This journey is incredibly humbling for me.

From being wounded and not knowing which way is up and wondering whether or not i could be ALIVE or not and at the same time, finding new MEANING in my new life in this FOREIGN place.....It's been an AMAZING journey

I am a daughter, sister, dog-owner and friend.

Currently, i am learning to train my mind and body. I want to hold my body, challenge my physical ability to a level i could never imagine.

I definitely have learn to stop letting these people who do so little for me in my life but control so much of my mind, feeling and emotions.

Learning to let them go from my life is definitely one of the best achievement i ever done to myself.

Goodbye my friends.... Hope when we meet again, we are once strangers again.

Ayurvedic oil and hot stone massage

My body is aching.  I suffered what my patients suffered too. Overused muscles especially my scapula region and lower back.

But I do need a good massage and stress reliever.

And I found  ayurverdic and hot stone massage.

I do not know anything about Ayurvedic medicine, but I heard a little bout it's benefits, when I see this package offered 2 hours massage for RM 68. Immediately I asked J whether we wanna go together or not.

So, we went. And the verdict is the masseuses are strong and good. And I love the hot stone massage. Particularly, when I personally requested her to put a little pressure on my fibrosis over my scapula. Immediately, I feel the release.

Of course before the massage, she put me in an 'igloo' that looks like this

This is an infrared treatment where I lied there for 20 minutes. Initially I did not feel anything inside but slowly I can feeling heat catching up, by ten minutes, I can feel my body is wet and hot. I cannot wait to get out from the 'igloo'. Once in awhile I brought two of my hands out, and voila!! The cold air felt so good.

Finally, my masseuse came in and inform me that the treatment is done. And informed me that my massage is 2 hours. She asked me whether I want hard or medium. Immediately I said hard.

I lied on my tummy, and this small framed Indonesian lady worked her magic hands on my calves. And is really hard. My gastrocnecmius felt so painful. immediately I requested for medium pressure.

She took her sweet time while I dozed off when she massage my back, and when she put the hot stone, I woke up immediately, I thought she overheated the stones, it felt so burning.... But after a while, the massage feels so soothing.... eventually, i dozed off....
