Sleepy Post

Am currently, yes, right NOW, extremely sleepy. So sleepy that I can't put my brain on to anything. You know when your brain is kinda slow (read: dead), writing serious stuff only makes it worse, right? I'm not alone in this right?

To take my mind away from my sleepiness, TADA!! Here I am!! I've researched a bit about sleep, actually, because sleeplessness runs in my family. Did you notice that I was trying to avoid using the real term, as in insomnia? That's because I'm paranoid that way. I am convinced that if I said or typed the word insomnia out, I won't be able to fall asleep at night.

Here are some facts about sleep that kind of opened up my eyes. Pardon the pun. Totally unintended.

The longest anyone's gone without sleep is 18 days, 21 hours, 40 minutes during a rocking chair marathon. (Like OMG!!!! 18 freaking days! And the guy didn't die?! But he reported blurred vision, slurred speech, memory loss and hallucinations. You betcha, crazy man! I hope it was worth it!)

Dreams don't necessarily mean anything and it is just a connection between sleep and consciousness. (I kinda agree but there was a particularly scary time in my life when I continued to dream of natural disasters every night. Night after night, there would either be flood, building collapse, earthquakes ((yes, in Malaysia)), and other occurrences that was beyond my control. I think that means that I felt that my life was out of control, no? Whateva.)

When ducks are in danger, they can shut half the brain up while the other half remain awake and stay focused on any possible danger. (This is way cool or what?!)

Scientists say that the biggest cause of insomnia is the 24/7 availability of the internet. (You. Don't. Say? I sooooo did not need a scientist to tell me that because I am on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, YouTube, Whatsapp on my bed right before bedtime. You think I DON'T KNOW that? But there's really nothing I can do about the tweeting. Add it to my list of life threatening addictions, I live dangerously.)

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…
