Things You Have To Say More Often

Last week was a funny one. If there is one thing I have trouble saying to anyone, myself included, it is the word 'NO'. I go with everything and sometimes think that, maybe, perhaps, I owe it to people to say 'Yes' to freaking everything.

There are a few people in this world who knows this about me. So, I said 'No' to a couple of things and people this week and....get this....I got a 'Congratulations. In a strange, weird way, I am so proud of you!' LOL

So, I found this article detailing out 10 things that we should be saying more often so that we can all live in a Rainbow Colored World filled with confetti and unicorns and I found myself agreeing to most of them and noting that I need to remember them.

I love saying 'It's a possibility' when people propose stuff or say something can be done. It's like 'I think we can reverse time' and I go 'It's a possibility'. Powerful, isn't it? hahaha. It's impractical but hey, 'It's a possibility' still!

I don't have a problem with saying 'I Love You' because I am like, I-Love-You everyday in and out with my kids and friends. I don't know, for some reason, I like saying I love you because when I was younger, it wasn't something we say to each other, whether family or friends, easily.

We are Asian and Asians don't say 'I Love You' unless he is a cute guy professing his undying love for you. Stereotypical, sure. Fact, absolutely. You practically have to wranggle an 'I Love You' from a boyfriend or husband in this region of the world. If your husband says it to you in a room packed with men without having to resort to a whisper, buy a lottery. You're friggin' lucky and I hate you. lol.

I never hesitate saying 'I Love You' as I grew up. Partly because I am mushy that way. I am also sarcastic, by the way, and sometimes I can dig up old stuff just to get you irked as a way of teasing you or to make you roll your eyes or threaten to send a 100,000 cockroaches to me via courier (THAT is NOT an idea, if you do, you will be on my hit list, I promise you) but I don't have problems saying 'I Love You'.

Have a read at the link and see if you have problems saying any of those phrases.

Having a splendid Saturday because I went to Digital Mall and solved my never-ending paranoia about my phone battery dying just as I am about to send out an S.O.S. from a stranded island or something. Yeah, I got a backup battery. And I already have 4 power banks. Yes, I know. ;-P

It's funny but Digital Mall is much more my kind of mall than something like say....clothes, shoe, makeup or perfume. Yes, I do those stuff too (yes, I have had to be dragged out by the hair out of Body Shop before) but not just as twinkly-eyed as I would be when I am in Digital Mall.

Funny kind of woman, me.
Love,
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…
