Night Fever Night Fever

Some people dance when they are drunk. Some people dance as a profession. Some people dance on other people's laps. Some people dance like their grandfather owns the dance floor. Some people dance to attract the opposite sex. Some people just can't dance for nuts but dance anyway.
Dancing is not reserved only for night spots and discoteques....and in my personal opinion, dancing is not restricted by age either! I loathe to think that the society would deem an aging (ahem!) mother of two incapable of dancing or worse yet, SHOULD NOT dance simply because....
When I am out partying, sure I dance. When the mood hits me, the dance floor is mine. And i don't dance like the youngsters, shake her, booty there, gyrate here, rub there (OK, OK, OK. Maybe got a little bit lah....what!!?? Cannot ah? It's the trend these days lah. You expect me to go night spot and point sky, point floor like John Travolta?) just so that they can attract the hamsem (handsome) young bloke with washboard abs. I dance because the beat got to me.
And I tell you, if piano-playing is a major stress-buster for me, dancing is an even bigger one. It's good too because it oils up those creaky parts of my body that I never knew were creaking. You should hear my ligaments snap and crackle when I move, man. Comes with sitting down for an extended period of time...or standing.....or sitting. Whatever! Boy, I tell you, my parts really DO really DO really DO need oiling. But after I dance around the hall when my kids are asleep....or dance in the kitchen with my blaring through, I feel rejuvenated.
Hey, you should try it too, you know. If you don't think your skills would earn you points with the opposite sex, then dance at home? The plant can't see you and the walls don't talk.

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 put it

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 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…
