a short break

A short break to Koh Samui

For the past week I’ve been having ear ache and headache. Perhaps it is due to the shift of energies. We decided to take a break from the city and fly to Koh Samui for 5 days 4 nights. The week didn’t start well, my fault really, I got the time confused and so we missed our flight. I rescheduled the flight for the following day and this time we didn’t miss the fight. You see there’s only 1 flight a day to Koh Samui operated by Bangkok Airways coach share with Malaysian Airlines.

Finally we got into Koh Samui. My first impression, it was very quiet, quaint not as busy as Phuket. I was pleasantly surprised. Different energy from Bali. When we got to Renaissance Resort and Spa, another surprise awaited us. We got upgraded to a villa with a private pool and jacuzzi. Now it’s a small pool but it was somewhere I could spend time read a book by the pool and just dip in the pool to cool off.

The very small pool

I told you it was a small pool. 😀

We spend most of the day relaxing in the villa, tired out from probably the stress of the city and our bodies just needs to do nothing. We walked around the resort, and I happily snapped a few photos.

The view from around the grounds in the resort. The beach was nice and gentle where I took my feet for a dip to ground the energies that was coming into me (thank you my friend). However more energies are still coming in and I’m still integrating.

On to the second day of our trip. We went to the waterfalls there. I have always wanted to go to the waterfalls in Thailand, in fact any place with waterfall I love to go visit. There was a hike up to the mid point waterfall but we found too many people. Now there are 2 waterfall in this place. The highest is 80 metres up. So after resting for a few minutes we

continued to hike up the mountain. Drench in sweat, I will say it was well worth the hike. The view was beautiful.

The view

The water was nice and cool, and cooled off my body. I could have stayed in there for another hour. But it was getting busy.

The cold and refreshing waterfall

The nice and cool water..actually it was cold!

After the waterfalls we went to the secret garden. Paid a minimal amount to get in about 80 baht and in there were carvings of statues, animals. If I went there in the night it would be creepy.

I must say that I was not very riveted by this, I found it uninteresting.

After the secret garden we went for lunch at a cafe. It was here we saw this beautiful dog who was fast asleep. Cute as they come and so friendly. The waitress told us that he appeared a year ago, maybe he was abandoned by the owners. The waitress told us that he will follow any white person until he gave up. The restaurant owner let hang around  in the restaurant during the day. It is bitter sweet for the dog and I feel for the dog. All he wanted was somewhere he could go home and call home. We patted him, played with him and he wanted to follow us but we knew that isn’t possible. Why do people do that? Why abandoned your dog?! At least he is taken care of by the restaurant workers and owners.

I noticed one thing in Thailand, the stray dogs we saw were well fed.

This dog was relaxing when we were going up to the waterfalls

It was a nice break. The next day I went for a beautiful massage, a treat I present to myself. Then it was time to go home. Just too short a break.

Below are a few photos around the grounds in Renaissance Resort & Spa. The next time we go, I will definitely visit fisherman’s village. Unfortunately this time round, we missed the night markets where I wanted to see what trinkets they had. Ahh next time.

On a side note, as a healer, I must learn to relax and receive the beauty around. Sometimes my guides just push me into a “ME time” time to rest. Not just about caring and healing others. I too need healing done. Right now, I’m having an intergration of energies. Preparing for my next Archangel workshop in Singapore in July, my crystal bowl healing meditation in June in KL. Those who need healing, card reading while I’m in Singapore, please do message me.
