Kota Damansara, Sunway Damansara, Tropicana....they all used to be prime area where the condos and landed properties cost a bomb compared to places like Kajang....or Cheras. There you can get BIG homes for HALF THE PRICE. I used to be quite proud of the fact that I stay in a place where Vincent Tan has got a helipad in...just metres away from my home. But.... ....the growth of Kota Damansara and surrounding empty plots of land is like planting tau-geh (bean sprouts) these days. Instead of luxury cars on the streets, we see Mat Rempits everywhere. There are foreigners living amongst us, not all but some look like they're big enough to wrestle four or five of our normal Malaysian men to the ground in a heart beat. And because there are so many new 'luxury homes' being built around the area, it's no longer a luxury to live here. I have made it known publicly in the past that I hate, loathe, detest, motorbikes and now, every time I open my door....bbbreeennnnggg bbb bbbbrrrr bbbrreeeeennnnggg BBBBBBREEENNNGGGGG they go. At the traffic light, how many times I marginally miss hitting them because they think yellow means 'go faster'. When I moved here, it was jam because of the school nearby. Now it's jam because of everything. So! Thank goodness we're moving. Back to home. With back to home, I mean I am moving to a place I am very familiar with, somewhere I grew up in, went to school in, pak-tor (dating) in, fall off my bicycle in.... It's not near Vincent Tan's helipad but heck, I can live without the traffic jam from all sort of people living nearby and the blardie MAT REMPITS. I hope I don't come off sounding like a snob, no seriously, because you know why? Because I like my home to be peaceful and suitable for raising kids and is just....enjoyable, you know what I mean? I don't mind investing in a place that is medium priced but give me peace of mind and not so crowded like a packed LRT every hour of the day. So, within a couple of months, I will be bidding this place goodbye. It's my first home on my own, bear in mine and I kinda have a soft spot for it but....it's just not meant to be home anymore. Come to think of it, I really like my condo. It's small but it's easy to upkeep. It's not 'luxury' per se but it's very family-orientated (used to) and quiet. Now, all kinds of foreigns students are living here because of nearby KBU. Well, as much as I love my home now, nothing in life is permenant, right? The only certain thing in life is change...so change it will be.
I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun. I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose. This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-) For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, reme
