Working It On The Dining Table

As I get older, I see and hear a lot more about health, lifestyle, exercise and food from other people. Yes, I almost always manage to get my morning yoga going but not always the evening part. Read: I would rather just veg, excuse me. 

There are all forms of exercising in this world and I am most interested in the ones that require minimal clothing, special attire (oh, you people with dirty minds, I hear you. LOL), equipment and stuff. Like using your body weight and gravity. Like using your luggage when traveling. Like using your wok when cooking. LOL. Kidding.

But the recent video introduced by Mashable I just saw really takes the cake. The people who came up with the idea is genius. I can't imagine maneuvering a 1kg fork and spoon around on the plate. It would most likely give you very muscly wrists. It will also tone down your arm in the long run.

And they aren't selling it cheap either....nearly USD$150 per set. That's about RM450. Expensive eating utensils but probably worth it if you are seriously going to use it in the long run.

Wonder who will come up with something for the legs next. Interesting stuff people come up with.

It's raining outside. Was gonna take the kids out for a walk in the neighborhood park when...sigh....anyway, it isn't as bad as some parts of US and UK. I heard people were, like, snowed in.

Take care, people,

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…

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…
