Bare A Boob Advertisement In Malaysia A Possibility?

The word is perplexed
Being in the marketing and advertising industry, I keep my eye out for almost everything commercial. I know it's a boring job, but someone's gotta do it!! Hence, it kinda irks me to see that the government of our country is a little tight on some front while lackadaisical on others. Quite an unfair thing if you asked me. 
I mean, I have a friend who works in a large tobacco company and he sometimes laments to me that advertising and marketing is ONE HELL OF JOB when you're working in a tobacco company in Malaysia. You're not allowed to do anything....period. Nothing. No pictures, no adverts, no online marketing...nada. Zilch. Huge big NO!!
I am not condoning anything here but you see, because I know why tobacco companies are not allowed to be advertise here. Of course, I do....I'm not eight.I know it's because smoking kills painfully and slowly. Whilst that is true, I think we should apply a blanket rule over other industries as well but this is not the case. 
So, here, the cigg companies can't advertise at all. Not only that. If they want to continue selling ciggs in Malaysia, they are forced to (no compromise) scare their consumers to hell and back with absolutely repulsive pictures of rotten organs, dead babies, red, scaly skin, cancer-eaten dead body parts, etc. 
Why not force other companies to do the same? You forbid them to advertise and force them to scare their customers off? Once again, while I don't condone anything, I think is just a little unfair. 
It's like telling people that reading is good but raising the price of books and magazines!
Movies: watching moves promotes sexual crime, obesity, violence and street gang activities
The cinemas here suck as well because....well, here, we have to give an ENORMOUS thank you to the hard-working people behind our censorship board. Some Westerners come here and to waste some time, they head to the cinema only to come out and say, 'Hey, you know what? We're gonna have to check that one out again when we go back to the States. The movie was choppier than a speed boat ride. I don't know what the hell went on back in there, man!'
There you go. 
And you know what I hear in my head? The gleeful (and evil) laughter of alcohol companies.....MUA HA HA HA HA HA!!! Think....Voldemort. Again.....MUA HA HA HA HA HA HA... (echo echo echo).....
These companies have absolutely no obstacle to climb over whenever they want to promote a new concoction and they have no boundaries to toe too...imagine that! It's so smooth-sailing that they might as well have been selling a modem....or a nail clipper. They can even use suggestive taglines, headers, such....refer below.....
...and not get into trouble. 
Alcohol: Makes one very obnoxious, promotes violence and overeaction, encourages sex with strangers, raises stats on teen (or adult pre-marital) pregnancies, halluciations, and sleep driving. 
Before I go, I would also like to say that I pity some large lingerie and undergarments companies here. I wonder how many hoops they have to hop through to get an advertisement out. Or.....imagine Victoria Secrets (I know, yum yum!) putting on a full page saucy advertisement in The Star. 
Lingerie: Promotes rape makes someone look sexy. What more can I say? FYI, a white t-shirt is considered sexy over here, alright? Don't say I didn't warn you! If you're raped and you were wearing a white t-shirt, dang it all to's your own bloody fault someone can see your bra strap, lady!
Glory be the day! And then...the men undergarments factory will follow along (drool drool!!!)
Oh. Where was I? Underwear, of course. Sorry, my imagination got the better of me....anyway, yeah. I wonder.

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 …
