Don't Criticize Malaysians

Actually, I don't even remember that Malaysia is approaching its Independence Day. Independence from what? LOL. My personal opinion? We would have been better off with Great Britain. Imagine. We are using pounds right now. Bigger than USD. Hahaha

Anyway, this is just a short observation. In general, Malaysians should never be criticized. You can't. It's too sensitive. It is precisely this culture that is going to lead it to its demise. If it isn't already demised.

In recent memory, I was working with some Malaysians (as opposed to working with people from other countries, which is what I have been doing for more than a decade now. Not just Americans, but people from Australia, Germany, Poland, Ireland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Korea) and it appears to me that Malaysians are always in a desperate need for people to butter things up for them.

It's great to have colleagues praise you and work with you in total agreement all the time but when I work with people from other countries, people question me. I got offended and mad sometimes. But I learned that that is how we grow and become better. We become accountable for what we do.

We are not prepared.

We are not prepared to face criticism. When we do, we:-
  1. Deny it, right off the bat
  2. Sue the shit out them
  3. Quit
  4. Insult them back
  5. Publish a status update on Facebook
  6. Tweet it
  7. Run off into the sunset and publish said picture on Instagram
As much as I would like people to think that I am f-g flawless and have never faced criticism in my life, I can't. But I think my experience tells me that I should stand there and listen. And pay the price. This is what humility is all about. No one is always right. No one is always wrong. If something is wrong, say you are sorry, correct it and move on.

I am trying to be really subtle here since we are approaching our country's birthday and all but I think we all know what I am trying to say. LOL.

The current legal slaughter against people who had something to say about our country is an example of how Malaysians typically do things. Supremacy should never be questioned. You will face the consequence of standing up to a supreme force if you dare question it.

If you dare say anything, you face sedition charges. If you search 'sedition' on Google right now, Teresa Kok's face will pop up in the search result.
In law, sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that is deemed by the legal authority to tend toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition.
In fact, this blog post might be considered Seditious too since I am already talking about sedition. It is seditious to talk about sedition when one is not in agreement with acting against sedition, no?

I am not being seditious lah. I am saying you should not criticize Malaysians. Read the title of this blog, please. So sensitive.

Sarcasm overload here but read it whatever way you like. I am late for work and am going to spend the day with work, mom and kids.

XOXO,
Marsha

p.s. Pleasant weekend ahead, folks.

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…
