I also hit the beauty parlour where I was massaged, had my toenails coiffed and painted a bright red, and my underarms were waxed. The beauticians kept calling them 'armpits' having no idea that women in the West think that word is a bit too vulgar sounding, nonetheless, they were very comforting and wayyy cute. They were amazed at how soft and white my 'armpits' were.
Asian women are hilarious and obsessed with whitening products, even deodorants have it. Funny thing is, many men (the whitening product conversation is very common as it is hard to ignored all the products and adverts) always tell me, "We don't get it either, the underarms is the last place we look!" It is also funny to see the Loreal adverts with Beyonce where they have completely lightened her complexion. You only know it is her, because you regconize the ads from the states.
One thing that I missed was the Sultan's Palace, Istana Nurul Iman. The Istana is open to the public only at the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. I was there during Hari Raya (the celebration day when Ramadan finishes). The Sultan and his wife greet their guests, serve celebration food, and hand out presents. Thanks! swine flu!!!!! All this way from Texas, and no Sultan!
feels pretty natural
Infinity for sure!
