Never Been A Cat Person

After having two boys who are, by now, pretty grown up and think that Barney is a sissy dinosaur, I don't relish the idea of having to be responsible for anything else. No more babies. No pets, thank you.

But fate has a very funny way to kicking you in the rear end.

This morning, after sending the kids to their homeschooling center, I came home, parked the car, opened the door, step up, walk to the lift armed with my sardine sandwich and got the shock of my life when the lift began to make funny sounds at me.

I looked down on the floor of the lift and there it was...this black, furry thing sprawled there going 'eugh eugh eugh eugh eugh'. Well, it sounded like that. My first thought was 'a puppy in the lift!' So I carried the thing and decided to go from house to house asking around if anyone's lost or dropped a baby puppy. Not before calling a pet-savvy friend of mine, asking her what to do with the damn thing.

When she asked me what animal it was, I just said, 'I don't know. I think it's a dog. Or a cat. Or something in between. Or a rat. Do rats make the eugh eugh eugh sound?'

Anyway, it is going to be hard trying to get the apartment owners to admit that they have dogs in their homes. So, to the vet I went and it was there that the nurse told me that it was a black cat. Not dog. Bummer. I really prefer dogs to cats, you know.

So, it's a cat and my guess is that it's hungry. How do you effing feed a baby cat with its umbilical cord still hanging there with milk? What milk? Fek. So, after scouting around for a pet store (lo and behold, pet stores don't open early here in Malaysia. I just found out), I found a pet store selling the little-little (oh so cute) bottles and kitty milk.

I drove around for so long, forgetting that there is ONE LARGE ONE just around the corner. Proves that you don't really pay attention or remember anything until you need it or use it.

I force fed the thing...the cat don't know that the stupid tit thing is supposed to be sucked on, man!

At this point, I am not too pleased with the fact that I have to be responsible for this cat's life (don't have the heart to throw it away) but I think the kids are going to have a field day with the thing. Ok, fine. With the CAT...not thing.

As with everything in life, I think I'll just do the best I can with whatever that I have been given. And I believe in fate...that he found me and he was meant to find me.

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…
