An architect's first work is apt to be spare and clean. He knows
he doesn't know what he's doing, so he does it carefully and with great
As he designs the first work, frill after frill and embellishment
after embellishment occur to him. These get stored away to be used "next
time." Sooner or later the first system is finished, and the architect,
with firm confidence and a demonstrated mastery of that class of systems,
is ready to build a second system.
This second is the most dangerous system a man ever designs.
When he does his third and later ones, his prior experiences will
confirm each other as to the general characteristics of such systems,
and their differences will identify those parts of his experience that
are particular and not generalizable.
The general tendency is to over-design the second system, using
all the ideas and frills that were cautiously sidetracked on the first
one. The result, as Ovid says, is a "big pile."

Can anyone direct me to a place where you get a good body massage? How much would it cost ? My wife and I are used to getting a good Indian Ayurvedic Herbal massage on a regular basis to relax and are missing it.
you may wanna try here: Ming Xin or Xing Tian Di
Tang Nan road #98

I'm reviving an old post here--Same question.
Can anyone recommend a nice spa/massage place in Wuxi (as in body or foot massage, manicure/pedicure, or other teatment services)? A decent spa, you know, someplace you'd send your mother to. If you've been to a nice place lately, or know of one, I'd love to hear about it. Location, price, services... whatever you know would be helpful. Thanks!
Is the "Golden Bucket" or "Ming Xin" or "Xing Tian Di" still places you'd recommend?
1) "Tansy": they have 4 floors, 3rd floor for women spa, 4th floor for men spa. brand new fancy environment with professional workers. 2nd floor for haircut. here is their page: http://www.wxtz.cn/dmxx.htm. they used to be opossite of baoli, just moved to across street.
2) Grand ocean 5th floor: i don't remember the name that they say they are from switherland. only women spa though. very quiet with light music at their service area.
3) zu tian zu di: foot massage & body massage and some chinese treatment treatment. 2 stores, 1 is next to chuan guo yan yi sichuan restaurant. road is huai gu qiao. another store is around huishan, new one, never been there.
1st one, they will try to make you a member. you get a membership card beigining with 880RMB, then everytime you get go there, the service fee will be deducted from your card. when you use up all money in your card, you can charge it. i don't quite know the price for men's body massage, should be between 100-200RMB. they have some different types of massage like whole body, shoulder, back, facial something like that. actually i checked out their webpage, all pictures, address & map are still for old store. their new place is even much better. you should call them to find the new place. near VVS bar.
3rd one, normal foot massage costs 68RMB for 90min. they have thai body massage for 168 or 198rmb. and chinese body massage, i don't remember price.
I agree with Niels. The 20 RMB place behind Sheraton is decent place for cheap massage. Most foreigners that I bring in there go back for more. You can even get a decent haircut for 10 RMB. The place across from Sheraton has good foot massage for 58 RMB. I recently found out you can buy a gold card. I bought the 1000 RMB card - they give you 1300 RMB credit + 2 free foot massage which brings price down to ~ 41 RMB.
I went to the massage place on the top floor of the Baoli shopping center last week and had a foot massage. 1.5 hour for RMB 108. There is an English "Menu" of services offered, and the staff seemed competent.
Anyone have any other places to suggest for a legit. massage?
