    I did not go there for a Tan..... However i did something else WAY DOWN SOUTH........ Its much Cooler then i expected.. heehee! However, this is not the first time i have done it and let me tell you ALL.... ABOUT..... IT....

    I was surprised when i received the phamplet at a bugis roadshow. Surprised about the price and after talking to the lady who gladly informed me she run the whole penguin show..... I was pretty curious and perhaps i felt its time to do some HOUSEKEEPING... and so one fine day.. about a week later I've decided to make appointment and to my good luck... I've managed to secure one in the rush hour evening.... and so... here i go...

    While walking to cineleisure i was secretly giggling to myself about how a good deal i've got as compared to my last wax... this one is one third the price... and so.. i was really happy... When i reached the place.... i was early and more then READY to GET CLEANED UP.......

    Located at level 5 with a good city view next to me.. I can't help not fidgiting with excitement. After acknowledging my appointment, the lady at the bar counter gracefully lead me to small cosy area to fill up some details. I could see a good bunch of magazines on the table which i believed had been sorely utilized by boring boyfriends or whoever waiting.

    After submitting my filled form, I was given a small towel and lead to a make-shift shower room. I was told to wash up with water and dry myself and proceed to a small room just next to the tight couch i sat on earlier. I was thinking to myself " NO SILKY ROBE"........ Nevermind.. The shower room was not small... however.. the shower area is badly stained with tanning lotions.. i could see brown patches everywhere and its not exactly as clean by my standards.. But I told myself.. KEEP AN OPEN MIND... WE NEVER KNOW UNTIL IT ENDS... and so after light washing... I wore back my jeans and proceeded to the room...

    While in the room, I met my wax specialist... in other words.. the torturer today....... No Comfy towels.... Just one massage bed and one piece of paper that i think i used that to draw when i was teaching pre school kids.. anyway.. i asked her..." DO I Un-Robe NOW" and she said.. Yes.. Bottom only.. and so there i go... as naked as i was born.. on a cold cold piece of paper atop a massage table.. all ready to be tortured.......

    There was no numbing cream or watsoever..... she started with the strip wax.. which is OUCH OUCH OUCH OUCH OUCH! Its QUICK, It took out alot of hair but it sure hurts...... At that point of time.. while looking at the chandelier right above me.... I could not but ask her.... WHAT DO YOU DO to DROWN OFF the SCREAMs... she gracefully replied.. No SCREAMS.. only GIGGLEs..... We turn up the music..... NO SCREAMS.. MY A**...... How could it be...

    As it moves downwards. she started to use the hardwax... which is too hot for my delight.... Perhaps too pampered by my last waxing lady.... I feel not so comfortable... But the hardwax is not as AWWWWSome as the strip wax...... At least I only OUCH twice... All she did to reduce my pain was spray something on the area which i thought was numbing stuffs.. but it turned out to be just some rose water.... I was HEARTBROKEN.......

    One thing i liked about her is that she took time to tweeze out the stubborn and baby hairs.. and it did look quite clean and pretty afterwards.... After my thrill ride ended.. there was no lollipop... no soothing cream, just a word of advise that there will still be some wax stuck.. which will rub off once i take a shower... I mean who would RUB... OUCH !!!!

    After dressing up i proceeded to make payment and she was nice and handed me a professional looking after wax directions. She also informed me of a one year unlimited waxing for less then $30 per month which is a real great deal. However, I need some time to think about it....

    Today, I am still tempted to take up the offer.. I mean unlimited waxing... but then again.. there is still much to consider.... For seasonal waxers...... this is a fabulous place to go to.. QUICK, CLEAN and VALUE FOR MONEY.. But for fast timers.... I advise to bring a huge lollipop to suck on... help ease the screams........ First Timers.. THINK AGAIN!

    Pictures perhaps I'm too traumatise..... Next time perhaps....
