Bloging Therapy

I didn’t blog last night because I was too busy…..this time not because of work but because I was busy watching leng-chai (hunk) acting in a Korean drama! :-) Hee hee hee….which drama series this time? 8TV is showing this show Korean series called ‘Witch Yoo Hee’ at 8.30pm and my friend who told me to watch it over the phone. More like she was gushing at how handsome one of the lead actors was and how she wanted to ‘order’ someone like that and asked me if I could help her ‘order’ one and have it ‘delivered’ to her address! Ha ha ha ha!

Anyway, I love watching series, be it Hongkie, Jap or Korean, there’s something about the continuity of a series that makes it so….chase-able. I realize that with my current schedule, I have placed my love for watching series and movies in the backseat. It’s working, emailing, blogging, cooking, ironing, writing, cleaning, washing, doing helping kids to do their homework. The value of my time has become so high that I count every second I spend on the throne (the jamban lah for those who don’t understand). And time is so precious nowadays that the quality of life has dropped too. (What nonsense talk since I just came back from holiday in Hong Kong, right?)

Therefore, from now on, I resolve to watch television more, pig out more, and play the piano more. And blog more too….in the middle of the day too as a reward to myself for working so hard (more like taking a break-lah). It’s funny, you know but blogging is very therapeutic to me too and comes very close to pigging out in front of the tele. I must actually write something, regardless of how ridiculous, nonsensical and bullshitty it is, I must write something.

Therefore, blogging is for me, not for you (sorry-lah) but it is therapy for me. (And all this while you thought I blogged for you, isn’t it?) :-) But I don’t think you all mind lah. But the downside to blogging is that everyone people who read it know everything about you and what goes on in your life. You meet them and there’s a problem of finding a topic to talk about. For instance…..I meet up with you for coffee and this is how the conversation would go….

Me: “Hi”

You: “Hello. Long time no see”

Me: “Ya lah, I thought you mati”

Laugh together-gether.

You: “So, how’s it been?”

Me: “Well, my grandmother passed away liao lor and….”

You: “Oh ya, I know. I read in your blog”

Me: “Oh! Cool. And then I just came back from Hong Kong and Macau and it was….”

You: “Oh ya! I read about that too.

See? But it’s still therapeutic to me and I shall continue to blog about everything I want to. So, next time if you see me, pretend you’ve never read my blog and don’t know the inside outside of my life, ok?

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…
