Did not go to the rally today...

...wishing I did because the scene today was what I wanted to see during Bersih 3.0 whereby I was chased off like never before.

For those of you who have chastised me for going for the previous rallies and had this conversation with...

Her: Why would anyone want to go for those rallies, I don't know
Me: Because we are fighting for everyone, including you...
Her: No, no, no...please don't say you are fighting for me too, thank you.
Me: ....ok....

For the longest time, we were fearful. Maybe she is merely a teen, all of her ** years worth of INTELLIGENCE, she has never felt the frustration that we have felt. We were called second-class, felt like punching a wall, felt disappointment, shutted up (I know, I know there is no SHUTTED, Go away grammar-Nazi) and then considered migrating to another country.

I won't name people or get specific but what really turned this fence-sitter around was when I dealt with both sides of the divide and found the discrepancies deplorable. One, offering me more than I asked for without me asking for more (can we say vote buying here?), the other totally pummeled my price down. I had my blog banned because it was considered 'dangerous' enough to cause a racial rift. I mean, like come on! WTF.

Anyway, the haters will never feel the kind of unity we feel during these mass rallies. When we are going about our daily lives, we are surrounded only with people who are familiar with our language, community, lifestyle, and probably have similar income. Yet, it is so beautiful to see and feel the surge of unity during these gatherings, to show that we are not divided.

So, she will never hear the voices of everyone singing the National Anthem like they fucking mean it any time during her lifetime. She will never wave a Malaysian flag like a friggin' boss and feel it in every fiber of her being. She will never feel the wave of pride of being a part of a country. She will never feel the positivity and courage vibrating from tens of thousands of human beings fighting for a fair country. She will never feel as loved and accepted as a human being.

Gee, after writing that....I kind of feel sad for her. Poor her. LOL!

And as a side note, I want to give PDRM the credit today for cooperating with the people (although it might have been for other reasons but I don't care) and letting the rally take place and help keep everything organized and peaceful. See? We are moving in the right direction, IMHO.

Happy Saturday, everyone!

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 put it

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 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 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 …
