It has already been a week since I last went for a massage. It is almost a regular routine to have at least one massage per week to release my stress from work. However, this week was really busy that I could not even find time in the evening to go for a massage.
My “addiction” is acting up again and I just wanted to find one good place for my aching body. We are having a BBQ on this lazy evening, but I thought I still have some time to spare before my friends come pouring into my house at 7pm. Sitting around my dining table and talking with my sister and he boyfriend, they mentioned that they have discovered another new massage spa in Serangoon Gardens. It was a TCM treatment center but the spa does provide massage services as well. Without further delay, my girl friend and I went down immediately.
I thought that would be one of the brainless decision I have made. It is Saturday afternoon and Serangoon Gardens is simply packed with people, so was the massage spa. We climbed the stairs eagerly only to find not a single soul, no one was behind the reception counter either. The entire spa was in simple form without decoration and there was maybe three to four rooms lined along the corridor. Maybe all rooms are occupied with customers, the spa was actually quite peaceful as well.
Treatment Rooms lined along the corridors.
Out of a sudden, a female masseur walked out of the room and before I could check with her any information, she replied that their appointment is full and we had no choice but to leave with disappointment. We went on to try our luck at The Organic Spa which was right beside this spa.
Our Second Try – Another Failed Attempt
As we did not managed to book an appointment to all the spa we visited on Saturday, I called up on Sunday afternoon made an appointment for three body massage at 5pm. 15 minutes before I leave my house for the spa, the lady that picked up my call earlier asked if three of us are male. After I responded that two of us are female, she stammered onto the phone for a while and say she had to cancel my appointment as one of the masseur was not feeling well. Kinda weird.
PS: Based on my sister’s boyfriend experience, he actually had a very good massage by one of the masseur, Kaili some time ago, so I believe it wasn’t a sleazy spa but it was just weird that she rejected our appointment. Definitely will be back to try it out again.
