Dumb Blonde Sanguine vs. Smart Perceptive Melancholic

I've always considered myself a very optimistic, easily happy person who embraces life and all that it's got to give it small, big or medium, long, short, thick or thin. I am a Sanguine person, you see. But despite my Sanguine nature, I don't think I have enuf Sanguinity to withstand Pessimism and negativity from a Melancholic for too long lor. I just don't understand it, maybe it's a form of sickness or personality thing, you know. Why do some people choose to make themselves angry or pissed off at things all the time? Why can't we keep things simple and just enjoy what we have? I mean, do we have to be angry with the world, understand everything right down to every molecule and reason behind every cell creation? Do we have to evaluate every dot, coma or semi-colon? I used to drive people nuts because I choose to see what I want to see because they make me happy. That's why I can live in a clutter or mess....I CHOOSE TO SEE THE MESS only when I want to. Otherwise, I can skirt around the mess or clutter and pretend they don't exist. :-) I know. Shameless. Pig. But that's the way I am - I am made like that. I choose to not let people bring me down. If a friend pisses me off, I pretend I never had that friend. At the end of the day, I want to be surrounded by things that makes me happy, not make me sad. Maybe it's not such a good trait and yes, it hurts sometimes but I think I live a more meaningful life that way. Why choose to be so mentally tortured by things perceived to be unsolvable or unavoidable. When you can't avoid it, then accept it and move on, right? Just don't keep looking back and let things torture you, right or not? Am I wrong?

Great food for thought, marsha. The traffic's starting to bug me and I've been swearing more at the brainless drivers I meet every single day. I gotta start thinking like you, hehe.

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
