YES!!!!! She did it! The Battle Is Over!!!

I have to fuggin ssoooooo do this! I need to not just congratulate her but I have to kiss my sister's feet for doing this! She's just shown me....no, the world, that when there's a will, there's a bloody yellow brick road for everything. I mean, how many people can graduate from a degree....diploma....whatever it is but it was tough (I've seen the ENCYCLOPEDIAS that she had to read - it had to be PhD or something) doing it part-time. At thirty-something, she has to work, study, come home and sweep hair from the floor, sometimes cook (not very much, though), and on weekends she runs the hills....all those torturous stuff to do and still have the mind to study. I sit on my ass the whole day and complain that I am tired. When I was college, I sang, danced, partied and dated my way to a law degree. I should be ashamed of myself. In order to survive such a feat, there's only one ingredient in the cauldron....pure grit and determination. Well, two ingredients, then. Yeah, you KNOW you have to do it and you set your mind to it, no matter what is thrown your way. And she did it! So, to my younger sister who has always been sitting on the lower rung of the ladder just because I managed to rely on luck and the ability to bullshit to get my law degree, come sit with me on top. The view is really much better over here. Now let's wait for the other one to come enjoy the view.

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 …
