Amateur

Sigh…it’s true. Whenever you have people who are more skilled at something and you’re interested in joining them just to test-drive your own competence, nobody wants you in! *shaking head* Skydiving I’ve always thought it would be cool to skydive so a friend asked me, ‘If there’s one thing you want to do in the world, what would it be….you know, before you die?’. So, I said, “Skydiving” My friend went: PUA HA AHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!! Aiyo, come on lah, be realistic a bit, can or not? I mean, something that you really actually want to do, not be scared to bits to do lah, heylow! Me: But I really want to do it. Friend: Bring a shovel, then. Me: Why lah? Friend: Use it to peel you off the floor of the plane first lah! Mahjong Never been good at it but a lot of my family members are. So, one time, they were playing three kakis, right? And then one of them want to go to the loo, wash hands, check on daughter and said, “Eh, look for (my sister)…ask her to take over my place for a while. I offered. Me: I can, I can. I sit down and play for a while for you. If I lose money, I replace. Brother (one of the players): Aiyo! Chi (sister, in Hokkien) cannot lah, you! Marsha: No, I can, I can. I know how to put the pieces together only…can. Cousin (also one of the players): Cannot lah, after you eat char-wu! (think that I win but actually I did not) Drinking Games I used to be really good at all these drinking games…don’t have to ask why lah, right? Those 5-10-15-open-close games….that’s a piece of cake for me! I can play dice too and that chi-chi-cha-bom-bom-ba malimalihoom thing too! But then, during a recent season, met up with an old friend who was partying with some of his friends…these are hard core people we’re talking about. So, I saw them playing and I kepoh wanna play. I check my dice after shaking them up, I check and check and check to make sure I got the correct numbers, right? My friends started yawning. Friend: Oy! Where got people see and count like that wan lah??! People shake one time, see one time only wan lah? Oh. Izzit? Paintball A friend is a regular paintballer (No such word, but do I care?) so, it looked kinda interesting. Actually, I’ve wanted to take up the game but then was turned off when one of my girlfriends came home with blue black marks the size of a beer mug on arm. I was thinking, where in the world do you find a paintball that large?? Is it even legal to do this? And then recently, met up with another friend who is a regular at paintball. I say I wanna try too lah….again. This time for real. I mentioned this twice…once to that friend and one more time to my cousin. And they’re response was…. Friend: Er….wait. Let me find some amateurs and I’ll organize something for you. Cousin: Aiyo! You so scared, what kind of position are they going to give you? First thing you do there is find a tree and hide….until the game also over lah.... CONCLUSION I think I’ll just stick to writing stories and punching at the keyboard. p.s. To those friends and family members who were surreptitiously mentioned in this blog post, NNNNAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! *stick tongue out* I bet I can type faster than you! :-)

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…
