Non-stop Raining

The whole week, it's been raining in a timely manner. Right about 3pm to 4pm is when the sky will start getting dark. And this is on top of of knowing that it has been kind of hell in New York and New Jersey. Anyway, as gloomy as it has been, we all try to get by as well as we can. This post is, therefore, more of a pic-blog.

Sons' been waiting anxiously for Angry Birds Star Wars and it finally came out on Nov 8, 2012! Call us geeks but this version is pretty neat and interesting! I love Hans Solo and Princess Leia angry birds, by the way =) Who would have thought that one fine day that weak little Princess Leia who needed protection from everything and anything would have some form of POWER.


Gloomy skies ahead. I really wish the sky would rain only when we are asleep or something, you know what I mean?


Getting kids back from school and parents stuck there in the rain.


Hanging out with a couple of friends for some drinks at a local bar. It is sometimes fun to just hang out and make fun of each other. By the way, I hate friends who knows I am afraid of anything and everything and lets a stranger place a fake spider on her shoulder! hahaha...


This is just an observation...that this thing continues to exist and people still use it! Seriously, maybe we have been pampered with smartphone here, smartphone there that we forget that there are people who can't afford a simple phone. I saw a woman use this payphone...for real!


By the way, I can't believe that I have a special category in this blog for Raymond Lam...gosh, what was I thinking?!?! LOL.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday, folks!
XOXO,
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…
