It's All In the Bacon

I try my best to eat as clean as possible...most of the time, in fact, I was almost vegetarian the entire week, reminding myself that I am doing this for myself and the animals of the world. lol. Talk about OTT. But mostly because I didn't feel like eating heavy meats. There's the occasional clam and ikan bilis (anchovies) in my fried meehoon but I figured it was fine.

Eating vegetarian, as you might have guessed, is not exactly very filling and you get hungry like only the whole day after that so, some days I give myself permission to just pig out. Literally. And my favorite way to pig out is....bacon. Pun intended.


It is so versatile that you can eat it just like that or add it to fried rice or pizza or just fix yourself a nice little sandwich with bacon and Tabasco sauce and O....M....G....

Of course, I know it's fattening but it is one of the very few guilty pleasures that I sometimes let myself have...and trust me, there are not too many on the list.

But did you know that bacon wasn't 'born' in the West...but in China? And during some emperor times or something? Did you also know that 43% of people reportedly prefer to have bacon over sex? Or that some compounds in bacon can boost the 'potential intellect' of unborn babies when taken by pregnant mothers?

I sure didn't. All I knew was that it is delicious and that it is one of my most sinful behaviors from the kitchen.


Here are 17 fun facts about bacon from Bacontoday.com.

So, bacon, anyone?
Love,

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…
