My Poor Feedly RSS Feed

Sometimes I feel kind of sad whenever I check my Feedly RSS because over the years, I have subscribed to quite a long list of favorite bloggers. Nowadays, whenever I load the feed, I realize that I have to find more blogs to follow because a lot of those favorite bloggers have stopped blogging and sharing.

Admittedly, once upon a time, I considered it too. What with having someone flagging my old blog for being politically insensitive and all that (it wasn't REALLLLYYYYYY politically-motivated) because it was an age whereby Malaysia was not really prepared for free speech. Real free speech. Or freedom of having an opinion....and a blog.

So yes, I thought that I might as well stop or go anonymous or something because no one was really reading, anyway. I've lost my old blog.

But it was then that I received an email asking me 'How come you are not updating your blog anymore? Miss your posts!'

There, right there, written on my Karma sheet '1 life touched' and touching 1 life was pretty damn good to me!

Blogging, to me, isn't really about gaining popularity or making a name for myself (it used to be so and Good heavens, it became a burden) anymore. Sometimes, by sharing your life with others, it touches theirs or they can draw a comparison, draw a laughter or a smile. It might even help someone turn over a new leaf, who knows with the internet these days.

So, it makes me sad that some of these bloggers have stopped sharing their life with their readers or found blogging kind of pointless. I don't think it is pointless. Sure, you don't know who is reading it, someone might be judging you, criticizing you or think your blog posts are lame azz sh*t that they laugh over with their friends. If you post a picture, someone might be comparing a picture of you taken 12 years ago with a current picture just to see how fat you've become. LOL! I am laughing because someone shared this story with me and it IS real.

I remember listening to a talk whereby the speaker said 'So you're afraid that someone is judging you or criticizing you? Some years down the road, you will start thinking that you don't care that someone is judging you or criticizing you. Some more years down the road, you are sitting down in your living room, sipping tea, wondering about what you done with your life, you'll start realizing that people weren't really thinking about you, they were thinking about THEMSELVES.'

All those years wasted. Hahaha...

Me? I don't think I am going anywhere. And as great as Twitter is as a mouthpiece, I don't think it has the power to pull me away from Blogging.

So long as this blog gives me the chance to touch one life, one life at a time, I will trudge on.

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 …
