When Marsha is Pissed Off

This cannot be a good thing. I have one admission to make. I make a bad pisser-offer. You know how people explode all the time when something irks them – and they’re like firing off rounds after rounds without a care in the world? In the evening, when the sun has gone down and the owls starts hooting, they just lie down, read a book and then, go to sleep.

This is something I am can't do.

When I was younger, I used to be impulsive and also have a motormouth, talk non-stop, fire non-stop and if you pissed me off then, you’ll get an earful there and then.

Nowadays, nobody gets a piece of my mind anymore because I have learned, unwittingly, how to bottle things up. I keep telling myself, “It’s OK lah, never mind lah, don’t be so siu-hei lah, don’t be so sensitive about things lah” but the feeling doesn’t go away. Ends up…it gets bottled up inside, piling one on top of another.

So, on the outside, people say, “Marsha, you’re such a nice person you know. You’ve got no temper whatsoever wan?”. *rolling eyes*. This goes for getting emotional too – which means I don’t cry at all…unless I am watching a soppy movie or series lah or you're amputating my leg without Anaesthetic. Otherwise, nothing much can hurt me to a point that I start bawling. Even when a friend walks out on me or betray me, not a single tear will fall from these eyes. Others will say, “You’re so strong” but to me, I am stupid.

Come to think of it, I do this even when I was young. I can tolerate a lot of things and will let people walk all over me time and time again. But when they cross the line, I give no warning. Yes. I know it sounds absolutely scary but it’s true. I will just up and go. I will cut all ties, remove all emotional links and feelings attached to that event or person and go on with life as if nothing happened.

Last time break up with boyfriends also like that, hand in my resignation letter also like that, move to another house also like that, fight with my sister also like that….a friend of a friend of a friend pissed me off also like that.

When I reach that stage, there’s no turning back unless the other person turn around first. Yes, I am stubborn that way – you can say ‘sei oi meen’ (a little bit lah, I admit) but it’s more like an emotional protection against further harm. It's like I don't want to be hurt anymore, here's the barrier. You stay over there and hurt someone else, please. Since they’ve harmed me or hurt me before, if I turn around again, then I would be the SH who opened myself up for pain again. If they turn around first (most probably I will say OK, let's give it another shot) and they hurt me again, they initiated it, not me. And I walk away again.

Sometimes I consider myself blur and naïve but never in my life would I consider myself stupid.

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
