How Does Gwen Look So Pretty Preggers?

When I was preggers, neither time I had it pretty.Sure....I don't look like a whale because I looked like TWO WHOLE WHALES! :-) I felt fine and somehow, someone up there loves me, so I had relatively easy early pregnancies with the second one veering towards painfully torturous towards the end of the exprerience. I remember hobbling about like a blardie hobbit trying to pretend that I am NOT trying to control my pee, cursing the failing muscles in my bladder and then tossing careless and angry threats at innocent passing motorists. But all in all, I had good months before that. Having good pregnancies doesn't mean you LOOK GOOD. Now, this is what I call a hot mama. How does Gwen Stefani have so many babies in quick successions and yet look smashingly hot each time? I just don't get it!! Is it the money? Well, money don't stand no chance against GRAVITY, in my personal opinion. And if it's the age, then how come I don't look so prettily pregnant like her when I was her age and in the same size?

clair, she's thirty-nine???? you sure??? no way, you're pulling my leg. Wow. I have some serious saving to do so that I can afford botox, man. I am not winning my battle with gravity and dying cells so far. :-P

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…
