How not to laugh when someone’s giving you a foot massage.
As you may or may not know, I got myself a pedicure in Koh Lanta, that pedicure was about 6 weeks ago, and so I figured it was probably time to get a new one. To be fair, this one has lasted extremely well, I was pretty impressed. The hotel had recommended a spa down the road to go to, so I decided I’d go in the afternoon.
After a lovely morning walking round Hoi An, buying a couple of presents (oh you lucky people you!) having lunch, sight-seeing etc, we came back to cool off, have showers, and for me to write out the million postcards we’d just bought (Lee trying out his bartering ‘skills’).
Off I went to the spa, I even got picked up which was fun. Unfortunately I hadn’t realised the pick-up would be via scooter, and so I’d worn a long skirt, which I thought would be sensible, as I could just pull it up for the pedicure! Getting on a scooter with a long skirt, is really, really hard work, and you look kind of stupid, or at least I did, in all my ungainliness! I’d opted for the ‘Aloe Vera Deluxe Manicure and Pedicure’, which was very nice. Unfortunately I’m very ticklish, like extremely so, and I was a little worried that I may embarrass myself.
Luckily they were playing ‘soothing’ music, or at least the instrumental versions of relaxing, well known songs. It turns out that even if you start off by tickling my feet, if a musical rendition of the Titanic comes on, I will almost immediately stop laughing. Instead I will actually become quite sad, how embarrassing!
Once my hands and feet had been beautifully pampered, and my nails were once more coloured, I was taken to the back (I wanted my hair washing, as I still couldn’t get the Cambodia dust out), and had the ‘delights’ of seeing a man getting a massage. He had a hairy bum.
I apologise for all my blogs coming in bulk, I write as I go and forget to post them..oops! Also, as a line back to a previous blog, I still have Christmas songs in my head, only thins time it's 'Jingle Bells', all thanks to a tv show on in a cafe in Dalat...thanks Dalat!
