Puppy Love...Not

Cute labrador retriever


Becoming a mom is a big responsibility. Well, OK, becoming a parent is a big responsibility, therefore, one should not go into it just because of selfish reasons.

If you want to bring a new life into this world, then you have to be willing to make sacrifices. It is inevitable. Some people have kids because it is just the way it should be. For some, because of pressure from parents, friends or society. Others think that kids are just cute. They want to have one too.

Well, having kids because of pressure from others; think about it, OTHERS are not going to be the one taking care of the kids. You are.

If one has kids just because kids are cute....well...what can I say? They are. :-) But they grow older, you know. And then what? They are cute no more and you don't want them anymore?

Even more deplorable are the ones who have kids because they want to tie their boyfriends down. Trust me, I have known some people like that...quite personally. When things don't work out on the relationship front, what do they do? They run off to GET BACK the life and youth that they have lost.

Look, kids are human beings. It is inhumane to have them and then not love them with all your heart. That is your responsibility. They need love in order to have confidence. Even if you can't provide them with a big mansion, a business that they can take on, overseas education, Nintendo toys and expensive clothes, you have to have the heart to love them and take care of them.

That is what being a parent is about.

Recently, in Malaysia, there is a spat of youths ending up pregnant because they had sex with their boyfriends. And then dumping the babies in rubbish dumps. WTF, right?

Anyway, recently, I was entertaining the thought of having a puppy. My niece got one and the darn thing is SO BLOODY CUTE!!! Gosh....

I had the maturity of giving myself a little bit more time to ponder about it. I thought and thought and thought....no, I will not get a puppy. Not because I don't like having one, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE to have a puppy with me but I know that I cannot and will not be able to give the puppy my full love and attention...at the level that it deserves.

I believe that if I have a puppy, I will not get angry when it poops on the floor or pee on the sofa. I will patiently teach the puppy the right things to do. I will not ask the puppy to go away or smack its backside. If I have a puppy, I will also not mind if there is hair all over the place and slobber on my keyboard.

But I know I can't. I don't want hair on my yoga mat.

So, the humane thing to do is to say.....no, I can't love the puppy with all my heart at this point in time. It wouldn't be fair to deny the puppy complete love.

But gosh, I really want a puppy....

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 …
