Yam Seng but don't be a Sam Seng

I love to drink. I mean it. I love to drink because I enjoy it. trust me, my relationship with alcoholic beverages have brought me so much misery and pain in the past that I’ve reached a plateau….an understanding, a compromise, an agreement with it. Now, when I drink, it’s because I enjoy it and want to unwind or enjoy myself. I just wish some people would get a hold of themselves and understand the concept of drinking. Effects of drinking:- louder, braver, more emotional, impulsive, stupider, uncooler, bloated ego, imaginarily enhanced muscles, elongated private assets, sharper nose, bigger balls, etc. That’s how people get into trouble after drinking. Please drink carefully and don’t drive after you drink. Yes, I know you can but just don’t, OK? Take the friggin’ cab for crissakes. Just leave your ego behind, leave your car there….take the cab and be safe. When you drink, you see the world going slower, so you drive faster. Then someone honks you, alcohol takes over, you curse the bugger down the road, and then a chase ensues. STOO.PEED. At least if you take the cab, you can’t force the cab driver to chase down the car. And don’t fight for goodness sakes. People get loud and obnoxious after they drink…they think they are suddenly hero and bigger, more muscular….sigh. Just drink and enjoy your game or company with friends. If you’re at home, enjoy your drama or book quietly, then go to sleep. Instead of creating havoc and let alcohol take over.

No, if you want to drink, you’ve got to have a stranglehold on your emotions. You have to let it flow but you have to be in complete control of it. Otherwise, you’ll likely do things you’ll regret later. Aiya, you’ll just ha ve to trust me on this one. Funnily, in the bible, people drink to celebrate, in Buddhism and in all kinds of culture, drinking in part of life and entertainment. This is how we should maintain it instead of bashing each other up after a few mugs (more like a few bottles of VSOP down the throat and burning off layers of your stomach lining). And don’t drink excessively. Know your limits because this is a very fine line. Often times, you don’t know you’ve crossed it until you’ve crossed it. So, learn the signs and symptoms. Now, yam seng!!! But don’t be samseng…

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 …
