During my maternity, I ask hubby to bought me this deal. The details are as following:-

3HR FULL BODY AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE PACKAGE
93% Off - RM28 for 3Hr10Mins Full Body Aromatherapy Massage + Herbal Ball + Upper Body Mask + Foot Bath (Originally RM388) from I Love Discount.

 A 3 hour breakdown of the package details:

  • Full Body Aromatherapy Massage - 120 mins
  • Herbal Ball Therapy - 30 mins
  • Upper Body Mask - 30 mins
  • Foot Bath - 10 mins
What attractive about this deal? 120 minutes of full body massage and cover up total of 3 hours with just RM 28 is really a good deal. However, when i check with the merchant, the lady owner, Suky said that this is just a small massage center with two beds available. So the booking is always full. Luckily, i manage to make my booking in advance during weekend.

I have a very hard time finding this place. Located at Shamelin Perkasa the shop lot behind 1 Shamelin, it took me 40 minutes to reach there. I pass by the three shop lot but i still could not locate this center. The shop lot building looks old and really frightened me. It is actually attached to a gold smith shop and beside is a Mamak stall (Al-Amin Curry House). Parking is very limited.

The session starts with foot bath. Water is hot but not to my expectation of foot bath of 10 minutes. They just put a slice of ginger., and we put in both of our legs. This term should be called as washing your legs only. Not even 5 minutes, they ask us to lift up and while water is still dripping, i need to hang in there and they slip over the small towel to clean my leg. And yet my leg is still wet. The three mini lockers there is not functioning.

The massage room is not really impressive,Small room cover up with curtain and they should not claim this as couple's room. Not a single smell of massage oil or aromatherapy. Only two beds is available. I had a real shocked when they tell me there is NO Disposable Panties. The reason behind, Suky have not bought the new stock!!!!!!!!. I have been into so much massage and spa center. I never encountered this situation. A little blur on my face and i was thinking how this owner manage this center. They can't even provide a proper needs to the customer, really a bad management. I felt insecure and was thinking whether even the towel is clean enough. I ask them to get their assurance.

There are two masseuse available both from Indonesia. Kak Tun and Kak Yuni. They have been working here for the past 2 years and i yet to see Suky around. I managed to look at my clock to ensure they give me full treatment of 3 hours and 10 minutes and the treatment starts at 11am.
I ask for explanation how long will each treatment will be. The session starts with a light scrub made from Serai only on my back upper body. They said they will just wipe off the scrub, as the heater is not functioning, so there is no hot water. Arghhh! Normally after each scrub, we need to take shower. Very disappointing with this kind of service and such a terrible environment!


After they wipe it off, Kak Yuni put something like lotion on the same place. Now they wrap me twice after they apply the cream.They did not mention how long this will take.I was wondering what is the purpose of this treatment? Just put in some cream, and they claimed it as 'Upper Body Mask', and just wrap on top of it. 

I don't feel anything. After waited about 40 minutes, i called and scream few times, but no one answer me! I shouted again and both of them comes in. I complaint to them that this treatment takes me like 1 hour lying there without feeling anything!. They claimed the time actually just 20 minutes. I have my phone around me so i know the best answer.

So , now is our massage session begins at 11.50am. For two hours full body massage i really expect more.The techniques by this two masseur is pretty good. I have an enjoyable massage session, but hubby said the pressure on both side is different which means Kak Tun might have one side pressing harder on his body while the other side is just a light touch.
For me, i personally love the herbal ball. It's my first experience and i do enjoy it.

A herbal ball serves as a traditional remedy which has been inherited more than 400 years in Thailand, known as “treasury of herbs”. It is used to help recover women’s body after childbirth and strengthen the natural healing power in our body and immunity against deceases. In addition, it helps relieve severe pain and stiffness and improve the functions of internal organs


I have a longer massage on my leg and tummy. Herbal ball is good to remove wind. I spend more time massaging on my tummy , thus there is not much time left. There is no massage on my head and face. They will start with the herbal ball after the back massage is done. You will felt a little bit hot sensation apply on whole body.Next, when they finish massage on your front side, they will use the herbal ball again.

The walkway to the massage area. I think they need to refurnish the toilets and the lockers as well


They do provide facial treatment

The entrance where you can change your shoes at the front area, and we have our warm water and ginger tea here. The total hours spend is about 3 hours.

Overall , despite the complaints that i need to highlight to the merchant, and the bad environment, this deal is worth the value. Current promotion being offers is 5 treatmenta free 1 treatment at RM 58 each session which lasts about 2 hours.

Just want to share my friend's experience in Multi Beauty after she purchased the following deal :-

4Hrs Full Body Massage + Red Wine Gel Body Scrub + Guasa + Hot Stone Back Treatment + Ultrasonic Facial + Eye & Neck Treatment @ Multi Beauty from living social website. Price : RM 49.90 instead of RM 403.

This package comes with one hour full body massage, one hour breakdown into hot stone, guasa and scrub together with 2 hour facial treatment . 

This deal look interesting with just RM 50, to get 4 hours treatment. But unfortunately, my friend told me the center did not provide her the following treatment as advertised in the website, almost about one hour missing. So she only finish those treatments in 3 hours. 

  • 15-minute red wine gel body scrub provides royally exfoliation
  • Guasa ( 30 minutes) 
  • Hot stone back treatment (15 minutes) detoxifies and treats fatigued body and mind

Which means, another cheating merchant that cannot fulfill what they promise customer as what they advertise in the website. How we can trust them in the future for any upcoming deal or most regular terms so called as' Back by Popular Demand'. 

When question them, they just ignore and no such treatment as following. If i am in her position i will definitely give them two option. Either they compensate the missing one hour to my massage treatment or i will just ask for full refund. And reminder to always highlight to them and print out the breakdown of how many minutes spend on each treatment.

 Steps of Ultrasonic Facial:

  1. Double cleansing
  2. Scrub
  3. Steam
  4. Extraction
  5. Eye treatment
  6. Eye pillow treatment
  7. Neck treatment
  8. Ultrasound
  9. Face massage
  10. Double masks
  11. Skincare

Taiwan Pork Mian Xian @ Ice Box, Pandan Indah

Taiwan Pork Mian Xian + Sausage + Traditional Black Tea (suitable for 1 person) @ Ice Box. This is my first time to redeem the free taste voucher from JoinMe http://joinme.com.my/taste_voucher/15.
Ice Box is located at Pandan Indah, along the shop lot area where you will pass by The Store. This restaurant is just opposite.There is no customer yet when i walk in.The staff welcome me with a great smile and overall the service is excellent.
Cozy reading section

Clean and comfortable seating arrangement

Taiwan Pork Mian Xian  (RM5.80)
Taiwan Sausage (RM 2.00)
Taiwan Traditional Black Tea (RM 2.80)

Taiwan Mian Xian or it also called as mee sua. I find that the taste is just average. But when i put in the 'Ma Lat' the taste turns to be better and a little spicy. There is another option to put the blended garlic.

The Taiwan sausage taste very good. Also not to forget the red tea they serve is really a a big portion.

Well decorated dining area

Ice Box is also having current promotion of Taiwan braised meat rice with fruit juice with only RM 9.90. Really a good promotion.

There are also lots of other menu and desserts available. I find that the mango sago with ice cream looks yummy with only RM 14.80. Just realized they also did many online deals before with different set menu. Looking forward for their next deal!


Food : Good
Service : Excellent

Piu Pura Bath & Spa Haven @ Setapak

2-hour Pamper Package: Full Body Balinese Massage + Coconut Polish + Head and Shoulder Therapy + Foot Spa for 1 (RM38) / 2 (RM68) People from Groupon.

I bought this voucher with only RM 18 because i have credit given by Groupon of RM 20. So it is really worth it and i am looking forward to try on this massage because also near to my house. 

Located at Jalan Genting Klang, Setapak, along the new shop area  where they used to have Overtime (but now have closed) , Piu Pura is located at 2nd floor. There is a lift that can be used to go upstairs instead of taking staircase or escalator. 

I have made booking one months earlier to avoid dissapointment and Piu Pura will send reminder via sms. I reach at 12.10 noon. Once i step in, a friendly 'Kak' assist me to the spa area.The entrance is small, but i do like the massage area. Dim light and the aroma of the massage oil makes this place so much comfortable. 

Piu Pura uses best products made from natural ingredients from the forests of South East Asia. 'Kak told me they use premium products from Ramburi (Thailand) and Tanamera (Malaysia). The also display these products on the shelves.


This spa have only three beds available (no wonder the booking is always full). Clean, comfortable environment and the area is quite small. Only one huge jacuzzi or sometime they called it like jacuzzi bath tub. Pleasant massage area, most important the towel and bed sheet is clean.They provide three mini lockers and i just put my belongings there. This place only accept ladies which is great as we have our own privacy.


The lady that i called her ' Kak' is my masseuse for today treatment. She is the senior massage therapist here. Her smile welcomes me to this wonderful spa and she gives me full details on the package that i buy from Groupon. 

Firstly, she give me a 15 minute foot spa that is worth (RM 33), follow by balinese full body massage and oat polish (oat scrub). The coconut polish as stated in the Groupon voucher has finished. So she will replaced with the oat polish. The foot spa experience is something new. She will use this method called 'Pijat' , which means she will put a light massage on my foot and my toes. Very relaxing.They use clean and new towel as well. While enjoying my foot spa, they will serve the ginger tea.

Then we proceed to the massage area. Very cold due to the high air cond temperature and i requested 'Kak'  to lower the temperature. The session start with the full body scrub using the oat .But i just realised there is no music .Normally in spa area, they have this soft music put on.

Then, proceed to the shower area. 'Kak' will ask me if i need to add massage oil. I was wondering aren't they using massage oil for this treatment? I just said 'no' to her because from my past experience if the masseuse question this, which means we need to pay for that request.

I guess they only give me those normal massage oil. The massage session is very relaxing especially the head massage. And now only they put up the soft music. I fall asleep, very comfortable and enjoyable. But, suddenly there is a ringing tone and the lady beside me answering a call!!! Did they know that here is a massage centre? Very dissapointed with this kind of people who didn't even know how to respect this place. Piu Pura website also stated that 'PLEASE SILENT YOUR PHONE'. I do understand some might waiting for urgent calls. But usually, people will put it silent. Not one lady but two lady phones are ringing and they talking so loud!.

After the full treatment ends at 1.40pm, 'Kak' introduce post-natal package for me as i have just deliver my second baby sometime in May. She said this treatment package that cost only RM 100 (first trial) inclusive of 'bertungku' , herbal ball and full body massage. It help improve blood circulation, expel ‘lochia’ and trapped winds & toxins, to lift the womb and keep it from sagging, hasten the shrinkage of the enlarged uterus, flatten the abdomen and breakdown stubborn body fat to its pre-pregnancy size and shape and speed up overall recovery. They are also having promotions for all the massage package. Check out on their webpage.

She also give me some useful reminder:-

  • Practice to wake up from the side
  • Do not squat often
  • Clean whole body after bath clean, avoid air conditioner room and bath early.
  • Soak leg for blood circulation

Overall, i enjoy the whole treatment and for the price of RM 18, it is really worth the value.
