If I Have An iPhone 4

God, everyone's on about the iPhone4...what's up, man.

Being a techy person (for work purposes only), I should be one of those who stays up the whole night, drive down to wherever it is that iPhone4 is launching, camp outside the mall just to reserve a space in a long queue of kiasu people. I should have an iPhone or a Blackberry or somefink like that.

But I don't.

WTF. I used to own an iPaq (I think that is what it is called - can't remember) which is a nice a phone but I couldn't wait to get rid of it. Seriously. I couldn't bring myself to ditch the phone because it cost me quite a bit of money so, I resolved to waiting for it to die on me....or at least give me a very good reason to throw it away.

During my kid's sports day, I dropped the phone and it wrecked the mic! HURRAYYYY!!!

I got myself a new phone - an old Nokia phone with absolutely no internet connectivity. The maids here probably have a better phone than me.

So, why all the hate for iPhone4?

It connects me to everyone and everything all the time...so much so that I can't get away when I need to get away. I mean, Skype is there, MSN is there, Internet is there, Twitter is there, Facebook is there, my blog is there....hell, my WORK is all there!

So, if I had an iPhone4, you would know when I visit the toilet, with Foursquare, you would know every single little move I make. You would know what kind of clothes I was wearing because I would twitpic it. I will also be updating my FB status messages like....ALL...THE....TIME.

And besides, it is all hyped up stuff, alright? I find it....superficial. I don't like all the superficial thing. I like things natural, simple, maybe a little bit exciting and all that but....seriously, I don't have to show off my iPhone-anything.

I don't like showing off...period.

But if you would like to show your stuff off, it's OK. Show it to me...but not an iPhone4, please.

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…
