Haze Haze Haze, Left Us In A Daze

My goodness, woke up on this amazingly positive Saturday morning, walked out the room, breathed (like every other normal human beings), choked and ran back into the room.

What the hell was that?!

I keep the windows in the kitchen open for circulation sake during the night. As much as I dislike waking up breathing up smoke, I dislike stale air just about as much. Maybe not but close enough. So, unbeknownst to me, smoke filled the house except for the air-conditioned rooms. BAD!

I went to the window and it was hazed up quite bad at around 8am in the morning but it cleared up some a little later on towards the day.

I hate to say this but this is not the worst that we have seen. I remember, there was one year when our homes filled up with so much smoke that we couldn't see past the sofa and had to yell each others' names to check where we were. It's horrible, this haze thing. 

Being not much of an agriculturally-educated-informed person, I don't know how no one has yet to find a solution to this problem. I mean, it is human-induced, right? As far as I know so, it is a matter of finding an alternative to their methods of doing stuff and...right? Not as easy? Heck, name me one thing that is easy. Nothing in life is easy. If it's easy, it is not worth doing or it is not a solution. 

But that is just my take. Someone please take up the challenge.

And in the meantime, Malaysians and Singaporeans celebrate this yearly event by cursing those darned people for causing this in as many languages as possible. I also celebrated by purchasing two air filters for the home and gone broke.

Anyway, we will be walking around like this for a while.

p.s. Karma, please get those ^&*$#@%* soon.

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 …
