8 Years Younger

My client, Kumar, sent me sample after sample after sample, after sample after sample……and asked me to try this perfume, walk out and see what people around me say. And of course, ‘please drop a good word for me…the product when you get the chance.’ This perfume, Ageless Fantasy, when you wear it, it makes people think that you’re eight years younger. No, not eight-years-old….eight years YOUNGER. They use a blend of many different types of scents based on research on aromatherapy. Check their website out for more information. You can’t get it here in KL, actually, unless you’ve got a friend in New York or something. It’s taken me a long time to blog about this because I don’t get paid to write reviews and I don’t lie. I hate liars so, lying about a product is not my th’ng. Anyway, I am going to (finally) write about this because it’s about time and I’ve REALLY got something to tell you! :-) Ryan Augustine de Alwis! Confirm this. OK, I went out with Ryan to this place in TTDI, right? The place is teeming with gwai-lows (white foreigners), it’s one of their hang-outs. I walk in and sees Ryan standing near the bar talking to this guy…whathisname? Logan? Never mind. So, I came up to him, walking past some gwai-lows. Suddenly, a couple of them started walking up to me, sniffing at me. GASP! Yo, why are you sniffing at me? OK, I didn’t say that. I just stared at them, eye sockets popping. Excuse me, you smell nice. What perfume is that you’re wearing?” one of them asked. I said, “Er….it’s Ageless Fantasy. But you can’t get it here. My client sent them to me from New York. He frowns, ‘You’re sure it’s not (some other perfume. I can’t remember it because I’m bursting to tell Kumar)?” I shook my head, “I’m sure.” I smiled politely. Ryan turns to me and said, “Wow, you sure attract attention the moment you walk in.” I shrug. I ordered my drink from the bar and after mistaking the guy for someone I know, Ryan asked, “Guess how old she is.” He was pointing at me. God, Ryan, I thought. Please don’t say fifty-two because I’ll run outside and get myself hit by a car. He pauses and examines my face. “Twenty-eight?” Ryan goes Hah! I go…..Oh. My. God. I’m not gonna bother hiding my age now. I am thirty-six. Thirty-six minus eight is….? Twenty-eight!!! Hahahahaha! So, Ageless Fantasy DOES work, after all, eh? July is my birth month so, I am going to be celebrating my TWENTY-EIGHTH birthday this year. Hooray!!! :-)

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…
