Whacky Tacky

It's been a difficult week and considering my sullen mood, I didn't feel like sharing all those awful thoughts floating through my head. Call it whatever you want but it was definitely, I felt, Post-Traumatic Stress. You know, the kind many people got after 9/11. But today feel like everything's positive again. Thanks to all those who wished me well and sent me notes to cheer me up! Kamsahamnida ('Thank you' in Korean - fact that I am starting to write Korean again is evidence enough that life is back on the right track. Funny, ain't it?) Anyway, I'm not a show-horse or anything like that but I do understand that singers and performers have to adhere to a certain kind of fashion code in order to bring in the fans and keep fans interested in them. But....there's a limit. I don't know about you but I think wearing THIS....something akin to a big with transparent raincoat with a whacky bib is simply too out-of-whack for me. I don't even know the artiste's name. What do you think?

Errr.. if that were Hujan, would you change your mind?? Hahaha.. I bet you'd say he will never wear something so tacky!! But I don't mind-wor... especially if the bib-part is removed so that I can have an unhindered view of the bod...*

yeah....if a guy wear something like this, I'd run far....FAST! But then again, this is stage clothes...so....ermm....ok-lah, his buff bod makes up for lack of fashion sense. :-)

kat, you're right. if it were RAIN, now THAT'S ANOTHER STORY!! He could wear a plastic bag and I'd think he's totally in.

You know, your observation about removing the 'bib' part of the costume and just leave the transparent raincoat...hhhmmmm.....you've got my blood pumping there....

it's really funny that Asians wear these clothes. I still don't get it. Pop music in the US is already whacky enough....hard to believe that Asians are better at being whacky! :-)

Hahaha....I didn't know what to think or say so I thought I would come and read the comments and Jamie made me fall off my chair with fits of laughter!
I better ran far, far and fast, fast now.

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…
