Tomorrow will be better

An update: My Kakak is finally here! She's here! She's finally here!!! She's very young and a little bit inexperienced in terms of housework but never mind, I am pretty patient with these type of things. Very soft-spoken (or no-spoken because there's still a little bit of language barrier here) and obedient. Timid and scared as well but I keep telling her 'tak apalah, relax saja dulu' (don't worry, relax first now) because she so mengan-cheong (anxious) about what to do, how to do, when to do, where things are and stuff like that. Aiya, never mind lah, I keep telling here. Slowly lor....
For me, she's like an angel because she' here to save me from all the non-stop housework that I have to do. Never imagine that four people can wear so many clothes, eat so much food, use so many cups and dishes and produce so much litter! Like never-ending. So, with her here, at least I can unload those stuff on her liao! Yipeee!!!
Hopefully, I would have more free time now to deal with the business and the writing. Been MIA-ing from some clients these days because REALLY GOT NO TIME TO DEAL WITH THE PROJECTS. Not that I don't want to do but between cooking, cleaning and dealing with the kids, how to have time for anything when the day is over. No time to catch up on my VCDs and my books, you know. 
The only daily thing that I deservedly and jealously do is my spa-thing. The aromatherapy, the lotions, the scrubs, the massages and the yoga and meditation. 
As they always say 'ming thin wui kang hou' (tomorrow will be better)....let's hope so. 
Sidenote: Bringing in a live-in maid has become SO BLOODY EXPENSIVE!!! Almost RM8k these days! Last time, I remember spending only about RM3k or something like that! Bloody hell! And the salary also not cheap these days. I think it's better, if you're looking for help, if you employ locals now, actually. But nothing beats having someone around 24/7, right? Yeah...I know.....

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
