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 than 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…
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!!!
