Update : Phone Hunting

My son broke the screen of his smartphone and so, we went a-hunting for an affordable replacement. Sigh...such was the Sunday. But I have to say that they've been generally careful with their phones because they know we're not millionaires and they love their phones to death.

They may not have the latest iPhone or the coolest gadgets but they are generally very appreciative of what they have, which is important to me.

While we were looking around for the best options in the market today, this was what we found Son 2 doing. He kept asking 'Can you see what I am seeing? Can you see?'

No, Jad. We couldn't see it and you look really...funny. LOL

This is what people look like when they try on these thingamagics XD #instapic #instapics #picoftheday #samsung A post shared by Marsha Maung (@marshamaung) on Jul 23, 2017 at 3:02am PDT

Bye : It's No Longer Heavy

It's heavy no more.



We'll miss your songs and voice.

Love,
Marsha
p.s. I don't usually post more than once a day but I thought this warrants it.

"Heavy" (feat. Kiiara)

I don't like my mind right now
Stacking up problems that are so unnecessary
Wish that I could slow things down
I wanna let go but there's comfort in the panic
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything's about me
Yeah I drive myself crazy
'Cause I can't escape the gravity

I'm holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
To so much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what's bringing me down
If I just let go, I'd be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?

You say that I'm paranoid
But I'm pretty sure the world is out to get me
It's not like I make the choice
To let my mind stay so fucking messy
I know I'm not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same
I know I'm not the center of the universe
But y…

Picture Post : Proud Parent I Am

Of all the things I did wrong, I must have done something right...

No matter what people say about my kids and I, no matter how close or how far apart that we are, related or not, no matter what they think of me and my kids, I know that they are not perfect. I don't expect them to be. I just want them to be who they are and be happy with that. 
I hope, after I am six feet underground, they find this and know that there's nothing missing. 
Nothing is missing. 
Happy Friday! Love, Marsha

Video : Job Hazards 10000101011000011

It's Wednesday and most people are trudging along during their work week (What? I wasn't talking about YOU. I was talking about THEM!) and whether we realize it or not, we might find ourselves wishing for a trip to Bali or Santorini free of charge. But you know what? For most of us, it isn't going to happen too soon.

Curse you, if it does and what's your phone number, do you have a rich father?

WARNING : This is a legit warning and it's in RED and capitals for a good reason : turn the volume down if the baby is sleeping, you're using headphones or your boss is lurking around your cubicle wondering if you're on Facebook.




Anyway, found this video on DIGG and I think it's perfect for days like today, Wednesday, when you're stuck in the middle of the week, can't go back to Monday to restart and can't forward to Friday to Happy Hour.

When you are Born to Write

Writing is easy. All you need to do is to cross out the wrong words - Mark Twain
I am not sure if the quote above is actually said or written by the renowned Mark Twain but it sure is true. All you need to do is pour everything in your head on paper, even if it sounds absolutely ridiculous, out of this world (maybe that's what you need!) or absolutely crap, and then go back and delete the words you don't need. 
And truth be told, even if someone told me not to write EVER AGAIN, I will still end up writing somewhere. It could be on pen and paper, it could be engraved on rocks, but I will definitely end up writing again and again...and again. Because that's just what I do. 

Have an amazing Tuesday ahead, people of the world,
XOXO,
Marsha

Movie : Is Anyone Going to Bring Big Hero 6 Back (Not a Review)

I mean, how cute is THAT?! XD

I don't care what everyone else says or think but we can gawk over Iron Man, sweat bullets over the hot-ness of Thor, marvel at the temperamental Hulk, have sweet (ahem) dreams over Captain America or coo all over the adorable minions all we want, BayMax is a this fluffy sweet cotton candy that you want to hug all day long and no others have come close to making me want to hug my laptop. 
Unless he turns into this, which was what 14-year-old Hiro did to him, not Tadashi.

I am a big BayMax fan, more than I am a fan of Wall-E, Woody, Moana (and the dreamy Maui), or maybe even BAMBI, Peter Pan and TINKERBELL! Yes, I am a softie, so what? LOL. (But hey, Tinkerbell has a mean streak, OK? haha) Is it any wonder that it won an award at the Kids' Choice Award?!

Is anyone ever going to come up with a new one (and not spoil the bejeesus out of it) soon? We want, really want, BayMax back! And besides, it's refreshing that many Asian (or rather, Japanese…

Food Wastage : Things We Can Do To Reduce It

Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — gets lost or wastedFood losses andwaste amounts to roughly US$ 680 billion in industrialized countries and US$ 310 billion in developing countries - FAO I don't usually buy the newspaper but sometimes, a thing or two pops up and I want to keep it or write about it. This is one of them : Punish Malaysians who continue to waste food.


Food, to me, is a very big thing...don't ask me why and how this started but it could have a thing or two to do with having kids, having to buy groceries, having to prepare and make dinner, and having been at the brink of starving because there wasn't any money left to buy food for the kids. Suffice to say, when you are at that stage, the reality of starving becomes very, very real and self-awakening.

1. First, learn about what you can and cannot keep in the fridge. This, I say from personal experience. Try keeping onions a…
