Stressful Week


It's been madcap all week long and considering the situation Malaysian politics is in, it has added stress....more than I want to admit, into my life. It just sucks. My client's also been upping the ante on me and knowing me, someone who does not know how to delegate too well, it piles up on my work plate.

The good thing is that I am now learning how to trust people to do their job. I don't have to hold my ideals as theirs. Sure, the writing that they do are...well, not as reader-friendly as I would prefer them to be but here's where 'I' come in. They can produce robotic stuff but I can edit them, right? The whole point is for them to help me research and find me information. And maybe put the words together in a non-embarrassingly stupid way. So, yes, I am now into delegating my work so that I don't pile on too much stress.

To counter the stress, I've developed the habit of doing my yoga in the morning. Oh, nothing lengthy and complicated. Just simple stretches that prepares the body for the onslaught of work is all. And on top of that, I've decided to take a picture of something I appreciate everyday. I'll post it if I have the time but these are the small changes that I am going to be doing.

Oh yes, I also relish the fact that I am pushing (myself) and the kids to exercise more during the weekends. Last week, we went hiking and oh, the complaints!!! LOL. But I survived them and so did the kids. We also went for badminton too. So, not so bad, eh?

Oh, for you out there who's been having spine and back problems, you might want to check out my all-new favorite pose, the Camel Pose. Don't ask me why it's called the CAMEL pose when it looks nothing like a camel. But it feels awesome, though, because I spend too much time sitting down in front of this computer. Try it and let me know how you feel afterwards.

Note: be gentle with yourself, don't injure your back or force the pose and bend forward and backward for a bit before attempting it if this is your first time.

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 out...to put it nicely...sucks.

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 market....man 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 mean.....aawwwwww......how 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 …
