Green Eggs (No Ham)

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of October! I was long overdue for my recurring massage, which I usually get at the beginning of every month.

I had a Living Social deal for 50% off an Hour Long Massage at Thai Sabai in Hollywood. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Thai massage, it involves a lot of guided stretching, being stood on…it’s more “work” than a “normal” straight-up relaxing one.

When I first moved to L.A. I used to go here a lot, but have since found other massage places that are much more pampering for the same price. Thai Sabai is less private, a little rushed (my masseuse was a bit gruff and disconnected) and I don’t like that it’s on the floor instead of a table (where my face is smooshed into a pillow, rather thanย supported in a head rest).


Still, you get to wear that cute little outfit! And with the Living Social deal, the whole thing cost about $30, with tip. For that price, I’ll just suck up the lack of privacy/comfort and shower off all the cheap baby oil they slather on.


That’s exactly what I did the second I got home; then made myself an early dinner.

Scrambled up an egg (splash of water, s + p) with some scallions…


…and made a quick salad with organic baby spinach, frozen bell peppers/asparagus…


Tossed in the best Olive Oil and Vinegar combo ever – some Olinda Ridge Lemon EVOO (they sent a bunch of free samples) + Traditional Aceto Balsamico


Salad n Eggs


Somehow, they wound up in the same bowl. So typical of me.


Lately, my nausea has been kicking in at night. It’s a very particular kind of sick feeling, where I feel like I want to eat something but am not hungry, and crave very specific things.

Like just a smidge of Instant Oatmeal Bread


…mostly, I wanted to crunch on a pear.


And right before bed, something ice cold and refreshing. Frozen grapes were perfect.


If you’re in Philly (like my phamily) “The People I’ve Slept With” is closing the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival this Sunday night. Unfortunately, I’ll be presenting at the San Diego Asian Film Festival Gala so I can’t be there. But even if you can’t make the screening, the movie will be airing on TV starting this Sunday!!!

    I purchased that Thai Sabai livingsocial deal too! I haven’t used my coupon yet though. Did you like the massage? I think that thai massages are traditionally done on the ground so i don’t mind that it’s on the ground rather than a table like the massages we’re used to. Did they use a walker? Lol, my friend told me that at thai sabai sometimes they use walkers when they’re walking on your back.

    I have experienced a Thai Massage on a visit to LA- very different than what I was expecting.
    Do you know any of the Asian actors/actresses in Hawaii 5-0? We noticed they have some popular ones. I said “Lynn is my favorite Asian actress!!” ๐Ÿ™‚ And actually, my favorite actress period!

    What a deal on the massage. I actually kind of like a rougher massage…so this sounds wonderful to me ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m obsessed with scrambled eggs right now- delicious and protein packed!

    Ahh massages! I desperately need one right now. All these midterms right now and papers are super stressful. I really should be working on that right now….lol

    Those prices actually aren’t too bad, but it IS too bad that the service isn’t that great ๐Ÿ™ What a deal for $30 though!!! I’m curious why a child would need a massage though. My children are usually the reason for my massages…teehee.

    I love sprinkling a bit of Chinese Oyster Sauce on top of scrambled eggs, scallions, and peas.
    To me that massage sounded great–I must be a glutton for punishment.

    sorry to hear that you’re still feeling nauseous! I get nauseous quite frequently and it really sucks ๐Ÿ™
    for me, deep breathing sometimes helps, and so do mints, hot water, or having my boyfriend rub my tummy! Do you have any other tips?!
