Aside from our love for food, Malaysians love to shop. With so many shopping malls scattered across the city, one might actually shop till you drop.

From buying clothes to getting your groceries, catching the latest movie on the screen, and (of course) eating, there are always things to do at the mall.

However, many might not be aware of the full value of shopping centres.

There is more to Malaysian shopping centres than just boutiques, supermarkets, cinemas, and restaurants.

1. Hair Salon

While many hair saloons have their own studio established in shop lots, there are a considerable number of hair salons in major shopping centres.

If you ever have the impulse to have a fresh cut, or even have your hair dyed blue, these saloons got your back.

2. Nail Polish Shop

Similar to hair salons, nail bars can also be found in shopping centres. These salons primarily offer nail care services such as manicures and pedicures.

Girls, when the day comes when there’s nothing to do at the mall, why not pay these nail bars a visit?

Manicure and pedicure offer many benefits. It helps keep one’s body hygiene clean as dead skin cells are removed to encourage new skin cell growths.

Furthermore, what better way to pamper yourself with a mani-pedi.

Fortunately, most shopping malls have their very own nail and hand spa centres. 

3. Facial and Beauty Shop

While you’re already pampering yourself, you might as well get your facial done, too!

Facial and beauty centres are usually the most low-key and elegant-looking shops in the entire shopping centre.

For instance, in One Utama, there’s VIYA’S Malaysia you should check out anytime soon!
