I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry

Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Jessica Biel, Ving Rhames, Steve Buchemi, Dan Aykroyd Marsha’s rating: 79% I totally get this movie and commend the scriptwriters for doing a good job at spinning out the characters and story nicely…except for the ending which was a little too rushed. (as usual, my complaint is always the ending).
Adam Sandler is Adam Sandler but he just isn’t so funny in here. Loved some of his one-liners here, though! He is capable of delivering those unique Sandler one-liners that kills you with laughter like no one else can. I’ve never heard of Kevin James before this movie (please forgive me for my ignorance) so, my judgment of his performance is on a clean slate…and it’s a pretty damn good one too! Unfortunately, in this movie, you'll notice that Sandler is one of the producers....so, you know who's wearing the pants here. If I had it my way, I thought Kevin James actually did a better job in this movie than Sandler did.
I was thinking that they were creeping along very shaky lines here…as in…we’re talking about gay movement here, boys, be careful where you thread. Gays may be gays but they’re a pretty strong bunch of people up there in the States. Anyway, they did a very good job out of turning the tables on us straight people – straight people turns out to be the unpredictable, unreasonable monsters here who uses the word ‘faggots’ freely on gays. Underneath the storyline lies one very simple message…it’s not wrong, nor criminal to be gay. It’s everyone’s right to be gay, despite the fact that Chuck and Larry were not gays, but only pretending to be gays. Their ‘act’ did not stop them from feeling for these people who had ‘different sexual preferences’. No complaints there. However, the biggest complaint I have (not the ending, this time) is Jessica Biel. She’s got nice boobs and we can ask Sandler how it feels like and how much those peaks of her felt since he had ‘first hand’ information about all of that in the movie but her character is just too….BIMBO. And eexxxcccuuuussseee mmmmeeee, she’s supposed to be a really smart lawyer and we find nothing wrong with her dancing in a Cat Woman suit on the bar, shaking her booty to a salivating bunch of men (I thought they were gay…well…). I mean….where’s the logic? So BIMBO! I would place 80% of the blame on the scriptwriters for making her so UNBELIEVABLE DUH!!!!! Her lines were along the lines of stupid stuff like, ‘Here, don’t believe me that my boobs are fake? Here…feel them. I don’t mind, feel them’ and she doesn’t see Sandler squirming around and trying to hide a hard-on! Oh, come on come on come on!!!! And the other 20% on her acting. It’s fake beyond belief. How they got out of the trouble of trying to defraud a government or insurance agency (which is which, I don’t give two piles of *toot* about) is beyond me. The judge was like, “Yo, you guys were so cool about the whole gay thing and now the world thinks you’re heroes, let me get you out of here” was too…..too….YOU find the word for me. Other than that, the movie was funny. I laughed at appropriate moments and felt moved at the right scenes. All in all, if someone had stuffed Jessica Biel’s face into her own bras, ‘I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry’ is a rather good one.

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 …
