So the past few weeks some of our team has been hopping from one Asian capital to another: Bangkok, Jakarta, Hong Kong. Can’t complain, really – especially given it was only +19 in HK, such a bliss! Enormous malls of JKT, happening bars and clubs of BKK and art craze of HK (Art Basel, yay!) – all of the above was a.m.a.z.i.n.g for a change but you know, Mama Bali is always calling you back.
To celebrate my act of pulang kampung – coming back to the village – I decided to soak in Bali, quite literally. The special Balinese treatment at Body Temple Spa was what dctor has ordered: scrub+massage+body polish, all using local, natural products. Zero modern twists, only old-school Balinese “golden standard”. Foot washing ritual. 1 hour of long strokes and gentle pressing, using pure virgin coconut oil. Then scrub with grated coconut and sea salt – I literally could eat this sambal, can I have the bungkus, please? A delicate face massage. And a cherry on the top – frangipani-scented body polish. Ahhh, it’s nice to be HOME.
