Of Pet Puppies

I have always had a thing for cute things, people and animals. Don't we all? When I was younger, I brought home one of the cutest puppies in the world and even had a hand in naming the pup, Nikoe. The puppy was from a friend I knew from high school, his dog just had a batch. So, when choosing the pup, I chose the nastiest, naughtiest and most rowdy one. LOL.

Oh boy.

Anyway, once I brought the puppy home, that was the end of the story because raising the pup-turned-dog was HARD. It was hard work because the damn dog would just run out of the house and come home with his coat of hair caked in mud and...I don't know what else. We didn't have dogs like maltese or toy poodles back then. It was either a dog....or a dog.

If you have had a pet in the past, you would relate to the fact that if you found it difficult to deal with the dog's behavior, you would tune out. I did. But that was when I was a teenager when there is so much more out there to have than taking care of a dog. So, everyone else had to deal with the dog that I brought home.

Having kids is different but more or less the same. The commitment is so much bigger and heavier, of course, not that the life of a dog is of less magnitude. My heart broke for a couple of days after finding out how Nikoe died. Wasn't very nice way to die, honestly speaking.

The thing with kids and dogs is this - if you are in it, you are in it.

And that is why, despite falling in love with so many puppies along the way, I have refused to commit to a single puppy. I tried things out with my friend's dogs and OMGGGGGGGGGG....the dog scared me half to death by running out of the house. My thought was HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO ANSWER TO MY FRIEND IF I CAN'T FIND THE DOG BACK? hahahaha

But the dog is safe and sound.

Anyway, whether I will have a pet or not in the future, I don't know. It depends on how much the kids are willing to lend me a hand in keeping the dog happy and well-fed. It depends on how much everyone else is willing to chip in in keeping the new family member.

This is me and my friend's dog, Mika, one of the most well-behaved dog EVEEERRRR


She is such a LOVELY LOVELY LOVELY LOVELY LOVELY dog!!!! Me and my kids are absolutely so in love with her. She listens to your every word but according to the owner, she has a diva attitude. I don't know, I have yet to see that side of her. =) My friend brings her over once in a  while.

The whole school holiday has been marred by Immigration issues. Been to the Imigresen four times todate. Seriously, and so far, I have only managed to make MY, yes, ONE, passport renewed. I have yet to bring the kids over to renew theirs. I don't understand why it is so difficult to just RENEW the passport, not make NEW passports. Sometimes, I am inclined to think that some quarters are trying to make it difficult for us folks to get out of the country. What, didn't someone once ask us to GET OUT if we are not happy? LOL.


Yes, yes, yes....I will yet spend more time here, waiting and hoping to actually get a number.

Anyway, as far as a pet is concerned, I MIGHT get one, not sure....it's a whole commitment thing, you know. Still thinking, actually. Waiting for a dog to completely capture my heart and send me catapulting backwards with love. XD

XOXO,
Marsha

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 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…

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 …
