Disentangling The Cyber World

I have to get this out of my system – there’s ANOTHER social networking site that I have to learn up about? Aren’t we done with coming up with yet ANOTHER cool social networking site that we have COOLER features, BETTER control over what our friends see and read, more REALISTIC stats, etc?
We are not done yet?

What prompted this was the discovery of Pinterest…which I have, sadly so, requested an invite from. I have no idea why I requested for an invite but I guess it’s just my industry. I could say that it is a work thing that I have to learn about so that when experts talk about it, I don’t look dumb. I won’t use it….but maybe I will. I don’t know anymore. I’m lost in cyber world.

Anyway, here’s the lowdown or nutshell or whatever you want to call it about the whole online social networking thing.

Let’s start with my favorite one, the simplest one of all.

Twitter – This is where you talk to walls. When you are stressed out, you tweet. When you need to complain to a company and get them to listen, you tweet. When you hate your friend but want to be discreet about it, you tweet. When you are desperate for a sale, you tweet. When you are in the bathroom and are bored, you tweet.

You get the picture? Right. So, basically, with Twitter, anything goes. Except when you are a celebrity or someone important, then you have to be more careful about the things that you say there. It’s really addictive and crazy out there in Twitterverse.

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…
