Still Waiting


Waiting for my very own bathtub can get very daunting sometimes. You might think I'm a little nuts for wanting and longing for a bathtub of my own but that's how it is when you don't have something that you really love. The yearning, the wondering and the wait is something you go through on a daily occurrence. I see my shower inside my bathroom and then I look at all the beautiful scent-sational
Lush bath products sitting on my dresser and a sigh involuntarily escapes; wistfully wishing for a huge bathtub to soak all my worries and stress away.

On my last visit to Tokyo, we stayed in two different hotels, one in Shinjuku and another in Roppongi. When I first entered the hotel suite in Shinjuku, the first thing I checked was the bathroom for I could not wait to luxuriate in a spacious bathtub. I was however shocked into silence at the size of the compact bathtub waiting for me inside! Smiley

So shocked was I that I totally forgot to take pictures of the extremely tiny bathroom and the very compact bathtub the Japanese managed to squeeze inside such a tiny suite. I think the bathroom size is even smaller than my current bathroom at home! Smiley

Anyway, after 3 days of staying in the Shinjuku hotel, I never once took a bubble bath simply because the tub was too small to really enjoy a good bath, know what I mean? So even though I know now that it is possible to install a tiny compact bathtub inside my not-so-big bathroom at home, I told B that it's best to wait until we move into a bigger home with a bigger bathroom suite prior to installing our own bathtub.

And when that time comes, I know just where to go to get ideas on designs and furniture for my new bathroom - Better Bathrooms! Currently offering a massive year-end deal of the month on all Bathroom Suites, Better Bathrooms take complete pride in providing homes with Better Prices and Better Deals.


This right hand L-shaped shower bath Suite Deal for instance, comes with a Plaza WC and Basin with Pedestal. Also included in this deal are the Form Basin Mixer and Form Bath Shower Mixer. A brand new contemporary designer style guaranteed to look stunning in any bathroom; I think the best part of this whole deal is the awesome discount you will enjoy when you make your purchase before the New Year. Retail price is £699 but Better Bathroom is giving you a good reason to shop and save with a reduced price of only £499.95! Smiley

Happy shopping everybody and Merry Christmas to all my friends and readers celebrating this joyous holiday! Smiley

I've heard all kinds of stories about the compactness of living quarters in Tokyo. I remember seeing a program on the travel channel once that showed a hotel where you paid by the hour and got to sleep in a sort of coffin like thing that got shoved into the wall. For someone who does not like close spaces, I don't think I could survive.

Hey Gargantua! Oooooooh I remember watching something similar on TV too, perhaps the same show! Well, the first hotel was really compact so not much room for us but the second hotel in Roppongi was superb! The room was spacious and the bathroom oh so big! So I had fun at my second hotel yay! :* :* :* :*
