Feces On An Apple Pie

I just can’t take it anymore, I just can’t!!! Gawd, it’s like someone trying to pull my teeth out without anesthesia! It’s against every single rule of design and branding that I’ve ever learned over the years (although I’ve never gone on to Graphic Design school) and it is killing me. How does one use a FONT traditionally used for an ORBITUARY on a SIGN BOARD???? Good heavens, Geezuz help me. It’s not as if I can’t deal with (alright, I can’t) but it feels a lot like making a shoe-lover watch someone put a Jimmy Choo into a blender! Painful, painful, painful! At the end of the day, good heavens (thank the Lord), it’s not my business…not my restaurant, not my café, and none of my business but it’s just this little designer and creative person in me SCREAMING OUT like nobody’s business for the dire mistake that they’re making."NNNOOOOOOO!!!!! Don't do it! DOn't, please, don't! DDDOOOONNNNN'TTTTT!!!"

And they did it.

I could be wrong, still, maybe it’ll work because design is such. Even the best of designers and creative directors make a mistake and misjudge things but this time, I don’t think I am wrong!

Well, if they want to use the font on the signboard made for dead people, then be it. I hope they have enough room for vampires. It’s none of my business and MOST IMPORTANTLY, it’s NOT MY FAULT. Don’t say I didn’t warn them and don’t say that I didn’t try to help.

Good heavens…this is going to take me some time to get over. And I have to go there once in a while and see that obituary up there.

It’s going to be like watching feces on an apple pie….

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
