Hands Up For Holistic Beauty and Slimming

There’s no end to the beautifying, spa-ing and slimming industry….an honest statement deserving of a nod from you readers! Although I have never tried one of ‘em slimming programs before (too expensive and painful, I believe), I’ve tried home slimming remedies before. None of them worked, actually. I am particularly opposed towards taking drinks or medications that make you puke and sit on the throne for hours and causing havoc to your to your digestive systems! Listen, if you want to slim down and detox at the same time, you try Juvanex, which works.

I’ve written lots of times before too about what I think of all that U-Zap, I-Zing, U-Lose, They-suck contraptions that you put on affected areas. Manufacturers are making off with truckloads of money while they hand you a package of ‘false hope’. Being a firm believer that weight-loss and beauty begins from within, I’ve invested in lots of books that teach me how to live properly, eat properly, exercise properly for the overall health revamp. There’s no electrical appliance in the world that can compare to internal beauty that translates into physical beauty.

For less than what you would spend on a bottle of diet pills or OO-Long tea, why not go for something more holistic. For example, something like this diet. At the end of the day, not only will you look better, you’ll also FEEL better. You walk with a slight strut because your system works better after going through the program.

I can’t say I’ve tried it out myself, but after reading through what’s on the site, I might just decide to.

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…
