is it necessary to give nric no when you go for massage?

Postby 12mum » Tue Mar 11, 2014 5:37 pm

Went for foot massage at a popular massage place near beauty world.

Was asked to write name n nric no on a book. Was told this is regulation set by ministry for all massage places n spa. Which ministry staff doesnt know.

See the pages were filled with names n nric nos. Not comfortable with providing my details so left.

Staff said even go for spa also need to do the same.

Is this true :?

I certainly never had to. Normally contact number is sufficient.

Yet I see pages ofname + nric nos.+ time in/out and amt charged.

It is a decent place in operation for many years.

i had to do the same at chinatown massage place. they hv very good masseuses there. i asked them before why there is a need to write nric and they said police will spot-check. i think it is to ensure they are not doing hanky-panky stuff?
