About my time in Bali

I have had the fortune of living in Bali, Indonesia, working at the  Chinese medicine clinic at Yayasan Bumi Sehat, a natural birthing centre in Bali, Indonesia.

It was 5 years of an incredible experience in fertility, pregnancy, birthing and general health for the whole community. This experience helped to create my passion to empower women in their life’s healing journeys.

Plum (梅: mei) is a highly valued plant in Chinese Culture. The beauty of its tree and blossoms inspires many works of art and poetry, while its fruits have been commonly used in Chinese culinary and medication.

Plum blossoms (梅花: Méi Huā) usually bloom by the end of winter against the snow and frosts. It beautifies its surrounding while other plants shed their leaves and rest in the harsh cold weather, offering unequaled view in the season. For this special quality, the plum blossom was admired as an icon of endurance and perseverance.

Its timing in the budding had made it a symbol of rebirth and faith for the return of the spring. Therefore, it became the representative flower of winter in the “Flowers of the Four Seasons” (四季花: Si Ji Hua) along with Orchid (spring), Lotus (summer) and Chrysanthemum (Autumn).
