Failed Protectors

I really felt my anger simmer when I was reading this news the other day.

“The victim claimed her mother did nothing to fend her from the sexual attacks.
“She also claimed that she was threatened by her attacker and could not tell anyone about the incident,” said a police source. - News from New Straits Times

I remember talking to one of my neighbors about having a daughter, she has one. She told me that she has talked to her husband before, that if their marriage did not work out, she is willing to let her daughter follow the him. Her reason was simple - if she were to get married or find someone to be her new partner, she would never know what kind of man he would be despite sleeping and living with him. A man is a man, according to her, and their savage moral-bending ability is always just a layer of skin away from emerging. He could harm her daughter without her knowing so, it would be better for her daughter to stay with the father instead. This is her way of protecting her daughter, a very strong instinct to protect her daughter, by way of separation.

That sickened but enlightened me. Her reasoning is valid. But in the above story, the man is the victim's father and the very person she could count on to stop the abuse was her flesh and blood protector mother.

I can tell you something about the maternity instinct. It is cold, really cold. Maternity instinct can kill attackers when their children is under attack. It can also ruin marriages and tear families apart but it also ensures the children's safety under all circumstances.

But what happened to the maternity instinct of the mother mentioned above? Does she have none whatsoever (which is possible, some people really have none and should opt for childlessness. Not saying it in a bad way, but in a good way, everyone has his or her purpose in life)? Was she subdued to a point that she dares not voice herself in the face of such a powerful instinct to protect her daughter? Does she not care for her daughter? Or worse yet, was she watching in glee (good forking Lord!)?!

As for the father, a person like this should never have children EVER! This is his daughter, his flesh and blood, why is he even doing this to her? People who rape their own flesh and blood are cold-blooded creatures that should never breed. They should be denied the chance to have children and when they are jailed for such crimes, I hope they pay for it in more ways than one in there.

In such cases, I hope Karma is the kind of Bitch that we know she can be...and MUCH, MUCH MORE.

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…
