I'll Never Be Beautiful Enough

Is it any wonder that throughout my years of growing up that I never once felt like I was going to be beautiful enough? Maybe that is the reason behind my (insane) hatred for Megan Fox...well, I think her marketing concept is ditzy, though. But at the end of the day, this is how superficial men and women are. The attack is not on men alone, but women is pretty much the same. We want handsome men, tall, with money, if possible with a mansion, who is loving and caring, understands our needs but also drives a Jaguar around.

*roll eyes*

There was once a man who told me that he thought that I was beautiful and I burst into tears. No, seriously, because deep inside me, when someone tells me that I was beautiful, the spotlight would instantly be turned towards all the ugly things that I could think of about myself. I can't help it, I grew up with this.

People grow up and learn a few things or two about being beautiful. At the end of the day, I have failed to notice all the beautiful things about me that has nothing to do with what people can see with their eyes. I have many beautiful things inside of me that people can feel with their hearts instead.


And that is part of the reason why I have denounce all superficial things...not that I don't still like pretty clothes and make-up but I have more or less accepted myself for what I am and finally think that, 'YES, I AM BEAUTIFUL'.

That is because one person may think that Jessica Alba is hot, another might think she looks cock-eyed in some photos. So, physical beauty is very subjective. But when you are beautiful on the inside, it is universal. Like kindness, being caring, ability to share, friendliness, a smile and friendship. It is when you are beautiful in that way that you are universally beautiful to almost everyone in your life.

So, yes, I may never be beautiful enough for some people but I am beautiful enough for the people I love, care about and that is enough.

Smile because it is the most compelling beauty EVER. Reach out to your friends and help them even when it goes unappreciated. One day, they will. Forgive people and your enemy for their mistakes because they are going through a journey too. Accept your friends for who they are because they are here to complement you, not compliment you.

And finally, be beautiful on the inside because that is THE ONLY WAY to forever be beautiful.

But let's have one for the road! :-PPPP

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
