This Is, Indeed, Our Temporary Home

I don't know about the rest of you but whenever I feel down, this song never fails to remind me to focus on enjoying every single moment that we have here on the planet. We are not meant to be permanent here, we are meant to live, learn and then take it all back HOME.



I salute the song writer as well as Carrie Underwood for her amazing rendition.

Temporary Home
Little boy, 6 years old 
A little too used to bein' alone. 
Another new mom and dad,another school, 
Another house that'll never be home.
When people ask him how he likes this place... 
He looks up and says, with a smile upon his face, 

"This is my temporary home 
It's not where I belong. 
Windows and rooms that I'm passin' through. 
This is just a stop, on the way to where I'm going. 
I'm not afraid because I know this is my 
Temporary Home." 

Young mom on her own.
She needs a little help, got nowhere to go. 
She's lookin' for a job, lookin' for a way out, 
Because a half-way house will never be a home. 
At night she whispers to her baby girl, 
"Someday we'll find our place here in this world." 

"This is our temporary home. 
It's not where we belong. 
Windows and rooms that we're passin' through. 
This is just a stop, on the way to where we're going. 
I'm not afraid because I know this is our 
Temporary Home." 

Old man, hospital bed, 
The room is filled with people he loves. 
And he whispers don't cry for me, 
I'll see you all someday. 
He looks up and says, "I can see God's face." 

"This is my temporary Home 
It's not where I belong. 
Windows and rooms that I'm passin' through.
This was just a stop,on the way to where I'm going. 
I'm not afraid because I know... this was 
My temporary home." 

This is our temporary home.

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…
