Why Do I Care?

Being slightly (OK, quite a lot, actually!) Zen-ish and a believer of peace, calm, power and strength in social fairness, people might wonder why I would care about Malaysian politics. Why, when i have enough to feed myself and my family. Why, when i do not need to?

In my house, everybody gets everything fair and square. I am very very particular about it. If one boy gets two pieces of chicken, the other gets the same. No more, no less, unless the other boy did not mind or did not want anymore. The concept is that both of them are treated fairly and mommy favors BOTH.

Do you get the picture?

Although I am not a lawyer, I believe that when my father asked me what course I wanted to study in college, I said law, there was a reason for that. No, not because I have a big mouth and no, not because I wanted power or make loads of money. I chose law because I hate injustice.

It is even in my Zen-ish belief that I can't sit there and watch one person bully another person without standing up and saying something about it.Can you sit there and pretend that is nothing is wrong when your conscience is screaming at you, 'SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT!!!!'

I can't.

Malaysia govt should not try to snuffle people out. Be open about things, stay positive and take every single criticism as a constructive one. They live in consistent fear of losing their power, their rights, their money...therefore, they try to shut everyone up with laws.

The whole twitter fiasco is a joke. If there is nothing to hide, there is nothing to fear. If there is nothing to fear, then what does it matter what people say?

There's a Chinese saying that goes like this, 'You have to know that you have not done anything wrong towards your God, your Land and your own conscience'. If that is true, then let people talk and it should be OK. Yes, there needs to be a law in place in order to ensure that there is peace amongst the races in Malaysia, true, but shutting people up, things are bottled up.

And you know what happens when people bottle up their feelings. You don't? Ask a psychiatrist.

We have been bottling up our feelings and true opinions for far too long. Maybe, just maybe, now is a good time to let them talk peacefully. Let it out. If we disagree, then we agree to disagree and we find a solution. I am pretty sure we can slowly find one that does not make either one go crazy.

That is how mature people handle problems on an every day basis.

BTW, why do I care? Because I have a right to care.

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…

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 …

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…
