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...

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
