The Anonymous Lawyer (Book)

The Anonymous Lawyer is a book written by Jerry Blachman some years back and I've just picked the book randomly out of a book sale. It's a very refreshing piece of work because it's written mainly in the form of blog posts and emails. The beginning of the book, I found them amusing because the Anon Lawyer was hiding his identity and making up names for the people he encounters in his work place....most of the time exagerating the shit out of things! :-) The writer inserts reality via email exchanges with his niece and readers of his blog. Towards the middle, he softened up a little bit on the criticisms and story-making and you start to feel a little better about reading the accounts of a lawyer who taunts people about their looks, their abilities and their judgment. I actually smiled when he found some time to play with his son. And then he crumbles. Well, he got too excited about making it to the post of CHAIRMAN and it brought him down. I wished that he slept with his Bombshell partner-in-crime and I wished that things panned out for him. That's the sucker for happy endings in me for you....I have the audacity to feel sorry for the Anon Lawyer despite his indescribably dishonest ways and outwardly ludicrous personality. Well, in the end, he's just a lunatic who deserves to lose everything he's ever worked for. But it doesn't stop me from wondering where he went from there, you know. Anyway, the Anon Lawyer book may have ended but his blog lives on. For your information, the Anon Lawyer continues to be maintained today.

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 put it

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 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…
