Get No Love When They Grow Up

I remember a long, long, long, long, loooooooooo.....ng time ago when my kids were so easy to please. In order to work, all I needed to do was to switch the TV on and slide a Barney CD into it and off they go! Bless the purple dinosaur....as dumb as it is. To make things worse, it's got one of the sorriest excuse of a theme song that goes somewhere along the lines of you loving me and me loving you and we're all a big effing family or somefink. OK, fine, it was lovely and easy to teach the kids to sing. How wrong can you get, right? And then there's also Steve with his cursed green striped shirt. Actually, I didn't Steve was dumb coz he was, personally, someone who was witty and a bit of wise-crack, actually. I remember he impersonated Elvis one time. It was lost on the kids but he was a hoot to the parents! But honestly, he is either blind, sick or totally off the rockers. Blue is right there, duuuude! Right there! Her a-s is sticking right out of the sofa....oh, come on! But the kids love it, of course, coz they were way smarter than Steve. Compared to this, Blue's Clues and Barney look like humans....geniuses. This one made absolutely no sense - Teletubbies. For some reason, the producers and creators got the notion that kids love aliens and a sun with a face of a coo-ing baby on it enthralling. Teletubbies were the craziest (sh-ttiest) thing on children's TV. introducing the fat duffasses....with no brain. Believe it or not, although they said that the purple alien is actually a male, he is a cross-dresser! He loves tutus and handbags, hats and shoes!! I don't know what they were trying to convey to the kids, man. I have nothing against gays or anything but aren't we introducing something like a little too YOUNG!!?? There are many others....like Dora, Diego, Tweenies, High 5, Sound music factory, etc. Then the other day, they saw a clip of Diego on TV. And this is how the conversation went. Son 1: ....and then he's swinging very hard on the rope, his butt itches and he tries to scratch it while swinging and then he falls....(sound of oooooooooohhhhhhhhhh.....) and splat Son 2: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! That's sooooo funny. I hate Diego. He asks the stupidest questions. Son 1: Yeah yeah....and then Sonic comes into the picture and plants a bomb in his stupid bag or something. When he's looking for his binoculars, it explodes in his face. Me: Ahem. I thot he went splat. Silence. Son 2: Yeah, but he didn't die. Oh, and then Mario and Luigi comes over gives them a shrinking mushroom. Son 1: HAHAHAHAHAHA!! And then he eats so much and disappears. Me: Sigh....the love. You guys used to love Blue's Clues, Teletubbies, Tweenies, High 5, and all that so much, you know. Son 2: URGH, mom! Please!! They're so LAME!!! Lame lame lame. Stupid lame! Me: Well, I feel the need to remind you that....you....had....a BARNEY DOLL!!!!! (evil smirk) Son 1 and 2: EEEEUUUUUUUGGGHHHHHH!!!!! Mom!!!!!!! Me: Hehehehehe....

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…
