Groupon Experience @ The Organic Spa

Saw this on Groupon and thought it's quite a deal so I bought it for 2 persons for $80. Details of the deal states that it's 1 hour facial, 1 hour massage, 15 mins back mask and 15 mins tummy mask. The Organic Spa is located at Serangoon Gardens.


It was when I called to make booking that the person tell me that the Groupon can only be used for weekdays and morning during weekends.

The Organic Spa was located at level 2 of one of the shophouses. We requested for couple room. Although it was stated in the voucher that there's an additional $10 charge for couple room, we were not charged the $10. The lady started telling us that the massage oil used for the Groupon one is the normal oil and recommended us to top up $10 per person for aroma therapy oil. Okay, the normal oil smelt like those 跌打酒 used by TCM. So we decided to top up the $10 for the aroma therapy oil.

After a while, the lady started selling me their red wine massage with yogurt back mask for additional $25. She r…

Recommended fusion fine dining @ The Clan Restaurant

The Clan Restaurant
Address: 1 Selegie Road #02-01, POMO, Singapore 188306

Few years back, we tried Dozo which is a Japanese-French fusion restaurant located at Valley Point Shopping Center along River Valley Road and fell in love with it. It was priced reasonably for the wonderful food, service and ambience for a 6 or 7 course set.

However, last year, when we wanted to revisit Dozo, we realised that it was closed! After researching online, we found a similar recommendation by Hungry Go Where - The Clan Restaurant. The standard of the food, service and ambience was comparable to Dozo! We felt so satisfied after meal there.

We went for the weekend 5 course lunch which was priced at $$49.80++ which we think is very very worth it given the quality of the food and service.

From the side dish, to soup, to the main dish and dessert, they have a wide variety for customers to choose from. You can find the menu here. But do note that the actual menu might differ from the website one as they ch…

Foodie in Hong Kong

Went for a Hong Kong trip for a short 4 day 3 night getaway. I’m definitely not a fan of crowds and ‘rushing for time’ city so I don't really like travelling in Hong Kong that much. I find that the only thing that attracts me is food, food and food!
再兴烧腊饭店 (Joy Hing Roasted Meat) Address: Chong Hing Building, 265-267 Hennessy Rd, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
How to get there: Alight at Wan Chai MTR station (exit A4) and walk along Hennessy Road. You will need to cross the road.


It’s a very small eatery and it gets crowded during lunch or dinner hours. You might have to share a table with others, and you cannot sit there and chit chat after you have finished your food. There are other customers waiting for your seat. 

We ordered a plate of charsiew and roast duck rice, a plate of chicken rice, a soup and an additional small plate of charsiew for only 60 HKD! Free flow of tea provided!



Lin Heung Teahouse (莲香楼) Address: 160-164 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong

Mucota Omega Rebonding at Focus Hairdressing

I initially wanted to try out volume rebonding at some Korean hair salon in Singapore but the price was really expensive, around $350 for my hair length and I was told that the effect was just like soft rebonding, except that it gives the hair more volume. For my hair length, the hairstylist usually will recommend me to perm the ends to have the romantic Korean feel. But I know I will be lazy to maintain the curls. So I dropped the idea. 

I saw many good reviews online for mucota rebonding at Focus Hairdressing. It's located at Cuppage Plaza Level 1 which is just 5 mins walk from Somerset MRT. I have previously tried mucota hair treatment at Creme Hairdressing (Chinatown Point outlet) and I really love the treatment effect. You can read about my mucota treatment experience at Creme Hairdressing. So i decided to try out Mucota rebonding.

I originally planned to take the mucota dyna hair rebonding since it is the cheapest kind of mucota rebonding that Focus offers, it's only $200 …
