I decided to try Mr. Tan for the first time since I was nearby on the 2nd day of CNY. He took my booking but later found out he actually came to the shop just for my appointment. Initially asked for 1.5hrs but decided to change to 2hrs since I am the only booking of the day. I didnt expect anything due to the mixed reviews -went with an open mind.
The place is a shop front, but I entered from the back door as he didnt open the shutter. There was a shared toilet with the shop next door, I think it's a spa, didnt pay much attention - so no showers before/after massage. I was greeting by Mr. Tan - pleasant looking and well build, late 40s I think. I was a little sweaty due to the afternoon heat but he didnt mind and said will wipe me down with towel. So I went nude and lay down comfortably on the massage bed. His strength is very suitable for me, on the harder side, and very accommodating as I ask him to spend more time on my lower back.
He did ask questions as other reviews mentioned but I actually dont mind and answered all his questions and during the chat, I learnt that his questions are all for the purpose of understanding and satisfying his customers. For example, he ask how I know about him and if its from BW, he will know the customer probably expect more sensual + other services. So you should really let him know if you want a pure and good massage from the beginning and not just keep quiet acting saint - he cannot read your mind!
I must say that one man's meat is really another man's poison! For me, I totally enjoyed his good massage and will go back to him soon. Try to know!
