After all that drinking and eating...

I had a fab time last night at a relative's house and man, the drinks were really pouring in. We had an uncle who loves his drinks who wanted to go off early because he came early but then because he came early, he started on the drinks early so by the time we are starting, we were talking all sorts of BS (thanks to the alcohol - teehee), he had ENOUGH and was ready to go off.

So, he was basically standing up, sitting down, one more, last one, FOR SURE, stand up, sit down, yak yak, stand up, sit down, one more for the road, finish, stand up, sit down....for the loooooonnnggggeeeesssstttt time. You know what that is like, right? He had somewhere else to go after that but he ended up staying.

And by the time he was REALLY READY to go, he had the longest walk to the door. And then an even longer walk to the car. Not because of the distance but because he can't stop talking. Hahahaha....that is so funny!!

Tipsy is good but we are all very responsible people who won't let a man like that drive home. His daughter drove because the wife (who also participated) also had a jolly good time. =)

I detox on a regular basis but stop every Chinese New Year knowing that the activities during the festive season would be like this. But it has more or less officially come to an end. No more insane face-stuffing and drinking. Time to get back on the detoxing and yoga-ing.

So, a person's got to do what a person's got to do to get back on track, right? This time, I choose this.

No, this is not an ad (I WISH!!!) but Juvanex, if you feel like paying me after reading this, much appreciated, thanks! This thing ain't cheap.

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…
