Sushi Battle

In life, we must always try to learn how to do something new. That's how I learned desktop publishing out of nowhere. Well, I learned it from a VERY EXPENSIVE $#@$^& BOOK from MPH. And then I bought another similarly expensive book for another reason....Adope Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. Please take a moment to imagine a writer / law graduate trying to GET THE COMPLICATED PROGRAMS to work in the wee hours of the morning? But I never give up. I don't like losing (read: bloody sore loser. If I lose, it's somebody else's fault....ALL THE TIME!), so I persist. All of a sudden, I want to learn how to make sushi because my mother-in-law's maid made damn nice sushi. If she can make sushi, then I can make BETTER sushi. Let me tell you folks.....it was sooooooooooooooo NOT better. Disaster was the word. Did I tell you about how I hate to lose? Yeah? OK, here it is again....I hate to lose. I could be all kinds of things but loser is not one of them. I rolled a total of 7 disasters before I resorted to YouTube (shoulda done it sooner) and HAHAHAHA....you see, my mother-in-law's maid don't have Youtube, man. Mah man!!! 8th pieces of seaweed on, lo and behold, it looked half decent....except that something is wrong with the vegs. They keep slipping out. Buggers. I go back to Youtube for another video and so you've got to PACK IT REALLY TIGHT!! Why didn't the first video say so??? Moron. I'll sue the fugger. With rice in my hair, I finally made half-decent sushi. Hehehehehe. Please....just applaud. Just gimme five claps. One clap? p.s. please read in jest. I lose all the time, ok? And I live. :-)

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 …
