Childhood Food


I think everyone's got one...or two hot childhood fave home-made food. I've got too many coz just like everyone else, I happen to think that my mom is the best cook EVA! EVA EVA EVARRRR...

But she doesn't cook much now coz she says that it is tiring for her to cook and besides, all her kids are no longer living with her and she thinks it is a waste of time to cook for just 2 people. I think that is a complete waste of talent.

Anyway, I'll name two of my favourite childhood food. One, is fattening as hell sugar-coated donuts. I know they're sinful as anything you can ever imagine. All that sugar and all that carbohydrates. But when you are a kid, you don't worry so much about how much weight you put on or if your backside is going to sag. It more or less happens around the teenage years, if I do remember correctly.

The second one is another sinful indulgence....buttery pancake. It has to be with lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of butter because that is the only way you are going to make the outer edges of the pancake savory and crispy (we always eat the outsides first - all around it).

When we come home from school, the smell of donuts being deep-friend in a pool of oil or pancake simmering over low heat in the kitchen often send us kids into a frenzy. We pop into the kitchen every so often to ask, 'Is it ready yet?' and if we get really impatient, my mom would have to bring them out to the dining table and then run back in to finish more batches. As we wolf them down, mom replenishes them. Sometimes, we leave poor mom with nothing.

Terrible kids, we were. :-)

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
