mineral spa

While getting “soaked” in the mineral spa pool, we all had an interesting chat about the symptoms of menopausal stage, how to clinch a boyfriend, beauty tips, family issues, sending money to the Philippines, and so on and so forth.

I was the youngest single lady (yes, you’ve read it right. youngest. :p ) so I can’t relate much with the menopausal topic. It did give me a scare though because I’ll be experiencing that in a few years time. Waaaah!

Although the pool looked a bit muddy because of the mineral contents, it did help ease my back pain.  Also, the hot tub area of the pool was a hit for the grannies. I admit I liked it too!

Time and money wise…it was worth the trip!  I was able to gain new friends, visit a new place and most of all, stay in the pool for four hours on the first day and two hours the next day. It certainly improved my social life, my blood circulation and relieved my body pain. Hence, I felt better when we went home. It was truly a relaxing weekend!

I was seated not far from the two ladies who were chatting happily (one lady was holding a bouquet of flowers and a card). As usual, I had an invisible bulwark set up around me as I prepare myself to take a “travel nap”.  My barricade was shattered when the lady holding the card animatedly asked her friend about something.  It’s loud enough for all of the passengers inside the bus to hear.

The conversation went this way:
Lady 1:  Do I look like 59?
(TheCuriousMe Note: Lady 1 was holding the bouquet of flowers while reading the card… It’s obviously her birthday.)

Lady 2:  No.
Lady 1:  Oh! Thank you!
(TheCuriousMe: She’s absolutely delighted with her friend’s answer because she flashed a bright smile! Oh boy! )

In my little corner, I nearly blurted out, “No, you look like you’re 70″. Good thing I controlled my mouth, I don’t want to burst her bubble. I don’t even know them. Bad me. :p Though my “travel nap” was boorishly  severed, I was still grinning mischievously. Darn! I must be going berserk. Am I making any sense?  This must be the effect of not having a restful sleep.

Until then! Mwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwa!
