Big Apple Spa, SM Mall of Asia

Its all in the timing. Imagine 3 hours of non-stop walking… a 30-minute budget massage can do wonders!

I never really tried a foot spa commercially since we have the machine at home. But since I was so tired from all the walking, my feet was screaming of a massage… I went for it. Nothing extraordinary, but since I know that my feet were in total damage control state, i felt happy as the masseur was scrubbing and cleaning them. The person next to me sat after 5-10mins i started, and yet she finished way ahead of me. Plus I got a feet massage which she didn’t get. The massage was great! So if only for that, i would come back…
