Life Of Convenience

I tweeted this
m lucky. printer accepts files via email. DVD sms me whenever series arrive. my pork seller oso accept phone orders. damn lucky biatch me - on twitter

It's true. Darn lucky I am!

I just re-designed my own business card and decided to get it printed. This time in pretty-pwetty pink!! I don't know....there's a little girlie in me, I guess.

So, all I need to do is to email the pdf file to the printer, give her a call and tell her what kind of paper I want and when I can collect it. The next day, I collect it. Simple!

Then there's my TVB series DVD seller who SMSes me every time there is a new DVD arrival. I know it's a smart business tactic for him lah, but hey, whenever he sms me, I call him to let him know that I am heading over and how much money I am bringing (so that he can have the change ready for me). I head out and flick the car lights on and off to signal to him that I am there.

He runs out while I stop the car, open the car door, he passes me the DVD and change and I pass him the money. TADA!! Then I drive off. No need to find parking or anything. Brilliant, right? :-)

And then there's the pork auntie who passes around her business card. I tell you...really savvy. Sell pork also she has business card. It's written there - 'Pork Seller'. :-) Cute as hell. So, if I want to make char-siew for dinner tonight, I can SMS her or call her and she will reserve a part of the meat for me, which I can collect early in the morning too.

Sometimes, you have to be thankful for all these small things because life is tough, you know. When you have all these little-little things to be thankful for, be so.

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 …
