Will The Orange Shark Strike Fear In The Hearts Of Netizens?

Never ending….the number of social networking and web 2.0 websites keep popping up nowadays, trying to take a piece of the huge mega-sized cheesecake that Facebook is chomping on. Looks like Orangeshark is making a small not-to-be-ignored wave out there and I am quite sure it’s not the only one. Too lazy to scout around for more. Just by skimming the surface of it, Orangeshark is a place where people play games, communicate and network with each other. I don’t see too many ‘vegas-style’ games, so, I assume it’s a kid-safe place. For me, I’ve not signed up with them yet….as it is, I have my plate full but my eyes are open and I would like to see how they’re doing and what kind of waves they’re making. But there’s a small part of me that is wondering, ‘Do we really need another one?’ I mean, Facebook’s got all those vampires, battles, jigsaws, scrabbles, drink-throwing, face-slapping, sheep-throwing, coffee-giving, drink-mixing games in there as it is (I hardly use them anymore), so, what makes Orangeshark different from the rest? As far as I can see, there’s nothing uniquely different about this website that can effectively lure people out of Facebook. In all honesty, as far as social networking is concerned, FB’s still got it. Even with all those reminders, I’ve ignored my Friendster account because of how dumb and non-user-friendly blogging and updating system. It’s time for Friendster to just….die in its sleep...peacefully. This is because it served us well when it was still....alive. Back to Orangeshark, I like the website and the concept. This website is probably trying to compete against bigger and more established networks like Facebook and Yahoo Games….and what-have-you-nots. You can tell that I am sssoooooo into games, can’t you? :-) I’m just a very business-thinking kind of person….wasting time is not on cards right now but I just can’t help exploring all the new things happening in the cyberworld, that’s all. It’s called e-kepoh. :-) Yahoo! Games have been really successful in capturing the younger market by offering really fun free games. I think they’re making tons of money from their advertisements alone. Oh yeah, what about Neopets? Neopets has been there for ages and my 11-year-old niece is hooked on her pet and the games in there, so….yeah, I think Orangeshark would have to up-the-ante a little against Neopets as well. Ah well. Anyway, I would like to take the opportunity to wish all Indian Malaysians a very Happy Deepavali and may you have a fun-filled, thrilling and tummy-filling (much awaited) TWO DAY OFF as your well-deserved public holiday!

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…
