Young Living Road2Success Taiwan Challenge

Alhamdulillah, we are among the selected members to win a spot in Young Living Road2Success Challenge, of which, we got a paid trip to Taiwan from 2-5 Nov 2017.

On 2nd Nov, as early as 430am, we were already at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport as our flight was scheduled at 7am. We reached Taipei around 1pm and were straight brought to a Halal Thai Restaurant. The food was just great. Sedap sangat.. Tatau lah sebab lapar ke apa. Hehek 



Next, we were brought to Young Living Taiwan Office. And we got to buy Hong Kuai Essential Oils here (superb to keep not just the special needs grounded, dengan mak-mak skali boleh pakai to keep ourselves grounded dan tidaklah menaga semenjang!). 



After that, we checked in at Grand Hyatt Taipei. Best eh? Dapat duduk at 5 stars hotel. Ingatkan dh tak kerja, takde mana lah chance nk stay free lagi. Tp Alhamdulillah rezeki ada je lagi..


Malamnya, dinner at Fullon Hotel and we were brought to Shinling, one of Taiwan’s famous night market. Kat Taiwan ni memang terkenal dengan night market. Tapi kat sini, so-so aje. Petaling Street kita lagi best. Hehehe.


The next morning, kami di bawa ke Young Living Taiwan sekali lagi for its first anniversary event. 



Belum habis event, by 3pm macam tu, kami submit order then ramai2 semua keluar pergi jalan-jalan. First sekali, menapak ke Taipei 101. Dekat aje dengan Convention Centre, where the event was held. 


View daripada tingkat 89 dan 91 bangunan Taipei 101. Dia lebih kurang Menara KL lah, ada observatory deck. Nak naik tu kena bayar around RM85 per pax. Turun from Observatory, terus pekena MangoChaCha. Okay sedap. Orang yang tak berapa suka manis cam akak ni pun bleh makan beria dik oiii. 





Daripada situ, kami naik MRT ke Ximending Shopping District. Okay kat sini memang best sket. Kedai memang banyaklah. H&M, Puma, Nike, Adidas etc. Harga deme lagi murah drpd kat KL, sbb barang kan banyak “made from Taiwan”. Sempatlah borong t-shirt yg jatuh around RM16 per piece untuk anak dara kami.



Orang tu beli kasut Puma kat KLCC RM349.90. Sampai sini kasut Puma yg sama sebijik sejibun adalah RM265. Hehek. Tu selipar dia beli tu RM65. Beli kasut pastu sakit kaki, sudahnya beli selipar jugak.

Balik terus tidur kepenatan.

Esoknya, kami dibawa ke perkampungan lama di utara Taipei, Jiufen. Juifen pada mulanya hanya didiami oleh 9 keluarga. Dan bekas kawasan perlombongan emas. Tarikan utamanya adalah pemandangan cantik menghadap lautan pasifik dan juga kedai-kedai yang menjual makanan, teh dan pelbagai cenderamata. 

Setibanya kami di sana, sejuk bercampur angin kuat. Patutlah semalam travel agent pesan, bawak payung, pakai jacket. Pergi Utah pun tak pakai glove, tapi kat sini kalah teruk. Lol.











Daripada Jiufen, kami dibawa makan tengahari di Yunus Halal Restaurant di Taipei. Sesudahnya, berhenti sekejap di National Dr Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall untuk group photo.




Seterusnya kami ke Vigor Kobo Pineapple Tart Factory. Kat sini merasalah buat tart nenas versi Taiwan. Sedaplah jugak. Yang penting, deme ada sijil Halal.



Habis sesi kat Vigor Kobo, balik ke hotel. Sesi free and easy sementara nak balik esoknya. Akak terus mengemas bila dh smpi hotel, while husband ada kat Young Living Taiwan collect order yang dropped semalam. 


Then malamnya, ke Tajin Moroccan Cuisine, one of our team member belanja her leaders makan-makan. Terima kasih Kak Yong. Dah tu balik ke bilik, tido. Teammates yang lain berkumpul dekat bilik out Crown Diamond leader for a class. Tak terdaya akak nak pergi, ditambah mengurut suami yang kaki cramp sebab banyak jalan, pakai Young Living Ortho Sport Massage Oils. Pergh sedap berasap!

Bergambar sekitar hotel. 

Esoknya, jom pulang ke pangkal jalan. Eh ke pangkuan keluarga. Anak-anak pun dah merindu especially si abang tu. The first 2 nights, nangis dia.. Kesian anak mama. Trip hectic gini, not suitable for you lah anak. Takut kamu tak tahan, dengan cuaca sejuknya.

Sempat berkelah di airport – Sambal ikan bilis garing,rendang daging, ayam goreng kunyit, nasi impit. Malatop!

All in all, it was indeed a fun trip!

Thank you Young Living Malaysia.

Young Living Essential Oils for the whole family!

Looking for something natural for your house and been hearing about Essential Oils?

Essential Oils were very alien to us when we first heard about it more than 3 years ago. Little that we know, they have been around for thousands of years!

We began our journey with Young Living Essential Oils in May 2014 and just couldn’t live without it ever since. When we first started, we were as much sceptical as any other person could be. How can something so tiny be so expensive and people are actually buying it and getting themselves addicted to it? To kill our curiosity, we did what others also do, turned to Google for information. It was mind blowing to note that back in thousands of years ago, people actually use it in spiritual and physical healings. How cool is that?

Soon after, we started using the oils on our kids, one of them having special needs that is, cerebral palsy. The kiasu mommy mode: always tried something good and expensive onto their children. Lol. Fast forward to 3 years later, we are super happy that we actually got ourselves into this oily journey. Now, the whole family are just addicted to it. We are essential oils addicts!

Essential oils work superb with our bodies, offering a variety of benefits from cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use. Extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they come.

You can buy Essential Oils at many places, but Young Living is the World Leader in Essential Oils. Young Living offers therapeutic-grade oils for your natural lifestyle. Once you hold a bottle of Young Living’s powerful essential oils, you hold nature's pure essence.

And when we first started, we had a great support (still getting it) from our oily community/oily group. In the group, everyone is just so passionate to share each other’s knowledge about Essential Oils on the best way to use it, where to use it, when to use it and so on so forth (YOU CAN BE PART OF THE GROUP TOO!). Oh we have classes too, be it online and also hands on.

We use the Essential Oils daily in so many ways:-
-       *Lavender is so versatile that we use it in our skin care products up to our relaxing routines. Try diffuse it by your bed at night before you go to sleep, you will be surprised to note how relaxing the aroma can be!
-       *Peppermint, oohh the strong refreshing minty aroma invigorates mind and senses! Apply it on your skin, it creates a cool tingling sensation making it just great for sport massage! Mommies, just imagine the sensation that you can get after that long tiring day from Peppermint EO!
-       *Frankincense, we use on our kids, on our skin and just everywhere. This ancient oil can help to elevate spiritual experiences and can also maintain radiant skin.
-       *Panaway, the cooling sensation upon topical application of it on tired muscles, can really sooth you up!
-      Brain Power, we use it on our kids before they go to school and on ourselves too, to promote a sense of clarity and increase focus.

Essential oils are more than nice scents, these powerful plant extracts have been our path to the lifelong wellness and it can be yours too.

Not just from a user aspect, from the business opportunity aspect that Young Living offers too. We are thankful that ever since we started building up our oily business, we are now able to work from home, be near with our kids throughout the day and bid farewell to the madness of morning traffics to work as well. Thank God for that.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

Since March 2017, saya adalah student kursus Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, drpd Body Intelligence Training

Apa itu BCST? Ni saya explain dalam bahasa paling mudah, bahasa pasar. Cranio ni dia promote self healing. Cranio percaya yg badan ada self healing ability, macam luka kena pisau ke, dia boleh sembuh sendiri. Tapi kadang-kadang, trauma/kecederaan tu terlampau hebat dan tak dapat badan nak heal sendiri. Therapist pulak act as "listener", untuk dengar/rasa keperluan badan melalui SENTUHAN LEMBUT atau pun light touch, dan encourage healing untuk berlaku. Susah ke belajar Cranio? Susah jugak pada saya. Kerja sekolah pun banyak. Perlu badan untuk practice lagi for students like me. Kenapa capital letters sentuhan lembut tu? Hahaha jenuh nak explain yang saya tak mengurut. 

And BCST ni takde kena mengena dengan essential oils. It is a modality on its own. 

When I did BSCT on my practice clients, of course la ada yang tak rasa, ada yg rasa. Student kan, belum lah level therapist. But Alhamdulillah, about 70% bagi good feedbacks.

Those early days, most of my practice clients ended up terlena siap pakej berdengkur. Most of them. So I went back to my tutor, asking whether I did something that is influencing their system tu yang ramai ended up package snoring and better sleep quality bagai.



The tutor replied that most of us are tired, stillness and state of balance awareness yang kita practice when we were doing on our clients can be pretty calming and invite resting to take place. So memang okay aje org tertidur and berdengkur coz body can find healing through good rest.

Yang later punya practice sessions, most of my clients ended up with jerking movements. As much as I am aware that jerking can be equivalent to some adjustments n fixing are taking place, tapi pelik la jugak kenapa almost 70% of them yg macam tu. Again terfikir, as a practioner, did I do something yg influenced clients' system ke? Kalau satu takpe la, ni ramai. Dah tu, takkan semua org ada pretty similar issues. Pelik. Pelik.



Tanya lagi tutor, and she replied, bila jerking movements happened, the body is starting to release and finding reliefs. After the jerkings, later akan jadi more settle kan? Could also be that now your relational field is getting bigger and better, so you can initiate more relieving things to come in.

Okay this is exciting to hear. Even though before ni rasa at the verge of quitting sebab rasa susah nak proceed, now rasa semangat and tak sabar to explore more. Oh I'm just more in love with biodynamic craniosacral therapy. Try it if you havent peeps!

This sem, focus is on bone, esp pelvis. Altogether ada 10 Sem and I just finished Sem 4 semalam Really had fun and I do have firmer belief of BCST works as time goes by. At the beginning of hearing about the modality, I always thought that it is very much of a con job 😂😂Now I have very much respect towards the work. It's not an easy one, but it is definitely very beautiful!




So now, back to writings, lots and lots of readings, drawings and more practice sessions. We have to complete the homestudies in 1 and a half month (2 weeks before the next Sem starts). 


Kaku tangan nak siapkan lukisan ni wehhh.. 

Budak Finance belajar anatomy badan. Huhuhu.. Nak menitik ayaq mata. Tapi now dh pandai dah sket, tau la mana zygomatic, sphenoid, suture, coccyx, apa ke benda ntah lagi. Hahahah.. 

Us at the end of Sem 4. 

It's a 2 years program. Harap2 dapat la grad on time and becoming a certified Craniosacral Therapist in 2019. Rayyan benefited a lot from the therapy, so mak dia pergi la belajar. Next, macam nak jd certified Aromatherapist la pulakkk.. 

Doakan sisthur! Jenuh belajar ni, otak agak keras sket. Hehek.

Mari mengenal Lavender - Hasil melawat ladang Lavender YL di Provence, France

Kat bawah ni ada 3 jenis Lavender.


Lavender/true Lavender - Spike Lavender - Lavandin

Yang belah kiri tu Lavender atau pun boleh jugak kita sebut True Lavender. Ni Lavender yg Young Living produced Essential Oils tu, atau pun Lavandula Angustifolia. Lavender ni tumbuh pada higher altitude (lebih kurang 600-1400m dr paras laut). Bunga dia tak banyak mana, dalam 5-6 tingkat dekat hujung batang tu..

Yang tengah tu Spike Lavender atau pun Lavandula Latifolia. Tumbuh dekat lower altitude (lebih kurang sea level up to 800m). Senang je nak kenal, pokok dia bercabang tiga. Cabang yang tengah bunga dia sket aje.. Spike Lavender ni, constituent dia agak camphorous, sama macam Wintergreen.. So utk org yg epileptic, kena extra cautious kalau taknak totally avoid the oils.

In between 600-800m paras laut tu, bertemu la Spike Lavender dengan True Lavender tu. Di sini terhasillah Lavandin, spesis hybrid drpd 2 jenis bangsa Lavender tadi. Lavandin ni paling cantik sebab bunga dia banyak bertingkek-tingkek. Dalam gambar, yang belah kanan tu Lavandin. Rimbun n kaler pun pekat bukan main. Kat France ni banyak aje yg guna Lavandin utk hasilkan sabun la, syampu la n letak label as Lavender. Tak salah pun sbb still Lavender kan. Tapi takleh letak Lavandula Angustifolia, tu dah salah. Lavandin ni takleh reproduce sbb species hybrid ni got spread by pollen.

Utk Lavender EO by YL, kita pakai True Lavender yg belah kiri tu. True Lavender ni kita pecahkan pulak sbg Lavender n Wild Lavender. Species dia sama aje, cuma tempat pokok tu hidup aje berbeza. Lavender tu mmg ditanam di ladang whereas Wild Lavender tumbuh meliar dlm hutan. Bukan kebun YL lah kiranya. Org kampung bangun pukul 4am, pegi kutip.

Cara nk kutip Lavender ni, potong di bahagian batang dia. Bila steam distillation dilakukan, 20% EO kita dapat drpd batang dan 80% drpd bunga. Pada batang dia, ada bahagian warna coklat. Potong sblm warna coklat tu sbb kalau dh lepas, pokok tu dh takleh tumbuh lg n mati camtu aje la.

Beza paling nyata Wild Lavender n Lavender biasa? Wild Lavender kan tumbuh meliar, so daya melawan penyakit etc haruslah lebih kan. Nak survive in the wild kan kena strong.. Tu yg harga dia pn lebih mahal. Dah la nk tuai n produce nya bulan July aje.. Benda rare memang mahal. Hehek.

Catatan jam 3.30am

Tersedar dari tidur jam 120am. Betul-betul jet-lagged. Menyampah pun ada. Heheheh.. Sebab yang lepas-lepas travel ke US apa semua, elok aje baliknya intact. Takde pun nak ber jet-lagged bagai. Siap terus masuk kerja pun ha.. Saja nak menguji ni.. Hihihi..
.
Saya dan suami baru balik from Lavender harvest di Provence, France. Again, free trip from Young Living. Yang bestnya, saya dapat bawak 7 leaders di bawah saya sebab saya menang contest Race2Diamond, of which saya berjaya ranking up daripada Platinum (group sales USD100K per month) ke Diamond (group sales of USD250K per month) dalam masa 6 bulan. So saya bawak leaders saya yang sama2 dedicated menyumbang kepada kejayaan kami.. Ewah, skema ayat. Phuih la.. Hehek.
.
Banyak aktiviti yang kami buat sepanjang di Provence. Selain ke ladang Lavender dan ladang gandum Einkorn, kami juga dibawa ke Simiane Le Ratonde, sebuah istana lama yang mana di dalamnya  terdapat kedai Young Living dan menikmati pemandangan sekitar kampung di tempat yang sama.
.

MasyaAllah, super duper cantik..

Batalion saya.. Hehek. Orang-orang kuat group saya, Touch of Oils

Menuai Wild Lavender. Lavender liar yang tumbuh di lereng-lereng bukit..

Leaders di bawah rangkaian saya - Munirah (Diamond), Anne (Silver), Afzan (Platinum), Kak Jiey lah tu, Alyyani (Silver), Nurul Oily Jolly Dolly (Platinum) dan Watie OilyLicious (Diamond)

We have an Oil for that! - Kugiran baru terhangat di pasaran.

Ladang Einkorn. 

Dinner menghadap ladang lavender mini di hadapan hotel pada malam terakhir kami di Provence.

Di sana musim panas sekarang, jadi siangnya lebih panjang. Jam 8pm matahari masih kelihatan..


Habis sahaja aktiviti kami di Provence yang berlangsung selama 4 hari, kami dibawa bersiar-siar di sekitar bandar Marseille, France. Oh di sana sedang sales. Saya sendiri tak melepaskan peluang membeli sepasang kasut Adidas Superstar high cut dengan harga hanya RM200. Hehek, kalau di Adidas Wangsa Walk, harganya RM430. Separuh harga..

Di Marseille, France. Anginnya sangat kuat. Lebih 50km/j. Mahu berdiri tegak pun susah.. Bagai ditolak-tolak.

Crazy us at Monuments Aux Morts de I'Armee de'Orient et Des terres lontaines. Angin kuat terbang-terbang tudung. yang pakai skirt pendek memang nasib la..

Dari Marseille France, kami menyambung jelajah ke kota London. Gambar di hadapan Ritz Hotel yang tersohor.. 

Eye on London

Di atas London Bridge

Kata suami, tak London kalau tak bergambar di pondok telefon merah ni..

Sejenis gigih mencari jersey.

Balik dengan senyum.. 

Dua malam di London, kami meneruskan perjalanan ke destinasi seterusnya, Venice Italy. Sumpah, cantik gila.. Saya lebih gemarkan kota lama ini berbanding London yang hiruk pikuk dan sibuk. Bandar yang dibina di atas pulau kecil dan dikelilingi air, itulah indahnya Venice.

Tengok burung merpati pun rasa teruja.. heheheh.. Jinak kan..

Oh i'm just in love with the masks here.. Seperti ada jiwa, penuh kesenian. Nak beli takut, ambil gambar sebagai kenangan sahaja la..

Dah sampai Venice, ralat pula kalau tak naik gondola. Walau harganya mahal, pejamkan mata sahaja. Ntah bila lagi mahu kembali ke Venice. Selain gondola, boleh juga memilih water taxi atau water bus, tapi tak dapat la masuk ke celah2 bangunan seperti gondola..

Rialto Bridge di belakang kami. Di sini boleh dapat banyak fridge magnet yang murah2. Kurang drpd 1 Euro sebiji.

Rumah yang nampak balcony yang agak mewah 2 tingkat itu, adalah kediaman Marco Polo 800 tahun dahulu..

House of Opera

Piazza St Marco ataupun St Mark's Square. Sumpah binaannya cantik,, Ukirannya penuh kesenian.

Perhatikan ketelitian ukiran pada gereja lama ini.. Hebat sungguh seni orang-orang lama yang kononnya wujud sedari kurun ke 9 ini..

Dari Venice, kami ke destinasi terkahir kami di Paris, France. Oh saya masih sukakan Veinice berbanding Paris.

Menikmati matahari terbenam di kota Paris.

Acting silly di sekitar kota Paris. Hehehehe

Passage Du Havre, salah satu shopping mall di Paris. Walaupun summer siangnya panjang, kedainya tetaplah tutup jam 830pm. Work life balance untuk mereka mungkin.

Galeries Lafayette ataupun Pavillion lah kalau di KL. Hehek.

Kalau ditanya, tidak terlintas di minda saya untuk tiba ke destinasi-destinasi di atas. Kebiasaanya kami, hidup sederhana dan berlebih wang ringgit kepada perbelanjaan anak-anak terutamanya Rayyan Ariff yang bukan sedikit. Sebelum bersama Young Living, Bandung, Jakarta dan Bali adalah tempat paling jauh saya pernah menjejakkan kaki.  Bagaikan mimpi untuk saya sampai ke tahap ini..

Walau dasarnya saya bukanlah seorang yang suka berjalan, tapi apa salahnya kan kalau sudah ada peluangnya? Hehehe.. Alhamdulillah, rezeki Allah SWT yang dihantar melalui Rayyan Ariff. Alangkah indshnya kalau anak-anak ada bersama. InSyaAllah bila abang Rayyan lebih kuat untuk berjalan jauh. Suatu masa nanti.

Terima kasih Young Living.
Paling utama, Syukur Ya Allah.

I am a proud Young Living Diamond Leader!
