I've finally visited my favorite salon in Abu Dhabi to get a haircut. Let's just say that I do my visits on an annual basis, hahahaha, yes, you heard it right, because haircuts and treatments here in the UAE cost a fortune. I'm thankful that I'm low maintenance. When I go home for vacation, that's the time I get to pamper myself. What's ironic is when I was still a peso earner, I frequently pampered myself. It only means that salon charges in this part of the world are really expensive and I'm nagkukuripot (spendthrift)! Why not? I need to find a balance because I'm gastador (extravagant) in the more important things (this one's subjective, it depends on the mind of the spender). Buti na lang mura lang ang shampoo, conditioner, at suklay.
But seriously, there's something liberating about getting a haircut. Yung feeling na ang ganda ganda natin pagkalabas ng salon. Yun nga lang back to being not so pretty na uli the next day pag naliguan na yung buhok. Kase wala na ang magic ng blower. That's what you call "the morning after". That's why today, I didn't wet my hair while taking shower. Tutal nashampoo naman sya sa salon kagabi (defensive?). Parang ma-delay ang morning after. Hahahaha.
