My Baby Wanna Be Cool Too

It's just so cute that I can't resist not posting it up...lest I forgot such innocent statements when they're older.
As all boys are, my kids are into all those cool alien things and Pokemon as well. It's hard for a mommy to keep up with her boys. It's different when you're a mother to daughters and you can get whatever's on your daughter's mind. But when your kids think booger-diggin in utterly so cool, fast cars, invading aliens, fallen buildings, crashing motorbes....sigh....I just find it so hard to get. 
One of the things they're really into these days is Ben 10 Alien Force. Ben 10 started off with a young boy who discovered this watch that stuck to him and allowed him to change into 10 different aliens to conquer the evil world. I have to admit it's kinda cool. 
But as Ben 10's audience grew, Ben 10 has to grow too, hence, there's Ben 10 alien force whereby Ben is now older, much wiser and have a team of people with him to fight evil alien forces. 
Anyway, my kids are really into it and I made it a point to listen to the theme song and find out how to play the song on the piano. I have to say that it's a hit with them!!! They're like, "COOL, mom! Teach me how to play Ben 10 song, MOMMMM!!!!"
Tell me about it....I must be one of the coolest moms in the world for learning how to play the song just to get her kids interested, eh? Well, it's a cool song, so.... :-) And I've always had this penchant for looking up chords and tunes to songs that I like, so.... 
However, I gave my kids boxes and paper plates for them to create things with's school holidays, and my elder son came up with a monster to combat Ben 10 and it was kinda cool, I have to admit. Younger son thinks it's cool too and took his box to draw on it. 
Right before we slept, Younger son looked completely forlorn and I asked him what was going on. "Mom, it's no fun. Elder son always comes up with cool things and my things always look so cute. It's no fun"!
I burst out laughing when I saw what he drew on his box and plate. This is what he drew on the paper bag I gave him. 
I bet Ben 10's gonna run off scurrying after fighting this paperbag!! Isn't it so CUTE!!!!!??? LOL! He asked me why I am laughing and I said, "It's so cute!" He doesn't seem to think it's a good thing.

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
