Butt Out, Bi**H

Some people just can’t stop trying to control other people. It annoys me….so completely that I just feel like an uncontrollable knee-jerk reaction to reach across the table and twack their noses! The thing is, some people have this really infuriating habit of trying to teach you how to teach your kids. That’s exactly what I am getting at lah, OK? It’s like someone who’s constantly watching you…and waiting for you to foul up so she will walk up to you and point it out to you very ‘cheerfully’ and ‘nicely’. I take her words with a PUNCH of salt, for your information and most of the time, I try to steer clear. You’ll never know when my hand (and mouth) might decide enough is enough, you know! Anyway, had a dinner gathering last night and met up with some of the most fabulously animated gwai-lows and made some new friends together with some relatives discussing everything under the sun. Our conversation was laced with McCallan and some other drink that I cannot remember liao lah. Oh. Yeah. I mixed McCallan with my kedondong+sour plum juice in hope of coming up with a brand new Malaysian-style cocktail. Erm…don’t do it. :-) Let my adventoursome nature be a lesson to you. Hee hee hee…. A.NY.WAY. There’s this annoying lady hovering around us, not being able to mingle around with us because she’s got a baby to carry around and all that, you see. My kids were basically loitering around with their cousins. They do things that most kids do lah….having fun, laughing, falling on the floor, lying on the chair, argue, wanna bash each other up and playing again. Normal-lah. And I have a maid watching over them. So, I enjoy myself with my conversation mah, right? But this annoying lady keeps coming me and reporting to me what my kid is doing, telling me that he shouldn’t be lying down on one of the chairs, laughing when I take a drink, making sarcastic remarks that I felt she was shoving down my throat. Me? Sensitive? Yeah, maybe. McCallan didn’t have time to work yet, OK? So, maybe I felt that she was a little too….urgh. Like hovering around, trying to remind me that I shouldn’t be enjoying myself TOO MUCH because my kids are this and that, this and that! YOU. GO. TAKE. CARE. OF. YOUR. KIDS. I love my kids but I have a maid who is watching over them. When they do something bad, my maid will come to me, thank you very much! I wanted to tell her to leave me alone and let me enjoy my mindless almost-drunken chatter. If she feels left out, fine, sit down and chat, then. And she always have to tell me what to do, how to do things, why this, why that. It’s not always in a friendly-friendly way…it’s in a I-know-better-than-you-because-you’re-so-dumb way. B.I.T.C.H.

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 …
