This little chulet will be going on a long business trip to Europe next week…
One of the essential thing which she always pack is her ‘Peace of Mind’.
You see, unlike all chulet’s family members, chulet gets car-sick very easily. (And usually, on the business trip, it will mean spending hours and hours on the road..)
It is never destine for chulet to be chauffeured but to always graciously offered to be the driver.
The weird part is chulet never gets sea-sick or air-sick !!
According to wiki – When feeling motion but not seeing it (for example, in a ship with no windows), the inner eartransmits to the brain that it senses motion, but the eyes tell the brain that everything is still. As a result of the disconcordance, the brain will come to the conclusion that one of them is hallucinating and further conclude that the hallucination is due to poison ingestion. The brain responds by inducing vomiting, to clear the supposed toxin.
But for chulet, it is the case of “I-see-me-in-motion”, I turn green.
When I am on-board the plane or in the ship, I stay away from the windows. As long as I don’t look outside, I am good.
During one of chulet’s trip, she saw this little product from the page of the in-flight sales (sadly – that is the only place chulet usually ends up getting most of her stuff while on business trips). The product is call “Peace of Mind” by Origins. Basically what you do is massage tiny drops of the lotion into the back of your neck, temples, and earlobes. After that, just place your hand in front of your face and breath in deeply. It smells a bit like the eucalyptus leaves (koala’s food).
The bottle looks so cute – how could chulet resist. So, Chulet bought 1 pack.
Anyway, Chulet got so addicted to it that on her return flight, She bought another 6 bottles ! (Shame on her !! tsk tskk…)
Now, whenever Chulet travels on road, the motion sickness #__# is no longer so un-bearable…
(I have tried all those motion sickness pills but it makes me sleepy and drowsy, which is not helping since I need to be on my wits the minute I step out from the car to meet my clients)
