Give Up, Say There's No Hope

I am taking a risk here but this is a heartfelt post that I feel should be written and posted. It's a touchy subject... It's sad when you come up with really chirpy statements to encourage the normal citizen to exercise their right to vote and they give you a solemn statement and makes you reel back for a few breathless seconds. 'What for? There's no hope for this country. Whatever we do, nothing's going to change. Accept it,' says he. This is coming from an everyday bloke walking around hand-in-hand with his girlfriend, all of...maybe....thirty-five years of age? So young and yet already have his head in a cloud of hopelessness? So soon? The fight's only just begun! But who can blame them? Look at the recent events...politicians with soiled pasts are found, kicked out, reinstated and gone on to win. Again and again....and yet AGAIN! Shameful, it is. So, who can blame them? However, here's why the fight must continue. They want us to give up and say 'there's no hope'. As long as we refuse to give up, they will continue to be on their toes. Let's look at it this way, if our pushing and shoving results in a better government, it's better for the future generation. This country will be a better place for your kids and my kids and their kids' kids. But the point is we must not EVER let them have a second's privilege of putting their guard down! Not one second. The moment their guard is down, we charge! At every opportunity that we can find, we will stab, spear and wound. They have disappointed us in the past and we have endured enough. As a citizen, we ought to stand up and make our voices be heard and please....let it not be 'there's no hope'. Either way, if they lose, there's a new government and there's hope. If we lose, they are on their toes and there's hope. Says who there's no hope? Says who we should quit? Whatever is stated here is merely my personal opinion about what is going on in a country that I dearly love. I wish only for the best and doing what I can.

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 out...to put it nicely...sucks.

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 market....man 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…
