Malaysia Day?

With Malaysia coming up, I feel that there is a need to write something about Malaysia. For those of you who do not know, Malaysia Day is yet ANOTHER day to celebrate Malaysia's many wonderful 'blessings'. Is there another country in this world that's got two independence day (or something like that)? I don't know for sure but maybe I will Google it up and see for myself.

I don't celebrate Merdeka or our independence day....never have. As an 'others' in this country, I do not feel there is any reason for me to worship the independence of this country. Independence from what and whom again?

There is a lot of difference between Malaysia and other countries....Americans may hate their politicians or Obama but they will proudly raise their flags and wave it around during independence day. The Brits are the same, Koreans and Singaporeans too, I believe. Hong Kong people, I am not sure. But in Malaysia, I would say that a large number of people will just let Merdeka and Malaysia day pass....just like any other day. But I speak for myself.

So, just like other Malaysia and Merdeka days of yesteryears, I prefer to wave flags like these ones. With the big balloon on top.


p.s. Please feel free to wave YOUR Malaysia flag because it is YOUR right to be patriotic, I will not think any less of you just because you want to show your love for our country. It is my right not to feel patriotic so, please do not think any less of me. We will be happier this way, trust me.

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…

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 …

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…
