Catherine Zeta Jones Cracked Under Stress

If there was someone else's life I would like to have, it would have been Catherine Zeta Jones. This woman is da bomb coz she's beautiful, she's got amazing kids, has got a stunning body and is an amazing actress. I'm stopping here not because it's all I think of her, it's because I might sound like I have a crush on her. Anyway, it was a shocker for me to find out, first, that her husband had and overcame cancer. And then the crushing blow of her cracking under stress.

I have always been in support of people taking care of their mental health. We should all treat our minds the same way we treat our bodies. It's alright for us to say, 'Hey, stress got to me' or 'The world has been nasty to me, I need balance'. You have a stomach ache, you go to the doctor. You feel stressed out, you go to the doctor.

I've had friends crumble in the face of stress and me myself am a big victim of stress. What with work, home, kids, money, school, cooking, health, activities, friends, family...all in one life, damn it. Someone called me a Supermom the other day...hahaha....sweet girl. But let me set something straight.

I don't have a cape. I wish the cape enabled me to do everything without fumbling and everyone looks at me think that I can perform domestic stunts. No, stress gets to me too.

I was, a couple of years ago, also was shocked with a string of Korean celebrities taking their own lives...after finding out one of the most amazingly successful friend of mine ALSO did the same thing.

I mean, we can beat the crap out of stress, can't we?! Come on! Just do what Catherine Zeta Jones did. THAT takes balls. So, here's to Catherine's rapid recovery and return to the industry with more amazing movies!

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…
