Update: April 1st Birthday 2018

Like every year, April 1st is a special day for this family: Both my kids share the same birthday with my mom - 3 April Fools. LOL

It was fruitfully spent together and that's the most important thing. We got what we wanted (it took about 2 days, but well worth the endless waiting and checking), ate at our favorite restaurant (it was a buffet and the kiddos definitely ate as much as they can!), and just chilled out.

Like my son said, 'It's a very fruitful, happy birthday'. I agree. =)


My request for a #birthday #selfie #wefie with the boys were met! It took only 12 takes. Lol! The boys turning 18 and 16 this year and I sometimes wonder how, when, and what. It's not always an easy journey but we made it this far and we only have to concentrate on doing our best. That's all that is required. To fall, get up, cuddle, say you're sorry and repeat. I am forever blessed to be so loved. Happy birthday to the 2 wonderful men in my life ❤️❤️❤️♥️♥️♥️

We would normally have a simple dinner with my side of the family too to commemorate the birthdays together with my mom but my nephew is down and out with HFM disease so, he had to be kept away from the other little ones in the family. Hence, we decided to postpone the birthday dinner to next weekend when the babies and toddlers in the family are all in the clear. 

Sometimes, things are best kept simple and to-the-point, without the fanfare and drama. Hope everyone had a blessed Easter weekend!


XOXO,
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…

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…
