Load Of Bull…Trying To Looking Younger Than You Really Are

I am not much of a looker, honestly speaking. Not much of a clothes-horse, either. When I was younger, I used to think that I look like a horse. Or Mickey Mouse with really sharp chin. Anyway, this is in response to Kopisoh’s note saying that she wants to be more stylo-mylo. There was one time I was quite sick…I think during Chinese New Year. So, not really in the mood to slap on ten-inch makeup, nose red, hair messy, kids running all around, wanna siow liao (close to being insane), that kind of look. Sick mah….. Someone came up to me and told me this…which really, I think, is very the no-sense lor. “Eh, why don’t you dress nicely? You look like your age lah! Look at your husband, so hamsem and young. You must dress nicely so that you look younger than him mah”. TNS! First of all, I wasn’t feeling very well (and been drinking left right center…New Year what!), secondly, he dress however he wants, I dress however I want lor. I think the sense behind why one should dress and make-up at all times is ridiculous. So superficial. Then she said, “You look at me! I am forty but then look like I am 29”, which is true, I have to admit. But on the inside? COME ON! She look like 29 but is irresponsible towards her child, selfish and shallow. And besides, I think dressing wise, it’s all phony stuff….which is something that I shun like crazy! The moment you try to fit me into a certain mould that I have to adhere to, I cabut (run away)! Sorry, man. That’s why I change my profile picture so many times. In some pictures, yes, I look good. In some pictures, I don’t. I don’t want to haggle over these type of things because it’s a waste of time but while I like to post pwetty-pwetty pictures of myself up (who doesn’t, right? show me someone who likes to post UGLY-UGLY pictures of themselves) but I don’t want to mislead people into thinking that I look damn kow young, so super hot sexy, very stylo…no, that’s not me lor. And besides, I don’t see the reasoning behind trying to look younger than you really are! What’s wrong with THAT? If I am 12, make sense that I look like 12. If I am 49, make sense that I look like 49. WTF?! So, it’s wrong to look your age? If you’re 39, you should try to look 25. If you’re 25, you should try to look like you’re 9?! People who wanna try to look younger than they really are should….you know, get a life. Or find a new life in a place or country where cosmetic surgery is cheap…like Korea or Japan. (Please don’t get angry if you’re a Japanese or Korean, correct me if I am wrong, please). To me, dressing and make-up is all a personal preference. You do it if you like to do it and make you feel good. If you don’t feel like it, you have every fooking right to NOT DO IT. End of story. That’s why I give the make-up artists and managers a helluva time when I used to sing. “You cannot go out with your clothes like that!”, or “Your eye-shadow don’t match your grown”, or “Please don’t wear that pair of shoes anymore” or “Your skirt must be shorter”. Oh, purleezzz!!! Stuff it. So what I want to look my age when I am sick or when I don’t feel like it? At least I am real because I wanna be real. This is the real Marsha and whatever online persona that I have created online, that is where it ends. It’s just an online persona, OK? And besides, if people feel like they cannot step out of the house without make-up or nice clothes on, then let them be. But personally, I don’t let people dictate how I look and feel.

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 …
