I’m excited!!! In 8 hours, I had a massage appointment with a friend of my maid… It has been ages since I had my last massage.
8.5 hours afterwards actually.. But that’s alright because I have never been better!
My masseuse was a 65-year old lady, I would say she was a very healthy person. She has lead an physically active life, 4 children, an ex-farmer, and a present freelance masseuse with short nails, perfect.
I didn’t know whether I was being mean or not but I only had IDR 45.000 on me so I gave her all for a 90 minutes body massage…
I drank a little amount of water for a person with a sore throat like me though after the massage, my throat became a lot better! She was amazing. No wonder my maid (whom I considered as my aunt) said that she was the best masseuse.
There’s a language barrier since she was a Javanese and though I’ve lived here long enough yet I haven’t been fluent with my Javanese.
I asked her of her day as a housewife and she told me that she couldn’t avoid working (physically), if she didn’t work, shw would feel so exhausted, weary and joints pain all over her body… So, she kept her life active with houseworks, cooking, exercise, etc.
