My SuperHeroes

The air here is unbelievable! Everything was fine throughout the day, for most parts of the day, that is, until towards the evening when the smoke got really heavy. REALLY Heavy as in it is creeping under the door, past walls, over roofs, into homes, into nose, into lungs and tries to make you pass out just from the anxiety itself.

Thankfully (me being pretty smart this time round), I ran out on Sunday and grabbed two air filters and purifiers for the homes. I was thinking it was for the rooms but during the day, I put it in the living room in hope of clearing the living room would also minimize the risk of having to inhale putrid air in the rooms.

Anyway, the air purifiers are real life savers. In the evening when it was obvious that the smoky air was penetrating the home, it picked things up a notch and cleared much of the smoke that was coming in!

Who would've known that such a device would be necessary in Malaysia, huh? And we all thought air was free. Nope, not here right now, not during this season every year. I deeply wish that there is something we can do to make air free in Malaysia around this time of the year.

Frankly, I am sleepy and don't really know what I am writing about right now. HAHAHA.

At this moment, I can smell a little bit of smoke in the room and there is a Level 1 warning on the air filter in my room right now. It's doing its job.

Let me introduce you to my heroes.



XOXO,
Appreciate the fresh air that you are breathing right now, wherever you are,

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…
