Big sigh of relief...



When da missus decided to give Yoga a try last week, I had to opportunity to sit in on (and photograph hehe) a beginners' Yoga session conducted by this wonderful woman.

It was different from the open air sessions as the acoustics in the studio meant you could hear her soothing voice very clearly. The woman has an uncanny ability to sooth and calm a restless mind and by the end of the session, even I felt somewhat relaxed!

Went for a colonoscopy for the first time in my life today. The procedure involves inserting a tube with a video camera on the tip, into one's nether regions, and having a look around to find any unusual growths or ulcers in the colon.

The process starts the day before with two doses of mild laxatives that have you parked on the loo for hours. This is necessary of course to ensure a clear picture when they go in. Before the procedure, a sedative is administered that puts you in the twilight zone.

You can still feel the tube going in and its not so bad... BUT as it reaches the transverse colon towards the descending colon, it feels like you just got punched in the gut! OOOOF!

Anyway, after the brief procedure, it was a big relief to learn that my colon is clear. I will sleep well tonight...

    katie-ella: I was contemplating posting pics of my colon, but I think that would be WAY too much info! Well, until one has to go through the same procedure of course! Heheh!

  3. Not going to comment on the colon experience. But definitely Danura's voice is indeed soothing and reassuring. Her class is great and many of us enjoyed every moment of it!. I like it when she reassured us that some of the difficult yoga poses represent the challenges in our life that we must go through and excel!

  7. Better for it to go down... rather than going up through the...

    Um... nvm...

    Anyway that looks like an awesome yoga session. Bringing a reflective umbrella into that confined environment would net good results, alongside other strobes helping to carve out the yoga practicioner's shapes.

The House That Jack Built...

I really enjoyed reading Jack's post on Brunei businesses going bust. Absolutely agree that its not all gloom and doom and its just a matter of time before the economy starts pumping again with all those projects slated for the 9th RKN.

My only concern is this, what do we do before then? Aside from jostling for position with arms (and mouths) wide-open, ready for the giant JPKE to award those "mega-projects"?

Anyway, thats boring stuff. I was more excited by the suggestion that Brunei become a retirement village for the rich (and famous?). I like that idea, and I think it can work! Not only as retirement village but also as a residential base for executives from multi-national companies, it would be ideal. With all ASEAN capitals within a short flying distance, these executives could telecommute daily and fly to and from meetings as and when.

In return, they would get a safe, tax-free, and clean environment to bring up their families.
