Week 8 at Jamu Spa School | Exam day and visiting Denpasar

WOOH, I’M DONE!!! Exam day turned out to be less stressful than I expected and it went mostly smoothly. I was just expected to have a little discussion with the examiner afterward but she left as quickly as she arrived. Ros and Ketut said I did well though and they’re confident I passed. Just gotta wait … Read More

Week 7 at Jamu Spa School |Yet another graduation

Gah week 7!!!! That means only one week left of my course and I can’t wait to finish. I’m so done with studying and attending morning teas and graduations and meeting new students. 2 months isn’t even that long but I’m over Bali. My final two weeks is dedicated solely to massage practice for my … Read More

Week 6 at Jamu Spa School | Scrubs, scrubs, scrubs!

Week 6 at Jamu Spa School | Scrubs, scrubs, scrubs!

Bit of a late post this one. For the past few days I’ve been focusing on study for the exam, it’s already next Saturday! I’m feeling a lot more positive lately, maybe because it’s nearing exciting events i.e. (a) finally finishing the diploma and (b) getting to go home. I know as much as I … Read More

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy

I’ve always had a thing for smelling every product in beauty and health stores. Even pharmacies. Whether it’s hand creams, perfumes, oils, soaps, gels, lotions.. I love smelling them all. Though I never have the intention to buy any products. I just love experiencing the different sensation and invigoration it gives me, and finding out … Read More

Week 4 at Jamu Spa School | Earthquakes, Facial acupuncture, and Essential oils

This week went by rather quickly but it also felt the longest! I think I’ve had a total of 10 massage models now so I’ve been getting a lot of practice and it’s nice to get a feel of a variety of body shapes, conditions, and sizes. I’m feeling pretty confident in body massage and … Read More

Week 3 at Jamu Spa School | It’s feeling a little quiet

Well, it’s been relatively quiet this week but I’ve finally begun practising massage! I feel pretty natural at massage and I’m picking up techniques quickly which is awesome. I’ve only had a few models so far though but I think there’ll be a lot of hands-on experience for the next 5 weeks. I didn’t know I … Read More

Week 2 at Jamu Spa School | Language, Learnings, and Lack of sleep

Week 2 at Jamu Spa School |  Language, Learnings, and Lack of sleep

I can’t believe it’s only been like a week and a half since I arrived from Singapore. I feel like I’ve been living here for a month. Either that’s a sign I’m not having fun or that I’ve assimilated a little to fast to Bali. I’m sure it’s the latter though. I’m quite enjoying the … Read More

Week 1 at Jamu Spa School | Adapting to life in Bali

Week 1 at Jamu Spa School | Adapting to life in Bali

Wow, it’s felt like a long week. I’ve made myself feel at home at Andree’s and I feel like I’m back into routine. Except I’m in an entirely different country where the pace of life is different, language is sometimes a barrier. School has felt intense. I’ve started off with the anatomy & physiology diploma … Read More

My first day at Jamu Spa School

My first day at Jamu Spa School

Gosh it feels nice to be studying again! It might sound strange or wack to a lot of people to say I’ve missed it. I miss getting my lecture notes organised, absorbing new information, and being in a focused learning environment. It’s like I’ve been deprived of intellectual stimuli. I guess it’s different when you’re taking … Read More
