MALAYSIA HAS BECOME MY HUB WHEN I AM IN SOUTH-EAST ASIA OR INDIA, THANKS MAINLY TO AIR ASIA WHICH IS BASED HERE. That said, I find accommodation a little on the expensive side, so I can't afford to stay long. If only the hotels were as cheap as the food, then I would spend a lot more time here!

MANY READERS OF THIS SITE ASK WHERE IS A GOOD PLACE TO GET A MASSAGE WHILE IN SINGAPORE. It is a fair question, and I am obliged to offer a fair answer. Other readers, meanwhile, ask where is a good place to relax at Changi -- and I mean really relax -- while others want to know where to work out. "Interestingly, the rooms have indicators pointing to Mecca, for the convenience of their Islamic clientele. There is also a small children・スE・スE・スE・スfs play area on the ground floor, but I've never seen any families at the transit hotel. It usually seems to be business travellers, and people are just trying to sleep. International flights are coming and going around the clock, so the hotel books blocks of six hours at a time, which can be extended by the hour. It・スE・スE・スE・スfs about US$35 for a room.
"Use of the terminal 1 transit hotel gym, showers, and swimming pool are included in the room charge, but can also be purchased separately. The transit hotel gym has a fairly new Precor treadmill (was finally replaced this spring), a stationary cycle, and a few weight machines, and a rack of dumbbells. and little packets of soap (which are hard to open).
"The desk can also supply you with exercise clothes, although you still need to bring your own running shoes. Their gym has several nice treadmills, along with a newer weight machine, hand weights, and mats for yoga. They also have showers, nap rooms, oxygen therapy, and a lounge with snacks."

INDIAN MASSAGE IS BASICALLY AYURVEDHIC MASSAGE, THE ANCIENT PRACTICE OF THE SUB-CONTINENT WHICH IS NOW ENJOYING A POPULARITY BOOM IN SINGAPORE AND AROUND THE WORLD. As Indian Girl Massage has written: "Indian traditional massage practiced under ayurveda tradition for thousands of years. These massage are popular due to its uniqueness & rejuvenative power of healing.
"1) Improves blood circulation.
"2) Improves body flexibility & muscle tone.
"3) Helps to trim off and burn the excess & stubborn fat from the body.
"4) Tones up skin and encourages its renewal process.
"5) Mobilizes the digestive system and speeds up the elimination of waste products.
"6) Improves immunity to fight against infection and disease.
"7) Caring touch and massage soothe our nerves and decrease tension.
"8) Helping sleep problems.
"9) An effective aid to relaxation...

Ayurvedic massages are generally regarded as more luxurious and exotic than other massages as most use a synergistic combination of precious oils and carefully prepared herbal extracts. These are delicately and precisely created in laboratories in India by respected Vaidyas, and individually modified and mixed to get the perfect mix for YOU.

my encounter with a mad fundamental Christian preacher who also happened to work at the airport. It happened in the transit lounge.

Malaya Hotel: Level 6, Raffles (The Plaza), 2 Stamford Rd. Phone: 6336 4477. Email: . Website: Ancient's Best Clinic website here.

In May 2005 I had the opportunity to stay in the heart of KL's Chinatown, right in the center of the area's hectic night market, in the equally hectic Hotel Malaya. Within spitting distance of my hotel, on the sweltering streets outside, I could find: Chinese and Hindu temples, saturated with the excessive use of primary colors; hawkers clogging the pavements of Petaling St, selling wallets and counterfeit porn; the sundry smells of a dozen Asian cuisines; the cool subterranean innards of the Reggae Bar, where I dined on spicy Thai tom yum soup and declined offers to buy dope. Tiny tropical bats winged through the black night air, adding to the exotica. The muddy Klang River surged inside its concrete confines, testifying to the equatorial intensity of this place. I couldn't help but be overwhelmed by this display of vitality and chaos and life. Of course all of this, including the dope salesmen and porn peddlars, can be found be in any south-east Asian Chinatown these days. What marks Kuala Lumpur (KL) Chinatown apart from the crowd, is the fascinating architecture that surrounds this district, and the meangerie of races which make up the Malaysian Nation. All in all it kind of looks like Singapore in decay mode, but the vibe is much more authentic and more interesting. Rows of shophouses dating from the British Empire have been repainted Malay yellow and green, but they ooze a rotten essence nonetheless. High above, the not-so-vaguely Islamic influenced skyscrapers of modern Malaysia rise, adding to the cosmopolitan feel. But while KL and Malaysia alike aspire to become a new Singapore or a new Manhatten, they can't quite shake off the tropical rusticity. This is still a developing nation no matter what the politicians say, and there is an edge of pandemonium to visiting this place. In a way, that is what makes it so cool.

"The highest or ultimate goal of AYURVEDA & SIDDHA treatment is to attain absolute detachment of the 'Atman' or soul. This is the state of liberation or 'Moksham'. However for practical and commercial purposes this is hardly emphasized nor practiced. In Singapore at Ancient's Best, Clinic & Study Center of Ayurveda & Yoga, this is our Physician's primary emphasis. At the same instance, the body, mind and its equipment are not neglected but brought very much into focus and attention, as it is the only means of realizing the Self or Truth..."

Actually this photo was taken in Chinatown and not the Little India district of Kuala Lumpur, but you get the idea...

THE FIRST AUTHENTIC ASIAN MASSAGE I EVER SUBMITTED MYSELF PROSTRATE TO, HAPPENED WHEN I WAS HANGING WITH MY INDONESIAN FRIEND HOTMAN ON THE RIAU ISLANDS, IN THE SUPER STRATEGIC STRAITS OF MALACCA NEAR SINGAPORE, BACK AT THE END OF 2000. Hotman was a Batak journalist in Jakarta but cultivated dreams of opening a karaoke bar in Nagoya (not the Japanese Nagoya, but the Indonesian Nagoya on Batam Island.) I don't know how the scheme panned out, but I do know he was big on massage, and he was intending to include a massage facility in his complex. Across the busy Straits, Singaporeans are likewise wising up, to the benefits of Indonesian massage. Given that Singapore sits only miles from the Riau Islands and beyond that, over the bustling seas, the vast and sprawling Indonesian archipelago, it is not surprising. According to My Beauty Guru, "Traditional Indonesian Massage is an ancient system of healing which relies upon deep pressure massage to break down tensely knotted tissue as well as long strokes and skin rolling to relieve tension and improve circulation.

"This is a therapy where pushing techniques predominate, working very deeply to ease muscle and joint pain. The oil is worked into the body using long sensual strokes spanning the length of the muscle to relieve tension. After the initial strokes are completed the sequence is finished with upwards strokes towards the heart. The skin is also rolled between the thumb and the forefinger to awaken nerve endings and increase blood flow. Circular thumb movements are used for the same purpose. Pressure points on the hands and feet are also massaged to relax the body.

"If you are feeling stiff or suffering from pain, a traditional Indonesian Massage is highly recommended. An hour session of this massage is enough to leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed, rejuvenated and re-energised."

Some places offering Indonesian massage in Singapore include:

House of Traditional Javanese Massage: Branches on East Coast Rd, Jalan Jurong Kechil, Devonshire Rd and Upper Thompson Rd. Website: House of Traditional Javanese Massage website here.

Open every day except Hari Raya Puasa and Hari Raya Haji, the House of Traditional Javanese Massage offers a full body massage and a ginger herb rub. According to the House, "Fresh ginger is traditionally used in Javanese healing treatments - it is believed to moisturize, stimulate circulation and impart warmth to the body. Watch out for some real heat but leave feeling better than believed possible."
The House of Traditional Javanese Massage is famous for its ginger rub, but that is not the only treatment available. Also of interest is the Pre and Post Natal Massage utilising a little piece of Indonesian technology called the bengkung. "The bengkung is a long abdominal sash that is bound tightly round the abdomen and hip areas and is believed to help rid of the body excess wind, restore muscle tone, flush toxins and strengthen the new mother. It is also said to stimulate the body's lymphatic system thus quickening the process by which the mother shed the extra weight put on during her pregnancy..."
Some of the other treatments at the House of Traditional Javanese Massage include the Mandi Susu (Milk Bath), the Yoghurt and Honey Rub and the Mandi Lulur body scrub.

Indonesian Herbal Massage and Spa: Located at the junction of Frankel Ave and Changi Rd, in close reach of the Kembangan MRT station. Phone: 6449 6900. Email: Email : admin@indonesianherbalspa.com. Website: Indonesian Massage and Spa website here.

This "relatively new" spa off Changi Rd offers treatments such as the intimacy care for women, and the tongkat ali scrub for men. There is a secondary branch of Indonesian Massage and Soa located inside my latest new favorite place in Singapore: the Parkway Parade department store (shop #01-70, 80 Marine Pde Rd; phone: 6344 9558.)

Wayan Retreat Balinese Spa: 61 Bussorah Mall. Website: House of Traditional Javanese Massage website here.

With its resort-like Indonesian decor, this place is a strictly womens only retreat. And the treatments here include the aforementioned lulur (a scrub using powdered rice and Indonesian spices), or the Balinese Urut, in which long kneading strokes are believed to renew and strengthen the body and mind (or should I have said, the mind and body???)

MY FIRST SINGAPOREAN VISIT WAS INDEED FLEETING -- and, according to official definitions, not a real visit, because I didn't leave the airport. However, it justifies as a tourist attraction in itself. It is worth going to Singapore Airport, just to see the airport! This might sound strange.

The spa delineates separate routes, leading to the treatment rooms to ensure that males and females patrons are accorded the strictest privacy.

Kenko Wellness Spa.

Lonely Planet calls this the McDonald's of massage in Singapore -- not because of its quality, but because they have franchises all over the place. Of course, many consider Lonely Planet to be the McDonald's of the travel guidebook market, so it's word should be taken with more than a dash of salt. On the official website they say: "KENKO chain of Foot Reflexology Centres and Wellness Spas is founded by our Principal, Dr Jimi Tan. Dr Tan has more than 15 years of experience in the Foot Reflexology and Wellness Spa industry, and is skillfully trained in Chinese and American techniques of reflexology. He has also developed his very own style of therapeutic massages and treatments for a quick and effective relief from migraine, back and neck problems.
"Mr Tan's services are highly sought after by both local and international celebrities and the well-heeled in Singapore. He has been invited by the Royal Families of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, as well as the former Prime Minister of Japan, Mr. Ryutaro Hashimoto, to provide massage treatments..."
Just like the Golden Arches, there are Kenko Wellness Spa's scattered across Singapore. There is one in the Esplanade Mall (8 Raffles Ave). As Nemesis wrote: "A couple of months back, I was at Esplande Mall and saw this Kenko Wellness Spa. As I was walking around aimlessly then, I decided to go for a spa and have a good relaxation.
"The body scrub and back mask helped to have a full back exfoliation and a deep cleansing effect, while the back massage served to ease off those tensed back muscles. Lastly, the whole session was finished off with a nice milk and flower bath with fruits and teas served for you to enjoy while soaking in the nice jacuzzi tub.
"The whole experience was quite nice, with the therapists giving me a very smoothing and nice massage with just the right amount of pressure applied. I almost fell asleep during the massage as It was just too comfortable.
"Overall, I would say that the package was nice, though it was a bit costly. But, there are always special promotions for usage of certain credit cards and you can check out the website for the updated promotion details..."

Rapellez: Orchard Rd (Cuppage Plaza #B1-13 to 18, 5 Koek Road); Tel: +65 6736 0567. Upper Thomson (228 & 228A Upper Thomson Road); Tel: +65 6556 0567. East Coast (709A East Coast Road); Tel: +65 6443 0567. Website: Rapellez website here.

I was walking down Orchard Rd in bright sunny Singapore last week (April 2008), taking in the bright scenery, when a girl handed me a flyer advertising Rapellez. As the flyer reproduced on the right claims, Rapellez offers free consultation, free skin analysis, and free fat analysis. Treatments cost as little as $28 for 45 minutes. I was intriqued by the advertised red wine spa massage, wondering what all that was about. It turns out that as well being a great antioxidant inside the body, red wine also applies itself well, to being applied on the outside. Over at Body Contours, red wine is only one of a number of substances used to enhance the massage experience. For a herbal high fanatic like myself, many of these substances are like old friends: they include green tea, Balinese coffee, and Javanese boreh. Hey, if it is good for you on the inside, it must be good on the outside too, the skin being the largest organ in the human body, after all. As a matter of fact, Body Contours lays claim to being "Singapore's first and only pioneering Winergy® Infusions treatment spa. A signature treatment, Winergy® Infusions is inspired from the words Wine and Energy with the concept that red wine acts as a source of therapeutic energy."

Wan Yang: 14 locations around Singapore. Full store list here.

If Kenko is the McDonald's of Singapore massage, as Lonely Planet claims, then Wan Yang must be the Burger King. Of feet. This is the only place in Singapore where you can earn LinkPoints for foot reflexology! Here is a review by a native Singaporean who nows calls Japan home: "I brought some Japanese Yen to be deposited into my DBS account, so I wanna changed them into Sing Dollars. The most convenient place to do that is in Suntec, where the money changer gives the best rates (as far as I know) and the bank is just around the corner.. the rate I got was okay, SGD1.29 for 100yen.. after changing the money, I still have some time left, so I went for my foot reflexology at one of the Wan Yang outlets in Suntec.. Aaaa.. it was truly a relaxing indulgence.. then I went to Carrefour hoping to buy a pair of slippers to be used in the hostel later.. didn’t find any that I liked.. so instead I bought a packet of Milo and some Mars bars.. went to Sports Shop and paid 29.90 for a pair of comfortable slippers.. reached the hostel around 1.30pm.. "
BlueColander said: "Anyways after BC, Tini treated me to Wan Yang Foot Reflexology at the Concourse. It's been ages since I've had foot reflexology so it was excruciating but good! After that we strolled to Amirah's Grill for hummus dip which Tini was craving, washing it down with some refreshing but sweet mint tea. Since we were in the Arab st area, I took the opportunity to check out the little boutiques again - Tini said the Haji Lane strip reminded her of Chapel St, Melbourne..."

Spa Esprit

According to Best Place Explorer: "Four feisty females got together with an idea for a haven where people (like them) could escape to when the stress of life made them want to wail and bail!
"And so, Spa Esprit was formed in 1996. It kicked off the holistic day spa industry in the ever-evolving society of Singapore. In 1996, Spa Esprit started its holistic exploits in the heart of Holland Village -- the one locale in Singapore which can be likened to Greenwich Village in New York or Notting Hill in London. The first extra-ordinary treat which appeared on the menu was the ever-muscle-numbing Hot Stones Massage. Psst -- let's share a secret with you, one of the sassy gals who started off Spa Esprit actually trudged all the way to New York to learn this uber-delish treat! Back then in 1996, Spa Esprit was the first to bring the Hot Stones Massage to the day spa shores in Singapore.
"Like no other, Spa Esprit has evolved through the years, always bringing a new, chic, meaningful and simply fabulous treatment for their clients to enjoy. Combining a coupled approach to health and beauty Spa Esprit has since introduced (always) unique treatments to all Day Spa Lovers out there -- we are simply obliged to introduce to you treatments like the Mud Stones Massage, Cheeky Chai Detox, Strawberry Butter Meltdown, Water Diva Facials, Crystal Tonic Facials and other treats like Chavutti Yogic Massage and the ever growing Herbal Lab retail section which are fully endorsed by Naturopaths and Herbalists!"

According to the website: "We are Singapore''s first wine-themed spa founded on the principles of vinotherapy. While vinotherapy uses grape seeds, grape seed oil, skins and stalks which are rich in antioxidants in massages and treatments to pamper and nourish the skin and body, we incorporate the use of selected wine in our massage oils to impart similar benefits.
"Besides the wine-based massages and treatments, we also offer a complete range of treatments to pamper your body from head to toe. Our Spa Consultants are always on hand to advise and treatments can be customised to suit your preferences..."
