Korean Hair Treatment Or This?



These days, anything Korean sells. Korean dramas, Korean songs, Korean cars, Korean tours. And don't forget, Korean Fried Chicken.

Just say the magic word - Korean, and you have everybody's attention.

So. This Korean hair joint is here to grace Damansara Uptown. Touting itself to be I quote "...the first and only hair salon in Malaysia to have the Korean Hair Treatment Spa, a hair treatment service that is done while you are lying down. 

Relax yourself and ease all of the muscles in your body, let our crews massage your back and shoulder.

Let the pleasant sensations of drifting away into a calm and quite place over takes your mind, during the process of your hair treatment."

How's that, eh? I see a number. RM88. I assume that is the lowest end of the spectrum. When you walk in there, I bet the crew will lull you into a state of delirium and not only will you spend extra on add ons, but you will also walk out with an armful of hair products to maintain your lovely locks.


I'm pretty sure many leng luis and aunties are looking forwards to this hair treatment spa. But this Madam here is of a different species.

Let me tell you, I can do the "Let the pleasant sensations of drifting away into a calm and quite place over takes your mind" for less than RM88. It doesn't involve hair of course.


Muahahaha!! Did you just slap your forehead? This here my friends is one of my antidotes for stress and a source of joy. My most expensive tapau to date. 


Before you go tut tutting or tsk tsking, let me just say this. I don't buy designer shoes. I don't buy designer bags. I don't buy designer clothes. I don't do exotic getaways. Heck, I don't do designer hair.

My money has to go somewhere (besides to Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri, Tenaga Nasional, Telekom Malaysia, Bake With Yen, day to day stuff and the odd charity, you get the drift). 


So. Food is my vice. Good food. I believe in eating well and I would not hesitate to spend money on what I love to eat.


There you go. I put money where my mouth is. Literally.

  1. Oh my!!! That place again! Got your lifetime membership yet?

    RM80? *faints* And talking about Korean, check out my post tomorrow.

    Ya...I only spend on food and utility bills mostly, pension not much but enough to go round. All this talk about not having enough money to spend once retired, I am getting on absolutely ok...but of course, I have my pension plus the interest from my meagre savings, my gratuity, my EPF, my matured insurance policies - more than enough to get buy comfortably. My life has never been better - no need to work, that's the best part!

  3. I would not mind splurging on food. But must be good and worth the value.

    Hair pampering? Long time I did not have it. Since became SAHM, I dont have enough pocket money to indulge myself in such pampering. All gone to kids' stuff.

    1. Agree agree! I don't pamper my hair either. Go for haircut only when the fringe starts irritating my eyes :D

  4. gosh, i wonder what korean hair treatment is defined as ... i assume it's the sort of treatment that makes one's hair look lustrous enough to belong on a k-pop star's head! :D i spend RM15 on my haircut every six weeks ... and the cash i save goes to my cocktail fund, heh! though an ampersand pork belly fund sounds good too! :D

  5. I also feel it is important to fill the stomach so money spent on food is well worth it and sometimes it is alright to pamper yourself with good food

  9. You are wise lady, Phong Hong, putting money where your mouth is. Except mobile phone Samsung, I never been attracted to anything from Korea. I trust stuffs made in Japan, Israel, some western nations such as USA, Italy, Switzerland, etc.

    Do have a safe weekend.

    Blessings

  10. Your Korean introduction is absolutely unnecessary. Not only does your stress relief does not involve hair, it is not even Korean! Good good! :D

    1. The connection is people spend on hair treatment etc but you spend on food! Right, PH?
