Doing The Headstand

I've never been able to do the all. After one (rather) bad experience which involves (no injuries) a red-faced me hopping back onto my feet, tucking my shirt back into the top of my track pants and scuttling it out of a roomful of yoginis left me rather wistful about ever performing the headstand again.

But there was this page out of Yoga Journal that kept staring at me in the face and taunting me. Now, I do not have to worry about my shirt falling over my face, revealing my undergarments...what is there holding me back? And I have the wall...and it is legitimately called the SUPPORTED headstand (headstand for dummies)...and it has all the benefits (without the opportunity of building arm muscles). So, what is there stopping me?


So, onto the bed I went and upside down I go. At first, I could only stand the pressure of every ounce of blood in my body rushing to my face (and STAYING THERE at the mercy of gravity) for like 15 seconds but the headiness that it gives me after I become upright again was....addictive. I felt clearer in the head, more alive and the mind was less cluttered.

I now understand the reason why my son (the younger one) loves to be upside down whenever lying down on the sofa. Yes, it's true! He does it very often and I keep asking him, 'Why are you always upside down?'. His answer is simple - 'Because I like it.'

Now I know why. =)

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…

It's The Hormones Slinging All Over Ryan Gosling

Every time I do this, you know I'm PMS-ing. I am usually quite sane and well-behaved. I promise you this. But..... After watching The Notebook, I am fully convinced that Ryan Gosling is not a man. He's sex. Pure sex. And love, of course. I knew that.I love Ryan Gosling whether he looks like he just woke up on an island....ESPECIALLY when he's half-naked!!!!I love him even if he's kissing someone other than me (who he SHOULD be kissing)I love him even when he's got literally no hair.I love him eventhough without the beard thing, he looks like a schoolboy still growing out his pubic hair.I love Ryan Gosling to the core and then you tell me one other thing to make me fall in love with him even more! I feel signs of a mild heart attack already!He plays the piano. He sings. And he sings to KIDS for Halloween!I come we good women who are only sometimes a teeny weeny bit (and I mean really tiny bit) bitchy never get one of these? What?! We DO …
