Prompt: Lost With Two Items and Birthday Update

Today's writing prompt: I am lost in the woods and I only have 2 items with me. 

Yup, that was the prompt. Just that. Why am I am doing this?! #lol 

Well, if I was lost in the woods, which I won't be because I wouldn't go near the woods alone unless someone throws me in there against my will which is, by the way, a crime 😁, and I have only two items with me, it would be:

  • A knife
  • A lighter
With a knife, I can cut down anything I find in the woods. It's a big-gish knife, alright? πŸ˜“πŸ˜‰πŸ˜And I believe that I can eat grass if I have to. Won't be the best meal on earth but one's got to do what one's got to do to stay alive.

As for the lighter, I can survive the dead of the night and I don't like the dark. So, I think it's the best way to survive. I don't know if a knife and lighter can get me water but if I can find my way around with a fire, I might find a source for water. 

Man, this writing prompt thing is hard, isn't it? 

Hang on....scratch all of that. I would be lost in the woods with 2 items and the items are:
  1. An air-conditioned/heated luxury camping car stocked sky high with food and drinks
  2. Navigator
There you go. Perfect. Hahaha....

Anyway, April 1st in this family is always a big thing because it's my sons' (both) and mother's birthdays and we celebrated it the best way we can. A meal with the fam, cake, a small gathering with the young ones clamoring all over my sister's house, couches, stairs and anything else climbable, and then a huge arse buffet with the boys. 

And I bought them a violin, by the way. Because they've asked for a violin before because they thought it was an intriguing instrument. Being the skeptic that I am, I waited it out. 

As with anything else that comes out of their mouths, it might be a passing fascination that would be over before I can say "Yeah right". But they continued to like the instrument without bugging me about buying it, thinking that I wouldn't even if they asked for it. 

Well, as it turns out, they both still liked the violin and VIOLA, we have two violinist wannabes in the house now. 

I just hope the neighbors can't figure out which house all that scratchy noise pollution is coming from. πŸ˜±πŸ˜…πŸ˜ŽπŸ’­

Otherwise, it's adieus from me. Happy TGIF, peeps!!!


BONUS: These were the babies I raised. Now they're 21 and 19. Don't even start with me with the "How time flies" thing, OK? #LOL #puh-leez

Space Sweepers (Netflix): Movie Review (2021)

Space Sweeper the Korean Sci-Fi Blockbuster hits Netflix 2021 Image Source: KoreaTimes Let me come clean. The first thing I thought when I saw Song Joong Ki leading the lineup for this movie was ' Is this OK?'  ' Hhhmmm.....what about, you know...his personal life', and as a fan of his previous personal work, I had the same doubt I had when he was casted in 'Descendants of the Sun'.  Sorry, Joong Ki. πŸ˜³ But the concept of a sci-fi movie in the Korean film platter was enticing. The trailer didn't look half bad either. When it comes to space movies, Hollywood has always been the Big Guy. We expect Hollywood to deliver the big guns and explosions while Kdrama land is all mush, love, arm grabs, ice-cold kiss scenes, love triangles, and of late, time traveling.  So, sci-fi? Interesting. Honestly, I went in with an empty mind which is not necessarily an open one. Ditched the reviews, writeups, Youtube reactions and everything else and hit the 'watch' butto

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 crim

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, reme
