What's Your Maid Eating?

in response to sunday times, 20/4/14, ms zuraidah ibrahim's article:

'you eat what we eat is always my family's first word with any new maid. of course for indonesian helper we don't expect them to eat pork, char siew pau or ba kwa. 

most of our maids put on weight after working with us. 1 maid her weight went from 60 to 65 kg after barely 3 months with us. from then on whenever we asked her have you eaten? her reply was sir, don't want eat, don't want fat! another one when her contract was near finished & soon to return to her homeland, looked worried & told us that she afraid her mum might not recognise her due to her increased size. we always heed indonesian maid's request for chilli padi. to maintain her slim figure, our x filipino helper ate little. another one not only shared our meal, she enjoyed our snacks, sweets & chocolates too. to her halal or not never mind. with the new & current myanmar maid, we cook more rice because she eats quite alot of rice on top of the myanmar dishes she cooks.

we encourage our maids to cook food of their nationalities. not necessary they cook chinese food. my family enjoys food of different culture. in fact maids benefit by learning how to cook chinsese food. it's surely an asset to them.'

Dream of Bruce Lee

Today is Qing Ming, All Souls' Day. What a day to dream of the legendary Bruce Lee! 

1+ am, in the dream: he trained hard to perfect every kick. in a movie planning, a white good guy, expert in kung fu, jumped from a very high building into the blue sea (Courage). in another scene, bruce & many good guys including myself, hid off from many bad guys, instead of confronting them (Act the Right Move & Not Blindly). my late granny of my mother's side helped bruce to perfect his kicks (Wing Chun). strange! she's a short lady who knew nothing of martial art. a kind hearted lady who almost reached 100 years old (Kindness). 

I always feel that Bruce Lee's ancestor tomb isn't kind to male especially elder male of the next few generations. For Bruce & Son passed away early out of unnatural cause! This's common for Bad Feng Shui Grave. Ancestor burial ground shapes the future generations. Now burial is limited. Perhaps one should consider Right Urn Space for the Best for all.

Happy Qing Ming
