I can’t believe that I started this blog in June 2007. This means this blog is now exactly 3 years old!
As of June 10 2010, I have posted 65 spa and massage reviews. An average of 22 reviews a year or 2 reviews a month! This is not counting places which I found too lousy to write a review or places where I have been too busy or lazy to follow up with a proper review. What a number of scrubs, massage and facials I must have gone for! What a lot of money I must have spent!
Really, it was all in good fun! Before I started this blog, there were many times when I have always said… ‘how I wished some-one had made an objective review so that I do not need to throw good money after a lousy spa’… well, I couldn’t find that some-one and so it became me…
And can you believe it that I went from a reader of 1 – myself – to an average of 500 readers a day after 3 years? It is a good feeling that I know 500 like-minded ‘spa friends’ are visiting me each day!
Along the way, I have made many friends. Spa owners, other spa reviewers, spa customers and even a couple of magazine editors. We have exchanged views, traded opinions and lamented at spa industry practices.
Most of all, I appreciate readers’ feedback, encouragement and suggestions.
More than a year ago, another reader and myself decided to collaborate on a couple of other websites. These are not spa reviews but rather, websites that collect and collate health and wellness articles – articles which has been written in simple and non-jargon language.
Just like my spa reviews, I like to keep a a catalog of personalised information tugged away for perpetual and repeated use. I like them neat, clear, organised and easily available.
Sarah and myself share that passion. We also believe that too much information and too much jargon can kill one’s enthusiasm for a subject. Just like my spa review, we decided to take matters into our own hand and organise our own library of useful information and knowledge.
Initially, we wanted to include these health and wellness articles into my spa review blog. We decided it would dilute my spa review direction and decided they should have their own website to keep the message clear.
Here’s a sample of articles for health-wellness-care:
|Vitamins and our Health|
|What is Diabetes?|
|What is Prostate Cancer?|
|What is Hepatitis C?|
|When Lymphoma strikes!|
|Sleeping Disorder (New)|
|Depression (New)and many more…|
These are day-to-day health issue articles written in clear, concise, layman language. Put it this way; these are everyday health issues you or I may encounter to ourselves, loved ones or friends. When we need these information, we want them to be easily available, easy to understand and easy to refer to seek further specialised help from that point onwards. I hope http://www.health-wellness-care.com can fulfill that task.
Here’s the sample for the beauty-fitness-secrets.com website:
|Nurturing Self confidence|
|Start a running regimen|
|Beauty Secrets Revealed|
|Skin care secrets|
|Sun Tan dangers!|
|Causes of Hair Loss|
|Let’s Do Pilates!and many more…|
As much as we go for massages and spas to rejuvenate ourselves, this is not enough. We need to exercise, eat well and follow certain skin and toning routines to keep us in good confidence and shape. These articles bring you the basics of fitness, food and beauty that will enable you to remain young, healthy and certainly beautiful in mind and body.

Thanks once again for your readership, feedback and encouragement. Keep your emails coming, in private or through the public comments.
I’m very keen to see if readership continue to grow because I am thinking of starting a discussion forum for spa and wellness in Asia once we reach a certain critical mass. Let me know if you want to encourage the start of a reader discussion forum.
Let’s see what else we can do in the next 3 years…
