I am one lucky bitch

I've just got to rattle this off of my chest before I resign for the day. It's late....and I have an early morning and perhaps, a longer day. 
I think I am one lucky bitch....and here's why. 
Bakery, market, restaurants, and myriad of different amenities and conveniences are merely 5 minutes drive away. 
Kids' school is 4 minutes walk away.
GIANT (for groceries) is 8 minutes drive away. 
The park (a rather nice but a little lacking) is 6 minutes walk away.
A friend's restaurant is 3 minutes drive away.
Stationery shop is 3 minutes drive away. 
Office is 0 minutes away. 
In-laws' place is about 12 minutes drive away.
I get to earn a living and raise my kids at the same time. 
I decide how I work.
I have a nice house. 
...and a nice kitchen. 
I continue to have new clients with new projects to work on (which also means that it's about time I learn how to outsource and trust other people) in this troubled economy.
I have friends who would come to my aid within a heart beat.
I have been successful in realizing a dream of working within my own rules and earning a decent income (could be more but then....let's not go down that road) when others are still striving to do the same in this horrible, horrible year.
My boys may be rowdy sometimes (TWO boys, DOUBLE trouble) but generally speaking, they listen to me, love me and would do anything for me.
I have clients who are absolutely in love with me and do things that even some relatives would not have. *ping me if you know who you are* :-)
Eventhough I am not an exceptional writer and yet people have faith in me and believe that I know what I am doing....they don't question me and ask me stuff like 'sure or not???' but they just tell me what they want and let me do my thing. And THAT says a lot. 
I am almost done with my piano....this childhood dream can finally be realized. :-) How many people actually realize their childhood dream at the age of 30-something. 
I've committed almost every conceivable sin that I have an inclination for without falling into harm's way so that I am in a better position to guide my kids (BOYS!) in the future.
But most importantly, I suddenly realize that I am one lucky bitch because, you know, in the face of what's happening around us, I am alive. I have one more day to live and one more chance to enjoy what earth has to share within me.

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 put it

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 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 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 …
