The Least Anticipated April Fools' Birthday 2015

The whole country's been going on and on about nothing else but GST, GST and GST. April 1, 2015 is the date that everyone would have to pay extra tax on top of the service tax that we are already paying. The price of (almost) everything will go up by 6% - understandably, nobody likes that kind of news. To add salt to the wound, we don't exactly know what is taxable and what isn't. It's really confusing and Malaysia has a tendency to leave its people like that.

Fun. lol

It's, however, my kids' and mom's birthday.....and everyone (in my country) hates it.

Anyway, had a massive meat-packed BBQ dinner the night before April 1 and then on the day itself, had another packed meal for their birthday too. Not sure why but there is no celebration of any other sort this year. They are OK with that, not every year has to be like gold flakes, confetti and fireworks. They know that most people go to school on their birthdays, work on their birthdays, are treated no special on their birthdays or suffer or go through pain on their birthdays. They know that so, they, being the sweet kids that they are, are just happy with all the well wishes....and FOOD!

Massive, cream-filled chocolate volcano cake!

The 3 birthday people. And yes, all three of them have Apr 1 birthdays...on the dot. No, it's not a joke.

When did they grow up so tall and big? Such big guys I have. 

Time flies, eh?

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 …
