MH 370's Disappearance Keeping Everyone Hooked

To say that the weekend's been depressing would be kind of an understatement for most of us who are glued to our devices and internet to keep up with the news. So, have they found it? Did MH 370 veer off course and land somewhere safely? Is everyone OK?

You are not being paranoid, in case you think you have gone nuts, scanning though the news despite not having a relative on the flight. Most of us are trying to keep optimistic and stay calm, we are trying to have some hope every time some debris is said to have been found and it turns out negative. No debris = hope.

Things like this happen, without reason, it happens. It's called Shit Happens.

No explanation and no way out of them. But the thing that really scares people is the thoughts that run through our heads every time CNN comes up with their 'BREAKING NEWS' sign. We will all continue to fly and travel everywhere, knowing that the odds of such things happening is lower than the risk of taking your car out to the supermarket or turning up your gas to prepare dinner.

It's this.


MH 0066 could have been MH 370 and if that was case, I wished everyone on MH 0066 was safe too.

I am sure I am not alone.

I have written before about how difficult it was for me to get my kids' passports renewed (to this day, they are NOT renewed because I was so frustrated, I kinda gave up, sorta) so, I don't get how people could get in and out of Malaysian immigration so easily when they are foreigners. Should I get my kids fake passports too because it seems easier to get your hands on fake passports than to renew legitimate ones?

And you won't belieeeeeeeeeevvvvvvveeeee the kind of attitude Malaysians have to deal with at the Immigration Department. They act like they own the whole system, which breaks down as and when they like (I could have been really unlucky but for the 4 times I took my kids there early in the morning, the system broke down right before or during lunch hour). That's half a day wasted. For nothing. And we deal with conceited attitudes of the officers, like they keep us at ransom. Like if we don't like their slow working ways, we can just take our shit and leave. Like we are asking them for a favor.

I hope the world will now have a long, hard look at all their immigration laws and procedures.

Some might say that this is wishful thinking (considering the fact that many people have started saying it 'crashed') but I hope for a miracle. Something that movies are made of.

Love,
Marsha

p.s. It is also sad that the issues of 9/11, terrorism and religion is now linked to MH 370's mysterious disappearance. =( True or not, I would hate to have their fate linked with such gruesomely hateful acts.

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…
