Dear China

Dear China,

I truly sympathize with you and as much as I would like to say that I 'understand' your pain, frustration and anguish, I can't honestly say it without feeling like a fraud. I wish this kind of pain on not even the worst of enemy.

I would also like to say that it is with so much joy (in the beginning) to see our officials fumble, Malaysia coming under the microscopic glare of the world, and also top authorities saying one thing, meaning another, making U-turns with their statements and then turning silent while the world's top honchos get at them. I watched with great pleasure and delight, waiting to do my bit to pound them into splinters of the tiniest kind. They have never, never, never, NEVER, NEVER had to answer to anyone in the past.

Dear China, you may not know this because you have not lived all your life being told to shut up and F off every so often. You have your own set of political problems, I know, but some of our forefathers are from China and been told to go back to China even through we can't. We Malaysians believe that we can do better than this. So, it was an opportunity for us Malaysians to see them suffer in such an International fashion, learn something from it and then progress into a better nation.

But dear China, we have crews, passengers and pilots in MH370 too. We are trying our best too. I know you want answers....but so do we.

In as far as how they are releasing information and the methods employed by the authorities, together with some of the world's most intelligent and experienced people in the world, I shall withhold my opinion because I am no expert in this.

An expert I am not. But a human I am.

I am beginning to feel the sheer burden of trying to find, put together, being sensitive to everyone who is affected without divulging too much, too fast and too negligently.

This is just my take that...perhaps, you are demanding too much. I am not saying  that your pain, frustration and anger is unwarranted. It is! It absolutely is because I would not dream of being put into such a situation. EVER.

The glee to see our top authorities come under fire in this fashion has waned off. The whole tragedy have turned insane. 26 countries are trying to work together and if 26 countries are trying their best in handling it, do you not think that Malaysian officials are already trying very hard not to F up?

I only hope for the best, China. I hope that answers will come in a timely fashion and that it won't take forever. Let's not be rash. I particularly feel sorry for Malaysia Airlines because they are stuck in the middle of somewhere hard and somewhere even harder. They do not have the information that Chinese people are asking for, the military and all those involved does.

Why crucify Malaysia Airlines this way? I am not a MAS supporter but it has been one of the safest airlines in the world for a very long time and give them a break.

China, please continue to demand for answers from the authorities but don't turn everything against us, Malaysians or the people who are working beyond their own personal limits to find your answers. Remember that the world's most intelligent people have called it a 'mystery', something totally atrocious even to our aviation experts, a loophole we never thought was there.

Please don't start burning flags, bashing the Malaysian embassy or say that Malaysians are barbarians, dishonest and incompetent. Just like those in your country, we have our hoodlums. Just like in your country, we have people who shouldn't be at the top. Just like in your country, we have people crying deep into the night from wanting answers.

I am just thankful that these amazing people from all those different countries are chipping in. Without them, I can't imagine the scale of this calamity might have become.

I am sorry we are at this juncture at all.

Thank you, International Community,
Thank you,
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…
