My guy, MacGyver

Many of you were still in diapers when TV was showing one of the most intelligent show (by last time's standards) on the planet starring a man with the dreamiest eyes possible. McGyver. I mean, there was nothing this guy cannot fix and give him a hammer, a nail and a screwdriver and the fella just builds a bomb! Richard Dean Anderson may not be the best actor nor does he have the hottest bod in the world but man, he's way cool in MacGyver. What happened to the show anyway? And accordingly, Richard Dean Anderson is now about my father's age....damn. For those of you were not lucky to be born early enough to watch the show, MacGyver was one of the hottest shows (still is, next to Knight Rider) on the planet. Compared to all those reality TV that we have on air these days, sigh.....MacGyver is a simple guy working as a cannot-remember-what-he-was-working-as with kick-ass attitude and brain of a rocket scientist. When he lands himself in shit, he can make use of just about anything around him to get himself out of trouble. Of course, sometimes you feel like....wahhh....where got such coincidence wan? But that's the beauty of the show, I guess. MacGyver using his brains and knowledge of science to get himself out of trouble. What I really like is the fact that he's the man of my dreams!! No, not Anderson per se but MacGyver! Quiet, mid-mannered (never seen him raise his voice in the show before), very disciplined and SMART LIKE HELL. MacGyver is different because there's an underlying message to be delivered. You don't need guns and bombs to be big. All you need is your head. When you use your head, you can create unorthodox solutions to problems. Think out of the box. With knowledge, MacGyver can whip the bad guys' asses from here to another Milky Way. I miss MacGyver. In fact, I think my kids would enjoy watching MacGyver. :-)

Marsh..while you're at it...remember A-Team, Three's Company, Mork and Mindy, Dallas, Dynasty, Airwolf, Heart to heart and many more??

Maybe you're too young...but for those my age will also remember the TV series Rockford Files, Chips (the best tv soundtrack from 80s!), Baretta, Kojak, Incredible Hulk, Laverne and Shirley, Happy Days (when it 1st appeared in RTM) and may more.

sigh...those were the good old days.

Killer guy

Hi, Marsha!

I actually liked 'Jack' better than Mac. I thought Mac was rather chilly. That was years ago...I like Mac better now and I have all the seasons.

I LOVE MACGYVER!!!! I LOVE RICHARD DEAN ANDERSON!!! I was just a kid when I saw MacGyver but I loved the show so much! My Dad adores this guy - he even bought a Swiss Army Knife because MacGyver had one! Man... What a brilliant show! Did you watch Stargate SG1? He was brilliant in that one too! He's old but he's just got this air about him... charisma maybe...

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…

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS before you hit thirty

In terms of internet savviness, I think I am quite ‘there’ lah….a bit lah. Not a lot but a bit ‘there’, up there with some of some internet marketers out there but let’s face it, I’m not going to be swimming in cash yet unless I learn to do something extraordinary. REALLLLLYYYYY EXTRAORDINARY. But come to think of it, some of the biggest gazillionaires who made a whole lot of mullah from the Internet did not start out thinking it would make them millionaires. In fact, some of them did it for fun. Humor me, fun = lots of money. Let’s have lots of fun, then, instead of working our butts off for mediocre earnings, am I right? :-)That leaves me thinking…what can I do that is fun and can make me truckloads of money everyday? I want to hear the cash register going ka-ching, ka-ching every minute of the day and my sole responsibility is to have complete, unbashed fun. I took this list off somewhere, can’t remember where (trust me, I have all these things, ready to be blogged about, and I do…

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…
