JJ & my kids

About two years ago, when JJ was still with Rudy, working the Morning Crew for Hitz.fm, my kids and I spend most mornings during our drive to school listening to the antics of JJ and Rudy. They would guffaw at the jokes while I maneuvered my way past cars, showing my middle finger at rowdy drivers, cursing under my breath when someone cuts me off. I don't think they understood all the jokes but they laughed whenever JJ cackles. :-) There STILL are some posters of these two dudes around promoting the Gotcha prank calls. I've seen them. I might as well have announced that I am taking their Nintendos away forever when I told them that there will be no more JJ and Rudy. Now, it's JJ and Ean. 'Who?? They fired Rudy?' I assured them that this wasn't the case. The way I am connected to JJ is funny because it's multi-layered like lasagna. One layer after another. There's the cousin who is married to a man who used to go to school with JJ (I think). Then there's me, a blogger, who, like, out-of-the-blue, connected with another mom who reads my blog and we became friends in FB. Then 'anothermom' knows my cousin and also another a friend I've not seen for the longest time. Turns out, 'anothermom' knows JJ intimately. So, there is this whole 'lineage-like' thing going on. Hahahaa. The world is funny and small that way. My cousin, the one married to someone who knows the man, held a birthday bash for her kid and turns out, JJ was there. I introduced the kids but they were too shy to say anything. My elder son is a bigger fan and upon greeting and introduction, he dared ventured out with a 'It's a pity you fired Rudy'. I thought that was brave considering he was tongue-tied. A couple of times, he came over and asked me, 'What do I say?' and I just went.....'er....dono. Just smile, I guess.' So we smiled a lot. After that, we just went home. As we reached home and I was parking the car, my elder son said, 'I can't believe we just met JJ'. I asked, 'Why didn't you ask him anything or talk to him?' Son said, 'But MOOOOOOOMMMM! I don't even know if he has a dog or anything!!' Oh. Quite true. hehehehe. But at least we got this picture. Of all days, I forgot my camera, only with my low-yar phone. So, at least we got this....LOOK! Damn good effect with bubbles some more. WALAU!! :-) All I can say is that he is a downright down-to-earth caring father and husband.

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 …
