Time For Change

John Wooden once said this, 'Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.' I guess if this is the case, I am destined for success, eh? :-) Kidding. Anyway, I am feeling a lot like throwing myself in front of a fast-moving truck because spent the whole day with the kids rock-climbing. No, not the real thing! You kiddin' me! It's a man-made one that is really safe even if you fall. Maybe you'll get a fractured bone but no one ever dies from falling off the makeshift thing. Anyway, I come home after dropping the kids off at grandpas and grandmas and get right to work. I keep thinking to myself, 'This can't be it! I don't have time all the time! Where the f-ck did all my time go to?' Everyone else has more time than me. There must be something wrong. I should be making millions and having a stress-free day out with my kids. (yeah, right. Humor me, let me kid myself for a bit, awright?) Instead, I spend it worrying about my kids falling off the makeshift rock and the piling work. This is what made me realize that there needs to be change. I need to work smarter. I need to trust more people. I can only count on one hand the number of people I rely on to help me get work done right now, I should be using more people. I won't make millions but at least, I can work more efficiently, I think. Right. I've heard this all before (from yours truly) but I think I need to hammer this fact in. *reaching for hammer*

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…
