Google's +1 May Change Algorithm Of Search Results

It's been in the news for a while and you might have caught wind about this one if you're a tech follower like me. Google is set to rival Facebook's 'like' button. But I suspect that this is going to be bigger than anything. It is set to change the whole Google algorithm.

I might be wrong but Google's always been looking for ways to firm up search results knowing full well that the results are often slave to what webmasters and search engine experts will do to manipulate it so that they can reach the top 3 pages of given keyword search result page. I was in it when we planted keywords into Meta tags, I was in it when we hid keywords in the background. I was in it too when SPAM wasn't an offense. I was one of the people who tirelessly spammed search engines because back then, there were no (not much, anyway) repercussions. Nothing to fear.

Search engines knew this but I guess, Google's the only one to really take the offenses seriously. And they are fanatical about REAL results. The '+1' (it doesn't really make sense to name it +1, personally speaking) button will also alter the way results are shown in the future, I speculate. The number of +1 will be taken into account when the Google engine goes through the database.

Very interesting. =) So, here's my first +1.

And oh, I soooo did not notice that it is already out there at the bottom of every page of the blog. Ah yes, Google IS Blogger. My bad.

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…
