Changed the layout a little bit

So, I have gone and changed the layout a little bit. The previous one is getting old on me and furthermore, it's just a reflection of how 'ego' being human is...feature your face everywhere, including the banner, like you're a celebrity. Sigh....well, I was thinking of being a celebrity one time...when I was seven. You'd think I have outgrown that, huh?

No, this blog now is going to be more about life, (yes still me - what, you think I write for money now? Well...I do, but....this is my blog), the things I've seen, my kids, cooking and basically, being thankful about the things around me.

I think we take too many things that we have for granted. And when you are not grateful, you forget how to be happy about having your children around when there are parents out there who had their kids' murdered or kidnapped. You forget how fortunate you are when there are people crying their souls to sleep because they might not have enough to eat tomorrow.

You know, these very simple things. SO! This is my big project - The Thankfulness Project. I am tempted to get a new domain name but, urgh, I have to many. ANOTHER ONE?? How am I ever going to manage all of them. As it is, I was just tweeting that I have so many twitter accounts logged into my tweetdeck that I can never drunktweet again.

It's a joke, alright? I EVER drunktweet...or drink...or party....or have fun. That's for unhappy people, right? Anyway...where was I?

Oh yeah, so I decided not to burden myself with another website (as TEMPTING AS IT IS - this is the tech geek Marsha speaking) and stuck with this 'category' thing. To find ThankfulnessProject stuff, just head over to the category page.

:-) You get the picture. So, this is a change for me and my blog and I think I am gonna just be thankful that I am thankful.

Thankfully yours,

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…
