Flags Up, Flags Down

When talking about elections and posters, flags, banners, buntings, and whatever it is that people put up, it is OK for them to SPAM our place with those promotional stuff. Doesn't matter. Happens every time there is elections, isn't it? That was one of the grouses I have heard from people who prefer their communities clean from these things.

I agree.

After elections is over, those things must be removed.

So, this morning, as I was driving my kids out to school, I saw this guy taking down flags and banners....but only for a particular party only.

After dropping the kids off, I stopped and asked the person to please remove ALL flags and not just a particular party's flags. 

His response was this 'Oh, itu bukan kita letak punya'. I was a little pissed off because if you are going to remove these flags, might as well remove the other flags as well, right? So, I told him that he should remove ALL flags. 

But he explained that he wasn't instructed to do that. He was instructed to place the flags and then after the elections is over, to remove the flags that they have placed. That was his job. He is not authorized to touch any other stuff that other people have put up.

Oh, I see. 

So I said 'Terima Kasih!'

At this point, this is still all over the place. 

Especially this huge ass all-of-a-sudden-it-is-so-huge-and-it-is-in-your-face 'billboard'.

When are you going to get someone to remove that ah? Very eye sore la.

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 …
