Let The Mat Rempits Race Their Brains Out

I don’t know about you but the people I fear the most whenever I am driving are not the ones behind big momma vehicles, trucks and such. They’re loud and intimidating even from afar but they’re not the worst. The people I fear the most are the fearless Mat Rempits (Irresponsible motorcyclists who race each other in the wee hours of the morning) or the daylight versions. Seemingly, these people just don’t know what ‘death’ is. And I hate it when they scare the bejeezus out of us normal drivers trying to arrive at our destination in one piece. They’d zoom out of hidden corners at 90KMPH or maybe zip past the red light before the other lights turn green. Or they rev it up at the last nanosecond of the yellow light. Malaysia is well-known for this – for the stress-inducing traffic jams and early morning eardrum busting sounds of engines roaring past. Every time I see them and I wonder what they’re thinking….or are they even thinking at all? That they are invincible? That other people will avoid them no matter what? That accidents don’t happen? That they imagine themselves to be made of steel? The impact of being flung off their bikes in itself will cause them a lot of bodily damage and the helmet can only do so much under the crushing weight of a car. And yet, they don’t care??? The government have been trying to tackle this problem with increased fines, lengthy jail time, and what not but I think what should be done is to encourage them to race elsewhere. Racing is more than just a habit with them….it’s the thrill, I think. The government must give them the chance to fulfill their thrill of riding at a dangerous speed without endangering others. Give them a bloody race track and let them race there….ENCOURAGE them to race there for blardie free of charge. Racing on their stupid machines elsewhere remains illegal. Get the b*****ds off the roads and make the roads safe for other drivers. Long, long time ago, I heard this from a friend’s mother. She’s like 40+ years-old and kind of very kan-cheong (anxious) kind of person when she drive. One time, she was driving as carefully as she can on the road when a Mat Rempit swerved out of a corner causing her to land in the ditch. She sprained her hands and neck but she was OK. Whilst she was physically OK, she was a little bit traumatized by it and didn’t drive for the next eight (or so) months! It inconvenienced herself and her family members because she used to fetch her grandchildren and kid to and from school and tuition classes. Jail time and fines don’t scare these bas***ds because it adds to the thrill. The excitement. Like a habitual burglar, sometimes breaking and entering is connected to the ‘fear’ of being caught. They race each other because they enjoy the adrenaline rush. Give these idiots racing classes, give them license to race on track instead. punishment, in my eyes, may worsen things instead. Gawd, I blardie hate those senseless idiots. Sorry if you’re one of them. I meant all the other Mat Rempits, not you. :-)

Space Sweepers (Netflix): Movie Review (2021)

Space Sweeper the Korean Sci-Fi Blockbuster hits Netflix 2021 Image Source: KoreaTimes Let me come clean. The first thing I thought when I saw Song Joong Ki leading the lineup for this movie was ' Is this OK?'  ' Hhhmmm.....what about, you know...his personal life', and as a fan of his previous personal work, I had the same doubt I had when he was casted in 'Descendants of the Sun'.  Sorry, Joong Ki. 😳 But the concept of a sci-fi movie in the Korean film platter was enticing. The trailer didn't look half bad either. When it comes to space movies, Hollywood has always been the Big Guy. We expect Hollywood to deliver the big guns and explosions while Kdrama land is all mush, love, arm grabs, ice-cold kiss scenes, love triangles, and of late, time traveling.  So, sci-fi? Interesting. Honestly, I went in with an empty mind which is not necessarily an open one. Ditched the reviews, writeups, Youtube reactions and everything else and hit the 'watch' butto

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 crim

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, reme
