Father's Day Group Buying Deals Offering More Than RM3k Discounts!

So have you purchased any group buying promotion to celebrate Father's day? (Don't tell me you've forgotten. Yes it is today!) Well, I am sure a lot of people did that, either the son/daughter bought for their father or the father bought it for himself :P.

Anyway you might be surprised to know that since the last few days, Dealshelve has collected and presented around 26 Father's Day specific deals from Malaysia, Singapore and Philippines group buying sites. All these deals offered our readers a total discounted price of RM3000++ (value is converted to Ringgit from Sing Dollar and Peso).

Most of the Father's Day deals are related to gourmet. The merchants assume that people would like to go to restaurant for Father's Day celebration. For example, there is a 53% discounted buffet lunch promotion at Makati Palace Hotel (Philippines).

There is another irresistible buffet lunch at Green Hills Cafe (Philippines) at 50% discounts.
Some people would prefer to surprise their dad with a box of cupcakes from Fancy Cakes (Philippines). It's at 50% discounts!
Another 42% discounted chocolate banana royal cake from Pure Addiction (Singapore), looks yummy~ :)
Other than that, the second majority of deals come from beauty and wellness category. Of course, most dads love looking half their age as much as moms do! Salon De San Lorenzo (Philippines) provided a deal with 58% discounted price, for hair cutting and coloring.
How about some dads without hair at all? Well, plant it! :) Yun Nam (Malaysia) hair care package offered this 98% discounted deal for your dad.
In fact, for those dads with moustache or beard, Skin Diva (Philippines) offered a 72% discounted laser hair removal package.
Some group buying sites also offered hotel packages just for Father's Day. For example treating the hardworking dad to a restful weekend away from all the hustle and bustle of the city at Makati Palace Hotel (Philippines).
Some prefer Hotel Celeste (Philippines) too.
Other than food, beauty products and hotel packages, there are some Father's Day deals which are quite unique, for example a color changing mug from AllDealsAsia (Singapore).
And even a cutie bear from Baguio Petals for dads!!!

Happy Dragon Boat Festival

Happy Dragon Boat Festival to all!

Today (6th June) is the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival and it happens to be the replacement holiday of Agong's birthday for many people. Most of the Malaysians celebrating the festival would be at home enjoying the delicious dumpling. Yummy!

For some of you who don't know the origin of Chinese Dragon Boat Festival, it is a day to remember a great patriot in ancient China, Qu Yuan, who loves his country so much and committed suicide when his country fell apart. So, some people started to commemorate him by eating dumpling and some competing in dragon boat race.

But what means more to us is
definitely the delicious dumplings! And many varieties of them! Other than preparing dumplings ourselves or getting help from our parents or relatives (Well, this is the easiest way), there are not many options left for us. Fortunately for people in China, Taiwan and some other countries that are already accustomed to group buying, it is not surprising they actually order their dumplings online from group buying sites!
In China, 85Cafe which featured dumplings deal in group buying sites sold over 10 thousands coupons in less than 2 days. Many outlets of 85Cafe even ran out of stock due to the incredible sales. Similarly, many group buying sites are also taking advantage of this holiday period to provide holiday packages, restaurant discounts and many other deals to attract more customers. We hope to see more great deals coming from the group buying sites so we get to enjoy more for less!

Well, for now, it's time to enjoy my next dumpling (Oouugh...)
