"Treasure" In a Paint Can

Last weekend, decided to paint one of the rooms in my house. It was the second time painting a room. Bought a 5 liter Matex Gold Nippon paint from ACE hardware shop. 

After 3 hours of painting, the room was almost completed. After pouring the last drop from the paint to the painting tray, discovered a piece of plastic with metals in it. There was no clue of what could be inside and the reason it was inside the paint can. Could it be that it was placed inside to ease the mixing of the paint when we shake it? 

The plastic was all white and there was no way of knowing what was inside unless was is opened. Out of pure curiosity, opened with my bare hands. To my surprise, it contained some treasure. It was 6 pieces of 50 cents coin. 

After being in puzzled state for 10 minutes, discovered that there was a sticker on top of the paint can: Mystery gift inside. 

The gift was not so a mystery to me but it was mysterious as who on earth would thought of this idea!!!

Kingdom Foot Therapy

It has been a long time since the last time had a massage. Recently went for a massage at Sungai Long. The name of the massage center: Kingdom Foot Therapy.

The logo of the center from outside looks very nice. Once stepped into the center, was fascinated by the interior design. The ambient lighting and color used (red) make the place very cosy. The place was very clean too. You have to place your shoes outside the premise. The decors were very China like. Would have thought that just entered China if it wasn't for the shopkeeper who looked Malaysian. The rest of the masseuses were all China "Mui".

After baring all safe for a thin piece of shorts, laid on the massage platform. Got myself a full body massage. The masseuse has very strong fingers. From the massage, have learned how to massage the butt. Although the butt masage was very strange but incase anyone of your would like to know how strange it was, here is a tutorial on how to perform the butt massage.

1) First, have your “victim” lie on his/her abdomen

2) Use a finger, pressed into the center of one of a bun until you can feel the bone. Now don’t move the tip of your finger at all.

3) Then rotate your hand like a helicopter rotor while sticking your finger at the bone. Do it rigorously. Make 10 circle.

4) Then do a 10 chops on the bun.

5) Then repeat again for another bun.

Animation illustrates how the "helicopter" is done:

Easy right? Now, you just need to practice a few times before you are qualified to be professional butt massager. After this, the "victim" may feel that any chair becomes more cushiony. Even plastic chairs become soft when you sit on it.

Overall, the whole massage is very relaxing and not much pain is inflicted in the process of being massaged. Unlike previous experience at a Thai massage parlor whereby poor me have to keep on telling the masseuse “chep chep”, which means very, very, very pain in Thai. The pain lasted for 3 days.

Total relaxation time: 1.5 hours. How much poorer: RM64
