What's Important To You

Sometimes, it's easy to lose sight of what's truly important in our lives, especially in this day and age of social media. 

All you need to do is to log onto Facebook to feel like your life is crap 😂😂😂. In fact, you don't even have to go very far. Just step outside of your house, look at the posh cars sitting in your neighbors' homes and you're ready to beat yourself up over the head. 

I think that's the most futile exercise on the planet. Everyone's got their own wars to go through and as long as we continue to compare our lives to that of others, we're not going to be right here to celebrate whatever wins we have! . 

I spent a large part of my life yearning for what others have and what they think of me. Spending time appreciating my own little wins is so much more important than ever.

A simple thing like being alive should not lose its meaning. I guess perspective about life, what our daily struggles entail, what we can do for and to the world we live in, and the differences we can make, change the way you think. I've come a long way since I've started blogging and becoming a WAHM. My life has changed and if I told you I was the same naive 20-something party girl that I was, I've got a problem.

Shit happens, but you learn to scrape yourself off the floor and get on with it and move forward. Life is different for everyone so, if your life is so much more amazing, I am happy for you.

Every single morning I wake up is a win for me.

We're going to watch Mission Impossible: Fallout tonight! WIN.

Superb Saturday ahead!

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…
