How many handphones do you have?

Many people today have more than 1 cellphone for their everyday use. For instance, me. I have a PDA and a normal phone….a HP iPaq and also a Samsung basic phone will cameraphone, video recorder and other basic stuff-lah.

In case you think I am lan-si and want to show off, it cannot be further from the truth! Many people have double-cell phones these days including my sister, father, a good friend….even band members have two phones and two numbers.

The reason why I have 2 handphones is because I want to keep my office life far away from me when I am not working. Working from home is tough because there’s no line between work and personal life; therefore, if I use the same phone number, my life is all muddled up. Not as if it’s not with Internet and all…but still, at least I have drawn a line between the two (and more) lives that I live.

More importantly, both my handphones are completely different. One is a PDA where I record all the schedules, to-dos, kids’ tuition, shopping time, piano time, work time, cleaning time…etc. I am quite religious with that. Otherwise, there’s no time to do anything. I cannot go to sleep without reviewing what’s on the PDA. If not, I would be thinking and worrying about work and I would linger around on my computer, checking emails, logging in and out of Instant Messengers all night through. As it is, I sleep at ungodly hours…

What about you? How many handphones do you have? If you have more than one handphone, why?

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…

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun.



I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose.

This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-)

For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, remember th…
