Free Press With Cafe Press

I won’t be surprised if you’ve not heard of www.Cafepress.com but if you’re someone who has been researching ways to make an extra bit of dough through the Internet and you’ve got basic knowledge on Illustrator and Photoshop…oh, and FreeHand, you’ve probably heard about Cafepress.

 

I am no stranger to Cafepress because I’ve used them ACTIVELY in the past when I still had AllMomStuff dot com. I don’t know who it belongs to now but back then, I designed apparel and stuff based on parenting and motherhood. Those who have been with me for some time should have seen some of the designs I’ve posted.

 

It’s a great avenue for people to earn an extra income or personalize some of their own stuff and get them sent to you via mail. But is it feasible for people like us…living on the other side of the planet.

 

Frankly speaking, I’ve always wanted to buy some of the stuff that I designed. Oh, come on. I designed something along the lines of ‘I write’ and it had a cute like stick person writing on the wall…and I honestly thought it was adorable and yet…it would have put a USD$36 dent in my wallet NOT INCLUDING shipping. That’s more expensive than buying a DKNY here, I presume.

 

Anyway, although I’ve not bought or worn any of my own designs, I am a little surprised that the designs are still selling. Some time back, I got a cheque from Cafepress for USD$205.69 being commission. More recently, I got another one for USD54.21 being commission being for the designs sold.

 

Oooookkkkaaaayyyyy…..USD54.21 is no biggie (it’s a smallie, in fact) but it surprises me that anyone is buying any of the stuff! If you’ve got a flair for designing and are keen to just….add a couple of dollars to your account every month, WHY THE HELL NOT??

 

Especially if you’ve recently picked up graphic design skill or something and want to put a value to your designs. In fact, you can publish literally everything under the sun with the account, from CDs to hats, mugs to books, mousepads to underwear….no, REALLY. You want to design a thong, you’ve got it! :-)

 

I have an account with www.zazzle.com but I’ve sold zilch from there.

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 …
