Friday Funny Was Not Funny

Not been blogging much because I just don't feel very funny these days but on the topic of funny, I think I need to clarify some things here. I did the clarifying on my FB the other day and I said in my status update that I sometimes just don't want to add some people on Facebook because there are 'funny' people out there in this world.

You know 'funny' as in 'a little weird'? Yeah.

I say this based on experience. I used to add every single donkey and monkey who comes into my website or blog and add me on Facebook but I don't anymore because there were times when I said something personal or something that was my own personal opinion, I got flamed real bad.

Well, I could ignore these people but it smarts sometimes and I don't like that because I don't know them at all.

Like this Easter and Good Friday thing, I posted something which I thought was funny.

I said 'Fridays are good. I love Fridays. Coincidentally, tomorrow is good Friday. *cheers*'

Now, let me clarify that the *cheers* was meant for Fridays are good, I love Fridays but it appeared at the end of the sentence, so, this man told me off because he thought I was cheering because it was Good Friday. I wanted him to cut me some slack on the Christianity front because I wasn't really in-the-know about what Good Friday was about. 


I knew it was something about the resurrection of Christ and stuff and that is why they named it Good Friday but I also knew that it was sometimes known as Black Friday. I should've given more thought as to why it was both Good and Black.


Fact is, I didn't. My kids' school was celebrating Good Friday so I didn't need to wake up the next morning, hence, I was ready for some celebrating, man!! Every body else has to wake up on Good Friday and I don't - the world loves me!


That was the sentiment - and yet, that guy took it the wrong way and called me 'naturally stupid' and also a 'mental midget'. I apologized and he continued to slam me. Sigh....such cultural tolerance amongst us. 


It. Was. Unintentional. (but he said it was unimpressive, unfunny and unintelligent.)


See why I don't want to add every donkey and monkey that adds me on Facebook now?

Well, you are right in NOT EVER adding any donkeys, because your story has just spilled out one of the many tons of reasons why.

Seriously, why was he so hung up, about your status message. I hope you have blocked, deleted, and marked him, as forever a donkey spammer.

Happy Good Friday, anyways. Even if today's not Friday, and I don't know the true meaning of thee dayy!

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
