Set back from the main road and with plenty of promise from the name ‘happy times’ I set off towards it.
As I got closer to the massage shop the statue of what resembled one of the semi-mythical courtesans of Indian myth, a good sign I decide. If nothing else they have a good taste in statues.
The counter-sign being a grim-looking Thai woman sat outside. She notices me walking up and stops eating her bowel of noodles.
As she walks in I get told, in no uncertain terms, to remove my footware. This is a first and I take it they like their hygience, a tick in the box for them on that one. The Mamasan’s attitude isn’t that friendly though, not someone to mess around.
Inside it’s got nice plush red carpet, making thoughts of more suggestive doings all the while. The Chinese Shrine that’s facing you shows the owners beliefs, and possibly that prosperity and profit may be not be far away.
I ask for a 1 hour oil massage and hard-face growls into a kitchen area calling out the name ‘Nit’.
An attractive Thai woman walks out, I take her in and like what I see. Raven-haired, longer than average hair, nicely formed body that’s just the right mix of slender and curves and a pretty enough face.
I need no showing to go up the stairs, the downstairs area being for foot massage only save a single massage bed for overspill customers.
There are two areas upstairs, one for Thai massage and one for oil massage which are clearly stenciled onto glass doors.
Inside the oil massage area there’s about three separate booths, all divided by three-quarter walls (not quite up to the ceiling) and solid sliding doors.
Inside the first room it’s spartan, but clean and basic. A floor mattress (thin) for massage and a single aircon blasting directly into the room, keeping it cool, but not freezing.
A towel was on the mattress and a took off my clothes and donned it, before assuming the lying down position.
One wall facing me was nice pretty picture of a Thai woman on the beach, the soft touche brightened up the stark room no end.
‘Nit’ walks in and straight away I can tell she knows her way around. I conversed with her as she prepared. In her late twenty’s and had only been in Bangkok for the past 3 months.
Before starting she asked me ‘soft, medium or hard.’ Plus points for that, giving the client the option is always nice.
Her cute soft, hands weaved their magic on my back and it felt pretty good, better than the last place I’d reviewed and I relaxed into a bliss of relief.
She briefly hassled me for extra’s, but, like Thai House Massage she wanted crazy money, so that was a no-no for me.
After she was finished it was time for a shower. This massage parlour, does not have integrated showers, just the one shower. This isn’t a problem when there’s only one person being massaged but I can see it being quite a queue if it gets busy.
Inside the shower is decent quality and the shower hose blasts out hot water (make sure you grab the right one, as one is for cold).
Downstairs it was farewells and payment. Although the sign on the video footage shows 350 baht there is a discount going on here and it only cost me 300 baht which I paid, plus a little tip for the pretty lady.
