I know this is super backdated but I have been keeping the best things for the last!
I am only blogging about this now because we have FREE massages to give away this weekend :)))
I had the most interesting hens’ party just before the wedding,
in fact it was an idea Sharmie and I toyed with but didn't think was work-able.
We initially planned to hold a mani/pedi party
and have a group manicure or pedicure session to pamper ourselves
before heading for dinner and drinks.
But the thought of not allowing anyone to step on our pretty post-pedi toes
while dancing is kinda impossible, so idea trashed.
Then, lo and behold! Masego The Safari Spa comes knocking!
We were approached by super friendly Shu Juan from Masego Spa,
which is a subsidiary of Mary Chia Holdings Limited.
If you haven't already heard of it,
its the first and largest Safari-themed concept spa thats located at SAFRA Jurong,
focusing on signature spa therapies that are inspired by the use of natural products.
Seriously, when I heard about it, I thought it was soooo cute to have a safari-themed spa.
I mean, you usually get the normal soothing neutral-themed ones, and suddenly,
someone does something different and you get safari. Haha.
Shu Juan suggested having a group massage hens party for my entire bridal party
so we could pamper ourselves before heading for a wild night out
and it was probably the best idea i have gotten.
I was super stressed out the week before the wedding cos i have been a lazy bride
and all the last minute impossibles were happening right then
that i was dying for a massage, just that I didnt have time to plan one,
so it was seriously god-send.
We arrived at Masego in the evening, all ready!
All the private tents planted next to each other, like little huts :)
Our special suite! They combined 2 tents into one large one so that
all of us could be in the same tent during the massage.
my last moment of singlehood! Haha.
We were all asked to fill up a form that listed our problem areas (ie neck, shoulders, back)
and the assigned therapist to each individual will actually take note of the particular area
you indicated and pay more attention to it!
No kidding because all my friends who did the same massage said their therapist all concentrated on different spots and when we analyzed it further, it was cos they all had different problem areas.
in our safari-themed robes!
I was offered the Mandi Lulur Body Massage which is a traditional beauty remedy for the royalties
in Java just before their weddings. How apt!
it consists of ingredients like turmeric, sandalwood, rice and milk powder, lemon and yoghurt
which are used as natural exfoliant and can help whiten and detox the body.
The massage itself was pretty dedicated and thoughtful.
My therapist paid loads of attention to particular spots that were problematic,
like my shoulders and lower back.
She also mentioned that regular massage can improve the blood circulation
and help with weight loss
so I wasted no time in asking her to go straight to my thighs. Haha.
After that, she did the scrub which was warm and smelt like lemon yakult (???)
and when I went to rinse it off, my skin was crazily soft and smooth.
The rest of the bridal party, with the exception of Sharmie
(she got another special massage!)
had the traditional Indonesian Herbs Spa Remedy.
From what I gathered, it was really special because they got little heated muslin cloth bean bags
that the therapist used to gently hit their entire body. It was the first time for all my girls
and I think they all loved that part.
Even massage junkie Lynn said this was one of better massages she had in Singapore. :)
i presume this is what we would have looked like since i was half naked
and totally unable to take a picture of us in the tent. haha.

all of us, super relaxed with glowing soft skin!
with Shujuan and the outlet manager : )
they have a wall mural of giraffes, and we chopped off the head in this pic.
So after waxing lyrical about the whole massage session, this is the best part:
