Whoa, cool, mom!

The Malaysian haze situation is getting completely out of hand. I mean, what use is a kitchen with a view when there's nothing but smoke outside? Spent all that money to cook on top of a stupid (small) hill for nothing. I walk out and I smell burning rubbish and the scent of scorched trees. Rubbish. I hope something is done fast. Being more than a lil miffed, I tinkled with this image to express my feelings. My sons crept up behind me and went, 'Whoa, cool! How'd you make the eyes, mom?' Sigh....I show him. 'First you create this circle, then this circle, then another circle, color this one black....TADA!' 'Whoa cool! What are you gonna do with that?' 'I'm putting it online. o'er here....' I put it on my facebook. Big mistake. Son reads, 'Faaaaccceeeeebook' 'Shit' 'Huh?' 'Nothing' 'Can I have a facebook, mom?' 'Yeah. I guess.' No rules regarding kids having facebook account. Just not going to add the fler into my account, that's all. See the above image? It says Son says, 'Whoa cool, mom! Can I have my' I hop to godaddy and check. Son 1's name is taken, Son 2's name is available. Son reads, 'Gggggooooooodaaadddy dot com. How come it's not gomommy since you're a mom?' ?????? 'Good idea. I'll start one. Go mommy, go mommy, go go go go....go mommy!' We laugh. Hahahaha. He forgot the facebook thing right. hehehehehe. 'Can I see my own website now?' 'Er....cough cough....not so fast, you know. There's lots of things you have to do. Think about how you would like to make it look first, ok?' 'Whoa cool!? So, what do I think about?' ?????? At least I earned their respect in a way after this. Kids said, 'Whoa cool, mom! You're the coolest mom I've ever met. (like he's got other moms to compare me with. snigger.) You can draw pictures, you have a website, you have a facebook....thanks for being my mom, mom.' I get a hug from both boys which I enjoyed. 'Now can I have a facebook??' urgh....tomorrow they're probably going to log into facebook, create their own account and start hunting mommy's facebook down.

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…

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS before you hit thirty

In terms of internet savviness, I think I am quite ‘there’ lah….a bit lah. Not a lot but a bit ‘there’, up there with some of some internet marketers out there but let’s face it, I’m not going to be swimming in cash yet unless I learn to do something extraordinary. REALLLLLYYYYY EXTRAORDINARY. But come to think of it, some of the biggest gazillionaires who made a whole lot of mullah from the Internet did not start out thinking it would make them millionaires. In fact, some of them did it for fun. Humor me, fun = lots of money. Let’s have lots of fun, then, instead of working our butts off for mediocre earnings, am I right? :-)That leaves me thinking…what can I do that is fun and can make me truckloads of money everyday? I want to hear the cash register going ka-ching, ka-ching every minute of the day and my sole responsibility is to have complete, unbashed fun. I took this list off somewhere, can’t remember where (trust me, I have all these things, ready to be blogged about, and I do…

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…
