Aidan perfecting his wide-eyed puppy dog look~

Well, this was actually an attempt at taking Aidan's neat hairdo but it doesn't really show in the pictures.

Mom-in-law likes to comb his hair over (like a balding man attempting to cover his pate) after his bath and he looks sooo..erm, neat and kempt. Totally not used to it..but it will only remain this way as long as his hair is wet but when it dries up, it will go back to it's same ol' erm botak look...

National Day was a relaxing day for us..We had originally planned to go for golf practice since our lessons was cancelled but we felt sooooo lazy and didn't feel like 'exercising' so we decided to go for a massage instead.

Hubby was telling me about this great massage place at Selegie Road..apparently, his army mates had taken him there about 3 years ago and he said the Thai massage was fantastic..and one of his army mate had brought his wife along the last time and she'd told him that she had a great massage too. I was querying hubby whether that place was the sleazy sort, in view of it's location but he assured me it wasn't...

Well, he wasn't wrong. The massage was wonderful..It was definitely one of the best I've had in Singapore..The lady masseuse kneaded the muscles on my back really skillfully and it was bliss..and towards the end part of the massage, she 'flung' me about and I'd never heard my body creaked so much before..She was commenting that my body and limbs were pretty firm and solid, not unlike that of a guy (hmmm)..saying that most of the ladies she massaged tend to be very nua and soft...She asked whether I exercised alot..which of coz, I hadn't been doing much of.

The place however was quite empty..or rather, the female section was empty. I was the only one in the room (it was a big room with several mats on the floor). I asked her how was the business there and she said that it wasn't very good because they run a clean business unlike the massage place in the hotel opposite..whose speciality is liap lam pa [apparently, it cost 50 bucks for a 15 mins session]! I was like err....okay, learnt a new hokkien crude word today..Anyway, she'd sorta confirmed hubby's claim that this massage place was not of that sort ..

I wonder..why is it that the male's section includes sauna and steam room and the female's section doesn't??? Not very fair right?

Aidan's still cranky..he's been waking up a few times in the night and it usually takes a while to calm him down and to breastfeed him back to sleep.

The thing is..he is doing major havok with his singular tooth..he will basically suckle for a while, and then chomp hard with that tooth ..and after I'd reprimanded him, he will stop a while, look at me with his wide eyes and continue to suckle..and a while later...chomp! *OUCH*..

If he's like that with just one tooth, I hate to find out what he can do with his full set of teeth..urghh!

Thai massage!!!!!!!!!!!!!

how much??? how long's the duration???
Aug. 10th, 2003 10:12 am (UTC)
$75 bucks..for 90 minutes session.
Really really really good..done by Thai ladies.

I know it's expensive compared to those in Bangkok but compared to those massage done in spas, this is really reasonable!

Ask Richard..he writes abt it in his LJ pretty often :P...

Yeah..*sigh*..sian hor! Actually, CSI Miami aint tt bad..checked it out last Wednesday and I thought it was worth followin tho the characters are definitely far less interestin that those in the original. Kim Delaney is so irritatin n screechy but I heard they took her out after a few eps so it should get better :D..

Must be painful huh ? The sacrifices that we women have to go thru. Why couldnt we birth and men breastfeed. Dun understand !
Anyway... I used to go to this pplce in yishun for massage when I was in singapore. Swedish messages and it was very good. I miss massages and facials!
Aug. 10th, 2003 06:33 pm (UTC)
Well said, DarlinG! I think the men should breastfeed or God should make Men conceive.

ohOHohOhohOhohOhoh..thai massage.~~~~~~~~
I rem, appro 250baht per person for one hour..i fell in love with various thai women with oh so strong hands...*sniff* i miss her so much. or them. We went to a few, depending on where we were in the city that day. When she finishes with cracking my back, i thought i could kiss her.

So when we came back to sg, i looked up for a surprise for my s.o., but it was like $30/half hour or something like. !!!!!! at temple st, i think it's near chinatown? i don't know if it's sleazy or not, but she picked up the ph with an authentic thai accent. It only got weird when she quote me the prices in SGD instead of baht, not so authentic anymore. :/ i miss thai massage. It's the only massage i'm willing to go for right now.
Aug. 10th, 2003 09:28 pm (UTC)
eh..wats the conversion rate for baht to sing eh? Yeah, the great thing abt the bangkok massages are that they are cheap and good! Hee..u are just like me..I lurrveeeee massages..was like havin 2 hrs massage everyday in BK..
The one I went to was really an authentic thai massage includings all the 'gymnastics'..erm, it was a thai woman but she gotta speak english right!
Aug. 10th, 2003 08:06 pm (UTC)
$75 4 90min is cheap compare 2 those spa outside..
got d address to share?
Ouch aidan bite u? grrl...

Aug. 10th, 2003 09:25 pm (UTC)

wow.. the massage sounds sooooo good :) i went to esprit spa in holland village last week for their hot stone massage, it was the best!! equal to if not better than the one in banyantree bintan!! i almost fell asleep!! should have gone for the 90min one!!

as for Aidan biting you, just keep scolding.. gabe has 6 teeth now, and my mil said looks like another 2 are coming out.. it was really bad at first, and i kept scolding!! almost want to quit breastfeeding.. just persevere, it will get better!! :)
Aug. 10th, 2003 09:38 pm (UTC)
I actually got a pre-natal massage package from Esprit Spa and I've still got abt 4 more massages to spare..hmm..I should see if i can covert them to those hotstone massages..I've never tried them before..they use those stones to knead ur back right? Sounds so temptin....

6+2 teeth ? and still biting?? ouch ouch.
Yeah..gets so frustrating at times..at times, i even softly whack him a little so that he knows I mean it when I tell him not to...the thing is..he'll stop but start again much later grrrr...I guess we jus gotta constantly reinforce our displeasure when they do it..
Aug. 10th, 2003 09:47 pm (UTC)
LOL! Aidan already practising the wide-eyed puppy look eh? Heh, gonna come in useful with women next time ... y'know, like when guys do something wrong and they give women THAT look which says "Erm, did I really do that? Aw, sorweee..." *ahem* OK, I see it's not gonna work with you huh? Hahaha!

Thai massage is shiok-est! I always go for one when I'm on biz trip in Thailand. I guess S$75 is cheap by S'pore standards liao (and it includes sauna and steam bath for guys?), although it's a real steal in BKK, something like S$20+ for almost 3 hrs! Incredible right? Erm, but gotta watch out for the "value-added" services which they like to offer guys, no matter how un-sleazy the place looks. And S$50 for 15 minutes of liap-ing lam pa is ridiculous lah ... erm, NOT that I actually know the market rate from personal experience of coz. LOL!
Aug. 11th, 2003 04:14 am (UTC)
heh..i think im immune to it liao~~

20 bucks for 3hrs in BK? I dont think i had such a good deal there..probably abt 50 bucks for 3 hrs i think..

Hee..yeah i thought 50 bucks was really expensive especially since some may not require as long as 15 mins :P~

Peter and I went to BKK twice before Ethan was born. Peter enjoyed the massage, esp after the shopping there. After the massage, I said -like that lor. I wont' feel shoik after the whole session. So I guess I can spend the money on something else :)

ya, must teach Aidan not to bite you. cos Ethan used to bite me and my nipples bleed :(

Aug. 11th, 2003 01:11 am (UTC)
Well, the massages in BKK are really cheap so even if u don't enjoy them, at least it's not that bad..the ones in Singapore are so much more ex. I for one, am someone who loves massages..esp hard ones..mebbe that's y I love the thai massages.

Bleed?? No way. That must have hurt a lot. Does he still do it, esp now that he has more teeth? Ouch..

Aug. 10th, 2003 11:19 pm (UTC)

I only just realised what lovely, long lashes Aidan has ...

Aug. 11th, 2003 01:10 am (UTC)
yeah..they are rather long and slightly curly too..pretty lashes for a boy i think ..:)
Aug. 11th, 2003 01:18 am (UTC)
lol!! oh man! I'll just melt if he looked at me with those eyes!
Aug. 11th, 2003 04:13 am (UTC)
hee..that's the type of eyes he will stare at me with when I scold him for biting me *sigh*
Aug. 11th, 2003 07:13 am (UTC)

Aug. 11th, 2003 10:24 am (UTC)
