Yam Seng but don't be a Sam Seng

I love to drink. I mean it. I love to drink because I enjoy it. trust me, my relationship with alcoholic beverages have brought me so much misery and pain in the past that I’ve reached a plateau….an understanding, a compromise, an agreement with it. Now, when I drink, it’s because I enjoy it and want to unwind or enjoy myself. I just wish some people would get a hold of themselves and understand the concept of drinking. Effects of drinking:- louder, braver, more emotional, impulsive, stupider, uncooler, bloated ego, imaginarily enhanced muscles, elongated private assets, sharper nose, bigger balls, etc. That’s how people get into trouble after drinking. Please drink carefully and don’t drive after you drink. Yes, I know you can but just don’t, OK? Take the friggin’ cab for crissakes. Just leave your ego behind, leave your car there….take the cab and be safe. When you drink, you see the world going slower, so you drive faster. Then someone honks you, alcohol takes over, you curse the bugger down the road, and then a chase ensues. STOO.PEED. At least if you take the cab, you can’t force the cab driver to chase down the car. And don’t fight for goodness sakes. People get loud and obnoxious after they drink…they think they are suddenly hero and bigger, more muscular….sigh. Just drink and enjoy your game or company with friends. If you’re at home, enjoy your drama or book quietly, then go to sleep. Instead of creating havoc and let alcohol take over.

No, if you want to drink, you’ve got to have a stranglehold on your emotions. You have to let it flow but you have to be in complete control of it. Otherwise, you’ll likely do things you’ll regret later. Aiya, you’ll just ha ve to trust me on this one. Funnily, in the bible, people drink to celebrate, in Buddhism and in all kinds of culture, drinking in part of life and entertainment. This is how we should maintain it instead of bashing each other up after a few mugs (more like a few bottles of VSOP down the throat and burning off layers of your stomach lining). And don’t drink excessively. Know your limits because this is a very fine line. Often times, you don’t know you’ve crossed it until you’ve crossed it. So, learn the signs and symptoms. Now, yam seng!!! But don’t be samseng…

I LOVE drinking in my the hall with a Classical CD late at night. I can get pissed drunk for all I care. I'm in my hse! No need to drive home and risk running into roadblocks.

I totally am relaxed in my hse. No freaking cancer smoke either.

To hell with those smokers in pubs! I dont need smoke to enjoy my Stout.

I love to have a glass of wine with dinner. I learned, in my 20's, that too much alcohol can be a bad thing. Moderation is the key!

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
