Wedding Furor

I have to run some errands but before I do that, I would like to share something shared by a friend-neighbor on Facebook. It's ludicrous and quite unbelievable, really.

So, this bride invites friends over to her wedding, right? And then the guest went and paid $100 (as much as she could afford) for two persons to attend the wedding. And then, after that, she got a sarcastic message on Facebook AFTER the wedding from the bride asking her why the amount paid was so little.

I was like.....???????.......

Look, the wedding is yours and the cost of the wedding is to be borne by the bride, groom and family. Whatever the guests give you is already a bonus. They are there to celebrate with you, to create an atmosphere. True, it is by tradition that guests give you money or gifts when they attend your wedding but ALSO traditionally, the guests do not shoulder the responsibility of covering the cost of your wedding. Walau-eh....better not to go to the wedding because....there is no reason to impose upon the guests the cost of your wedding...because it is NOT THEIR WEDDING, it is YOURS. LOL.

First of all, nobody really likes to attend weddings, it's bothersome, you have to pay money for cheap entertainment, you have to mingle around with people you quite possibly don't know, you have to dress up to the nines when you would rather curl up on the sofa with your loved ones watching re-runs. There are better ways to spend an evening.

Second of all, would she rather have an empty wedding reception?

Third of all, be appreciative people actually made the effort to come congratulate you on your new union. Wedding is not a business deal, and people who actually made a profit from it are purely accidental (most of the time, I hope).

This hit a chord with me because there was once a wedding that I went to, that we had to travel quite a distance to attend, which had a sort of 'internal discussion proposal' about how much we should pay in order to help the bride and groom 'make back' their wedding expenditure. It was, perhaps, out of the kindness of their hearts but....anyway....

...this bride took it all the way to another new level, maybe? Here's the article. I think this thing should go viral. Hahaha


Good rainy morning to all of you,

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 …
