Childhood Food


I think everyone's got one...or two hot childhood fave home-made food. I've got too many coz just like everyone else, I happen to think that my mom is the best cook EVA! EVA EVA EVARRRR...

But she doesn't cook much now coz she says that it is tiring for her to cook and besides, all her kids are no longer living with her and she thinks it is a waste of time to cook for just 2 people. I think that is a complete waste of talent.

Anyway, I'll name two of my favourite childhood food. One, is fattening as hell sugar-coated donuts. I know they're sinful as anything you can ever imagine. All that sugar and all that carbohydrates. But when you are a kid, you don't worry so much about how much weight you put on or if your backside is going to sag. It more or less happens around the teenage years, if I do remember correctly.

The second one is another sinful indulgence....buttery pancake. It has to be with lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of butter because that is the only way you are going to make the outer edges of the pancake savory and crispy (we always eat the outsides first - all around it).

When we come home from school, the smell of donuts being deep-friend in a pool of oil or pancake simmering over low heat in the kitchen often send us kids into a frenzy. We pop into the kitchen every so often to ask, 'Is it ready yet?' and if we get really impatient, my mom would have to bring them out to the dining table and then run back in to finish more batches. As we wolf them down, mom replenishes them. Sometimes, we leave poor mom with nothing.

Terrible kids, we were. :-)

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 …
