Forming Good Habits

I visit Yogajournal quite a bit, for a very obvious reason, of course, but there was this article in the site that I would like to share with you guys. It's called 'Track Your Habits'; quite an interesting read, I would have to say.

Our habits determine pretty much the outcome that we get in the end. I know that but sometimes, it is really hard to stick to something despite knowing that it is good for you. Ever tried to take one tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar every single day? Yup. If you've tried this then you will know the cough, phlegm and vomit inducing aftertaste is not something people usually look forward to. But we know it is good for us, don't we?

So, I recently downloaded an app from Google Playstore called 'Routinely' and I have been using it to keep track of my routines. The most important and useful feature of this app is that it has a reminder which will prompt you to do something so, schedule stuff in and don't dismiss them until you actually got them done. I use the app for stuff like 'take your vitamins', 'walk around and stretch', 'get on the bike', 'yoga', and yes, 'take a break'. Don't laugh, I actually need a reminder for that. LOL

The other thing is that when you leave a habit undone for some time, it will turn, first, yellow, and then it turns red. I don't like to see things turn red which often means URGENT AND IT NEEDS YOUR ATTENTION, AND YOU ARE NOT DOING WHAT YOU SET OUT TO DO.

So, if you want to kickstart some good habits, try Routinely. Simple to use, the interface is absolutely clean and the 'check' box is large. It makes you feel good when you are done and everything is in green color again.

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…

It's The Hormones Slinging All Over Ryan Gosling

Every time I do this, you know I'm PMS-ing. I am usually quite sane and well-behaved. I promise you this. But..... After watching The Notebook, I am fully convinced that Ryan Gosling is not a man. He's sex. Pure sex. And love, of course. I knew that.I love Ryan Gosling whether he looks like he just woke up on an island....ESPECIALLY when he's half-naked!!!!I love him even if he's kissing someone other than me (who he SHOULD be kissing)I love him even when he's got literally no hair.I love him eventhough without the beard thing, he looks like a schoolboy still growing out his pubic hair.I love Ryan Gosling to the core and then you tell me one other thing to make me fall in love with him even more! I feel signs of a mild heart attack already!He plays the piano. He sings. And he sings to KIDS for Halloween!I come we good women who are only sometimes a teeny weeny bit (and I mean really tiny bit) bitchy never get one of these? What?! We DO …
