We had the pleasure of an exclusive interview with Peggy Chang of sixpegs when she came down for our Special Edition Yuzu Onsen. You might have seen her Ikeda spa Yuzu Onsen instagram post, her testimonial for our Yuzu Onsen or the exclusive interview on our Facebook Page. 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 you?
Something people don’t know about me.. could be anything? I cant swim. (laughs) I might look tan and all but I cant 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.
You 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 cant 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, cozy 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.
