Miss Puke Massage Shop
Inside Miss Puke Massage
From the outside Miss Puke's is somewhat 'mixed' in with three other massage shops. On the one side is Marble Massage and on the other is Assay Massage. This creates the effect of them all being one big massage complex. Yet they are all separate as far as I can tell. The name 'Miss Puke' conjur's up negative thoughts, yet in Thailand I figured that such stereotypes should be humoured, if only for research purpose...
Three Thai women were sat outside and I made what I reckoned was the best choice of the bunch, young 20s and fresh-faced. One of the other two was a Katoey, while inside there was one lounging about as well. The girl I picked was youthfully attractive but inexperienced as I was later to learn.
Inside it was clean. Dark grey speckled tiles gleamed. The cream walls had seen better days.
This being a mid-range massage shop I'm asked to put on flip-flops. Yet not before the massage girl has brought over a foot bath. I wash my feet in it. No water or tea is offered, but I ask and she brings some up with us to the next level. Here the teak decor comes out along with some old-school Thai massage booths.
Only one booth looks to be occupied and accordingly she heads over to the opposite end. The massage booths are divided by wicker curtains on the sides, the wall and a thick curtain at the entrance. A toilet (but no shower) is at the end of the room. There's another set of stairs going to the next floor. I'm guessing that's where the oil massage goes on. It's highly likely to be the same set-up as the first floor with no private shower or room.
I get changed into the massage pajama's and just have time to get some pictures of the booth before she's back again. Laying down the bed is quick thick, but not solid.
The massage itself from this one was fairly knowledgable and forthright initially, but inexperience soon drifted in.
On the spine she seemed to do ok, but several points were painful. I've not had this before so have to assume it's the shoddy technique of her. Perhaps she's used to obese farang who need over-excertion? Either way I was soon relishing the thought of the one-hour being up to leave Miss Puke's before any notion's of Miss Puke's namesake came about.
As the moment of the massage ending the girl's hand 'darted' out like a snake with the palm outstretched. Did she want some skin and a rasta handshake?
Downstairs a cashier had appeared (there wasn't one at the desk when I arrived), she was a fine looking Thai woman, better looking than any of the others. I paid the 300 baht bill to her. Some tea was waiting on a side-table and I took a seat next to it. My massage girl was smiling with fake notions of friendly vibes, but at least she'd made the tea, possibly as an overture about the tips.
As I left the door I gave her an ok tip. Not one I'd return to in a hurry.
