Motorcycles and Massages
Last weekend I took the basic Motorcycle Riders Course at the Fort. That's a story for another time; suffice it to say I learned a lot - including what not to do!
The class consists of 4 hours' lecture, and 2 half-days of riding practice. Although bike riding wasn't physically demanding, by the end of the first practice day I was sore all over from all the exercise! Probably because I didn't stretch before the class started. Who knew?
As soon as class let out, John and I escaped to our favorite pampering place, The Spa. The Jupiter street branch is convenient for Ayala office workers and Makati residents, and avoids the need to brave stress-inducing traffic on your way to your relaxation zone.
Like its larger cousin in Acropolis, The Spa in Bel-Air has a steam room, hot and cold pools, and a spacious lounge. Our Swedish massages left us both feeling as good as new.
While sipping ginger tea in the lounge, I leafed through a lifestyle magazine and spotted a handful of intriguing places to try out:
I've added all three to my to-do list of places to go someday.
I also read that The Spa in Acropolis now has a couples' massage room - time for us to check it out!
For the Motorcycle Riders Course, call 550-1453 or 0917-460-2429, or visit their web site.

The Spa is located at 50 Jupiter street, Bel-Air, Makati. If you're on Makati Avenue coming from Ayala, turn right on Jupiter (in the direction of Gerry's and Krokodile Grill). The Spa is just past Kaya.
