…Friday is Saturday, Saturday is Sunday and Sunday is Monday – so technically today is the first working day of the week – but it doesn’t feel it …
The weather here is quite depressing – warm but with no sunshine and tomorrow there may be rain. Very un-Dubai methinks.
So – up early to play tennis with my dear friend Bernardo. He outplayed, outclassed and outgunned me in every way on the court – my excuses? – well he is younger, fitter, better looking, talented and most importantly wears better tennis shoes. The last point made all the difference … ! We are on court again tomorrow morning (weather dependent).
THEN after a lovely dosa breakfast, I headed to the Spa for pain & pleasure.
Pain – 40 minutes of cycling with a difference. The bike is enclosed in a jacuzzi – and I “burnt” 700 calories in the allotted time. My legs felt like (India) rubber when I eventually escaped the “box”.
Pain – It’s 8 days since the intense heat of Langkawi. As you know, I burnt quite severely there – and I have been peeling ever since. Well, today I “enjoyed” an all-over body exfoliation … and I now feel at least a pound lighter and I have even gone a shade of Piglette pink!
Pain – 60 minutes of “Thai table massage” – every muscle were stretched and all my bones pulled … it was gruelling
Pleasure – now – the afterglow of happy skin and even happier muscles & bones …
No pain – no pleasure! My therapist was Cherry and if ever you head this way, SHE is the “one”!
Dinner at Qbara – the new trendy Lebanese with a Western twist – very nice indeed.
Okay – postcards to write …
