There are times when we just run out of ideas of what to do for a gathering with some friends. It has always been the usual BBQ, eating sessions and karaoke. So this time round, I was thinking out of the box and suggested the 5 of us good friends go for a spa session together..it would certainly be fun!
It needs to be a nice spa that can accommodate the 5 of us in the pool and also in the sauna room. We settled down at Dragon Executive Spa along Tanjong Pagar Road after some beer at the pub nearby. There was a private lift access at the entrance of Amara shopping centre. We felt like VIPs as soon as we step in and greeted warmly by the staffs in their dark uniforms. The reception seems large a grand in receiving us on the front desk.
We selected our Therapeutic Massages for an hour each and got into our ready suit for the massage. In our individual rooms, we were further greeted with ready smiling masseuse. Mine was a China girl from Shenyang province, I got to find out that she was in her early 20s and began work only a month ago in Singapore. The massage session was a chatty one and she used the traditional technique on pounding on my back with both hands clasped. Its been a long time since I tried that style. Her way of kneading her knuckles into those tired soles were superbly skilled and I truly enjoy that foot reflexology by her. As her dripped some aromatherapy oil on my arms and rub hard, I felt that she could have been a little softer…but her high energy actually rubbed off my tiring arms’ fatigue.
My good friends and I met up at the sauna right on time as we completed our relaxing massage. The sauna was great with chats about our old University days. We ended the session with some coffee at the lounge before checking out of the spa centre. It felt really good and we are already planning for the next gathering at the spa…
