It's All In the Bacon

I try my best to eat as clean as possible...most of the time, in fact, I was almost vegetarian the entire week, reminding myself that I am doing this for myself and the animals of the world. lol. Talk about OTT. But mostly because I didn't feel like eating heavy meats. There's the occasional clam and ikan bilis (anchovies) in my fried meehoon but I figured it was fine.

Eating vegetarian, as you might have guessed, is not exactly very filling and you get hungry like only the whole day after that so, some days I give myself permission to just pig out. Literally. And my favorite way to pig out is....bacon. Pun intended.

It is so versatile that you can eat it just like that or add it to fried rice or pizza or just fix yourself a nice little sandwich with bacon and Tabasco sauce and O....M....G....

Of course, I know it's fattening but it is one of the very few guilty pleasures that I sometimes let myself have...and trust me, there are not too many on the list.

But did you know that bacon wasn't 'born' in the West...but in China? And during some emperor times or something? Did you also know that 43% of people reportedly prefer to have bacon over sex? Or that some compounds in bacon can boost the 'potential intellect' of unborn babies when taken by pregnant mothers?

I sure didn't. All I knew was that it is delicious and that it is one of my most sinful behaviors from the kitchen.

Here are 17 fun facts about bacon from

So, bacon, anyone?

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…

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS before you hit thirty

In terms of internet savviness, I think I am quite ‘there’ lah….a bit lah. Not a lot but a bit ‘there’, up there with some of some internet marketers out there but let’s face it, I’m not going to be swimming in cash yet unless I learn to do something extraordinary. REALLLLLYYYYY EXTRAORDINARY. But come to think of it, some of the biggest gazillionaires who made a whole lot of mullah from the Internet did not start out thinking it would make them millionaires. In fact, some of them did it for fun. Humor me, fun = lots of money. Let’s have lots of fun, then, instead of working our butts off for mediocre earnings, am I right? :-)That leaves me thinking…what can I do that is fun and can make me truckloads of money everyday? I want to hear the cash register going ka-ching, ka-ching every minute of the day and my sole responsibility is to have complete, unbashed fun. I took this list off somewhere, can’t remember where (trust me, I have all these things, ready to be blogged about, and I do…

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…
