Useless Birthday Gift


Call me ungrateful. I received this well ahead of my birthday. And so did thousands of September babies who are Maybank card members.

A Birthday Card.


A thing of rarity. 


My Exclusive Birthday Gift indeed.


Body Perfect Ladies Beauty & Slimming Haven .... Bah! They are really rubbing it in, aren't they?


The complimentary options for me to choose from.


Diamond Miracle Face Treatment. Yeah, like that would help. 


Essential-Balance Lymphatic Drainage Wellness Therapy for Face & Neck. I don't need lymphatic drainage. I need fat drainage.


Same as Option 2 except that this is for Head & Shoulders.

There is no such thing as complimentary. The moment you step in there, they will recommend this and that and you will end up signing up for more sessions and buying products that will supposedly complement your treatments.

Bah! I wish they would just give me some money instead :(

  2. Ah so you are also a September baby. I didn't get this from them or maybe I didn't check my mail properly.

  15. Hi Phong Hong, nothing is free lah. All this are marketing tactics, tied up with credit card. After the free session they will buzz you like big bumble bee. hahaha.....

  17. Actually I also very afraid of all these complimentary stuff, it is a gimmick, once you are there, they try to psycho and hard sell you more stuff, I hate it
