I have finally found a replacement for 'wak maimon' the lady with the fingers of steel. my bidan & favourite masseuse.
I like moving my body parts and sweating
But its been quite a while now, a rather long while.
Its unfortunate that wak mon has lost much of her hearing, turning communication into quite a problem. she's also not as active as she used to be and have been known to turn people away. maybe she's slowly winding down, maybe its time for her to stop. she is after all already into her 80s.
Which leaves me in a quandary. wak mon spoilt it for me by setting a certain standard.. a session with her would leave me a little bruised (she really has fingers of steel), a little battered (she doesnt hold back on the kneading & pummelling lol) but otherwise very rejuvenated.
How the hell was i going to find someone like her?
And cutting the story short, i did... and right behind my backyard no less hehehe.
At the place that we (me, the daughter, golfman) usually go for everything & anything to do with hair, theres also other services like facial, massage, sauna & spa related stuff. but i've never really paid much attention to any of it. not until recently that is.
I found out that the young masseuse came from a long lineage of masseuses/masseurs.. her mommy's a mak bidan and her daddy's a retired tukang urut. now that immediately caught my interest bcos it means that she's not just a young lady armed with modern techniques (which i care squat about). she also has know how thats been passed down thru the years. and that made me more than willing to give her a try lol.
So yesterday i treated myself to a 40 min sauna followed by 2 hour full body massage. and finished it off with a 2 hr treatment facial today.
Like i said, i've finally found myself a replacement ;D
