Telling It Like It Shits

Currently writing a book (for someone else) that involves a lot of predicting. I can't say much because I am not supposed to. But this book tells you things about yourself, your personality, your life and tells you what's going to happen in the future and what you should do. If you're thinking 'feng shui', you're only 30% correct but on the right path. Anyway, as I am writing, I am finding it a little bit difficult to erm...like, tell the people the bad news. For example, if a person's got this type of 'life', then it means 'buried on the road'. I am like ACK! How am I supposed to write this nicely without scaring the reader to bits?? I mean...is there another easy way to say this? How about there will be minor mishaps but it's not minor. Or maybe don't drive fast but it could happen even if the person drives slow, right? Or maybe....maybe something like.....erm.... I dunno. You tell me!

just write like your post title....telling it like it shits..no two ways about it cuz

BUT

off the path a bit 'ere ok? I am not one for "Books" on predictions and such...all pure bullshit to me..predictions are something like assumptions ( in a way )

I never assume, therefore I dun fucking believe in whatever anyone predicts...

Btw, ask the bugger who is so into predictions to go to this site and predict what will be next outcome:

I am posting as Blade in the 2nd site..

Let me know of his/her predictions cuz.

AND

I sorta like know you are not into this prediction thingy as well..therefore, it must be hard like hell to write about things that you do not fully believe...I believe the phrase " cari makan susah woooo" applies here right? hahahahahahaha.

Note: hope the person that you are writing for is not a reader of your blog...sorry in advance if they are...just my personal opinion only and not of Marsha's

jamie, that's the thing with writing, cuz, you can't just plonk it there like it is. People will spit into the book lah. Have to fluff it up a little one leh....so I a bit pening there. ????

The good stuff NO PROBLEM-O, the bad stuff....aisay, man.

I will try to ask the MASTER (as opposed to BUGGER :-)) to predict that. But I think he needs the date and time of birth for that kinda thing, so.... :-)

You know me well....being the skeptical shit that I am. But somehow, he's predicted many many FAR TOO MANY THINGS right about me liao. So, it's gone on to convince me a little about the theory as nonsensical as it is. So, I am like learning and writing at the same time...like, trying to debunk some of the truths, finding loopholes, and then trying to 'testdrive' with my Karen's, Damien's, Father, Mother, Husband, Maid...EVERYBODY lah punya birthdate.

Except for my kids. People say don't predict for young kids, it's not supposed to be that way wor. It drives the parents into paranoia if they know that their kids' got bad lives. so, not doing that.

but really lor, cuz. Cari makan these days REALLY susah lor....I have to agree with that lor. *big pout*

FYI cuz, a lot of people told me that it is not good to have predictions of ones future because it CHANGES as and when you know what it is...something like the spacetime continium in "Back To The Future"

I just listen to what they have to say loh....BUT I am still the skeptical shithead that I am...waaaahahahahahahahaha

jamie, getting predictions doesn't change a fate....er...according to whatever I am writing about lah. Because certain people got certain life chart. If they know what their life chart is like, they can do something to 'soften the blow' or erm....'prepare for it' but not avoid it.

therefore, they cannot change their fate.....

...er......from whatever I learnt.

but fook it all lah, rite? hee heee hee

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

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

The Short Hair Scandal

Except for a short period of my life where I donned long hair (which was mightily unkempt), I've mostly sported the short or bob hair cut. I just didn't have the time to deal with the straightening, curling, or whatever it is that women are required to do before they get out of the house to buy a bag of salt from the grocery store.  I've wanted to write something about how An San, a rising archer from South Korea,  got flack for sporting a short crop . Despite her performing with near stellar perfection.  How is having short hair a sign or declaration of anti-men?  Are men who wear their hair long anti-women, then? I don't even know where this is going because it doesn't even make sense. LOL. Short hair is simply easier to manage. The flip side is that if you have to attend a gala or a big event, short hair is even harder to style! PLUS, some women just look fantabulous with a short crop!
