Women Should Remain Where? Lagging 166 Years Behind Times

I truly cannot believe this. Before I even got the chance to write about that 17 year old girl marrying that 15 year old boy, this article came out. I seriously cannot believe how much backward paddling we have been doing these days. So, I am going to just write a little about both.

Men should be at work and women should focus on reproducing human beings...here it is for you.

Just OMG. You know.....Oh My God.

Just to recap, the Women's Rights Movement began in 1848. 1848, ok? 1848.

In case you don't have a calculator with you, that's 166 years ago. The first National (USA la, that is) Women's Rights Convention was held two years later which is 1850 in Massachusetts, 164 years ago.

I don't even know where to begin. My brain is in a mess. LOL!

The Declaration of Sentiments was signed in Seneca Falls, New York in 1848 with the following statement:-
....the Sentiments demanded equality with men before the law, in education and employment. Here, too, was the first pronouncement demanding that women be given the right to vote.
At first, I was going to just make a few comments about how a boy and a girl in their teens don't know what love and marriage is all about (yet), how puppy love is just puppy love and these teens should be given the chance to date a little bit more, to explore the world that they live in, that marriage is a serious matter that will affect the rest of their lives and that having kids should be given more thought, they should get their education first, we should guide them to have the right priorities, bla bla bla...(I was going to write a note dripping with sarcasm)

...and now I don't know what to say anymore since this Dr. Nur Farrah outrightly came out with an ingenious idea that the country can become a more high-income nation if women just stayed at home.

While the rest of the world is embracing the fact that women can contribute to society and economic growth of all nations in the world, fathers can choose to stay at home while women can be the breadwinner, we are saying otherwise.

So, what happens to Stay At Home Dads now, my next question would be? Are they lazy or do not possess the 'right skill' to be competitive in the work force?

It is true that the opinion of this particular woman may not be the voice of everyone in Malaysia but it really puts things into perspective for me....that these people exists. Where did they come from? What were they taught and why is it possible for them to remain 166 years behind the rest of the world?

Teach and talk to them, open up the communication lines and tell them about their own potential. If kids are completely in love and want to be together, fine. Date. If they want to have sex, fine. Protect yourself until you are ready for children. Having kids is not like baking cakes. Empower them, teach them, guide them, educate them, tell them that they can have dreams and they should rush toward it with unabashed passion instead of getting a job at 15 years old with little know-how.
Just OMG. I don't know what else to do but to double facepalm.

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…
