Earth Hour is nothing but a gimmick. I mean, what's the point in switching your lights off for one lousy hour once a year when you should be trying to save electricity all year round??
I'm not saying I'm one of those "GO GREEN!!!" freaks who walk everywhere instead of driving, and taking public transport wherever I go, because I really cannot live without electricity. But I try to do my part, you know? I don't take plastic bags when I don't need it. I use Tiffin containers as much as possible when I buy food to go. I turn off my air conditioner before I sleep most of the time (unless it's really hot).
So why should I conform to switching off my lights for 60 minutes just because someone said I should? I'd rather do my part every day then jump onto the bandwagon for one hour.
Yes! I should really update this space. My poor poor blog has been abandoned. But not really, I've just pretty much jumped ship from Blogger to another blog host where I write all my private feelings and stuff, but the blog's not private. I know right! So weird.
A lot of things has been happening over the past two weeks. My emotions have been going on a rollercoaster ride and it has been wreaking havoc in some parts of my life, as a couple of my close friends know. But y'know, now that my PMS is over, everything is bright and shiny again!
I went for a Thai massage a couple of days earlier. Thann Sanctuary at Gardens Mall is moving out to some place near OneWorld, the hotel at One Utama and they were having this massive sale. I've always wanted all those scented candles and all that girly stuff for my room, but my dad was afraid that I would burn the house down, so he wouldn't let me get any. But now that I'm halfway towards being all grown up, I think I can handle a couple of candles, right? Besides, they'll make my stuffy room smell soooo much better!
So anyway, KayKay, Ameera and I went into the shop for a look-see, and ended up buying quite a fair amount of things! I got a candle holder. :D
Now all I need are candles and those nice smelling oils. Yum.
Since KayKay has been complaining about aches in her body, I thought why not just surprise her with a massage, especially since she's so fascinated with Harnn & Thann and they were having some moving out promotion. Rm280 for a two pax 90 minutes massage! I might not be the kind of person who goes for lots and lots of massage, but even I could tell that it was a good deal.
So I got it. Heeeee.
I've never gone for a full body massage before because one, I wasn't brought up that way and two, I thought having people touch me in those places would be weird. And it was!
But oh wow, the masseuse I had was damn ganas, she pressed and kneaded me like I was her personal stress ball that she had some sort of vendetta against. I wanted to protest but she was really trying to get the tension knots out of my shoulders and it worked! So I guess it's a good thing that I toughed it out. Plus, I didn't want to look like a pussy, giving up at the slightest hint of pain.
KayKay had a massage in the same room as I did, and the stupid thing was, before we went in, I asked her if we could actually talk during the massage because, hey, I like talking. Then when we went in, halfway through the massage, our conversation lulled and never picked back up. The reason? I thought she was sleeping and she thought I was sleeping! Haha! Then just like that, we continued on our massage in silence.
Towards the end of the massage, I really had to pee. And my masseuse was already massaging around my front, around my tummy and on my pelvis. And like I said, she wasn't the gentle-est of masseuses. And every time she massaged down to my bladder area, I'd be screaming in my head "OMG stopppp I really need to peeeeeee."
But aside from that incident, I kinda liked it. Of course, initially it's kind of awkward cuz a person you've just met 5 minutes ago is now touching your ass, but once you get over that part, it's really quite a pleasant experience. I wouldn't mind going for a massage again, just not any time soon because I actually don't do much physical work so my body's not aching for massages all the time.
