An Expat Gets A Mani (and loses a toe or two)

Getting any kind of beauty treatment in Singapore can be a bit of a minefield.  There’s a lot to love, of course – snail slime facials from Korea, Traditonal Chinese Medicine massages that will cure anything that ails you, Thai foot massages that make time stand still as you float away on a cloud of bliss. But, there are also times when the culture shock hits hard. And somehow, whether you’re stuck in a violently vibrating massage chair, or standing awkwardly wearing nothing but a pair of disposable paper undies (backwards actually), these culture shock moments are all the more mortifying. 

And yet, we keep going back, buoyed by the love and tender support of our expat sisters
