Unwind at Chakras Aromatherapy Centre

About two weeks ago, I was at Jentayu Spa (Zen Soul Spa). And now to another known as Chakras. Easily dwarfed by the high-rise buildings in Jalan Gelenggang, Damansara Heights. But it stands tall in offering a welcoming respite for the weary body and soul. It is one of the houses that’s behind and adjacent Menara John Hancock. You can turn into Jalan Semantan (Menara John Hancock would then be on your left) and follow the road. Turn left at the junction and it is one of the houses on the right. Look for number 13. It is also on the same row as the Shell petrol station.

The centre is rather unassuming, as opposed to the “jungle”/nature-inspired setting that I had envisioned. In short, it wasn't bungalow-spacious. As with all other spa centres, it is best to call for an appointment beforehand.  It was going to be a scrub, wrap and massage for me. A total of 3.5 hours! Looking through their menu of services, it was down to Smoothing Marine Scrub (because sea-salt scrub can be slightly painful against the skin), Mineralising Dead Sea Mud Wrap (to detoxify and rejuvenate) and a Traditional Massage.

The scrub was pleasant and it didn't feel like anything grating into your skin. After a quick rinse, the wrap was next. It can be rather difficult to lie still and stew in the goodness the wrap has to offer. But do try to relax and let the detox/“sauna” begin. It proved to be a little too much for the restless soul in me and after 30 minutes, I bellowed a quick “Hello!” and the masseuse promptly came running in to unwrap me.
The Traditional Massage: there was no recollection of whether it was great because the masseuse’s constant burping (to the verge of sounding like vomiting) was extremely disconcerting. Every minute in the 1.5 hours of massage, she burped continuously. It is largely believed that that is how a masseuse extracts the “angin”/wind from the person he/she is massaging. For this health benefit, I endured the none-too-pleasant sounds.
The staffs are extremely amiable and my jovial masseuse (an Indonesian lady who has been in Malaysia since 1989) put in a decent effort. Be sure to call the centre to inquire about the latest promotions.

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
