Getting The Move ON

I love yoga but I also love the high that I get whenever I am done with a cardio thing. It gives you a healthier 'I can change the world!!!!!!!' feeling ever. I don't get to do much cardio, to be honest, but I try my best. For personal reasons, running is not for me. I tried hiking but a nagging backache...well...but when it has got to be done, one's got to find a way, right?

So, I bought a bike so that I can force my kids to do it too. Many people earnestly warned me that the bike is going to turn into a towel holder, belt hanger, and just a nuisance wherever I eventually choose to place it.

It has been four to six months now and so far, we...well, I have put the bike to more or less to good use. Somehow, getting the kids to get on it is as painful as getting your molars out, without the painkillers.

Usually, during the middle of the day when my energy level drops tremendously, I switch the TV on or perch my laptop up on the sofa, load my KDrama just to get some cycling done. If I want the added bonus of wind in my face, then I can just pull the standing fan closer to me la. Make do, right? ^.^

And then I finish it off with a good measure of yoga and it makes me feel like brand new.

Don't you get that feeling too?

Anyway, discipline is one thing, cycling past the first five minutes is the hardest thing.

And the funny thing is that once you have passed the I-think-maybe-not-now-I-have-got-tons-of-things-waiting-for-me-to-do stage, you don't want it to stop. Every time I am near my goal, I will want to push just a little further. It's a good thing, right?

Finishing off a session of yoga is an added bonus. It is like you are filled with euphoria and then yoga balance and calms you down.

No wait, I actually finish off with a shower. THEN, life is complete.

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 …
