I'll Never Be Beautiful Enough

Q: What kind of girl do you want?
A: The perfectly beautiful one

Q: Why do you still stay with her when you can't stand her?
A: Because she's gorgeous.

Q: How come you are so fascinated by that woman?
A: Have you noticed her legs?

Q: What makes a woman beautiful?
A: Long legs, beautiful smile, tiny waistline, big bust, long hair, etc

Is it any wonder that throughout my years of growing up that I never once felt like I was going to be beautiful enough? Maybe that is the reason behind my (insane) hatred for Megan Fox...well, I think her marketing concept is ditzy, though. But at the end of the day, this is how superficial men and women are. The attack is not on men alone, but women is pretty much the same. We want handsome men, tall, with money, if possible with a mansion, who is loving and caring, understands our needs but also drives a Jaguar around.

*roll eyes*

There was once a man who told me that he thought that I was beautiful and I burst into tears. No, seriously, because deep inside me, when someone tells me that I was beautiful, the spotlight would instantly be turned towards all the ugly things that I could think of about myself. I can't help it, I grew up with this.

People grow up and learn a few things or two about being beautiful. At the end of the day, I have failed to notice all the beautiful things about me that has nothing to do with what people can see with their eyes. I have many beautiful things inside of me that people can feel with their hearts instead.


And that is part of the reason why I have denounce all superficial things...not that I don't still like pretty clothes and make-up but I have more or less accepted myself for what I am and finally think that, 'YES, I AM BEAUTIFUL'.

That is because one person may think that Jessica Alba is hot, another might think she looks cock-eyed in some photos. So, physical beauty is very subjective. But when you are beautiful on the inside, it is universal. Like kindness, being caring, ability to share, friendliness, a smile and friendship. It is when you are beautiful in that way that you are universally beautiful to almost everyone in your life.

So, yes, I may never be beautiful enough for some people but I am beautiful enough for the people I love, care about and that is enough.

Smile because it is the most compelling beauty EVER. Reach out to your friends and help them even when it goes unappreciated. One day, they will. Forgive people and your enemy for their mistakes because they are going through a journey too. Accept your friends for who they are because they are here to complement you, not compliment you.

And finally, be beautiful on the inside because that is THE ONLY WAY to forever be beautiful.

But let's have one for the road! :-PPPP

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…

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.

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…
