Neobun Works For My Aching Back

I knew something had gone wrong the moment I coughed out hard due to the red chilli stuck in my throat...

That very morning I was having breakfast taking fried noodles when all of a sudden, I had to cough with my legs entwined and crossed... and at that moment, I felt a stab of pain behind my back... "Oh, oh.. cham! wrong angle to cough" ... and true enough, when I stood up, my back was sort of "hard".... "stiffened."

The next day 12.12.12, I woke up with the difficulty.. the pain at my back was excruciating... hmmmm... I had to adjust my angles of sitting up and standing.. from my waist down, the pain was like .... STIFF..

From that moment onwards, I walked like a Donald Duck....till.....
I bought this... a Giant Plaster...
How Giant is the Plaster?
See the keyboard?  The Big Plaster is nearly half as Big!
Yes, it helps... it covers the whole area of my .. er... lower Back Bone...
RM1.60 per piece...
and I am going to get another two pieces...
The Salonpas is too small for my Big Back...

Moral of the post :  Do not cross your legs when you want to cough!  hahahaa....


  1. aiyoh your 12.12.12 wasn't so nice at all huh?? so are your aching feeling better with that giant plaster??

  2. Aiya press 'ctrl alt del" to get rid of the pain hahaha gotta be careful must not stick for too long. Pain gotten rid off but then gain a bonus with rashes instead if you have sensitive skin.

  3. sk: yes.. definitely better esp during the daytime..

    bananaz: yeah,i get what you mean.. itchy itchy.. dont stick overnight.. sure gatal one.. :)

  4. Oh..never know about this brand..better check out at pharmacy and get it for my mom.

  5. that helps if one has stiff neck, shoulder or back pain.

  6. Go see Chinese sinseh for massage treatment. Sticking those things do not cure, just temporary relief

  7. I am sorry!!! It doesn't take much for our backs to go out and you never know what will do it! Does this give you heat? How long does it last?

  8. Hi Reana, regret to read of your back problem.
    One of the worst pains we can experience is back pain.
    I have suffered 3 times all my life, twice in Canada.

    And yes, only one word can describe a back pain, EXCRUCIATING! One time my wife had to help me get out of bed, out of chairs wherever, sitting, bending was a real backstabbing pain.

    I used that Japanese koyok on my back, as well upon advice from a German grandmother friend, I took Vit. E
    tablets and surprisingly, in a matter of two weeks, the pain had gone.
    Anyway, best have it checked by your doctor, go for a complete medical, Reana.
    You take care, ya.
    Best regards, keep a song in your heart.

  9. I tot I saw the Salonpas with big piece... anyway, me also started using that this year jor.. :p

  10. Jepun koyok is good for stiffness of any kind but I still think you need a good massage.

  11. mery: I heard got pedas one also!:)

    wenn: helps to relieve..

    stp: massage liow.. going for another one soon! :)

    ginny:yes, it is a sticker.. it helps to relieve only..

    U.Lee: so we are in the same era.. Vit E helps? To lubricate the joints perhaps...

  12. cyn: hey.. u still very youthful wor.. hehehe..

    irene: i went for one already.. thought of going for another one soon!

  13. i need that to ease my back ache

  14. I did not need these kind of plaster when I was still in my 30s..I need them more often now..age is catching up on me..scary..

  15. Aiskkk..i need this now. Last night was sitting on the floor doing crafting with my girls. Now my back is aching,

  16. oh dear... have you try go for urut ?

  17. hope it heals soon ya, do take care !

  18. Oh so 121212 is not a good day for you lo?

    Hope you'll feel better soon~

  19. hayley: i m better today! thanks!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
