This is Malaysia, not your own country….

I live in a place where many foreigners like to populate. This is turning into another Desa Sri Hartamas. Must be something the govt worked out or perhaps it’s the offers by the developers or management companies. Give me two minutes to figure out how to write this without me sounding like a nun…. OK. Like this. This is Malaysia and we have comparatively stringent and restrictive laws about showing too much skin, or being overly sexually expressive with the opposite sex. Generally speaking, excessive touching and oral exchange of bodily fluid is acceptable, most of the time, behind closed doors…which also includes under the influence of alcohol provided you’re not behind the wheel. That one, another funky story. In pubs, in alleyways and in stairwells, you have all these desperate pubescent kissing up a storm and going on a touching rampage while adrenaline and hormones scorch their nerve endings. Some do the deed, some don’t. In short, if you’re not drinking in a night spot or hidden behind closed doors, kissy-touchy stuff is no-no. And don’t you think people would have the decency to act a little bit more respectable when there are kids around? No? My kids are not yet in their teens but trust me, I have been inundated with their questions relating to the opposite sex and one particular disturbing question that goes something like this. How did you actually make me? (Came from younger son) So, technically, answers like ‘you burst out from a rock’, the ‘stock dropped you’ or ‘you just appeared out of nowhere’ is not going to work now. They curious....really, REALLY curious and I would like to keep them away from this topic until at least the time they're ready to get married or when they discover the whole process for themselves. I’ve explained the birds and bees! I have! But maybe they just want me to BLOODDY REPEAT IT AGAIN for the sake of seeing me turn red in the face and squirm. And it doesn’t help when these foreigners living in my condo are so….liberal with their dressing and behavior. One lady was wearing a camisole about 20 sizes too small for her that it literally looked like a bra on her…like she’s walking around in a bra and her jeans! And her boobs were spilling out…the faint sign of her areola peeking out from the top of her camisole. (I can see you guys rubbing your hands together. DOWN, boy, DOWN!!!) I can’t imagine her finding a bra her size here in Malaysia….totally. And then in the swimming pool….sigh…..what can I say? If we were not there, I don’t think these few people would have stopped at just sneaking their hands into each others’ swimwear! I tried to shoot daggers at them with my eyes but missed miserably. The couples had eyes only for each others’ (privates). Dragging the kids to the other end of the pool didn’t help because my cheeky kids would try to sneak their way back to the other end of the pool when I try to do a lap. So, I stopped doing laps, sat there and watched over my kids while they watched the grope-fest. I mean, if there are kids in the pool, don’t you think these people should at least bring their grope-festival upstairs or at least hide behind one of those huge pine trees or something?

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…

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 …

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…
