That Stupid Phone Call

This morning, I screamed obscenities into my son's phone like a mad person. Good start, right? The reason I did that was that my son got a couple of phone calls from this number who spoke in Malay. Despite my son telling him that he doesn't speak Malay, he kept calling. And continued calling till this morning when we were heading out to school.

My son, not knowing what he was saying, kept hanging up on the dude but he kept calling.

So, I picked up the call for him.

First, I told the dude in English and Malay that we do not know him and not to call again. He called again and we kept asking him who he was. There are a lot of people who are out looking for innocent girls to hit on and do funky stuff with all the time. I am aware of that but is this it? Is this their modus operandi? Calling random numbers, hoping that the number belongs to a girl and move with that? Maybe I am paranoid? Maybe I am jaded? Maybe I am just....don't know...maybe I have seen too much? Maybe we should just ignore the number.

But he called again and then I got a bit pissed off and asked the guy what he wanted and he hung up.

I called and texted him back and asked him in Malay what he wanted. And you know what he said? He said 'you'. You want ME?!!!?

WTF. I shouted all obscenities at him in front of my guard house and asked him to choose another person to agitate and basically asked him to EFF OFF. He said 'sorry sorry' and then hung up. What on earth is this?! Are they nuts? What kind of people do we have here? Not just in this country but in this world? But anyway,  I know there isn't much that I can do to prevent such an instance in the future but it is depressing to know that we have such beings within the human race.

Then again, we have an amazing 'government' in denial and robbing people in broad daylight...what can we expect, right?

Have a good day, everyone.

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…

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS before you hit thirty

In terms of internet savviness, I think I am quite ‘there’ lah….a bit lah. Not a lot but a bit ‘there’, up there with some of some internet marketers out there but let’s face it, I’m not going to be swimming in cash yet unless I learn to do something extraordinary. REALLLLLYYYYY EXTRAORDINARY. But come to think of it, some of the biggest gazillionaires who made a whole lot of mullah from the Internet did not start out thinking it would make them millionaires. In fact, some of them did it for fun. Humor me, fun = lots of money. Let’s have lots of fun, then, instead of working our butts off for mediocre earnings, am I right? :-)That leaves me thinking…what can I do that is fun and can make me truckloads of money everyday? I want to hear the cash register going ka-ching, ka-ching every minute of the day and my sole responsibility is to have complete, unbashed fun. I took this list off somewhere, can’t remember where (trust me, I have all these things, ready to be blogged about, and I do…

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…
