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,

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
