We had the pleasure of an exclusive interview with Peggy Chang of Sixpegs when she came down for our Special Edition Yuzu Onsen. Well, here is the full-length interview!
Tell us about yourself.
My name is Peggy. I co-own two cafes – The Tiramisu Hero and Butter My Buns. On the side, I’m also…I don’t like to use this word but, people call me an influencer. I just like to dabble around with Instagram and blog and write stuff that people might like to read.
What are you passionate about?
I like photography, I like travelling, I like spending time with my family, friends and my… pets.
What is something people don’t know about Sixpegs?
Something people don’t know about Sixpegs.. could be anything? I can’t swim. (laughs) I might look tan and all but I can’t swim.
Tell us about your first experience here
First time I came here was 5 years years ago, I went to the other branch – the one at Bukit Timah because it was near my office – where I was working back then. I think I went there 2-3 times, usually when I really really need the massage. When I really need to unwind, that’s my go-to place.
How did you first find out about us?
It was by word-of-mouth, my colleague brought me there and she was generous enough to share the package she had over at Ikeda back then and I was pretty sold with just one session.
What do you like about Ikeda Spa?
I think it starts from the very first moment you step into Ikeda, it’s very welcoming. The people feel very genuine and sincere, not pushy like some of the spas I might have visited before. The place is very comfortable to be in, very cosy and the services are good, of course. I like how everything – from the furniture to the music to the ambience is very in-line with how Ikeda is like -it’s very Japanese.
Sixpegs tried our Special Edition Yuzu Onsen, what was your favourite part?
Apart from the onsen, the moment I saw the place I was like omg I can’t wait to have a dip inside the onsen). I like the smell. It’s a very nice scent, very refreshing. The whole set-up was private, cosy and very clean I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Who do you think this Onsen is best suited for?
Best suited for? I think everyone should try, I think everyone should try the special Yuzu Onsen. Especially if you are like me I just had a workout yesterday and I was aching all over and having a dip in the onsen really helped.
