Mother's Day Surprise................!

My son H and his sweetheart..Janet told me few days ago they are going to give me a surprise gift on Mother's Day......and son R who always let his little brother make all the decision when it comes to things like that.....

So happy mum thought son is going to cook up a storm or buying me flowers or gifts which he used to get me in the past...........but this is not what I expected........

I was suddenly told yesterday that they had made an appointment for me to go for a spa and massage. I was really very surprise and anxious at the same time for I have heard about it but I have never been to a spa before........my mind was going like this.....(oh...do not know what they are going to do with my body.....will I faint..? will they hurt my painful joints..?...will I have a heart attack...?) You must be thinking I must be out of my mind.....for having such pessimistic thoughts......but please don't blame me because many many years ago when I was quite sick with RA......I went for a traditional massage recommended by a friend......a Malay lady who was very popular for massaging people to good health.

What happen was when I was on the way back home after my massage session.....I had breathing difficulties and my heart felt like it does not beat anymore..straight home I lied down and felt like I'm going to pass on.....seeing that I did not black out nobody was anxious to sent me to hospital....so it drag til the next morning and a friend had to send me to a hospital an hour drive away lying down flat with the seat pull down...I was admitted and was hospitalise for 2 days...while my son R was taking his major exams (PMR) back home.....what a day I would not ever forget....and doctor advise me not to go for a massage again.

So what am I going to do....to go or not to go....for I have heard spas are so soothing and refreshing....I do not want to miss the opportunity....anyway life is in the hands of God.... and its free for me.......too.

So off I went to this place to experience and enjoy..............


I like a scaredy cat....ask the staff to choose for me something light so I would not pass out on the massage table....being very skeptical again. And this is what I got...a one hour 20 minutes bali boreh massage and body scrub...for RM 95....this is it how it goes.....( no pics allowed )
First,I was ask to strip and only have a disposable panty on.....wear a bathing robe and sit on a big chair like a queen.....in a very nice and soothing room with gentle lightings, soft and slow music on the air.....then I was served a small cup of warm ginger tea......

While sipping my warm ginger tea, I was given a footbath like this....

Footbath consists of soaking your feet in warm water scented with flowers and scrubbing and massaging it with aromatic oils and ginger scrubs......


After footbath is lying down on a flat bed to be massage all over the body with scented oil .........very soothing and heavenly....not what I imagine..


After massaging there is the body scrub....using herbal and aromatic oil mixture.........to be rub over the body to exfoliate all the dead skin and removing body toxins....so they say.........




Then a warm bath ended the wonderful pampering to my rejuvenated body......not wanting to leave the sanctuary.......and hoping for the next visit again.......mind and body refreshed for the next surprise.......thank you, Janet for a refreshing experience.....

Glad you didn't faint after this spa experience. My humans LOVES massage. In Bangkok, they would go almost every week (so cheap and good). Dad likes Thai massage but mum prefers oil.

You are blessed to have such great kids.
