The Body Shop Sale

ABBEY: It's the 2nd time we went for this sale. This time its for our gifts for our loved ones back in PH. Body wash, lotions, butter, creams, fragrances and accessories are all over the place. You can get 2 of a kind for 12 or 16sgd. Its good they having this kind of sale. Lesson? Come in pair; one is to queue for cashier and the other to shop. That's how the customers patronize this wellness shop.



WILL: As I said, I am member of this very lovely shop. So, I constantly receives mails and sms from them. When I read their text message, idea ran so fast in my head. Since my sister and in-laws will be going here for 3-day vacation this is a good idea for pasalubongs. Hehe. 
Every ladies go gaga! Every Body Shop marked down the prices. Oh, this is not my first time with this. Hehe. Love Body Shop products and advocacies! Very worthy to support them.

Spa Le' Kraton

ABBEY: Spoiler Alert: To those who stays at Punggol, this spa haven is far from you. It's located at West Avenue 7, Bukit Gombak.

Even though it's way too far from our place, it is still great.

Upon arrival, we're greeted by their staff and served ginger tea. We're ushered to a comfortable sofa bed with good lighting and sounds. A couple of minutes later the treatment began. We got head and full body massage as well as ear candling all for a price of 38sgd per person. It's a refreshing and rejuvenating experience.




WILL: How I found this spa? Through FB ads. Our aching body needs a knead. 
        

When I visited their page, they have a promotion. $38 for whole body massage & ear candling. Not bad ha! Well, we took a two hour bus ride from our place, quite far. But the serene beauty of their place was so nice and make me forget how far we are from thier location. The massage concentrates a lot the legs, thigh and head part. The ear candling? I hope they let us see if they really get some of our earwax. Overall, not bad. ;)

Chilli Chicken McGrill



ABBEY: I thought I won't be able to avail this promo. Buy a Spicy Chicken McGrill and get one spicy or original free. For 10sgd the sandwich comes with large drink and fries. It was so hot; I felt I got fire in my belly. As far as I can remember I had 4 of 1 for 1. Of course the other half is for my wifey.

They also offer black pepper chicken McGrill.


WILL:  And they have a promotion again and this one is to celebrate Singapore's 46th birthday :) To promote the chicken burger varieties, they send off the chili chicken McGrill. The taste? Oh yeah, the slogan is right!, it is really a fire in our belly. Hehe. :) Nice, another way to spice up our life. It costs $7 ala carte.

Tom N Toms Coffee



ABBEY: This is a 24-hour coffee shop located at Icon Village in Tanjong Pagar. We met her jargon after her last day at the office. As usual when I go to coffee shop, I try their chocolate concoction. It was good. Cup price starts at 5sgd. This is a nice alternative to the usual SB or CBTL.

WILL: Korean fanatic? What can you say in a Korean cafe? In their shop you can watch concerts of their famous lady/boy groups. Nice lei. Oh, after ordering the drinks, they will give you a saucer like black thing that will light up once your drinks are ready to be pick-up at the counter. 
      They were located at Icon Village near Tanjong Pagar MRT. I ordered a herbal tea...rosemary! Nice very natural and their prices is not that costly than other coffee shops. But be aware, even this place is open for 24 hrs it is always full. People love them a lot. :)

Eagos USA


ABBEY: Wilma surprised me with this shirt after I went out from office. It has a gray color with printed design. She won't tell me the price, but I managed to know it when I passed by the shop after lunch. The shirt costs 10sgd. They conducted sale from time to time. Sad to hear that their branch at Suntec City mall closed down.


WILL: As I brushed my way to the rushing people in Suntec City Mall, I saw a huge banner for their move-out sale. So, no hesitation I bought a shirt for me and Abbey. The shirt is very comfy. For almost six months after constant machine wash, the design until now never fades. A nice quality :)

Pearlie White - Fluorinze Mouthwash


ABBEY: Our mouthwash ran out and went to a wellness shop to buy a new one. We got Pearlie white mouthwash for a change.

We tried it and its good. Had a fresh breath for a longer time.

ABBEY:  It's been almost five months since we tied the knot but we were not still be able to blog on the boutique that provided our beautiful wedding dress and suite.
We went there after Chinese New Year. We were told that they are having promotion. We got all for the price of 888.

Wow, that was great. The shop didn't fail us, as we were both looking good at our BIG day.

Maybe at our 5th or 10th anniversary, we will come again at the boutique :)





WILL: Original plan was to buy at Divisoria as my mom knows a lot of good maker of wedding gowns, but time and location is a big hindrance for that idea. 
      
So nanalo si Abbey, we bought my gown here in Singapore. Tanjong Pagar road is a cradle for wedding needs here in Singapore and its just a two corners away from our office. In stretch of this road, we enter almost every boutique but Jazz Bridal is the most accommodating. Hail to Ms. Jasmine, she gave us good advices and give us a big discount, since it we are their first client after the Chinese New Year.
      
Yeah, we bought the gown but actually it can be rented out, and initial reaction of Ms Jasmine.. "your fiance loves you so much, he bought the gown for you" hehe.
      
We love the Jazz Bridal a lot, everyone is so kind, ooppsss. Before you go here, pls make an appointment, they handle one client at time to ensure the quality service. ;) Oh, you can contact them at 6837 3733.
