During the recent holiday, I spent 5 days in Singapore playing tourist. The last time I was there it was merely 7 years ago. Some would say, “Singapore is so near and boring. Go European cruises is better.” Yea right. That is because they have not been playing tourist. I know some people that goes there merely for shopping and not sightseeing.

For all fans of F1 racing, can you recognized this bridge?

This route is part of the F1 night race held in Singapore recently. The route is still closed for public when we was there and I see great opportunity for photography! Don’t you love tree pose, cos I do! 😉

Someone is trying hard to balance here *rolling eye* 🙄

The one posture that I would love to try is wheel pose with a CHAIR! But too bad, my house have only computer chairs or those with a high back rest chair and non like the one in the above picture.  I know Ikea is selling something similar like that but the thought of the RM90 makes me cringe!  Ya la, I know I’m such a stingy poker. *blueh*

Now the conclusion on Yogazone after under Receivership hand since August 7th is…. *drum rolling please*

Yogazone will have cease ceased operation effective from September 15, 2008 onwards. Wan chang jor. Let’s all have a moment of silence please.



OK, done!

If you want to know further updates on YZ, please refer to YogaLover88, Joshua’s Haven and for the compilation history of YZ glory days till kingdom failure, please refer to Spy Yoga. All thanks to their blog if not I am still in the dark on the outcome of YZ. I was just wondering, why YZ or receivership company or who ever, did not bother to even send at least an official letter stating the closure or whatever it is concern to the 20,000 members? Cease business operation like this matter is equivalent to money scam! No? Sometimes I really pity those aunties, uncles, ah moi, ah beng who is not computer savvy. Pity them everyday purposely drove by YZ Klang hoping to see the door miraculously open for business one day. But little did they know the door will forever remain closed till the day the land lord or a new tenant decided to bring down the signboard.

Oh, talking about money scam, whoever wants to try their luck to claim back what is owing to them in monetary form can try to file for refund from The Small Claims Court aka Tribunal for Consumer Claim Malaysia which handles claims not exceeding RM5000. The form cost RM5.00. The Tribunal will settle within 2 months period.

Tribunal Tuntutan Pengguna Malaysia ,
Tingkat 16, Putra Place ,
100, Jalan Putra,
Tel: 03 – 40492300 / 40424181 Fax: 03 – 40424259

Website: http://ttpm.kpdnhep.gov.my/portal/index.php

And what I excerpt from Fei’s comment in YogaLover88 blog, in the “Respondent column”, you should fill up Yogazone particular like below:

Name of Respondent : The Yoga Zone Group Sdn Bhd
I.C. No. / Registration Company No. : 680406-X
Address : No. 30-1, Jalan 2/109E, Desa Business Park, Taman Desa, Off Jalan Klang Lama, 58100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Tel. No. : 03 – 7987 7680
H/P No. : nil
Fax No. : 03 – 7983 2676
Email : info@yogazone.com.my

I hope the information is helpful for those who is in a lost.

I read also Centro is auctioning out equipments to recover their loses.  Anyone know the dates?  I would love to grab one of the gym ball.  And also, whoever from Klang is going to the Consumer Tribunal office, I would like to hitch a hike too.  RM3.5k is a lot for me.  I can buy a very good camera lens with that money you know!

The “Journey of The Twisted Body and Twisted Mind” continue it’s search for a place to twist. Sad to say but glad to realised, life still goes on and it is great after all. Errr… not really great but then I can make do with anything I had.

I’ve been asking for rates and looking for a suitable place to practice and finally, attended a trial class in Yoga Franchise, Klang. I mentioned to Nava that I was formerly practicing from Yogazone and he instantly snapped. Ya, ya, heard that bla bla bla bla! Seems like the whole world has heard about YZ crisis. Yoga Franchise offer traditional yoga. The flow is so much different from Yogazone as Nava claimed that Yogazone has modified it to make them more commercialized to the public. I know nuts about that so no comment from me.

I find traditional Yoga a bit slow and maybe too relaxing. I am trying to get used to it especially having a total of 6 savasanas (or maybe more cos I gave up counting them!) in between asana. That is way too relaxing and we was practicing in a air-conditioning room. I hardly even perspire. End of the 60 minutes class, he drew out this on the white board.

Disciple #1 to be practice everyday for at least 10 minutes everyday – While he was briefing on Shatkarmas, I kept looking at the clock hanging above him. *yawn*

Disciple #2 is my favourite practice (15 minutes everyday) – Now, this is what I finally understood after attending Yoga classes for a year plus. The sequence of practising asanas!

  • 2 sets of Sun salutation
  • Backbend
  • Forwardbend
  • Twisting
  • Inverted

It snapped me hard after reading disciple #2. No wonder we always do headstand lastly. He explained the reason behind it but all the teaching goes in one ear and out another ear. *blushing*

Disciple #3 & #4 – I started to drift into dreamland again. The only thing I remember is the prana as I adhered to it. Never drink/bath/eat right after class. You will lost all your prana.

After explaining all that, the other yogis was seen jotting the 4 disciples on papers and some was using their PDA. I took out my faithful camera and take a shot. Everyone was amazed including Nava! Aiyah talking about bloggers. Tehehe. We don’t part with our camera. Next thing I know, everyone follow suit and started taking picture using their mobile phone instead of jotting them down on paper. Class dismissed earlier than way too 😉 .

You mean, just like that? No one explain anything to the members? If not because of the comments in my blog, I will be like one (or many) of the Aunties standing behind the closed grill looking so lost. So how about those Aunties that is not internet savvy? These are the people that falls to gossiping and only listen to one side of the story. This is what you called yourself professional? Please la! Where is the responsibility? The commitment? The professionalism? Ple.lea.se. la!

Through this past weeks of ordeal, I’ve learn a lot of things from all of you out there. Many words out there that I’ve never heard of and some are great philosophies. On the other hand, it is not easy for me this past few weeks moderating comments. At times, I have to stay up till the wee hours to approved comments. Sometimes, I have to play detective screening thru genuine commentators and so-called trouble maker. When my bandwidth exceeded, I have to forked out $$$ for upgrading. Even during a holiday, I mind never stop thinking of the crisis. It wasn’t like before anymore.

It was great to be back from a short holiday. I am sure everybody can’t wait to face the truth on Monday. Thank goodness classes is seen to resumed this morning. At least there is a little hope there that keep us going. As usual, I can foresee a little gossiping here and there. That is the human nature. God, please forgive them. For the teachers that continue with their classes, blessed their little heart.

Anyone care to explain what is the meaning of Yoga Body, Yoga Mind?

After a month of living like a lost little sheep, finally the official notice of Yoga Zone taken over by a new management is up. No doubt, we are still looking lost. Questions start popping up among practitioners. Will they (new management) still honor our membership especially those signing up Lifetime Membership? Will they obsolete the massage voucher we are holding? Where shall we stand after this? Shall just wait and see how thing goes after a week. Keeping my fingers and toes cross now.

I used to attend classes right after work and since I have a very tight working schedule, I can’t plan before hand when I may turn up for practise. To be safe, I have a bag full of my attire thrown in the car boot. Owing 7 sets of attire is a common sight for ladies (what’s more, we have 30 pairs of shoes in the house) but owing 7 towels is crazy. Or maybe that was me. *shrug* Ok. So I have only 3 towels. If any of the day the 3 towels is left at home, I am in a dead meat. So what do I do? Cursing under my breath that I wish they have a vending machine supplying towel. I know some centre do provide towel but in my case, it isn’t. To be less obvious, I just use my sleeve. Worst scenario would be having a stack of their (get from the toilet) paper towel with me. This is vending machine number 1 I wish they would fix in the toilet.

Vending machine number 2 would be selling rubber band. Lame isn’t it? I had long hair that is slightly shorter than waist length. Most of the time I never tie them up at work. If I happen to go for my practise that day, I am in a dead meat. Again. So what do I do? Cursing under my breath that I wish they have a vending machine selling rubber band. But, the kind soul at the front desk is always willing to be the ‘supplier’. Sometimes, I really feel paiseh to ask for a rubber band as they are always out of rubber bands!  How pathetic that is. The torturing part would be removing the band from our hair as they tend to tangle up few strands of our hair. Guys are so lucky as they do not face the ‘rubber band’ problem.

Vending machine number 3.

G-string & strapless bra.

Ok.  You can stop laughing now.  I am not kidding you.

I cringe each time I saw other ladies wearing leotard and yet the visible pantie outline is so obvious.  That.is.just.so.ugly!  You bet I have gone commando several times when I happen to be on ‘aunty’ pantie or girdle.  And how about your spaghetti strap top that doesn’t go well with that nondetachable strap bra?  So what do I do?  Cursing under my breath that I wish they have a vending machine suppying disposable g-string and …. bra?  Siao!

What vending machine do you wish they had in your toilet?

p/s:  Guys, please don’t bother to understand my crap if you are confused. lol.

I have been thinking for the past 48 hours if I should step up and voice out something…. nice…. (just incase someone decided to shot me in my butt). I really don’t know how I should write or maybe keeping a silence is a bliss. My mind is definitely, absolutely, totally blank for the past 2 hours. I felt like myself just waking up from a terrible nightmare. One minute I am here entertaining myself in my boring blog, the next minute, *poof!* the traffic never stop coming in every single minute and for the whole day today, I just sat in front of my puter moderating comments. YogaJess recorded a new traffic record too! 1632 pageviews (normal days 50 pageviews), total visitor 428 per day (normal days hardly even touches 15 people) and the meter is still running. Updated: As of 12midnight, the traffic record is 2,453 pageviews and total visitors 581. 16 July 08 – New!!! traffic record is 3,059 pageviews and total visitors 688. 17 July 08 – 2,561 pageviews and new record for total visitors is 708. (errr… more and more visitors each day. *wipe sweat*) 18 July, 08 – 3,430 pageviews and total visitors is 1,055!!!! (I almost ran out of bandwidth. You guys no need to work issit? Some of you can camp in my blog for the whole day! Quick go to the bank! TJ bank in your salary already!) Updated 28 July 08 – How I wish the share market soars like the new traffic record with 4,937 pageviews and total number of visitors is 1,401. (This time, I get a notice from my hosting company to upgrade the server to accommodate the exceeded bandwidth. $$$ bye-bye money $$$). Update on 29 July 08 – 5206 pageviews and total number of visitors is 1,535. Update:Â 30 July 08 – 6,218 pageviews and total number of visitors is 2,056

I just want to ask, how did you people ended up here? I mean it started with Fei, Cassandra and Yoga Man. And obviously Cassandra pass my link to TJ and I presumed Yoga Man does the same too. If my assumption is wrong, please forgive me. I against my webmaster idea to disable the comment box. The main reason is because I am afraid I might be one of (TJ’s) victim too. After reading through more than 50 comments, I kinda have a clearer picture as what is going on out there. Well, there is always 2 side of the coin. At the meantime, I need to have faith in TJ to overcome his financial difficulties or whatever the trouble he is facing right now. I had spent about RM3.5k for the membership. Of course I do not wish to see him ‘die’. *tic tak calculator, wipe sweat from forehead* YZ, please don’t dissapoint us.

As for the Teachers, I am sorry to read what you’ve gone thru. That is beyond my comment and none of my business. I will still leave the comment box open and please, we are all educated people. No vulgar language, ok? Sorry TJ. The battle continue. 30 fingers pointing at one. This is difficult to ignore.
