Groupon Sales, To Buy Or Not To Buy?

For the past two weeks, I have been opening the Groupon emails regularly to see what's in store for Ipoh.... and I have been attracted by a few!  But no, I have not purchased them yet.. still hesitating even though the same promo appearing in my emails each day... very tempting to buy!!
These Super Cheap coupons attracted my attention....

First the Food:  Yummyyyy.....
Sunday BBQ Buffet Dinner at Bricks & Barrels Gastrobar.Beergarden for RM30

Then the Massage:  Relaxxx....
Classic Mani-Pedi + Hand and Foot Scrub + Hand and Foot Massage + Callus Removal for 1 (RM32) 

Food again:  Slurrrpp.......
Crispy Pi Pa Roasted Duck (½ Bird) + Steamed Herbal Chicken (½ Bird) + Dessert at Super Taste Steamboat & Seafood Restaurant for RM25

Finally the massage:  Sighhhhh.....
2.5-hour Full Body Spa Package: Swedish Massage + Facial + Steam Bath / Sauna + Jacuzzi for 1 (RM38)  
And now the question is..... should I buy them all????    *take out calculator*  RM123 and that is for one person.... 
Moral of the story..... Do not open Groupon emails daily... once awhile will do... now I am still contemplating....  To Buy or Not To Buy.... :)


  1. I try not to buy these promos coz tried a few times when redeem made feel like second class citizen.

    only buy those that really "dai"

  2. kathy, oh yeah far I bought once.. that is Murad.. they sent to my it was fine.... makan one, never tried before..

  3. Maybe just buy one that you really like? Don't buy so many at one go! LOL! I did not have good experiences with these type of coupon deals. So I avoid them unless really worth it : )

  4. Oh by the way, I have requested Groupon to stop spamming my email every day. Got really frustrated with their constant daily spamming! LOL

  5. foong: see already macam must buy.. dont buy like hands itchy.. hahaha... oh.. spamming? i thought u can unsubscribe?

  6. oh, groupon only spams my old emails :)

  7. No such thing here...which can be a blessing in disguise!

  8. I always forget to bring the coupons and they expire before I can use them.

  9. If you buy you are Group-On if you tak nak then you are Group-Off. Bananaz poor in maths you know best like small kucing meow about if 'dai' why not. Be careful over the expiry date.

  10. buy buy buy, and learn the lesson, haha!! and then tell us which one that we should and should not buy in the future~~ :D

  11. wenn: i also dont know when i subscribe for this..

    stp: save and safe! hahaha..

    ginny: oh dear, what a waste..

    bananaz: yes..for absent minded people like me, it expires before I remember.. :)

    sk: use me as a guinea pig? hehee...

  12. haha I'm tempted too but till now never purchase any from it. Sometime feel sick of reading those tiny font T&C.

  13. Bought all types before. Not recommend for facial. I hate hard sell salesperson

  14. vicky: oh.. i didnt read the t n c...

    ling: oh..persuasive? maybe i go for the pedi and mani..

  15. When receiving all kinds of newsletter in my inbox, I try to unsubscribe all these kind of mailing list. I try not to look at all the promotions.

  16. Just be mindful,some of them really sucks..........tried one massage before,,went inside the parlor,see Groupon one,,like no syiok like that,,looking at us like cheapo,,hahahah

  17. My hands will itch too, as all the deals are quite worthy. But you need to weigh, which one is "want" and "need" :)

  18. Yan: smart girl!!

    sk: so u r the + one.. hahaha...

    eugene: u r the 2nd one who said that here.. :)

    yvonne: actually all also no need one.. hahahaa...

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
