Villa Samadhi

Still a little bit more to go.... just a little.

Everyone in the company is anticipating the birth of our latest project with great excitement. Villa Samadhi will be an exquisite property.... not just in exterior and interior design but in class and personal service too. We want it to be one of the top 3 residences in Malaysia!

Villa Samadhi is best described as an intimate urban retreat; KL’s ultimate ‘treat to nest in’. This chic villa-in-a-room concept offers a trendy collection of contemporary Asian-inspired rooms, each spanning from 600 square-foot to over 2000 square-foot of living spaces.

The 21 polished-concrete private rooms are fitted with refined salvaged- timber floors and interior, plush beds, over-sized plunge tubs, romantic balconies, furnished with tech-amenities. While some ‘villas’ are fully-equipped with modern kitchens and private gardens, ground-floor rooms are with room-to-water access to the ‘lagoon’.

Bumbung, (the layered roof structure in the pic) the laid-back rustic rooftop tea lounge is premeditated for chill-out sundowns amid KL’s urban drone. Housed within a quiet, upscale residential locale just minutes away from KL city centre, Villa Samadhi is a dream state.

Minimalistic yet intricate, healthy yet yummy. What more could one ask for? NEO-living should be the new way of life, whether you're a fashionistic figure-watcher or the regular food lover. Neo-cuisine is the new era, at the advent of organics, macrobiotics, free-range and when 'green' is no longer just a color but a mindset. That's pretty NEO-rotic don't you think...?

Think about a better lifestyle, a better physique, far better health and a greater life. Well, start cutting out bad fats, make sensible food choices and kicking unhealthy eating habits. Afterall, you ARE what you eat. And life is short, so what are you waiting for?

Start now. Start by changing when you eat and how much you eat; start eating SMALLER MEALS, more often everyday. Satiate your hunger with high protein, high fibre and low carb food that'll fuel your body. Many don't realize that most times our energy levels are directly affected by the KINDS of food we feed our body. Highly processed food like wheat and sugar can cause your blood sugar to plunge, leading to sudden lethargy. So start making sensible food choices; choose wholegrain or multigrain bread over white bread; choose fresh fruit juice over canned drinks; choose sashimi over tempura. Combine with lots of greens like steamed broccoli, raw baby spinach and other mixed greens with fruits.

Indulge, you may of however, in MODERATION. Opt for one 'junk' day in a week when you allow yourself to eat what you want. But only after 2 weeks of 'eating right'. As the saying goes, too much of a good thing is not good either....

There's also much debate about the relationship between cancer and how food is cooked. Think twice before ordering anything WELL DONE as over-cooked meats are carcinogenic. So start indulging in raw or seared meats instead.

You CAN be a better you... if you put your mind to it. It takes self-control, lots of discipline and will power with realistic short-term diet goals, by throwing a consistent exercise regime into the mix for faster, more dramatic results. As beautifully put by Astrid Alauda, "Your body is a temple, but only if you treat it as one".
