Lazy Saturday

If you've been following my twitter, you would know what a horribly busy and stressful week it's been for me. To top it all off, quite possibly, I've developed slipped disc as well. Yipee. Well, I don't know for sure yet but the numbness is a constant reminder for me to get a date with a Chiropractor. That or the hospital.

With wild pictures of a scalpel in my face, I think I will see the Chiropractor first.

Anyway, I decided that I will think of nothing, do nothing, work at nothing and just be an incredibly lazy sloth on Saturday. The workaholic in me will be restrained, tied up in a lonely dark cell until my sanity says it can come back out.

Seriously, work really got to me. Not that I am complaining about having work. I keep reminding myself about all those people out there who are not as fortunate as I am to have people pump work into my work station. People who trust me. Man, in this competitive world of business, I am thankful for that although I do not have enough money for a trip to New York or buy myself a mansion but there's food on the table.

The only thing we did on Saturday was watch TV, read a book (my mission to finish Lipstick Jungle continues. Who knew how such an interesting series can be so boring to read about. I mean, there's just too much corporate stuff and too few kinky things).

And then out of the blue, an idea popped into my head and we hopped into the car for a nice tub of ice-cream....and ended up having frozen yogurt, which is FAB! Less fat is more joy, I always say.

To economize, we shared a regular-sized tub (elder son not being too enthusiastic about trying new stuff)

This is not a paid blog post but I thought since they gave me a free fridge magnet, I'll give them a little bit of free exposure, not as if they need it.

Oh, what joy it was. Splendid fresh, delicious, icy-cold, light and smooth frozen yogurt. Bliss on a Saturday. :)

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 crime, I f…

Grilled Salmon With Unagi Sauce

I always disagree with people who say that they are lazy to cook, it's too hard, no time, too difficult, easier to eat out....etc. I can't agree because I have found multiple ways to cook simple, cheap meals without causing too much of a ruckus to my schedule. All it takes is a little bit of planning ahead and research. And a sense of humor when it turns put it

Anyway, here's one simple one that ANYONE (kids included) can cook up. Seriously simple and easy.

I love salmon but my kids don't like the smell and texture. But that doesn't mean that I can't go out to the market and spend RM11 on ONE single piece of salmon fish and make MYSELF one, right? Kids can have the overnight pizza. :-)
This is fresh from the oh man! I LOVE IT!!
Wash it properly, de-bone the thing if you want to but I just left everything the way it is and just covered the fish with some of the following:-

Yup, salt, pepper and McCormick's season-all powder…

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, remember th…
