Behind The Scenes, Things We Don't See Online On Social Media

You know people always, instead of posting pictures of themselves, post couple profile pictures? They even have joint Facebook accounts and stuff.

While I am absolutely thrilled about their happy union and I am not being a mean or bitter person but I believe there is always another side to the coin.

No matter how many wefie you post on Facebook, there is always another story behind that super happy picture and people don't post those unhappy pictures of themselves online.

It is so different from when I first started blogging. There were happy stuff, there were unhappy stuff, there were scary stuff....everything is out there. With Facebook and social media, things are just so....fluffy. LOL. Sorry, I don't have another word for it at the moment.

I have also evolved because I have seen absolutely crazy-for-each-other-I-will-take-a-bullet-to-the-brain-for-you people who suddenly announce that they were divorcing. Out of the blue. Just like that. What the hell happened, right?

So, I no longer idolize people's couple pictures or feel envy for them anymore. Yes, I used to. There are happy people who continuously post pictures of themselves up on Facebook but I scroll past them now. Because, reality is....we can't see behind the scenes, behind what they show us on their glorified pictures.


p.s. The picture could be the other way around, of course. Have a splendid 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 …
