The Hairy Thing

My client sent me hair through the post. Outside of Marsha's world, it is also known as those clip-on DIY hair extensions. Currently, she sells them here and is looking to expand, I think. To be honest, I've never dealt with fake hair before. I mean, I have....but not when it comes on a clip or anything. You should have seen how we tried to put the hair on!! Gord! The maid, in particular, was fascinated by it clipped it all the way over all my hair making me look like pontianak (ghost)! and then we slipped it to the side and then over the hair line....somehow I had to say that it was the most unnatural looking fake hair EVER!! I was wrong. And then I go to....hehehe....you guessed it....YouTube (but of course!) and discovered how to clip them. You're supposed to hide the sucker pins under your real hair, dudettes!! Oh. I see. Now I go make myself look and sound absolutely caveman. Anyway, you wouldn't believe it (and I don't do commercials) but the hair is really, really, REALLY soft. And the funny thing is that the shade is exactly the shade of my faded-out-auburn-black hair! So, when I clip it on right, it actually looked quite....hhhmm....interestingly real. I figured that it depends on how my actual hair behave on that particular day. The real hair and hair extension have to blend in together. So, when my hair is misbehaving, it won't go with the hair extensions. And my hair taming skills is....to say the least....shitty. Anyway, that's it, folks. Next time you see me, don't be surprised if I suddenly sprouted long hair. Vivien, if you are reading this....is this the way the hair is supposed to look? So scared that I am clipping it all wrong.

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 …
