Facial Treatment at Sothys Just Now

flower tea

Sothys originated in France as headquarters and was founded in 1946. Sothys, a world of extremely refined sensuality, a legendary name that represents excellence and prestige in beauty salons and spas all over the world. In Penang, it is a franchise business with outlets in Gurney Paragon with a salon for treatment and in Gurney Plaza near Parkson in a counter selling the retail products.

I was checking my over 20k plus points of Manis. As there were no more vouchers like Tesco which is a hot item, I decided to check out Health and Beauty under Rewards redemption and promptly redeemed 7,500 points for 30% discount on treatment at Sothys. I called up the outlet in Queensbay Mall, but no one picked up the phone! Hence, I called Gurney Paragon instead and made an appointment today at 6:00 pm.

Above is flower tea in a nice flowery teacup where I had drunk half before remembering to capture it using my iPhone 6. Winnie, the only attendant recommended Moisture Glow and Radiance, on item 5 for me after asking some questions and filling up a form.

Here at the counter, are their diverse range of products to cater to all skin types from whitening, to anti-aging, sun-block, rash break-ups and much more.

Sothys receipt

After a discount of 30% from $210, I pay only $147 with 6% GST included. Also got another cup of flower tea upon completion and a free sample of radiant moisturizer to try. Not bad for a first time experience at Sothys Gurney Paragon.

How Rich are you? Here is the Benchmark

Credit goes to KCLau for this article: How rich are you? Most people are reluctant to answer because there are only 1% of the population are rich! However, if you are to respond to such a question honestly, what would it be? Would you answer “I have two houses, three cars, a few FD, etc.”, or “I am worth RM300,000?, or “I earn RM20,000 a month” etc.

There are many ways to state our wealth. In fact, wealth is more appropriate to be indicated by “time”, not the amount of “asset” we have.

This is the formula:

Wealth = How long we can continue and maintain our lifestyle without working?

According to the above formula, this is how we should state our wealth:
I can maintain my current lifestyle for ten years without working. How long would it be for you? How wealthy are you? 3 months? 1 year? I read the book The Millionaire Next Door back in 2001. It is a marvelous book!

Multiply your age times your realized pretax annual household income from all sources except inheritances. Divide by ten. This, less any inherited wealth, is what your net worth should be.

One’s expected net worth (ENW) = Age X(Realised Pre-tax Annual Household Income exclude inherited income)/10

Example, Mr. Lee’s annual income is RM100,000, age 35.
Lee’s expected net worth = 35 X RM100,000 /10 = RM350,000.
According to Dr. Thomas J. Stanley (the author), there are three categories of wealth accumulator:

1. PAW – Prodigious Accumulator of Wealth
2. AAW – Average Accumulator of Wealth
3. UAW – Under Accumulator of Wealth

If Mr. Lee’s net worth is RM800,000, which is more than two times of ENW, he is a PAW.
If Mr. Lee’s net worth is RM50,000 only, which is less than half of ENW, he is a UAW.

Let’s calculate ours, which category do you belong to?

Simply, just divide your age by 10, and multiply it by your current income. This should give a rough estimate of your expected net worth should be.
