A Weekend Update

It's a bit of a bummer for us right now because Malaysia's kinda going through this Monsoon season which means nothing but rain, rain and rain. Yeah, we are a sunnier, more tropical version of London and Washington DC.

It's a bummer because I love going for a short evening walk, before dinner, with the kids at the neighborhood park. Calming, relaxing and sort of a way to get away for a while, immersed with the people, the trees, occasional stray dogs here and there and also with my headphones and Spotify on, I am really in my own world.

Just a couple of days ago, there was a short electrical blackout at the apartment and this was what we dredged out to play together.

It was a simple board game that I used to play with the kids when they were younger and it is really kinda fun to play with them now simply because....they are quicker to derive at conclusions and better at the game of deduction? LOL

So, it is no more 'Mommy wins all the time'.

I was also prompted to draw something and it asked me, 'What kind of Pokemon would you be if we lived in a Pokemon world'

Well, yeah. Kinda embarrassed about it but I would be a pink Pokemon with no power. Actually, the original idea was that I would be a pink Pokemon with the power to make people smile, no matter how angry they were and it would disarm them and their destructive powers would be rendered useless.

You should have witnessed the hoots coming from my boys. 'That's what a 4 year old would say and be, Mom!!' complete with Face Palms.

Whatever. I am 4 years old then. LOL. Don't care and who wants to grow up anyway. haha! I hope I don't get this kind of prompt again. It's embarrassing.

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 …
