Fish Spa

by

I read an article on Yahoo a couple month ago about using some fish in the spa business. It’s pretty cool idea, but it’s kind of sick too. Last night Matthew (he’s currently working for his sister’s nail and spa business in Mobile) came by and asked if I have seen any Fish Spa before. I told him that I read about it, but I have never seen any picture or video clip. So, we looked it up on YouTube. It was freaky….

They (dermatologists) claimed that it’s safe for doing that, but the business owners might need to make sure the water is clean. Fish will nibble your dead skin as their food. OK? People have been eating fish too much, now it’s their turn???

Fish Spa

The process is fairly simple. Most of spas will use fish to do the pedicure and manicure for clients. They will wash customer’s feet/hands first and let them enjoy the fish by stepping in to the pool or tub. Hundreds of fish will jump on you and eat your skin out! hahahaha… :-D

Beijing or Peking?

by

Do you know where Beijing is located in China? Do you know where Peking is located in China? I got confused by both city names. Do you have any idea that these two cities are the same city. Both name, Beijing and Peking, are alternatively used. Based on Wikipedia, Beijing is one f the four great ancient capitals of China located in north. Beijing has been known in English as Peking.

Now, I know my mom just visited Beijing where the Olympic 2008 will be held!! Duhh!! :oops:

There are so many cool looking buildings in Beijing. On the Yahoo’s News photo, I saw the new China Central Television HQ building. It is very awesome looking.

Russian Market in Peking, China

by

One of our neighbor (in Bangkok) sent her daughter to Peking to study Chinese, and she asked my mom if she wanted to go with her. My mom has never visited Peking, so she decided to go. She just flew back home last night and she called me to let me know she safely arrived home. We did talked briefly about her trip.

I asked her about Peking…”what did it look like?”

She said.. “Oh My God… Peking is just another big city like Bangkok, New York, etc. There were a lot of skyscrapers, traffics, crowds, etc.”

“Did you go shopping a lot?”, I asked.

“Yes”, she replied. She added that everything was so cheap like you wouldn’t believe. She did briefly mentioned about “Russian Market.”

“Wait a minute… I thought you went to China.”, I asked.

“No… this Russian market is in Peking… I’m not sure why they called that”, she replied with laughs.

She bought several coats, jackets, pajamas, and couple Coach handbags. She said that Russian market was crazy. Once you got it, they would locked you down and wouldn’t let you go until you made a purchase.

I’m thinking in my head.. hmm.. that sounds like Russian (being locked down in the country — no offense.. you know what I mean? But, that’s just my thought).

Yabalu (Russian Market) :
The Russian Market is on the west wide of Ritan Park (Temple of the Sun Park). This is where you’ll find fur coats, clothing, hats, bras, toys, bathing suits, and more “stuff” than you can imagine — all destined for Russia in bulk quantities. – journeywoman.com

She had a good time with bargaining the price. There was one shop that she bargained from 1,000 Chinese dollars down to only “3 Chinese dollars.” Yes.. that’s the correct number — it’s only one digit price! She was amazed that the lady would sell a nice coat for that price.

I’m glad that she had a good time. I’m sorry that she missed me and my sister since we hadn’t talked for 9 days. I missed her too! Now, Peking has just been added to my wish list. :mrgreen:

Good Deal from Macy.com

by

If you are looking for a food processor and blender, here is the best deal. I just ordered Cuisinart SmartPower Duet Chrome Food Processor/Blender from Macy for only 42 dollars something including shipping and tax!!

Cuisinart SmartPower Duet

Come on… you cannot beat this price. The regular price was $115.00 but listed sale price is $89.99. If you add this item to the cart, it will bring the price down to $60 something. And then apply the coupon code TESTSITE, it will also bring the price down to $42 something. What a deal! I’m not sure how long this deal is going to last. The bad part is you have to wait for 35 business days to receive it.

I just want to share this deal with you. Good luck!

Skype Me

by

Philips Skype Phone (No need PC connection)

ช่วงหลังๆ โทรกลับเมืองไทยมีปัญหาบ่อยมาก บ้างก็โทรแล้วสายไม่ติด บ้างก็โทรแล้วฝั่งโน้นก็ได้ยินไม่ชัด แต่กอล์ฟมีเพื่อนใช้ Skype โทรมาจากเมืองไทย เห็นใช้มาหลายปีแล้ว ไม่เคยบ่น ไม่เคยมีปัญหา แต่ก่อนก็คิดจะใช้ แต่ราคาโทรออกจาก USA ยังแพงกว่าบัตรโทรศัพท์เท่าตัว ก็เลยไม่ได้ใช้ วันก่อนแวะเข้าไปดูเว็บไซท์ SKYPE ก็แปลกใจ เพราะว่า ราคาได้เปลี่ยนไปแล้ว ตอนนี้ โทรเข้ากรุงเทพ 7 เซนต์ โทรเข้ามือถือ 13 เซนต์ โทรเข้าตจว. 13 เซนต์เช่นกัน ถือว่าโอเคเลยนะเนี่ย

ยังไงถ้าใครอยุ่เมืองนอกใช้บัตรโทรศัพท์ ก็น่าจะลองมาใช้ skype ดูนะ

กอล์ฟพึ่งสั่งซื้อ Skype โทรศัพท์ ยี่ห้อ Philips ราคา 125 เหรียญ ข้อดีคือไม่ต้องต่อเข้าเครื่องคอมพิวเตอร์ สามารถรับโทรศัพท์จาก Mainline ได้อีกด้วย

Starting All Over

by

Is it better to start all over or keep pushing it? I’m talking about my dissertation. That’s right… I have puased my dissertation way too long. It’s hard to revisit what I’ve left of. It might be better off to start fresh, and I hope I’m making the right decision Ha ha.

The new research area which I will be working on is the comparison of 2D and 3D graphs – to investigate which one is more effective. Does embollishment play a role in graphical presentation?

I’m not looking for the most significant research study. I guess this topic will do for me.. hahaha. And, I hope I can keep it going. I don’t have much time left and I really really want to graduate!

Hail in Mobile

by

วันนี้ฝนตกหนักมากๆ น่ากลัวสุด ไฟกระพริบอยู่หลายที กอล์ฟก็เลยเดินไปในครัว มองออกไปข้างนอกที่ Deck แล้วก็สังเกตเห็นก้อนอะไรไม่รู้กลมๆ กระเด้งไป กระเด้งมา ตอนแรกนึกว่าเป็นพวกแมลง แต่พอจ้องและดูอีกที มันเป็นก้อนน้ำแข็งนี่เอง ก้อนน้ำแข็งไซส์ขนาดและรูปร่าง ลักษณะเดียวกับน้ำแข็งที่กดออกมาจากตู้เย็นเวลามัน Crush แตกเป็นน้ำแข็งเม็ด

ตื่นเต้นๆ ไม่เคยเห็นมาก่อน เคยได้ยินแต่ไม่เคยได้สัมผัส กอล์ฟก็เลยเดินไปเก็บก้อนที่มันกระเด็นมาใกล้ประตูหลังบ้าน เสียดายไม่ได้ถ่ายรูปแหะ ซักพัก เพื่อนแถวบ้านโทรมาคุยด้วย แต่เขาอยู่ที่ทำงาน เลยไม่รู้ว่ามีลูกเห็บตกอยู่แถวบ้านก็เลยเล่าให้เขาฟัง เขาบอกว่า ระวังนะ ส่วนใหญ่เวลาเห็บตกเนี่ยมันมากับ Tornado อ้าวววว อ้าววว อ้าววว เสียวเลยเนี่ย แต่โชคดีเนื่องจากฝนตกหนัก ลมแรง มันก็เลยพาฝนไปเร็ว ซํกครึ่งชม. ฟ้าก็สว่าง เฮ้อออ นึกกลัว ทอเนโดอยู่เหมือนกันนะเนี่ย
