Why Do I Care?

Being slightly (OK, quite a lot, actually!) Zen-ish and a believer of peace, calm, power and strength in social fairness, people might wonder why I would care about Malaysian politics. Why, when i have enough to feed myself and my family. Why, when i do not need to?

In my house, everybody gets everything fair and square. I am very very particular about it. If one boy gets two pieces of chicken, the other gets the same. No more, no less, unless the other boy did not mind or did not want anymore. The concept is that both of them are treated fairly and mommy favors BOTH.

Do you get the picture?

Although I am not a lawyer, I believe that when my father asked me what course I wanted to study in college, I said law, there was a reason for that. No, not because I have a big mouth and no, not because I wanted power or make loads of money. I chose law because I hate injustice.

It is even in my Zen-ish belief that I can't sit there and watch one person bully another person without standing up and saying something about it.Can you sit there and pretend that is nothing is wrong when your conscience is screaming at you, 'SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT!!!!'

I can't.

Malaysia govt should not try to snuffle people out. Be open about things, stay positive and take every single criticism as a constructive one. They live in consistent fear of losing their power, their rights, their money...therefore, they try to shut everyone up with laws.

The whole twitter fiasco is a joke. If there is nothing to hide, there is nothing to fear. If there is nothing to fear, then what does it matter what people say?

There's a Chinese saying that goes like this, 'You have to know that you have not done anything wrong towards your God, your Land and your own conscience'. If that is true, then let people talk and it should be OK. Yes, there needs to be a law in place in order to ensure that there is peace amongst the races in Malaysia, true, but shutting people up, things are bottled up.

And you know what happens when people bottle up their feelings. You don't? Ask a psychiatrist.

We have been bottling up our feelings and true opinions for far too long. Maybe, just maybe, now is a good time to let them talk peacefully. Let it out. If we disagree, then we agree to disagree and we find a solution. I am pretty sure we can slowly find one that does not make either one go crazy.

That is how mature people handle problems on an every day basis.

BTW, why do I care? Because I have a right to care.

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
