Drunk People Cannot Make Comments on Blogs

OK, here's the thing with this image thing....you don't want people to design robots or programs or spiders or cockroaches or whatever to spam blogs and websites. I understand that. In fact, I am all for it. It's annoying to have spambots come in and post one liners like.... Can't get it up? Try this website. Top quality Viagra for low pricing. Value discount if bought inbulk. Or the most common ones would be.... Want a completely paid-for holiday with your family and coming home to a villa beside the sea before taking a spin in your luxury car. Then you have to read this! It's amazing! Within three weeks, you will get $32,000 in your account. Within a month, whether you like it or not, we'll bank in $65,498 into your bank account. Within six months, you're a f*%#@* royalty. I don't like that....and I assuming you don't like that either, right? If you have a popular blog, you get even worse stuff like hate mails, awful comments or people who are just jealous or experiencing severe PMS symptoms. Hence, word image verification came into play. It's a good thing... But these days, I think it's gotten so bad that some of these blog companies are GOING OVERBOARD with this image reading this, don't you think? OK, for example. For www.linkmarket.net, I like it that their verification system is very simple. It's just like this. Can see, right? Simple....7 and a 5 and an M. I think in this case, even the most sophisticated spambot cannot 'read' or 'see' the image. Logical. But for some reason, the simple image verification is not enough wor, so they have voice or audio verification. Fine. Option for those who are blind or have sight problems. Then they up the ante summore (some more) by putting in more words. I forgot where I downloaded the above image from....maybe when commenting on a wordpress blog or something. For dunno whatever reason, it seems that spambots can now READ the image. The '75M' thing is no longer enough. Now, you have additional words in there and some are capital and then some are lower case. Maybe it's designed so that dyslexic people cannot comment on blogs because they can't read the blog post properly in the first place. Geesshhh....I don't know why. Then up the ante went again....and this time, it borders on being ridiculous liao. I think this latest one from Yahoo! Buzz borders on insane lor...don't you think? I wonder what the intention is/was. To prevent drunk people from commenting in blogs or logging into their account? Honestly, if you're drinking or high on drugs, you'll probably type T V B T 7 p This is a mild one...there were some that took me four to five tries just to get it correct, ok? Siow wan (crazy), these people. Some cross out words lah, jumble lah, make invisible lah....I mean, isn't a simple image verification thing quite enough which serves the purpose....spambots cannot (as of this moment) read images?

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 …
