Note To My 10-Years-Younger Self

If I could rewind time, I mean REALLY am permitted to go back in time and find my 10-years-younger self, what would I say to Well, turns out, I have a lot to say to this person and the things that i tell her might change a thing or two.

For instance, I would tell her that too much coffee, like five cups of coffee without a drop of plain water, in the system is not good for health. I would tell her that dust mites do exist.

That drinking herself blind thinking that she looked better and felt better is an illusion.

That she is good enough. Or too good for that man. That she should just build some bloody self-esteem. That nobody can give it to her on a plate.

That she should stick to singing. And then write. That her music and songs are great the way they are.

That the purple dress looks horrible.

That she can cook. Try it.

That she should listen to her parents and other people's advice when it is dished out. They are gems and she should use them to her advantage.

That sacrificing herself and her pride for someone who behaves like a b@ast@rd is not worth it.

That doing charity work is fantastic. It doesn't always have to be about the money.

That she shouldn't cry over that guy. He has a receding hairline now.

That she should focus on having more fun...because when she gets to be my age, you have to fight for fun almost all the time.

That she can live without all those material things, stop wasting money and put them aside so that I can have more holidays.

But seriously, if I had the chance to rewind the hands of time, I don't think I will. Where's the fun in knowing everything, right?

p.s. But I might tell her that she should hook up with a programmer and come up with a site that lets other people post 140 characters to their followers. I think that's the one thing I will tell her.

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
