3 Things That Made Me Really Happy As A Child


Daily Challenge asked me what were three small things that made me really happy as a child or teenager. Hhhmmm....

I really can’t remember much about what I liked as a child but as a teenager, I can. DUH. I am becoming senile.

Anyway, here are the three things.

1. TV shows and Singing
Yes, even as a child, my first love was singing. I remember my mom had this Teresa Teng cassette (yes, for music, back in those days, we have CASSETTES, not CDs) and I remember memorizing most of the songs from very young onwards, without knowing what they meant. I don’t speak Mandarin, that’s why.

TV shows, for very obvious reasons. I remember shows like McGyver, Knight Rider, Gem the cartoon, Care Bears, Tron, Thunder Cats, She-ra…etc. OMG. I am OLDDDDDDD!!!!!!!

2. Sports and dancing
I was completely into sports. Netball, basketball, handball, badminton, squash….so much so that I would make a piece of charcoal ashamed of its color. Dancing is the same thing. Music is in my blood. For some reason, even when I wasn’t too good a dancer, I was selected as the cheerleader caption. I don’t even know some of the cheerleaders well, in fact, but since they chose me, might as well. Looking back, our cheerleading moves were lame as hell compared to the kind of moves that they do at cheerleading competitions these days. Ours were L.A.M.E. So lame that I don’t want to talk about it.

3. It said there small things, right? OK, fine. My comb.
This is embarrassing but let me explain why I love my comb. Well, I loved my comb and my mirror. After saying it here, I am gonna make a run for it and end the blog post, OK?

I use the comb as a mic in front of the mirror to give my thank you speech.

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…
