Impatient Driver Gets What He Deserved

The place where I currently live, is a well-known traffic jam area. If you’re looking for traffic gridlock, come to my place. All times of the day – on Fridays and Saturdays, it stretches to till 10am. And there’s this rather precarious access road out that THE WHOLE WORLD chooses to use from neighboring places – and it’s a one-lane thing that stretches for quite a bit. Yesterday, I was heading out during peak hour to my in-laws’ place…needless to say, jam-lah. But patiently (or seething underneath), we waited slowly as the crawl inched forward. Suddenly from behind me, there was hero driving a white perodua kancil (or myVi….what do I know about cars, anyway. For foreign readers, it's the safer and cheaper alternative putting a rocket to a sardine can) who decided that he was far more important than the rest of the world. he decided that we were bloody morons for choosing to stick to our one-lane limitation so, he swerved out of the lane and into the opposite lane. I think the mentality was like this…. ‘I swerve in and out of the lane. If there’s oncoming car, I can always manhandle my way back into the right lane and get ahead by…say precious 2 minutes to the traffic lights?’ When he swerved his car out, gung-ho the fler. Act (drive) like super hero, damn terror fast. And of course, he left us all behind in a smoke of exhaust fume and the sound of his super-duper modified exhaust pipes reverberating through our gray matter. Cilakak, idiot! It’s these fooking idiots who causes accidents’, I swore under my breath. Along this access road, there’s one blind spot. I’ve seen three head-on collisions here so far – I don’t think any of them were fatal but one of them was rather serious because the windscreen actually pecah (broke) which mean that the driver probably had a bit of head injury, big or small, I don’t know and don’t feel that there’s any particular need to find out. Then traffic came to a near-standstill right there and then. Swearing even more as I seethe in the light drizzle, humming to the sound of ‘doe a dear’ coz my kids were singing in the car. I came to the blind spot and saw that the very super hero who thought he was so damn smart to cut cue had been involved in a head-on collision with a victim who was coming from the opposite direction at the BLIND SPOT!!! A part of me pitied the poor MPV driver…nice golden-colored car (don’t ask me what car and what number plate…both of them lost their bumpers). A group of people were standing to the side of the road, apparently in a serious discussion. Aaahhh….no one injured. Okie dokies, I can start cheering now. I tell you, all the way to my in-laws’ place, I couldn’t stop saying ‘Serve the bloody idiot right. Pity the other driver’ and ‘PADAN MUKA, cilakak!’ That’s why….drive properly lah, folks. It’s these impatient people who cause accidents and unlucky people are caught in it because of one person’s imagined superiority over other road users. I was impatient too and hate traffic jams as much as hate roaches, but still I sat there waiting in line because you can’t beat it, you have to join it. I hope the fooker’s insurance give him lots of hell for claims and such. Idiot.

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 …
