36 CHRISTIAN WAYS TO REDUCE STRESS

It's not me to go all religious and righteous but I am for being a nice person. My father (surprise surprse!) who is the most unsuspecting religious person sent me this email and I was like....wah? But everything contained inside are true. I mean, I've heard it said a thousand times over before but still....we need a little reminding once in a while. So, here I am....reminding you. *** An Angel says, "Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happens tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice."
  1. Pray
  2. Go to bed on time
  3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed
  4. Say 'No' to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health
  5. Delegate tasks to capable others
  6. Simplify and unclutter your life
  7. Less is more (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many)
  8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places
  9. Pace yourself. Spread our big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump all the hard things all together.
  10. Take one day at a time.
  11. separate worries from concerns. If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety. If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.
  12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases
  13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.
  14. KMS (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.
  15. Do something for the KID in you everyday
  16. Carry a bible with you to read while waiting in line
  17. Get enough rest
  18. Eat right
  19. Get organized so everything has its place.
  20. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life
  21. Write down thoughts and inspirations
  22. Everyday, find time to be alone.
  23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try and pray
  24. Make friend with Godly people
  25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand
  26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good 'Thank you, Jesus'
  27. Laugh
  28. Laugh some more!
  29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.
  30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing their best they can).
  31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most.
  32. Sit on your ego
  33. Talk less. Listen More.
  34. Slow down
  35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe
  36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before. GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU. "If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31)

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 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…

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 …
