ALL the feedback garnered were POSITIVE.
I've tried and truly, it was SHIOOOkkadUUSSZzzzz!
And they say, ear candling is an excellent way to maintain hygiene of ears.
Therapist Iza is a meticulous person, making sure I am as togel as possible, battling patiently with my stubborn ingrown hair.
Harnie then noticed that I looked tired and asked if I wanted to try their promotion- Ginger Healing massage.
Of course my answer was YES!
So to summarise,

What's in da bag, I hear you kepochis ask?
Specifically Martha Tilaar's Dewi Sri Spa range with rice extract and essential oils in body care products.
If you must know, the secret behind the Dewi Sri Spa collection is rice.
Rice (Oryza Sative), which is known as a "source of beauty” in Indonesia, contains Vitamin E Tocotrienols with antioxidant effects of 40-60 times, Vitamin B Complex, Gamma Oryzanol, Phytosterol, CoQ10 and Ceramide. Ceramide, among others, moisturizes and increases the skin collagen production, improves skin elasticity, maintains the function of protection and homeostasis of skin in order to brighten clear skin and also prevents premature aging of skin as well as helps the regeneration and development of new cells.
well as the goddess of fertility and prosperity, has an unmatched beauty and the Dewi Sri Spa has been specifically designed to match that beauty to create a hopeful beauty:

It has been an enjoyable experience for Nyla and I'm sure your kids will love it too.
Sharing is caring so here goes!
Items you need:
your child (COMPULSORY!)
an exercise book
computer with internet access
and you're good to go with 5 simple steps!
Child will write her/his entry on his/her journal. Do not assist him/her with spelling. Just let your child embark on a free writing spree. Heeee!

Enough of Tanjung Pinang stuff.
Nyla is in charge of Togas R Us.

The only way to be safe in today's rapidly changing environment is to have the knowledge and skills to continually create opportunities of your own.
I am also not that sort of parent who sends her child for as many enrichment lessons as possible.
illustrator in the upcoming stories she intends to write.
Everytime I am done with tuition, she'll grab the whiteboard marker and Mr E and I (and her soft toys) become her tutees.
When I set up the toga tailoring business last July with my mom, she too wanted to be involved by naming the toga pieces. Toothless Black...Cool Mentos Blue..
I think the time has come for Mr E and I to teach Nyla E.E (Entrepreneurial Education) because we firmly believe that every child has the tools to be a successful entrepreneur.
Mr E and I did touch on this topic at the the marriage symposium 2 weeks ago.
On 20 October 2010, I have already loudhailed about the existence of "Togas R Us".
we have appointed Nyla as the Director of The Excluzif Togas- Togas R Us
Having contributed as speakers for the topic on "Using New Infocomm Tools to interact with your children" previously, Mr E and I have signed up an email account for Nyla as well as a blog since she loves writing stories.
I'd rather she blog than become a couch potato and watch television.
PS: Mommies, when emailing Nyla to place your orders for your girls' togas, I advise you to sit down with your girl(s) and let your babe do the typing.
Structure of an email.
Language (at the same time, you correct their grammar, spelling and punctuation)
Now, as much as I condone kids to be tech savvy in this new digital age, parents MUST supervise ya.
Likewise, when Nyla processes the orders, Ill be sitting beside her guiding her. ;)
Meanwhile I kapoh one picture from her blog la ah. Too cute. Tooooo irresistable.
Togas R Us models!
Nyla And her BFF/classmate Trisha Nurdjaja.

Finally, the babe is asleep after our usual bedtime conversation. (recorded above!)
She was especially excited just now because we will be going for a short getaway soon.
Yeah, our end of year yearly trip with Mr E's family.
This time round, nearly 40 of his relatives (including us) will be going. Best abisssss!
*Syamirul, Shirah and Kak Ana. we will miss you. :( Get well soon!*
We just only told Nyla the good news because Mr E and I weren't sure if we will be able to go in the first place, with Mr E being very busy in school and me, with tuition.
My Primary 6 Bottoms Uppers have already started tuition 2 weeks ago.
So yes, Nyla! Daddy and Mommy will take leave and to Tanjung Pinang, we'll go babe!
Kids are real easy to please huh.
Upon finding out that she will be going to Tanjung Pinang, she called my parents to tell them not to miss her and all. Ya eleh! Baru 3 hari seh...
Seriously, her reaction was as if we told her we will be bringing her to Disneyland lor!
She has already packed her bag. (As usual, I need to unpack and repack when she is not looking.)
Let's do our hair and nails together-gether, my mini BFF and look pretty for Uncle Irfan and Aunty Ray's wedding k when we come back.
Busy day ahead. Tuition in the morning. Toga errands during lunchtime followed by another round of playdate with Nyla's friends. Have signed up all 7 kids for a workshop at the library in the afternoon. They will be creating pop up cards. Fun stuff.
I love the month of December. So many fun activities for the kids and us mommies can relack jack.

Ryan and Miqa!
Seriously our Art teachers deserve to be shot la dey!
The tripletmom Yati's Jannah looking for inspiration (cari ilham) on how to decorate her Christmas tree.
Another thing I love about WowART is that it's classes are kept small to ensure that every child gets the most out of his learning experience.
Mother of 4 Yati shared with me her famous prawn Aglio Olio recipe and man, it should seriously be renamed as Aglio Air Liur! I whipped up this spaghetti dish for lunch....SUCCESS.
This month, WowART Learning Studio will be conducting a series of workshops for kids, introducing them to the exciting world of art works such as clay handling, glass painting and many many more!
