All I want on Wednesday is…

Stressful. Every Wednesday is stressful. Here’s why 6.15am : Wake up, prepare breakfast 6.30am : Shower 6.45am : Wake kids up and get them to shower 7.25am : Leave house, fetch kids to school 8.00am : Reach Joshua’s school 8.15am : Hang around in BHP petrol station 8.45am : Fetch Jared to school 9.10am : Reach home, start work 10.30am : Prepare lunch 11.45am : Fetch Jared and his schoolmate back from school 12.15pm : Send schoolmate back home, reach home 12.30pm : Lunch 1.30pm : Clean up lunch stuff 2.00pm : Start work 2.45pm : Drop Jared off at piano class 3.00pm : Dash off to pick Joshua up from school 3.25pm : Got Joshua and send him to piano class next 3.45pm : Reach piano school 4.00pm : Joshua’s piano class 4.30pm : Joshua finish piano 4.45pm : Reach home, prepare dinner 5.45pm : Clean-up kitchen 6.30pm : Dinner 7.30pm : Clean-up dinner stuff 7.50pm : Finally get to sit down for a while OR work 8.15pm : Shower for the kids 8.45pm : Homework for the kids 9.30pm : Get kids ready for bed, story time 10.00pm : Kids asleep. ALONE AT LAST! And they say I have all the time in the world. Granted, not every day is like this because most days I have time to do my work but Wednesday is not my favorite day in the world. Sadly, this year, my birthday will fall on my least favorite day of the week, so, I will be clearing the piano classes and will be ta-powing for the day just to give myself a ‘birthday present’. I told the kids, this birthday, I don’t want ANY birthday present. All I want on my birthday is NO RUNNING AROUND, NO TRAFFIC JAM, NO CLEANING, NO COOKING, and some bloody well-deserved peace of mind. Sigh….

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. 😳 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
