The Legend That Is Whitney



So....Whitney's dead, huh?

You know, it hurts so much that I don't really wanna talk about it. It feels like picking at a wound that you have that is hurting you bad but you've run out of ponstan.

But I'll say a few things about Whitney here. She's a gift to all of us. She is the kind of talent that was granted to us and her songs, her voice will never leave our hearts. She may leave the world, but she will never leave per se because she's left so much behind for us. Let's just continue to endlessly enjoy that.

And you know what hurts the most? That she led a publicly turbulent life as an entertainer (it's common when you are an entertainer) and as a person and some people made harsh criticism when she failed to pick herself up. They condemned her. Said bad things about her but then now that she's dead, they are backing their way out by saying nice things. Huh.

When you love someone like some people love Whitney for her talent, we cringe when there are bad news about her. We want to see her get up on her feet. We will her to come back to the entertainment world. We want her back We want to see her shine in all of her magnificence. We want to see her open up her arms, close her eyes and turn her head towards the sky when people applaud at the end of her performance. We want to hear the silence in the crowd when she sings. We want to hear the roar at the end of her singing and when she goes quiet. Well, it's quiet now.

She's not gonna get back up now. For real.

RIP, Whitney. Thank you for leaving behind a trail of legacy that will serve to whet our appetite for whatever's Whitney. You're a true legend.

Love,
Marsha

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…

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…
