Hammy, Sweet Sour Chicken And Pork Knuckles

The kids are so in love with the hamsters despite the fact it has been two weeks since we got them. I am glad because I mentally gave the kids about three days to get over the fact that they have pets. But they have been consistently looking after, checking, feeding and playing with the hamsters. Looks like the hamsters are here to stay. =)


The kids love to place the hamsters in this transparent globe thing. Honestly speaking, I love it too! Coz they are just too oofing adorable!! One son even tried to kiss the hamster through the globe thing. Go figure. Haha

Now, onto my other love...cooking. You'll see why it's so hard for me to lose weight...


Sweet and sour chicken. So hard to lose weight. Promise not to make this too often. And the funny thing is that the kids don't usually like anything sour despite me sweetening it up with honey. But this....they can't resist either. You can actually be very flexible about the ingredients so, since I had baby corn and carrots in the fridge...ah well. Otherwise, I would add pineapple, green pepper and tomato into the mix, but I didn't have that.

I am a very 'fresh ingredients only' kinda person.


And this is my other weakness....Dark Soya Pork dish with Eggs. Sigh.....I made some soup to go along with this as well and it was yumminess. Like I said, the kids don't like anything sour so, in their portion, there's no vinegar but I topped mine with vinegar. Yums....

Now, back to losing weight. Shaking my head now....almost impossible.

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…
