Yoga Ban Nonsense

I just can't take it anymore. I resisted the urge to comment or post a blog post about it because I don't, and don't feel the need to, want to touch politics on my blog. Furthermore, I have a lot of friends with certain religion and offending them is not something that I want to do. But this has gone too far! The Malaysian government has finally come out with their final verdict. Yoga is banned for people with certain religion. No, this is no joke. Yoga is banned because it promotes a religion and it started from India, hence, to the jokers, Yoga promotes Hinduism. I've been practicing Yoga for some time now and I still believe that NESCAFE is my god. And my second god is Facebook. Erm.....Carlsberg is also my god. Anyway, frankly, I don't know how these buggers come up with that logic lor... Listen, the word yoga is derived from Sanskrit words which means to join, or to bind one's spiritual and physical consciousness. Not G**, or Al***, or Bud*** or whatever. Yoga is all about balance, my friend. Most of us living in this modern stressful world will find lots of benefits by practicing Yoga - I should know because it has helped me tremendously through many difficult moments. By applying full concentration and focus on what's happening to your body, yoga helps an individual balance and harmonize the body and its reaction to what's happening around us. All those words like asanas, pranyamas, mudras, bandhas.....blah blah don't mean a thing whether you're a Mus***, Chri*****, Bud*****t or whatever, because when in deep meditation, you are in complete control of your mind and whatever enters in. If you imagine it to be G**, then it's G**. If you imagine it to be Al***, then it's Al***. If you imagine it to be your blanket, then it's your fooking blanket. If you imagine it to be a goat, then it's a goat. You get the message. When we go through the daily motions of LIVING, imbalances occur. Your boss screams at you, you feel imbalanced because of anger. Your boyfriend tells you the relationship is off, you feel imbalanced. You get drunk, you're imbalanced. By focusing on balancing your thoughts and body, you reap the overall benefits of BALANCE and HARMONY within. The point is, there's really no reason for the governmental body to get all jiggied up about yoga because it benefits people - musl*** included. Meditation is all about finding yourself within and if practiced regularly, it brings you peace and harmony and once you find that peaceful place from within yourself, your body will respond. Meditation is not about uniting a person with a PARTICULAR G**; it's about uniting yourself with WHATEVER G** it is that you believe in. The main purpose of practicing yoga is to help the human mind understand and believe that the physical body is merely a vehicle that we're using and the mind is the driver. The driver will get tired after driving for so long and is stressed out because there's traffic jam up there. When the driver is tired, how's the fler gonna drive, right? So, the body will become one-kind. When the driver feels rejuvenated, then can drive like F1 driver even if vehicle is Kancil. And furthermore, I find the breathing exercises absolutely a gem because it helped me tremendously through very difficult times!! BLOODY HELL! What is wrong with breathing, then? OK, just for the sake of explaining this to those who have never tried before, try this. When you get really hissed-up about something, close your eyes and start breathing VERY DEEPLY, hold it for four seconds and then release it. Do this for about five times and if you don't feel a fooking difference, call me! Breathing, in fact, is a form of cleansing. I feel that the FAT** council in Malaysia is a little insecure about their own hold on Mus**** and the religion. Yoga is a completely innocent form of exercise and mind relaxation technique; not a religion-based exercise. For them to place a ban on Yoga is very very stupid. Very stupid indeed. How selfish do you think these people strong-arm the Musl*** in Malaysia just because yoga is from India? To deny these Musl*** the benefits of a holistic treatment just because they're insecure about their control over the Musl*** in our country? And heylow!!!!! Don't they have anything else better to fucking do in the country apart from banning something so holistically beneficial to people from whatever fooking religion??? We pay tax for you to do things like this ah???????????? Really cannot tahan di...NIA-FOOKING-MA!!!

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
