Thinking Of Going HK

I've mentioned before how if given a chance to work and live in HK, I won't. It's not that I have anything against Hongkies, I just prefer the space that I have here in Malaysia, the land, the air, the more courteous people (most of them, anyway), the better food (I'm biased but Hongkies visit Penang and they fall in love), and generally speaking, the lifestyle.

We may get frustrated with the more languid way of doing things here (the unker char kuey teow is slower than the people in HK) and HK people are FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRR more efficient. But you know, I don't want to live a pressured life like that.

But I love their efficiency. You order wan tan mee and two minutes later, it's there! Like WALAUUUU!!

So, it's kinda funny that I am thinking of going to HK again...for some reason. Like my sub-conscious mind is telling me to go there and have some HK-style fun.

Hhhmm....don't know. Do I really want to be pressured into walking at the speed of an LRT train in Malaysia? Seriously, they walk sooo fast! Maybe I just want to see the speed of life there to appreciate the slower pace here. Maybe I just wanna be taken out of the conundrum of life and be put in a situation whereby I can see things....just watch things and not doing anything in particular.

Hell, isn't that what everyone needs every once in a while? :-)

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 …
