Butt Out, Bi**H

Some people just can’t stop trying to control other people. It annoys me….so completely that I just feel like an uncontrollable knee-jerk reaction to reach across the table and twack their noses! The thing is, some people have this really infuriating habit of trying to teach you how to teach your kids. That’s exactly what I am getting at lah, OK? It’s like someone who’s constantly watching you…and waiting for you to foul up so she will walk up to you and point it out to you very ‘cheerfully’ and ‘nicely’. I take her words with a PUNCH of salt, for your information and most of the time, I try to steer clear. You’ll never know when my hand (and mouth) might decide enough is enough, you know! Anyway, had a dinner gathering last night and met up with some of the most fabulously animated gwai-lows and made some new friends together with some relatives discussing everything under the sun. Our conversation was laced with McCallan and some other drink that I cannot remember liao lah. Oh. Yeah. I mixed McCallan with my kedondong+sour plum juice in hope of coming up with a brand new Malaysian-style cocktail. Erm…don’t do it. :-) Let my adventoursome nature be a lesson to you. Hee hee hee…. A.NY.WAY. There’s this annoying lady hovering around us, not being able to mingle around with us because she’s got a baby to carry around and all that, you see. My kids were basically loitering around with their cousins. They do things that most kids do lah….having fun, laughing, falling on the floor, lying on the chair, argue, wanna bash each other up and playing again. Normal-lah. And I have a maid watching over them. So, I enjoy myself with my conversation mah, right? But this annoying lady keeps coming me and reporting to me what my kid is doing, telling me that he shouldn’t be lying down on one of the chairs, laughing when I take a drink, making sarcastic remarks that I felt she was shoving down my throat. Me? Sensitive? Yeah, maybe. McCallan didn’t have time to work yet, OK? So, maybe I felt that she was a little too….urgh. Like hovering around, trying to remind me that I shouldn’t be enjoying myself TOO MUCH because my kids are this and that, this and that! YOU. GO. TAKE. CARE. OF. YOUR. KIDS. I love my kids but I have a maid who is watching over them. When they do something bad, my maid will come to me, thank you very much! I wanted to tell her to leave me alone and let me enjoy my mindless almost-drunken chatter. If she feels left out, fine, sit down and chat, then. And she always have to tell me what to do, how to do things, why this, why that. It’s not always in a friendly-friendly way…it’s in a I-know-better-than-you-because-you’re-so-dumb way. B.I.T.C.H.

whenever I come across people like this I just try to take everything in until "enough is enough and enough is too much" time where I will give them my bored look. If that doesn't pass the message then the next thing is verbal communication c/w pissed looks..100% sure hit the spot time won't come near me.

KNNCCB!! to me its not being rude ma, its just dishing out the same meds they are trying to shove down your throat right?

I know I won't make many frens this way but wtf!! I dun need "frens" of such kind..they can kiss my arse for all I care.

jamie, absolutely lah! I mean, it's like she always have to come and teach me how to teach my kids all the time! and frankly speaking, i wish she was not someone so close-knit (if you get my drift) so that I dont have to see her all the time. but....ergh!

if i give her the 'eff off' face (which I've done before), I kena bang kow-kow after that until i have nothing to say.

imagine that....she so strong until marsha maung also kalah, ok? i think tan jamie also kalah

winnie, oh yes!!!! that's why I am working alone, a freelancer. it really doesn't matter whether you have a kid or not? it's just that, some people are just so....patronizing. Like they know everything and you're a dumb bitch? this persona I know? yeah, that. a lot like that.

not only with me, but with just about everyone else as well.

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
