Creative People More Than A Little Eccentric?

Are creative people a little freakish and unique? I've heard some people lament about creative people before - "They're a little weird sometimes because the creativity in them makes them a little bit cuckoo somewhere in their heads". 
On a scale of creativeness (of cuckooness), I think I rank myself a 7. I am not considered a creative genius but I consistently have some good (and mostly horrid) ones enter my head. And there's nothing more satisfying than to see one of your creation come to fruition. 
(I bet you can see where my LAW DEGREE could fit into this whole equation or strange personality, right. Right)
But do you REALLY think creative people are little funny? Or eccentric? If you ask me, my answer would be a wonderful 'yes' because most of the creative geniuses I know in the music, writing and other advertising or movie-making industry are a little funny in the head. They have out-of-the-norm perception of what's acceptable and are often a little loud-mouthed (identify yourself if you think I am talking about you). 
Creative people and writers, musicians or actors are born with that streak in them and it's because they have loads of things that they see and others don't that they get a little impatient with others. 
Just's like "Why can't you see it, you big fat dumbo? It's right there under your nose. We could do this and that...and then this...then that and it would ALL COME TOGETHER so BEAUTIFULLY". 
Normal people will stare at them with mouth open.....really? Would it? Aaaahhh....if you say so. But inside their heads, they're probably thinking, "This person's really got his or her screws all wrong, man"
Creative people may have a slightly more....erm....eccentric and attention-worthy personalities but I would not be too keen to call them weirdos or cuckoo-heads. Instead, I would like to think of creative people as a necessity because....without them, the world will be normal and there would be no entertainment and drama.

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 …
