I love spending (read : wasting) time at the spa. It has all started when muka dulu banyak sgt pimples. So I was trying all sorts of facial products, but none worked. Ibu suggested me to visit this one salon in Taman Melawati for facial treatment, and the rest is history.
Ok the very first spa I visited was Salinas Salon. Ok, it shouldn't be classified as a spa, but the treatment that Aunty Salina gave was great. She is the only spa owner who remembers my name (yes, because I visited her salon every other month, weeee.. ;p). Her salon might not have the best interior with all this Javanese music to calm ke apa ke, but she is very experienced that when she massaged, memang habis keluar semua angin dalam badan ni, hehe! Sometimes, I felt sorry to orang yang massage my body because diaorg asyik sendawa as if there is a big baloon in body which will explode,haha! Yang lagi best, her body scrub product is so wangiiii (see extra `i' to show the extra wangi-ness ;p). So, if I went there to do scrub, Aunty will asked me to jump in into her sauna box, then she'll do the scrub and habislah riwayat kulit-kulit mati, yay! Aunty Salina used a lot of product from plant based, so yes, that was an extra umph!
The second spa I visited was Serenity Spa in Setiawangsa. Happened to go there because Aunty Salina was booked up. So, as usual, I entered the spa, requesting for facial treatment, 1 hour massage and scrub. So, the beautician started to do her magic work while trying to make conversation with me (while I always prefer a silent during treatment because I want to sleep), and suddenly she was introducing products and saying different price for different product. At that very moment, I knew this will be my first and last visit. I believe that this sort of conversation should be carried out during our discussion prior the treatment, not while I was on the treatment bed, berkemban and trying to sleep. That's a no-no rule for me. But, to do justice, the spa's interior is nice and I guess the surrounding which slightly secluded from the road were an additional point, so sunyi je while the treatment goes. The price was average, so, yes, I never visit them again. They used one of this Malaysian brand, if I am not mistaken was...ala, yang botol purple tu..hem..ok, I don't remember.
Now that I kept going to Shah Alam, I thought I should try any spa in the nearby area of my laundry. So, I visited Amdamai Spa, located in the shop lots next to PTPL, the same row of AmBank. My first beautician was Ira, young girl from Kedah. So, she allowed me to choose my scrub type, and I opted for Mango scrub. Damn it was amazing, the smell and how it soothes my skin was absurd! Slightly expensive than other range but I have visited Andamai for 3 times, and I still choose Mango scrub. Interior was average but the Mango scrub hooked me up, haha!
Overal, I only visited spa when I had nothing to do on weekends, or I felt so tired that I need some me time. And defenitely, I will re-visit Khareyna Spa. I just love it. Maybe next week? Who knows!
