Scent, Scent, I love you, Please Stay - Yin and Yang Soap

It's addictive, I tell you. This soaping thing. lol

It is no wonder some 'soapers' who make soaps just for fun end up with more soap than they have bacteria and dirt to wash off their bodies. And eventually, they turn it into a business so that they can continue soaping without bankrupting their bank accounts.

I have always been intrigued by some soapers' ability to color their soaps so prettily. Me, not so talented. Who knows, if I continue with this hobby, I might get good.

Anyway, made a small batch of charcoal and Himalayan salt soap. Most people make a 1kg soap every time they have a go at it. I prefer to do a 500g batch instead.

The focus this time round is the rose scent I put into this cold press soap. The biggest complaint about cold press soaps is that there is no scent or they smell like some oil that you would put into a bowl of salad. I have gotten used to smelling like salad but hey, no harm trying (and risk wasting perfectly good essential oil) to put some smell into that bar of soap.

These are in their 3rd day of curing so, we have about 27 days to go before we know if the rose essential oil survived the curing process. If it does, then I am gonna fist pump and say to the Universe, 'Santa Maria, I GOT THE POWER!!!'

Creeping one day nearer to another weekend,

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 …
