Music Is Me



I don't know why but it seems that many people around me have been telling me that I remind them of music. That, in itself, is not the surprise. It's as if they got together and in a couple of days, 7 people told me that when they think of me, they think of music. o.O (And no, it wasn't me going around asking, what do you think of me).

OK, fine, yes, I am so in love with music that I like music across of genres...jazz, ballads, pop, hip hop, techno, rock, classical....you name it, chances are, I like it. Except for real heavy metal. Even then, I liked Metallica...so, I don't know where I stand when it comes to heavy metal. Gotta hear it to decide.

So, I'm thinking that maybe I should go back to it but not to hard core, full-time performing (don't let the makeup and smile fool you, it's bl@@dy hard work!) but maybe to something more simple. Like playing my piano, or coming up with some music to express my feelings or something along those lines. The problem with that is that despite being a writer, I have the BIGGEST problem writing lyrics and expressing myself through poems.

I heard that some people write the lyrics out as poems and then modify it to fit the music. I don't know, really. If you have been a lyricist, please share some tips with me. Maybe it is because I do not have the 'open heart' which some people say is what you require to create something. Fear and insecurity is the enemy of Creativity. Hear Hear....

At this point, I am very sure music is 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…

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 …
