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...

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
