Life without a decent parlour is tough!!! There are certain things important in a girl's life... like tailor.. parlour occupies a similar position!!! To men : Dont worry i am not going to talk about the things we get done...
When i was in delhi, there was one right next door!! So the problem of locating a tailor / parlour didnt exist!!! My mom had already done the necessary scouting to identify the place!!
Then when i shifted to Bombay, i started to going to Shivaji Park.. which used to be painful as cabs wouldnt go for such short distance.. it was walkable.. but you know about 15 mins walk!! But i didnt really have an option... there were others where i used to live.. but they all looked extremely weird from the outside...
The thing with a parlour is.. you need to feel really comfortable to be able to go there!!!! It has to be hygenic (of course), spacious, bright.. there should be enough light streaming in.. the kind of people who are there (the visitors) also need to be a certain profile... and you need to be comfortable with their staff... there are so many things that go into choosing a parlour!!! Which is why i used to travel the distance!!
Here, in Blore, i again go slightly far.. takes about 15 mins by car.. thats because i have experience this chain of parlours.. and they are quite decent...
But today, one colleague who is also new to Blore told me there is one good one (which she has heard about) near our office itself.. so we went to check it out today.. it turned out to be fairly big sized decent parlour!!!!!!!!!
I am so thrilled i cant tell you.. at least i can run there in case of any emergency!!!! Also, post getting eyebrows done (sorry had to mention, story cant be complete otherwise)... this lady massaged my forehead / brows for more than 5 mins!!!!! Thats why i was so thrilled i think!!! But usually in any parlour they hardly take so much pain.. even if they do, the massage is quite fleeting.. by the time you realise that someone is massaging your brows, its already over!!!!
So i am quite thrilled!!!! Thrilled to bits!!!!
Tra la la la ... hop skip jump.. tra la la.... :)
ps: can someone tell me how can i do spell check on posts?
