T’was An Accident-Lah, Sir

I was on my way to a client’s office to collect a payment on a rainy evening when this happened. The roads were dark and where I was driving, there were potholes here and there…one too many on such a popular area, if you ask me. Maneuvering my way in the dark alleyways, the direction-blind me finally found the street that I am supposed to be on. Happy as a lark, I wheeled myself into the street and found a spot to park the car before giving my client a call. I sat there and dialed the number, it rang…no answer. Second try…no answer and then third try, he picked the phone up and told me that he would be on the way down to pass me my well-earned money. Pleased with myself, I ended the call and……’HOLY SHITE!’ I screeched when I saw a horrifyingly scary face stare at me with a frown. His furrowed brow was nothing compared to the ghostly eyes throwing daggers at me. Dare I wind down the window? No, man. Are you CRAZEEE??? Then slowly, the man, without taking his dagger-throwing eyes off of me, walked away. It was then that I noticed his back was all wet. I drove slowly up to him, roll down the window just a weeeeeeee bit and asked, “Sir, was there something you wanted to tell me?” Are you blind?” he asked. I blinked back my surprise and said, “Sorry? No, I most certainly am not blind, mister. What’s your problem?” I was starting to throw some daggers myself. In a flustered manner, he threw his arms all around him and then up and down without saying anything, eyes wide open and positively GLARED at me again. If he could turn me into a tadpole right there and then, I think he would have. His eyes was saying, you drove and splashed into a puddle and gave me an impromptu shower, you bitch! Oh. Sorry, but it is raining and there are so many puddles all around and it’s dark so….erm…yeah, I couldn’t have seen (I was also looking for a street and was bloody proud of myself for finding my way here ALL BY MYSELF) anyone. Sorry…”, I mustered but he was no longer listening to me. I continued to stare at his retreating back, uncertain if it’s really my fault, actually. Heylow, it was an accident lah, MF! You think I purposely drive into a puddle and wet you ah? KNN! Sorry lor….if you want to live the rest of your life cursing at me then be it. Have a happy life. Tiu.

KahKahKahKahKah!!!! LoL

i'm sorry Marsha, i totally agree with the poor fella. I would be shooting daggers too if someone drench me with a puddle of rainwater. I would not really think of what the other person's reasons was at that moment, i'd still be fuming.

but reading about this as a blog-bystander, it does sound funny.

*mind you, i've actually been splashed before and i cursed the mofo left, right and centre*

but still, LoL

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
