Update : Selangor Cyber Games 2017, League of Legends

I used to play Starcraft some 10-odd years ago and I kind of like LOL, League of Legends, because they're kinda similar in some ways. More technical but similar playing styles and they also have many more characters to take on, roles, powers and what-nots.

Instead of being limited to Protoss (my favorite - teehee), Zerg (ugly creatures, will never play them) and Terran (boring ostracized human soldiers), they have a lot of more options. I am jealous.


I mean, look at this.


I WOULD indulge in either games if I had the time to, actually, but the fact is that...I don't. And I don't think my laptop is capable of handling the game, anyway.

But my kids play LOL and I do get updates from them, from time to time, albeit I overhear them talking about it in the car (to each other, not with me) or playing it in their rooms so, I know a little about it, so, when I heard that the Selangor Cyber Games 2017 is going to be held at Paradigm Mall, a short distance from home, I had to pen it down for a trip there.

It's far more professional than one would have thought about game-playing, really. It's serious business considering the fact that the top teams are actually sponsored and paid to play the games in regional and International games. In...tri...guing....

If Instagraming, Youtubing and Tweeting can be a profession, I don't see why gaming can't. This could be the future, guys. =)

Imagine playing games for a living. That would be like a dream come true for all those kids with a computer and smartphone out there.

I mean, like, why not, right? What better way to promote computers, mouse, keyboards, headsets, laptops, internet service, monitors, etc, than to pay a bunch of people to play the games and promote the stuff?

Intriguing world we live in,

I'm old,

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…
