It was grooming day on Sunday. My parents went to JB to do some shopping and so i went along. I wanted to go to KSL mall to do some beauty shopping and grooming.
Some people asked why took the trouble just to go all the way there ? Well , things are really cheaper and i can do many things there and pamper myself without feeling the heartbreak.
I changed SGD 305 to Ringgit 900. And after 6 hours in KSL mall , i still have some monies left.
Exchange rate is approx SGD 1 = Ringgit 3
Alot of money changers in SG ran out of ringgit. You can change in JB at rate 2.94.
I had classic gelish pedi and manicure early in the morning at 10am when the shops opened. Why 10am ? Because the shops are mostly empty when it just open at 10am and i do not need to wait or queue.
Classic gelish manicure + Classic gelish pedicure costs RM130 which is approx SGD43. Classic gel pedicure alone costs RM75. It is so much cheaper than in SG and they do it pretty fast because there are 2 people attending to me. One do my pedi and one do for me mani. No surcharge if i do 2 colours .
This is a very big nail salon. Very comfortable too. It is always packed. Managed to take some snap shots with my phone while having my manicure done. No time to go down to Olympus service centre to service my faulty cam 😦
I had apple red pedicure done. Love it !
After that my parents and went to Soon Soon Heng Bak Kut Teh which is just opposite KSL mall.
Famous place for Bak Kut Teh and have to queue for quite awhile. So after my 10am pedi and mani , i had Bak Kut Teh for lunch before i go for hair treatment. How to get to the Bak Kut Teh shop from KSL ? You can find a Hongkong cafe on the ground floor. I cant remember the exact name but it is a Hong Kong style cafe. The bak kut teh store is just the street right opposite the Hong kong style cafe at KSL mall.
You can choose the toppings you one in your bak kut teh ( pig intestines , stomache , liver etc ). Pretty nice and it is really crowded and have to queue to wait for seats. I prefer to seat outdoor because indoor ventilation is quite bad. I came out with my hair and shirt smelling like bak kut teh. So after that i went to RCS salon for Keratase hair treatment. 2 steps Keratase treatment cost Ringgit 160 and 3 steps costs Ringgit 220. There are alot of hair and nail salons in KSL mall. I wanted to go Kimly’s hair salon but i have to wait cos it was packed so i decided to go to another one.
The service was good and i had treatment done in a special treatment room. One thing i like about it is that i was given a 15 minutes head , neck and shoulder massage. The guy just put a timer infront of me and started the 15 minutes massage after he applied the Keratase treatment on my hair and before washing it off. Hair dye costs less than SGD 100. If im not wrong its only about $50-$70 sgd. Cant really remember. Most of the salons offer the same price for treatments and hair dye. There are tooooo many hair salons there already. I spent like 20 minutes walking everywhere to compare the price. There are soo many many salons such that it gets abit competitive and it seems like everyone is offering the same price for everything except for those super atas ones which are mostly the empty ones.
The private treatment room.
And last Friday , we went to Dong Bang Hong for Korean-Chinese food.
Korean-Chinese style Sweet and Sour pork (Tang Su Yuk).
Korean-Chinese Jajjangmyeon (Black bean paste noodle)
Jambbong (Korean spicy seafood noodle)
Dong Bang Hong is located opposite one of Telok Ayer’s MRT exit Just come out of Telok Ayer mrt , cross the road and you will see it.
If i were to compare with Hwangsil , the Jjambbong here tastes better. I don’t know why but the last time i came here , it wasn’t that good. Maybe they changed the cook ?
I cant wait for more Korean food this weekend 🙂
Someone’s gonna bring me for more BBQ ! Yumm Yummm !
Besides putting some masks from Cel-Derma , Leaders insolution , AHC into Cj Mall , Hyundai Mall or Lotte Mall’s shopping cart and buying HERA from my friend’s mother , i also just added these 2 items into the shopping cart this week . All ready to cart out 3 days before i fly so that when i arrive , i can receive these items in our Busan home.
I love the eye liner pencils and lipsticks from Espoir.
And i decided to try this primer. I need this because i will be going outdoors often now and i need my make up to stay and look presentable. Of cos , i will be stocking up my HERA UV Mist cushions , HERA skincare and other stuff too. Shall do a list of what i have gotten when im back in Oct.
Just ordered a set of Hanboks for my niece and nephew. Hope their sizes are not out of stock. Because thanks giving is just around the corner and many parents will be buying han boks for their children.
Love this colour. Cute and so sweet right ?
