Food, Food, Food - It's All About The Food

It's really quite amazing the amount of money you will save when you make your own food at home. There was one time we (when I say we, it means the 3 of us) ate Vietnamese food for like more than RM100+, one time eating pricey burger and fries for RM80+ and then worse yet, I (as in me, alone, just me, one person eating with friends) had Korean for RM80+, ONE PERSON. It was hellaloadoffood but still.

Yeah, we can opt for cheaper options, obviously, like our favorite mixed rice or our kopitiam and thank goodness for them too. It is the school holidays right now so, how many kopitiams can we visit before we get bored of them? How many stalls do they have before we have tried them all, right?

Eating out IS always going to be expensive and that is why I feel like people should try to cook their own meals more often.

I made days' worth of porridge yesterday and it is right now in the fridge. I have salted eggs, and some fermented vegetables, fish, canned food and some stuff that I can eat together with the porridge. What can I say? I am a porridge kinda gal. I've always loved porridge, some people might think it odd since porridge is often associated with 'sick people food'. LOL.

Anyway, I cheated a little yesterday, with bacon and sausages. The kids loved it and I made it with buttered corn and carrots and fried eggs. They said it was a good combo and I guess that's all that matters, right?

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 …
