Yesterday was supposed to be a very relaxed day but for some reason, it was very stressful indeed. The only consolation I had was that I spent the evening eating dinner at my sis' and bro's place nearby. Cooked some char-siew and fish and headed over for our potluck-style dinner. Very yummy (since it's been some time I've eaten my mother's cooking) and relaxing in a lot of ways. I did not manage to escpade the cruel onslaught of work and housework...too bad. Not because I didn't want to but I couldn't. Shikes....I know. I shouldn't have. I should have learned how to say 'no way, Jose!' but.... Anyway, today is back to normal and catching up with the loads of work that was backlogged before. But relatively fine. But one thing, come some people tend to think that I am so darn free and should be fine with the running around when I work from home. I just can't crack that nut over there, you know. It's like...they have a broken pipe and it's 'Call Marsha'. Someone needs to send money to someone overseas and it's 'Call Marsha'. Never's OK. I do whatever I can do long as I know that my sanity is more important than anything else on this planet. If they think they can tamper with it, they can sod off for all I care. I am going on a mission to slowing things down again after catching up with the bit of work I have backlogged. Before I end, I want to remind 'someone' to stop with that 'relax lah' comment, ok? It's a one off thing and I am pretty relaxed most of the time. Just because I had a bad Mother's Day doesn't mean that I am crazy and about to loot the bank because I wanna piss off my in-laws. Relax....I am fine. Give me two days to sort the backlog out and I am fine.

jamie, I know, I know I know!!! But saying 'no' is just something I am not very good at! But I don't know lah, my dear cousin, I will try, ok?

It's true, it's up to me. The issue is me and probably no one else....I think. My friends have been telling me this LLLLLOOONNNGGGG time until give up. :)

its easy, learn to say "no" as politely as possible...if they still dun / wont understand then its push comes to shove liao..."NO" means "NO".

Hey, its like when "someone" is dead tired and "her" hubby wants to have sex...does he:
a) respect her and her decision
b) dun give a damn, pull the damn thing out and have what he wants ( in some countries its called rape )

You might say that is not what you are talking about but the bottomline is the bloody same...all about being treated with respect..R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Be at peace with yrself cuz, just go ahead and stand your ground cos those who dun give respect sure dun deserve any...

pssst, last time I was a sohai like you but not anymore...I will gladly bash anyones face in if they think they can treat me or anyone I love like dirt..even my freaking bosses ( so far so good la ), KNN so there!!

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
