I’ve Lost My Name

I am sad beyond words. Look at my FB status…it says that I am heartbroken. Oh, don’t worry, friends. Nobody broke my heart….no man (or woman) is capable of doing such harm to my consistently broken heart now. For some reason, someone decided that something is of value to him or her and it belongs solely to me. I am going to fight this one out. It’s my name for heaven’s sake! I lost my domain name www.marshamaung.com. I don’t know what the domain name would mean to the person who snatched it from under my nose! I mean, what are the chances of this person having the same exact name as me? I’ve promoted this name so much in the past that I have to fight to get it back now. The blame? Godaddy. I’ve been their loyal customer for the longest time and I can’t believe they did not do enough to warn me that the domain name has expired. I’ve tried to change my email address on their records before and it didn’t work. I registered my creativejooz.com email with them. I don’t own the domain name any longer, hence, I cannot receive notifications from that email. And I’ve tried to change the email in their records for the longest time and have failed. They probably tried to notify me using that email. And I was not notified. For your information, I don’t make it a point to log into my godaddy account all the time for no apparent reason, unless I wanted to purchase a new domain name, upgrade something or pay for hosting. Other than that, I don’t log into godaddy and I don’t make it a point to check the expiry dates of the domain names that I have under my account. So, now I’ve lost my own domain name and I will fight it out with this person to get it back. I know it’s my fault (not intentionally, but it still is) but I just have to get it back. I’ve spent too many years shedding blood, tears and sweat promoting the domain name and it just doesn’t make sense for me to let it go. And anyway, it IS my name.

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
