A Month Going Without WHAT?!

I am all for, you know, the whole Zen living thing, being simple, yoga, exercise, eat right etc but the notion of having to go a month without television, radio, music...and *cough *cough *up *blood my devices and phone would be an atrocious idea. Oh, I am in such a polite mood, am I not? =)

But this man kind of made it through the ORDEAL experience of getting by the whole month without television, radio or I suppose any other distracting entertainment and I have to give KUDOS where KUDOS is due. OK, so it was selective elimination, he wrote but still. That is an incredibly hard feat to beat in the modern world that we live in today.

I thrive, no, my work....no, wait, my LIFE thrives on the fact that nearly everything is borderless with the internet. Perhaps, I would have to admit that THAT is the reason why we suffer today - the inability to actually carry a proper conversation with your friends without bringing up his or her latest Facebook status update. The inability to sit through dinner without wondering which celeb tweeted what. The astounding silence that rings in a room when there is NO WIFI!!!! NO WI-WHAT?


I can't imagine that. NO.

And no WaLaiToi? No KBSWorld? No EOnline?


Now sugar, I can probably live without. I don't know, when I was younger, I had run-ins with an eating disorder because I felt like I was the fattest animal to roam the planet all the time even when I was wafer thin. I didn't know the name then but I know it to be anorexia now.

Don't worry, I am still alive and well....kinda....most of the time so, I am more aware of what it can do to people. Therefore, you can safely conclude that I lay off sugar like I lay off cockroaches. So, I can probably do the NO SUGAR challenge....except that, what do I put in my Nescafe now?

Let me negotiate with my inner being for a while to see if planting one small dash of sugar into my morning drink warrants sending me to the gallows for the sinners of everything healthy.

And in the meantime, rock on, folks. Rock on. And maybe sleep well too.

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…

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…
