I've Been A Lazy Pig

I used to turn to my blog for therapy. Yes yes yes...I know I sound delusional but ask any blogger and you will see that sometimes they treat their blog like a shrink. It's natural. Don't believe me? Start a blog.

Anyway, I've not been updating my blog so often these days because well...there's the issue of work and laundry, and kids, and cooking, and cleaning the floor, and answering emails, and replying to SMS, responding to instant messages....you know, the everyday thing?

Yeah, that's given. So, I feel like kind of in need of really good therapy sometimes but my fingers ache from too much writing all day, so, what do I do?

I turn to blogging...but a slightly different kind of blogging.

When I feel like saying very short simple things, I turn to twitter. When I have something longer to say that requires more than the 140 spaces given on Twitter, I turn to facebook. And if not, then I just turn to my phone, switch on the audio recorder and say something totally baffling like 'I think my toenails are too long and I can't find the blasted nail clipper. This is depressing me.'

But I think after all the time that I have spent on twitter and facebook, I still feel a kind of unexplainable emptiness in me. At the end of the day, a shrink is what I need. The others turned out to be just General Practitioners.

I need to let out in my blog after all.


p.s. Please read in jest because no, I am not going 'woo-hoo-hoo' on you. And my toenails aren't really THAT long. And that picture is not a picture of me dead. Just me plonking my head down on the table...my arm reaching out as far as it would go, with my phone's camera and snapping a really un-stylish picture of myself to prove a point. 

You can breathe now.

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 …
