Personal : When Earth is what Earth Feels Like

“Be willing to be a beginner every single morning.” 
― Meister Eckhart
We've always gone out for evening walks, after making dinner, after rounding everything up, after winding things down. But my kids' been making their own morning walks or runs on their own, WITHOUT me, without me knowing simply because they woke up earlier and refused to wake me up because they want to be BADASS on their own they don't want to disturb my sweet slumber.

But on some days, I wake up earlier than them and today, I simply jumped out of bed at 5.30am because I died in bed at 10-odd-pm zonked out earlier than anyone else so, I decided to wake them up. Hey, join me, I'm awake. Let's all wake up, I don't care what time you slept, that's YOUR problem. LOL.

So, we walked to the convenience store at the petrol station behind the home to get coffee and then walked to the nearby park and took a few rounds.


The neighborhood has a lot of early waker-uppers, man! Mostly elderly people, but still, I live in a very healthy neighborhood, it seems. It's something I've never noticed before because...well...I guess, I didn't care for the early worm. I still don't but I think I am beginning to grow a liking for it.

A walk around the park in the morning is so much more refreshing than in the evening. It doesn't have the left-over exhaust fumes in the air and the birds are chirping. Even the PEOPLE are chirpier, with random people yelling out 'Good Morning!' to us, startling the three of us. 'Who me?' 'You' 'No, you' 'It isNo, it's you' 'It's YOU, dumbass'. (Me: I think he meant all of us, shutupnowplease and just say Good Morning back)

I think I like morning walks better so, here's to many more morning walks (let's pray together for this, awrighty?) for us. It's addictive, really.

Love,
Marsha

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…

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 mean.....aawwwwww......how 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 …
