Just One of ‘Em Guys

Have you ever been tempted to take a second look at a girl if she was surrounded by a group of guys? Do you look her up and down to see why she was so popular among the lads instead of the ladies? Do you mentally size her up to see what ‘extras’ she has to make her such a bloke-magnet?

Some girls just get along better with the guys…most of the time, it’s just the plain ole’ one-of-the-guys situation whereby the guys don’t even consider her a female at all. For some reason, maybe it’s the mental wave length or interest, I tend to click better with guys. Talking about sales, promotions, the latest fashion accessories, makeup brand or shortest skirt in the world just don’t kick it with me! I have no idea why.

Even today, the people I mingle around with or is close with are mostly guys. We have more things to talk about – like one of my friends say, “Maybe it’s because you like to talk cock and not bitch around, that’s why” and then another said, “Maybe you are supposed to be born a guy but someone up there made a mistake”. Oh shoot, if that’s the case.

Anyway, when a girl is surrounded by a bunch of guys, it’s not always because the girl is popular or the guys are all vying for her. Sometimes it’s just because she prefers to mingle with the men…innocently and platonically. It happens, guys! Although I have to admit that the plan went awry a few times but it happens. During school days, I had a bunch of girlfriends I hung around with, the four of us and we fought all the time. We fought about who’s whose best-bestfriend, whose house we’re having a party in, we also fought about who’s grades were better and also fought over the same geeky guy! Trust me, when you see the picture of the guy we were fighting over, you’d keel over with laughter! SERIOUSLY. He had glasses the size of a big Mexican hat, a belly that speaks of good food at home and such good grades that he was categorized as ‘untouchable because he’s a nerd’. But we fought over him simply because I thought he was kind of adorable. I tend to like geeky guys or quiet guys quite a fair bit, I have to admit. The loud ones just turn me off or turn into good friends, instead.

But with my guy friends, it’s a lot different. In fact, in college, I discovered that I liked hanging out with gays too although they talk about fashion and clothing and stuff but they don’t sock me when I tell them, “Oh, sod off, you sissified moron! Shut up already. I don’t wanna know about the sale, ok? So, who was dumped last week?” And somehow, they are such gossip-magnets! Tee hee hee….

I told you I was a bit of a tomboy. In fact, I find power rangers a whole lot cooler than Barbie if you ask me. But if Barbie came up with a sexy proposition for me, I’d shove her down the drainpipe. There’s no question about my sexual orientation (oh ddduuuuhhhhh!!!) but is it wrong for a girl to prefer hanging out with guys than girls?

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
