A Dollar For You

My heart is broken to see the world break. Into pieces of ignorance and lack of empathy. A world that is cold and distant, ironically united digitally yet shatters when united physically. A lost connection. It breaks my heart to smile to faces that do not seem to respond, yet so often use a smiling emoji when conversing on the other land. Where is sincerity, I ponder. And when you no longer recognize kindness and only strive for competition, where is the joy in life? Has sisterhood traveled too far it is no longer our mantra?

Or perhaps, I was simply playing in the wrong room. Ah yes, Diana. There are other playrooms still exciting. Not fake, not cold, but warm and genuine. And they are filled with positive energy that shall recharge me over and over again. I shall then search for one. I believe I can, so I will. Let no one dull my sparkle.

Is the world breaking? Maybe. But we can save it.

Good night.

An Encounter With Lady Marie France (Bodyline)

Whenever I hear the name “Marie France Bodyline”, the 2 things that go in my head are; it’s a slimming center, and it’s definitely not for me. Marie France Bodyline has been present in Indonesia for more than 20 years, so I am very familiar with this franchise and often pass by it inside the malls. But I have never been interested to try nor find out more about it because I guess, the place seemed very exclusive, posh, and somewhat ‘cold’.

It is only very recent that I had the opportunity and courage to even enter, find out and give it a try. Like oh my God, I finally laid my hands on Lady Marie hahah. In this post, I would like to share with you my first experience with Marie France Bodyline which turned out to be... extremely pleasant! Don’t judge a book by its cover, yes? :)

So I went to the outlet in Plaza Indonesia, because I just happen to hang out there often heheh. The location is on the 4th floor, easiest to access from the lift next to Givenchy. Exit the lift and you will instantly be in front of the venue already.

I was greeted by smiling ladies who then assisted me in explaining the type of treatments available. And it’s a proper introduction, you see. Just so you know what you will be really going through.

In my 1st visit, I went for VS3 Body Perfector which is one of the most recommended treatments here. It gives an immediate tightening of the skin, cellulite reduction and fat loss. During this visit, I also went for Fat Mobilization System (FMS), a cool wrap to improve skin structure and silhouette contour.

But before proceeding to the treatment, the staff will inquire about your health history and other vital information to make sure that this treatment is safe for you. Thank God I passed! :p

They'll also measure your body weight and height to calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI), so you'll know how much you have to lose to reach your ideal weight. If you're more into reducing a specific area, they'll be happy to focus the treatments on your desired targeted areas. Mine? Tummy and arms..:D

A nutritionist is also available to evaluate your eating habits and lifestyle, and give you health tips so you know what to improve on after the treatment(s).

So here I am, entering the Marie France Bodyline treatment area. Actually, it looks just like a salon or massage parlour, don’t you think? In the sense that the place is actually homey and not as “cold” as I thought it would be. I’m happy! :)

This was the VS3 Body Perfector treatment machine hehe...the process actually felt good and was followed by an actual relaxing massage and chocolate body mask.

Then comes the crazy freezing Fat Mobilization System (FMS) treatment, in which you will be mummified using an extremely cold wrap. The logic is when your body feels that cold, it forces your own body to burn fat naturally so you feel warmer. But I’m telling you, this was tough. It’s so so so cold, OMG. Gotta be winter-ready, I say..:D

And that was it! My 1st experience with Marie France Bodyline! Wasn’t bad at all, for sure. I love it! The whole session lasted around 1,5 hours.

I now shall continue my story because I then made a 2nd visit after 2 days heheh..:)

In this visit, I went for 3-S Lipo Stem (3SLS) and Mesosound BiActive System (MBST). The process was rather similar to VS3 Body Perfector, in which I basically just lie down playing with my phone while the lady rubs my tummy and other fatty parts using a machine. Both treatments are useful for fat elimination, body firming, cellulite dispersal and banish stretchmarks. They only differ in they way the treatment is done. While 3SLS feels like someone is simply rubbing and applying gel on your tummy, MBST felt like a vacuum cleaner and something inside me was being sucked out – but painless.

And I was doooooone! Happy and done!

From these 2 visits, my favorite is VS3 Body Perfector. I just loved the whole set of machine treatment, massage and chocolate body mask. I recommend you guys to try this one!

FYI, I lost 1.2 kg within these 2 visits only. I AM NOT LYING. I am so happyyyyyy hahahah.

And btw, during the treatments, I chatted a lot with the staffs at Marie France Bodyline, and I was very surprised to know that most of them have actually worked there for 15-20 years. Isn’t that amazing? Knowing this gives me the assurance that Marie France Bodyline is credible and professional and definitely full of love! :)

Tidy Up!

Breathing a bit, taking time to not think of work, stay at home, and...tidy up? Tidying up is probably the most therapeutic thing for me hehehe, and so I did.

Our reading area:

Our bedroom:

For bedding, we always always always go with plain white sheets. It feels very clean and comfortable you feel like lying down the whole time hahah. This one's from Goodnight, our favorite, because the fabric is thick enough yet extremely soft to the skin..:)
