Update : Damn Bug

When you're a single mother with no support system, being sick sucks. It's a big deal because you're trudging along like a sick cow, everything's still got to work like a well-oiled machine while your head is somewhere between the A&E and La-La-Land.

I don't like to whine but considering the fact that this is my blog and all, shuff it.

But it seems that this darn bug is not going anywhere soon. Even with enough rest and pills to knock me out for days on end, the bug is still here and my head is still foggy. My neighbor walked past and cocked her eyebrows at me and simply said, 'Doctor?' She knows I will only see a Doctor when I feel like I am either gonna die or have no other alternative because she knows my usual solutions are as follows:-

I guess it's something even a good book and sleep is not going to solve. I think I gave my kids a hell of a time this morning and afternoon (with the haphazard planning and scattered ideas). Poor kids! They sure took it from me like troopers. I'll make it up to them.

Looks like it is time to sidestep the all-natural method of curing this bug (don't even bother telling me all about your winning formula of essential oil mixture, etc. Not right now) and head over to the doc. I hate giving in to the doctor. =(

Seriously, where DID this is damn persistent flu come from? It hit me like WHAM-BAM-KABOOM-YOWZA out of nowhere, really.

Not in the mood for anything,
Not even Kdrama (you can tell its bad when cute guys don't interest me),
*slight smile*

p.s. Be back soon!

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…
