Gemma has been off school this week, so I asked our ayi (domestic helper) to work 4 hours a day in hopes that I could get a little one on one time with Miss Gemma. Today we headed to a place across from the U.S. Consulate called Silk Tone to get our first manicure. I had heard it was cheap, so I told my girly girl that she could have her nails done too. We were very happy to see that they painted her fingers and toes for a cool dollar. That's right 1 US dollar! I was ecstatic! While I was getting my nails done and they were working on Gemma's toes, I thought to myself: Am I raising a high maintenance girl? Anyone that knows me knows I am a minimalist regarding my physical appearance, so where did this child come from??? Oh well, she might as well enjoy the manicures while they last.
My Chengdu of the day is do get a manicure every other day while you are in Chengdu! For a $1 who can beat it!
My Chengdon't of the day is don't be clean freak while at the manicure place; you get what you paid for!
