Spoiled (1st of 2 Parts)

Oh Bangkok, I ♥ you. Everything has been great in the two months and two weeks that we've been here. I am adjusting faster than when I was in Cebu. See, I've learned from past experience.

There are three places/persons which I immediately look for when I move to a new place. I need a: (1) nail salon, (2) waxer, and (3) eyebrow shaper. I did find numbers 1 and 2. Eyebrow shaping/grooming is something I want to learn how to do on my own.

Tried a few nail salon and waxing places, so far I am very pleased with -

I love how the salon is walking distance from our condominium. I can easily snuck out of the house and come back with manicured nails after two hours. The salon only uses OPI products. The service reminds me of my favorite nail salon in Manila, Nail Spa.

I have relied on my guide books and travel guide for this recommendation. I need a waxer every month. I have had my arm and bikini waxed monthly for more than five years now. I tried a small-scale salon and I really thought I knew more than the lady who waxed my arms. I was so disheartened that I went back to my books and I found two books which recommended the same salon which is known as the best waxing place in Bangkok. Even if it is 6 train stations away, I would make my way there every month. Excellent and fast service. I was out in ten minutes. It took me longer to find the location of the salon.

As I am determined to learn to groom my own eyebrows, the budget for eyebrow shaping now goes to body and foot massages. What is the point of living in the land of massages when I won't get them regularly, right? I have loved massages and had them monthly before I had Javi. Now that we are here in Bangkok, I told Jed I want us to get a massage every month. A wonderful new friend treated me to a foot massage in Health Land and I swore I will go back there. We are lucky we live near the Sathorn branch of Health Land.

A foot massage for an hour is 250 baht in a place similar to the ambiance of The Spa in the Philippines. Health Land's rates are cheaper than those massage places near hotels here. I also learned that body massages could go as low as 250 baht upon purchase of the vouchers. It is no surprise waiting time on weekends and holidays could go for hours. We were told if we want to get a massage there, we have to go during weekdays or early on weekends.

Earlier today, Jed and I enjoyed a 3-hour spa treatment (body scrub, body massage and facial) at Lavana Bangkok from a excellent deal we found on Ensogo Thailand.

I'm truly getting spoiled here. I teased Jed that if this keeps up, I may want to stay in Bangkok for a while.

Watch out for my the little things that make living here in Bangkok so much enjoyable.
