After the traumatic experience visiting Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, we went for karaoke after dinner, all paid for by a friend in Phnom Penh. I felt a bit excited as this was my first ever karaoke session outside the country. We were led to a room, or rather a suite! We sat down on cozy sofa and a row of young and beautiful lining up in front of us. I did not want to, but had to pick the one which I thought was the most charming among all. It seemed to me this place is a night club. Another first for me on that night, believe it or not, your truly have never been to a night club before!
Despite our host of the night kept telling us that we could do, talk and touch as we like, I barely touched her whole night. We just chit chatted about her family and her life and drank beer. Occasionally she gave me a big cheer after I sang a song. I did enjoy myself a lot, helping myself to the snacks on the table.
After the karaoke session, our friend sent us back to our hotel in Phnom Penh. We stayed in Asia Hotel while in Phnom Penh, also all paid for by our friend. A big thank to him for making our Cambodia holidays, Phnom Penh particularly such a wonderful one! We reached our hotel lobby at approximately 2300. After discussion with my 2 other traveling partners, we decided to go for in room massage. We had massage almost every night in Siem Reap prior to coming to Phnom Penh. Massage in Cambodia is damn cheap, even cheaper than in Thailand. We relayed the request to receptionist at the lobby before we went up to our room.
Door bell rang after around 15 minutes. I rushed to open the door. In came a massage lady, rather short and plumpy one. She gave me a puzzled look when she saw 3 of us in 1 room, and then giggled out loud! I wondered why these massage ladies did not come at 1 time. We let my friend had the first one, very nice of us, haha! The second lady came a few minutes later, a rather nice looking one. Foong moved quickly to secure her service, meaning I would have to wait for my turn! I asked where another lady was. The reply was on the way. She did eventually arrive not long after.
On the bed, I could not feel the pressure of both her hands and fingers. That was not massage. It was more like pinching softly with her fingers on my back. I could not stand any longer and asked her to stop. With firm voice, I requested her to massage properly. To my surprise, she could not understand English. Her 2 friends had to do the translation. She was not happy looking at her facial expression. She asked me to lie down once more. This time she pressed really hard. I felt painful on my back. At that point I realized that she do not know how to massage. I got up for the second time, told her off, paid her off and asked all 3 of them to leave our room!
Foong and my friend told me they had a torrid time as well because none of their ladies know how to massage. Apparently, they are prostitutes! They came for sex service, not massage! No wonder the first lady gave me a funny look and giggled out loud when coming in! The story did not end there. After the ladies left our room for about 10 minutes, the receptionist called up to find out whether we were happy about the service. Apparently, he was trying to ask for tips! My friend told him off over the phone. We are decent customers, how could the receptionist send us 3 prostitutes! This must be one of the most unforgettable experience in our Cambodia holiday!
Did you have similar experience? What do you think, can massage be considered as sex service?
