People Change

Some people really can change....you know, there's this Chinese saying that goes something like this, "Once a thief, always a thief". But you know what, the people who came up with this saying knows jack shit about life and people. I've grown so much and suffered (learned) so much throughout my thirty-odd years of life that I can't believe I am still learning. There's still MORE to learn? Fook. When is it gonna end? Today, I learn another lesson. Your family and relatives, some of them, can be harsher on you and will take advantage of you more than others. I will no longer work for my family members, let this be known. Close family members or not, I have to set the boundaries liao. Cannot tahan like that coz most of the time, I'm making a loss when I work for them. Anyway, some people have changed...from the time that I've known them to now. There's this one person that I would like to mention first. At first, she damn kow nice to me and all that. After that, she fat-tatt (made it big) and then become very snobbish liao. Everything also must follow her rules. Everything also SHE KNOWS BEST! tiu hoi tit (fook off far-far) lah, kanasai (erm.....your shit?)!!!!! Last time not like that, now got money, [ukimak (blooming idiot) act like fooking datin (a title) or something. Even some Datins don't act like that, right or not? CB face.... And then there's this other person who is always very angry at everything wan. Then now, she is a much calmer person and more reasonable too. We never argue much but there was one time, we super-kow-kow (extensively) explode. But then that was the end of it. After that, I can see her side of the story and she probably can see mine. The above, I apply to a man I know. Also....change so much that I can hardly recognize liao. Then there's this friend of mine who has always been very a very good friend to me and we had a big tiff some donkey years back and now, we've connected again and I really appreciate her for being there for me lor. You see, to me, life is all about hurting and living, laughing and enjoying and yet, through all of that, we're human beings and we're put here on earth to learn. Those who don't learn, end up like my friend....throw himself off a building and die. Those who learn, survive because we pick ourselves up and decide to change. That's why now I look back, suddenly I see that a lot of people have changed. They're no longer the same people I used to know back then lor. Except for my father. Still the same. Sigh....but then again, this is a father-daughter story that I am not willing to write about. If you're my friend, I would like to make a proclamation right now...I LOVE YOU. (Jerry McGuire tagline coming). Shut up. Just...shut up. You had me at 'hello'. You complete me.

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!
