Fuelled by jealousy, I decided to have an awesome weekend too. Called some friends to cook up a plan. We decided that it's high time we pamper ourselves and go for a spa.
I came across the Saujana in the internet and decided to pay this place a visit. It was undoubtedly love at first sight for me.
The Spa and Medbeauty at The Saujana is an exclusive spa boutique located close to the Subang Airport. Each individual/couple will get his/her/their own spa villa,located in a tropical rainforest. The place seriously breathes beauty, luxury and 1st class comfort.
The Medbeauty system developed by a Swiss dermatologist uses plant stem cells for beauty and anti ageing benefits.
The signature indulgent oriental ritual - The Saujana is a three hours worth of heaven on earth. The package includes an aromatherapy foot polish, signature massage, swiss facial, foot massage, body polish and an oriental bathing ritual in soft rose petals (I swear the list seemed endless when I first read it!)
You are spoiled with two therapists to pamper you to the limit and you can even tailor your package to your needs i.e scrap the foot polish for a longer massage. The facial and foot massage are done simultaneously for absolute indulgence!! That last bit seriously got our eyeballs rolling on the floor.
The bomb that killed us low income earners were of course, the price. The best package that we were dying to experience was priced at RM780. With an AMEX credit card you can get 20% discount but that is still a whopping RM640 for an intangible, once off experience! I wanted to give in so much to the temptation of being pampered for 180 minutes but I could faintly here my bank account says "Please dont rob me off just yet! We have bills to pay!!!"
I tried to come up with reasons.
That I could pay by installments to my dad or I could do it annually so when you think of it that way, I only spend about RM60 per month for a once off experience. That's only about RM2 per day, definitely affordable! I was at the tip of agreeing, I even fantasized on the idea of my darling father lifting me off my financial burdens. In my wonderful dream, he said "Anything for my darling daughter, your happiness and health is priceless."
But of course, that will only happen in my dreams. When I told my mom about it, she thought I have gone crazy and that I needed a reality check.
Maybe I'll start my saving now. That way I will appreciate my indulgence better when I get them.
So I walked out of the spa boutique heavy-hearted, as my arms, legs, face and entire body cries in agony. Somehow I could almost feel my bank account gave myself a pat on the back...and that made a difference :D
