The Wonders of Reiki

Can't remember the last time since I sprained my ankle, nor which ankle. :p

Aniway, I was wearing my "new" shoes on Good Friday Eve and being not acustomised to the height, i twisted my ankle accidentally while on the escalator. It didn't hurt at all but i did get a shock though. Feeling lucky i didn't hurt myself, i continued my day happily till late nite at KTV with Helu-trans alumni gang.

It all started when I had a chance to sit down at the coffeeshop at 201 for supper. I thought i should reiki my ankle a bit as I was sure it must have been hurt somehow though there was no pain at all. About an hour later, i suddenly felt pain in my left ankle and foot - er...the same kind of sore and swollen feeling you get when you sprain your ankle. Super bad, I had to limp home. Good thing was, it was just from the carpark and up to my place since Benny drove me back and it was 3 am at night so nobody saw me limping....hahaha.

Back home, I could really feel the pain now. I was hopping around the house on my good leg as i couldn't put my left leg on the floor. Basically, I couldn't move it without feeling pain. When I finally made it to bed, I curled myself up so i could clutch my ankle and reiki it. Quite painful that I didn't really sleep very soundly like I usually do.

Well, it was all worthwhile curling up the whole night in an awkward position clutching my ankle - the throbbing pain was gone by morning though it still hurt a bit when I walked. Ok, I had some external help too - Benny sent me some distant reiki. By the time I was ready to go for the PAYCO alumni BBQ, i could walk reasonably well, just slow. Serina & WM were really nice to come back to Tampines to pick me up though I had planned to take a cab already.

By Saturday, I was walking properly already. Took a train to City Hall myself - did not cab ok.

Amazing huh, my sprained ankle self-healed with the help of reiki in just 2 days! No visit to the sinseh or any bandages/medication. Yes, I agree it sounds like some TV-media commercial but I don't blame you if you find it too good to be true. You've got to experience it to believe it but of course, I'm not cursing you to fall/ hurt yourself, ok. Anyway, whether you believe it or not, I'm still very pleased with how reiki worked!

My Mac is alive again!

Yay! After sooooo long, I finally got down to getting a new charger for my apple yesterday. So yong xing liang ku...brought my laptop down to Sim Lim in the sweltering heat but it was all worth it. My Ping Guo is up n kicking again!!! Am so glad its just a charger problem and not my Ping Guo turning rotten cuz getting a new one means $$$$$!

Tiring weekend but I am mighty pleased with my buys @ e bazaar sale at H & S but its a dangerous place for even the most rational shopper. If you stay long enough, you're bound to find something to buy somehow or another even though you have been through the whole shop for the n-th time - just like me but I'm sure I' m not alone. :) People take on a double identity- they are the seller and, the buyer too. N everywhere you go and anything u touch, everyone just gushes - oooh, dat's so nice, it looks soo good on you, its a good buy......etc, its just such a conducive environment to BUY, BUY & BUY. The whole place just feels like a "shopaholics anonymous" gathering!

Looking at the damage, I tell myself I really should not be shopping again for the next 1 to 2 months. Everyone, please be a kind soul and remind me if I attempt to buy anything that is Not A Necessity. As you know, I have a lousy memory. ;p
