Note To My 10-Years-Younger Self

If I could rewind time, I mean REALLY am permitted to go back in time and find my 10-years-younger self, what would I say to her...me...her. Well, turns out, I have a lot to say to this person and the things that i tell her might change a thing or two.

For instance, I would tell her that too much coffee, like five cups of coffee without a drop of plain water, in the system is not good for health. I would tell her that dust mites do exist.

That drinking herself blind thinking that she looked better and felt better is an illusion.

That she is good enough. Or too good for that man. That she should just build some bloody self-esteem. That nobody can give it to her on a plate.

That she should stick to singing. And then write. That her music and songs are great the way they are.

That the purple dress looks horrible.

That she can cook. Try it.

That she should listen to her parents and other people's advice when it is dished out. They are gems and she should use them to her advantage.

That sacrificing herself and her pride for someone who behaves like a b@ast@rd is not worth it.

That doing charity work is fantastic. It doesn't always have to be about the money.

That she shouldn't cry over that guy. He has a receding hairline now.

That she should focus on having more fun...because when she gets to be my age, you have to fight for fun almost all the time.

That she can live without all those material things, stop wasting money and put them aside so that I can have more holidays.

But seriously, if I had the chance to rewind the hands of time, I don't think I will. Where's the fun in knowing everything, right?

p.s. But I might tell her that she should hook up with a programmer and come up with a site that lets other people post 140 characters to their followers. I think that's the one thing I will tell her.

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…
