Thinking Of Going HK

I've mentioned before how if given a chance to work and live in HK, I won't. It's not that I have anything against Hongkies, I just prefer the space that I have here in Malaysia, the land, the air, the more courteous people (most of them, anyway), the better food (I'm biased but Hongkies visit Penang and they fall in love), and generally speaking, the lifestyle.

We may get frustrated with the more languid way of doing things here (the unker char kuey teow is slower than the people in HK) and HK people are FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRR more efficient. But you know, I don't want to live a pressured life like that.

But I love their efficiency. You order wan tan mee and two minutes later, it's there! Like WALAUUUU!!

So, it's kinda funny that I am thinking of going to HK again...for some reason. Like my sub-conscious mind is telling me to go there and have some HK-style fun.

Hhhmm....don't know. Do I really want to be pressured into walking at the speed of an LRT train in Malaysia? Seriously, they walk sooo fast! Maybe I just want to see the speed of life there to appreciate the slower pace here. Maybe I just wanna be taken out of the conundrum of life and be put in a situation whereby I can see things....just watch things and not doing anything in particular.

Hell, isn't that what everyone needs every once in a while? :-)

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!
