I have a wok problem

Listen, it's good that I have a maid now, right? But you know how it is when a person's got his or her own's MY KITCHEN!!! Blardie shit, it's MY KITCHEN!!!! hee hee hee... Anyway, this maid of mine (below twenty years old) very enthusiastic about opening a restaurant or something when she goes home, so, she always asking me to let her cook. But the problem is that it's MY FOOD and I want to eat what I LIKE TO EAT, so, she have to cook it MY WAY, right or not? But no wor, she wants to cook it her way wor. The problem is....I also like to cook the things that I want to eat....but she keep fighting with me to test-drive her cooking skills. Every time, very very early, she will ask me whether she can cook or not? I am like....what the FFFF! It's 9.45am morning and you want to cook what??? Use who's chicken? Who's beef? Who's sayur? Who's soya sause? Who's.... OK OK OK....I am getting way overboard here because I am a little miffed because I've been asked 'Can I cook this?' for the whole month liao. When I marinate something, I mean, I have something in mind lah, right? And I know what my kids like, (and I LIKE) so I have something in mind liao mah (already). So, this fler (fella), always come and ask me whether she can come and cook it like this, cook it like that....sigh.... If I want her to help me cook, then I will ask lah. If not, then I will just ask her to potong the sayur (cut the veg) and wash the Fooking wok lah, rite or not??? It's MY FOOKING KITCHEN, MY FOOKING FOOD AND MY FOOKING KIDS! I get to decide what to cook with the food that I buy..... GGGGgggggrgrrrrrrrrrrrrr.... I have a maid who is fighting for the wok with me....shikes! Ok, maybe you're saying 'Maybe she only wants to help out leh?' True. I asked her 'You really wanna help out with the cooking, isn't it?' (albeit a little bit sarcastically, but the sarcasm flew over her head like a cuckoo bird). And you know what she said? "I want to take the opportunity to learn how to cook here". WOY!!! This is playground for you ah?? This is not a cooking school....this is my house, my family you're talking about! Don't test-test here! You wanna test, use your own money, stay at home and test all you want! We will try to accomodate your eating habits, your favorite dishes and all that but ultimately, it's still my home, right or not? I strongly believe that I also have to learn how to accommodate another person in the house. This is a time to learn....and I blardie hell have to learn fast, man!! p.s. In all other areas, she's fine. Maybe I am overprotective of my kitchen lah. And also maybe I can border on severely maniacal about the food that my kids eat....OR MAYBE I JUST FOOKING PMS-lah! But don't worry lah, folks. I won't quarrel with her or murder her or throw her off the fourth floor. I am quite good at swallowing air (tolerance level rather high). I am sure this will come in handy at swallowing fire (anger) as well. I am just gonna swallow it...just like that...kkkkooootttttt....down the throat to maintain mental health and peace in the home. But still sipet tulan (super pissed off), you know keep hearing it two three times a day....

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…

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun.

I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose.

This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-)

For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, remember th…
