At this moment, the beauty salon staff informed her, “The treatment purchased from the group-purchasing website does not include the specialized gel for the treatment. You can purchase it now at a discounted price of HK$1,000 instead of the original price of HK$1,500.” Mommy Onion was astonished and said, “But it was not mentioned on the website that I have to purchase the specialized gel!”

The staff insisted, “Without purchasing the specialized gel, the treatment cannot be conducted.” Without any other options, Mommy Onion purchased the gel eventually.
