Nava's Zen. Holistic Wellness

Hi Darlings, I know. I've been missing in action in this space of mine. This space, obviously, for those of you who have following me faithfully for almost 10 years now, I'm sure you have already noticed? The rebranding, the refurnishing, the realignment, the remodification and whatever, whatever; for being known as Nava's ZenHolistic Wellness. Yippie-yeh! Finally, after all these years. The years to my life and at this age of mine, #myfiffysevenlife (57), I am heading towards a new direction. In fact, the direction is indeed crystal clear and I have already taken the steps. Henceforth, due to putting things together towards the direction, pretty much, why I have not pitched anything for almost 3 weeks or so. The busyness to setting up my business, #navaszen has put me like, on the roller blades, skating all directions. 

Needless to say, there are still things to do before my #holisticwellnenss is up and about, flying high up in the sky and if not all, somethings have been pending due to Covid lockdown. But now, considering that it’s much more relaxation in movements, businesses and humans, I need to work on all those pending things. First thing first, I would like to share with all you amazing darlings, right now about Nava’s Zen. Our zen profile, and of course, how can I not include, aha, "The Crazy Lover". The crazy lover, who? Me alright and the crazy lover is my pen-name or me the keyboard warrior, for my ever first ever book. Whilst you await my e-book patiently or impatiently, hopefully, keeping my fingers crossed, before the end of 2021, and for making the book’s presence known in the virtual world, here’s to our profile and of course, yours truly, Nava K, like I have already said earlier, must, must and must be included. Alright, sit back, stand up, or you can even roll on the floor, hit it hard, really hard, in full force, to #navaszen. 

Nava's Zen. Holistic Wellness 
Nava's Zen. It is, basically the BIRTH of the owner itself, Ms. Nava. Where she combines her creativity, innovation, and most importantly her deep-rooted LOVE for yoga and "delivering" it as Nava’s Zen in the business world. Fret not, in this birth story, no spermatozoa was needed. Only pure LOVE. 

Nava's Zen is a home-based "Holistic Wellness" Centre located in Ms. Nava's proud “Mother Earth & Father Earth” land, Kota Kemuning, Selangor, Malaysia. Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, amidst the quiet double-story neighbourhood. Providing you, rest assured- ample space to breathe. But earth given to all, natural fresh air and sunshine? Well, with Malaysia's weird weather, it really depends. If Malaysian rain lashes, FREE fresh air for all! However, as much as we want this for everyone, we might also warn you that's not always the case. Sometimes, there will be air pollution, noise pollution due to the unwarranted, can’t do anything much, vrooming and zooming of cars or sometimes the melody of barking dogs which unfortunately is beyond our control and earth’s control. Besides that, you'll find an abundance of “free and easy” roaming cats, which are not only skilful in climbing but also for being on top of their game in learning the skills of the reproductive system! Yup, you read that right!  All in all, for Ms. Nava, these are all part and parcel of life. Because for her, yoga has ignited high doses of tolerance, calmness, peace of mind and love for whatever is packaged as “Mother Earth & Father Earth” regardless of the events happening in her surroundings.  

Despite all that, Nava's Zen is a place of serenity, tranquility, and earth radiating wavelengths of energy at the façade where plants, vegetables, fruits, and edible flowers are grown. Apart from the nature-given oxygen, the scent of aromatherapy candles and essential oils lingering in the ambiance will deliver a burst of freshness that will surely transport your senses.

Nava K (Founder) 
Welcome! Meet the one and only Navaneetham Krishnan! One of a kind? Definitely. She inhales confidence, self-acceptance, and self-belief if you can't already tell. ;p. Instead of getting your tongue twisted by addressing her by the name given by her mummy dearest, you can call her Ms. Nava Krishnan, or even better, Ms. Nava. As for how she is known and respected by her students for almost 25 years in the education industry. She was not only a senior lecturer in Inti College, Subang but was also a lecturer and a tutor in the University of Wollongong, Perth (Degree Twinning Program), and Metropolitan College, in the Curtin University of Technology, Australia (Degree Twinning Program) as well).

Ms. Nava began her working life at a young age, 18 years old to be exact. Just after completing her SPM/senior high school, she started off as a Research Assistant, followed by being a Finance Secretary and Personal Assistant to General Manager, before stepping foot into the education industry. Along the way or even prior, she has obtained several qualifications. 2014 was the year she decided to take a break or what she thought a "permanent retirement". She stepped out from the working world, thinking that it will be her permanent retirement. Due to health reasons, particularly the return of her menopausal syndromes which she couldn’t handle, and also due to how corporate life sucked massively. Sorry, not sorry. Which then led to explosions of C5 or C6 bombs that shattered her inner self.  

Slowly and surely, she took the leap and managed her "menopause" with her newly appointed best friends- her traveling luggage and traveling shoes, gluing her heart back together- one country at a time. Whilst at it, she also took care of her mum who had fallen ill and she shed buckets and buckets of tears, when daddy dearest, left for heaven. Leaving a major hole in her heart. At that point in time, Ms. Nava thought the only way to escape from reality was by returning to work. Numerous job applications were sent but somehow, nada, zero said yes. To make things worse, during this time others things cropped up too. Things closest to her heart, private and confidential, which may have directly or indirectly contributed to her being shocked, knocked and rolled again. Causing health to take a toll. In and out of the medical centre wondering what the heck went wrong.

While she was on the verge of being diagnosed with depression, she discovered yoga, via-a-viz, yoga discovering her. They fell in love. Yoga and Ms. Nava. Yoga helped in building her life again and yoga loudly whispered to her that, not to leave him or her alone. To the ground floor, for the qualifications and certification for yoga, the rest is the sheer perseverance, determination, and willpower. Of course, no matter what, Ms. Nava must thank her palpitation, her hot flashes, her loved ones, her doctor who almost landed her in depression and friends who branded her as a confused housewife. Because at the end of it all, Ms. Nava conquered all of them well. Tadaa! Ms. Nava and the late booming of hers. Regardless, as her forever philosophy, it’s never too late for anything for the matter, she has tightly and firmly secured Nava’s Zen at 57. Her ripe, juicy and prime age. Feel comfortable. Drop a message at her intro. :)

Oh, oh, we must also mention that Ms. Nava is no con-artist or quack. She is qualified in whatever is offered in Nava's Zen. She is backed up and supported by her credentials and qualifications. There’re bundles of them, really and honestly, and if you want to check out each one and furthermore, please head to her LinkedIn profile - Ms. (Krishnan) Nava, otherwise, you can conveniently, slyly, sneakily or curiously head to her Facebook Personal Profile (Nava Krishnan)

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.
