clove Two a total gobberdook (no such word but who cares!) because the whole section is nothing but ads.


For example, there’s this article on anti-aging regimen that I went into because…well, if there’s a regimen, then I wanna know, you get what I mean? But the moment I went in, there’s a huge feature of The Zelens Skin Science skincare range product there…and I am like, “OK, cool. This is an ad so they’re hardly going to be neutral about things, so…ah well” and I clicked off.


I mean, let’s face it, all of us want a little bit of help in terms of trying to maintain or keep aging away. But the only way to do is, the most natural, actually, is to get loads of sleep, drink lots of water, eat a lot of vegetables and fruits, exercise and consume a balanced diet.


End of story. Therefore, these advertorials simply fly by me all the time. I use creams and all that but it’s not THE REGIMEN that I am looking for. 

If Clove Two want to keep readers like me, they better start writing some USEFUL stuff and look beyond the buck that these product companies are shoving up their A--

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 put it

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 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 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 …
