Escaping Daddy book

The last time I read a book like this was Daddy's Little Secret. That was 2 years back. After that, I was too depressed to touch another book like that. However, I actually bought Daddy's Little Secret together with this Escaping Daddy book.

I don't know what went on in my mind when I decided to buy two very depressing books. I thought it would be a different read from my normal romance genre. Since the first book, I have not read Escaping Daddy til now. Just imagine the impact of a sexually abusive relationship story it had on me. I dare not read another like that.

But since I've already bought it and this book was collecting dust for two years, I decided to now read the story of a child who was made a prostitute by her very own dad when she was only in her teens.

Why would any dad make their daughter a prostitute is beyond me but he made her one to earn him money and even raped her himself and sometimes even watched 'clients' rape her in front of him! This is the author's real life story and what's even worst is that she managed to escape from her dad, only to go into another abusive relationship. Her husband physically abused her time to time by punching her in the face til blood spurts out and he even broke her nose.

It's probably something to do with psychology or because these victims have nowhere to go, somehow we always hear stories of the victims going back to their abusers. This is no exception. I was quite frustrated at the number of times she forgave her husband and went back to him only to be punched in the face again! Like O-M-G, stop punching your frigging wife!!!

However, she's quite a strong person. She would fight back at times, get an injunction against him, and try to start anew. Her actions fail certain times but she finally managed to gather enough courage to leave him once and for all. But that's not the end. Her second marriage didn't last but this time around, no physical abuse was involved. After many more failed relationships, going through depression, cutting and suicide attempts, she finally got through life with counselling, self help books and going back to school. She even managed to start a self-esteem course and go for holidays after saving money. Life was getting better and her two sons grew up to be nothing like her dad or her other previous husbands and they even have families of their own. She is also going to church and has met a wonderful guy who doesn't treat her like a sex object. All in all, it's good that she has her life back now, enjoying every minute of it =)

This is not a story telling kind of book. It is more of the author's life events. So the timeline could be jumbled up. Something like her biography. If you're interested to know more about how people cope with abuse, depression, suicide attempts and still come out strong, do pick up this book =)

After Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson, this will be my last last book about torture. In fact, I haven't bought any of such books anymore. Now, I'm sticking to chick flicks and romance! My reading time is leisure time for fantasy not heartbreak. But definitely, what an eye opener!

Cres Wellness Plotox Micro Facelift

It's been ages since my last facial! About time for me to pamper myself and to relax!

My stop for a pampering session is Cres Wellness, USJ Taipan.

Cres Wellness is introducing their newest facial treatment, which is the Plotox Micro Facelift. It uses nanotechnology and biological liposome encapsulating technology to combine the anti-aging factor "Green Peptides" and whitening factor "AHAS" that penetrates quickly into deep skin cells to provide nutrition to the cell. This increases the production of collagen and elastic fibers making skin look full, shiny, white and young. This treatment will provide visible results within 15 minutes! You will see a rapid repair of the ruptured collagen, reduced wrinkles, tightened eye bags, reduced pores size and lifted and sharpened facial contour. You may look 5-10 years younger with a continuous therapy for 3 months.

So here I am at the USJ Taipan outlet.

Very spacious and nice setting.

The room was pretty cozy and just the right temperature.

Changed into the tube gown and ready for my facial.

I love how they have a bolster on the bed for underneath your legs for comfort =)

The Plotox Micro Facelift consist of these steps:

1. Cleanse

2. Double cleanse

3. Mist spray

4. Scrub mask

5. Head massage(which was sooo good!)

6.Face steam

Cres' face steam is cold and refreshing!

7. Then time for Extraction (I was very surprised that this time my extraction was not painful at all! I normally cringe when it's time for extraction but my beautician was sooo good that she managed to make it not painful at all. She was so delicate and so careful and also because I reminded her that my skin is sensitive and will easily be red. This is the first facial after so many years that I actually liked extraction because it was so bearable and my blackheads were gone in minutes ^^)

8. Concentrate serum applied to reduce redness and to rejuvenate skin. The effect was immediate because the beautician showed me a mirror for comparison. My skin was brighter and younger looking as compared to the previous dull skin.

9. Repair serum for skin healing after extraction

10. Machine is used to massage skin for better absorption of serum

11. Face massage(I actually dozed off!)

12. Cooling Mask

13. Shoulder massage

14. Skincare application

Overall, I had a fantastic time =))) I enjoyed the facial and the massages so much. My body felt so relaxed! My face is so much smoother as well. 

Above: *hides face* Forehead so much bumps of blackheads -.-
Below: Aside from the one red mark not healed yet from extraction, my other blackheads were gone and no redness! YAY! (picture no edit)

The Plotox Micro Facelift costs RM525 but since Cres is celebrating their 11th anniversary, check out their promotion starting from RM899 which is a package plus free product.
