Health Is Wealth

For the past 2 days i've been laying in my bed due to a bad back. The doctor advised me to be bedridden and i'm not allowed to wear high heels, not to drive for at least 5 months and not to carry heavy things, not too stand too long or sit too long....

It happened the minute i got out of the car when i arrived at a friends's book launch. It was quite embarassing when i actually had to be held in the arms to walk and another friend had to carry my handbag and my high heels. So i left early and amazingly i could drive and it didnt hurt when i was sitting down.

My thoughts were running wild thinking of the pain and full of what if's. Then i realized i should controll all these negative thoughts and tried to recall the solutions when it happened to me before back in the 90's when i was flying with MAS- when it all started, I had a slipped disc.I found out that Pak Cik Ngah , the old ustaz a family friend from Kota Bharu have already passed away a few years ago. No physiotherapies or medicine in hospitals could help but what he did to me was a miracle. I remembered I flew to Kota Bharu on a wheel chair but came back 4 days after that walking nicely. Everyone suggested i go for the operation and some of my friends now who opted for the operation are now suffering from parralysis.

I heard of this special man who is also neurology specialist serving in a few hopspitals in K.L from a good friend who is a masseuse and I went to his clinic in Gombak 2 days ago with my husband.. That day i couldnt even walk or stand properly and the pain was exruciating. What he did was he fixed 'all the alignments in my whole body ' and it was quite painful. That night I could sleep and there was no more pain but i still couldnt stand properly. I felt like an old lady.

The next day I went for my second treatment and alhamdulillah today i'm able to stand up straight again but with very careful steps and care. Its amazing how he does it and i think this guy should be given so much credit for what he's doing .The hospitals are charging so much for all these physiotherapies techniques that only could relieve you temporarily but do not cure you!

So I'm still resting and taking the opportunity to catch up on my reading and surfing the net for some information and knowledge. The most important thing for me now is to get well and I cant wait to start work again. What's life without being able to do what you love doing and without being able to enjoy the moments of happiness with your loved ones. This experience taught me how important it is to take care of your health and there's nothing more important than having good health than so much wealth but not being able to enjoy life to the fullest.

Moral of the story is Health Is Wealth. With good health you can create wealth but with wealth not necessarily you can get your health back.

Take care!

Welcome to New Year 2010

The new 2010 curtain has been raised and we are supposed to welcome it by moving on to the next chapter in life with much renewed optimisms and super re-charged energy.

Analysts in America were heard saying that the economic crisis 'syndrome' is slowly fading out and on the other note this year of the Tiger, many Feng Shui masters are predicting that it will be a challenging year but we are encouraged to use our personal and individual talents that could land us a sudden luck and great opportunities. Well haven't we heard all these before...they do sound familiar right.

2009 has been good year for me as well as my career development is concerned.

I'm glad that our society now have started to realize the importance of having the right Image for their staff to represent their companies and organizations and therefor the requests for Image Workshops have increased tremendously.
My first book on Image Building titled 'Imej- Diri Anda Aset Anda' was launched successfully by ex Minister of Trade Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz who happens to be my Icon. An unforgettable moment ever.

Adamaya my company, from a HairSalon and an Image Consultancy firm , we have extended our wings to another diversification which is Product Manufacturing , Marketing and Trading services. Adamaya Marketing Sdn Bhd was created.

We have also secured some great projects for Adamaya Marketing and we believe that 2010 will be a productive year for everyone who have joined us.

Then it was an offer to host a reality show on TV9 called 'Gadis Melayu' for 12 episodes.

Then another offer to be the Image columnist for Mingguan The Star for Star publications for whole year 2010.

Then being given the title as the 20 Most Glam by 'GLAM' magazine was an honour.

My hope for this year is to materialise my dreams and vision to make 'Adamaya' a well known brand all over Malaysia , then Asia in the arena of Multilevel Marketing Business.

'Adamaya' product lines will be officially launched before the Chinese New Year celebration at its headquarters in Kota Damansara near Sg Buloh.

Well for me no matter what Adamaya is moving on with great speed and there's no stopping us!

To me there's no point in making new resolutions every year when the old ones were kept unresolved... be it in your career, family or personal relationships .. sometimes there are a few issues/things/people you need to let go in order to free yourself from the emotional burden you've been having that became the barriers and limitations towards showing your full potential and giving your best focus in achieving your goals. Get it ?

'Life's real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you give up....'

Happy New Year 2010 to everyone and wish you all the best !
