A Liberating Activity - Guess What Mine Is....

When asked what’s my one single favorite thing to do in the world, I would usually name a whole list of things that I love to do when my work is not screaming at me. Something that takes my mind COMPLETELY off of everyday tasks and relaxes me. Take a guess what it is…. If you say ‘reading’, yes, I love reading (especially soppy love stories with lots of sex scenes, please. Hee hee hee….) and I also love mystery novels but it’s not the first on the list. If you say ‘playing the piano’; yes, I love playing the piano. Creating forms a huge part of my life and whenever I play the piano (as inept at it as I am), there’s this tiny little girl inside of me jumping up and down with glee, clapping her hands. It’s my childhood dream to be able to play the piano! And thumping on the keys gives me a sense of satisfaction when I hear the music. If you say ‘writing’; You’ve got to be kidding me! You mean I don’t write enough as it is? Case closed. If you say ‘playing with my kids’; Yeah, you’re darn right about that, I love playing with my kids. But I work from home, you see, so I listen to their jabbering and squabbles all-day-long, so, it doesn’t completely take me away from the real world. If you say ‘drinking’; Yeah, you’re just about right. I love to drink…not until pengsan (faint) but until I feel very very very very relaxed. Although I used to drink a lot (I’m not going into details) but I’ve cut down a lot and most of the time, during week days, I don’t drink anymore and it’s not the single most incredibly liberating activity to me now. If you say ‘watching series’; Oooohhh….you know me so well! Yeah, I love it because it takes me into another world where other people’s problems are actually BIGGER than mine. Wa ha ha ha ha!! But it does nothing to relax me. So… If you say ‘knitting’; Sure, I love knitting but one can only knit for so long, right? I mean, I AM A VERY RESTLESS PERSON and you can’t expect me sit there needle stroke after needle stroke and feel relaxed and liberated, right? But it does give me a sense of satisfaction because I ‘created’ something. If you say ‘cooking’; Mmmm…not too bad. But not close enough. If you say ‘singing’; You’re pretty darn close! Singing DOES take me into another world…whenever I am on stage, I just become someone else. It’s extremely, extremely liberating to be entertaining an appreciative crowd and hearing the sound of applause coming at me….and hearing applause comes second to a mind-blowing orgasm. So….guess….what is it that I love to do that liberates me, takes me into another world and most importantly, physically, emotionally and psychologically relaxes me? p.s. And it’s not sex, OK?

Choosing and buying fruits from kuci-maos who butter you up.
Well it's physical (NOT sex), in your following post you mention poetry but that is not physical (unless you like to bang your head off a wall thinking of the perfect metaphor to use..). Could it be dance/tai-chi/yoga (some form of physical expression)?

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 crime, I f…

Grilled Salmon With Unagi Sauce

I always disagree with people who say that they are lazy to cook, it's too hard, no time, too difficult, easier to eat out....etc. I can't agree because I have found multiple ways to cook simple, cheap meals without causing too much of a ruckus to my schedule. All it takes is a little bit of planning ahead and research. And a sense of humor when it turns out...to put it nicely...sucks.

Anyway, here's one simple one that ANYONE (kids included) can cook up. Seriously simple and easy.


I love salmon but my kids don't like the smell and texture. But that doesn't mean that I can't go out to the market and spend RM11 on ONE single piece of salmon fish and make MYSELF one, right? Kids can have the overnight pizza. :-)
This is fresh from the market....man oh man! I LOVE IT!!
Wash it properly, de-bone the thing if you want to but I just left everything the way it is and just covered the fish with some of the following:-

Yup, salt, pepper and McCormick's season-all powder…

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, remember th…
