About Marsha

2017/2018 Update:
If you're trying to get in touch with me, email me at marshamaung at gmail.

At this point, none of my posts are sponsored and they're also not biased in any way at all. The spirit of blogging, back when it all started, was an online journal where people pour their hearts online (it was soooooo pure and harmless back then!) and share their life experiences and discoveries with each other.

Now, it's just Facebook.

Social Media remains to be part of my bread and butter (or rice and soup - Asian, you know 😂), I don't do a whole lot of it personally except for Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin, my Facebook page, and YouTube.

Dayum. That sounds like a lot already! I have many others, of course, which I sometimes tinker around with but you'll find nuggets of my life sprinkled across this little corner of the Internet.

For work-related stuff, you'll get them at, AND I publish regularly on Medium, so, there's that.

2013 update:

I am updating my About page in 2013 because...things have changed, huh? Life is like that. I am still a believer of being plain and love, peace, calm and harmony. I still think that I am moving in the right direction in small baby steps, albeit sometimes sideways and sometimes in a blur. I am STILL a writer who puts my clients' interest ahead of mine for the 15th year (and still counting). I still believe in yoga and karma. And I still believe that I am average person who deserves the right to bitch when I want to...since this is my blog and all. XD

The work that I do includes writing, blogging, search engine optimization, internet market, online social networking and marketing, content strategy, production, management and dissemination. All of that's not changed.

What has changed is that I realize that I am loved and treasured. Before this, when life was throwing me curve balls, I thought people will never be there for me. Thank goodness, things have changed. And that's changed my perspective and hence, the way I blog.

The end, terima kasih. If you are reader and have a Twitter account, look me up here and mention me and I will follow back. Otherwise, I won't be bothered. I have a Facebook but I don't do the whole Facebook skit thing except for occasional picture postings and double plug from Twitter. I don't usually add friends on Facebook either unless you get in touch with me via DM.

Have a pleasant day ahead, people!

My Past
I used to perform professionally. In school and college, I performed more than I studied. A-heh...sue me. Yes, I studied law so that has GOT to be my fave phrase.

Then in a rock band and show band. Here are some pics.

(pretending to play keyboard - pianist is busy for another show - teehee)

But at the end of the day, I am just a person who happens to be a mother and a child at the same time. Mother to two beautiful, loving (God, they love me to death and I KNOW that), amazing kids and a child within and without. I prefer being a child, actually. But don't tell my kids that. =)

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!
