Tokyo Bust(ed) Express

Read Tricia's blog (a.k.a Vaingloriousyou) and saw a post regarding the bad experience her reader had experienced with Tokyo Bust Express which she had just advertised on. Damn poor thing cause she was just doing her job, which is to advertise.

Immediately, i messaged my friend who was working for the company as their marketing executive. I asked him what's wrong with the company, why like that? FYI, my friend was not incharge of e-marketing, but he told me he heard about this too and there's really some nasty comment on Tricia's blog post. So i went to click on the comment.

"Bad service."
"Pushy"
Sign package"
"Disappointed"
"Wait damn long"
"$7k"

These was the few tag that can be seen throughout the comment list. The first thing in my mind was "i knew it." To be honest, i got a job offer at this company as their marketing executive. Went to tokyo bust for my interview and the people there was really nice. And then one of the assistant passed me a file and got me to read about the Bottom Slim group. I flipped and there's a portion whereby it shows how they "appreciate" their staff for their hardwork. I got stunned. I text my friend,

"Hey, how come your company so generous?! Give $10k cash when this particular staff hit her personal sales target. And what?! Give Hermes bag and Chanel bag?! Are you kidding me?!?!"

Yup, don't be surprise. Staff receive rewards such as LV bag, Hermes Bag, big sum of cash as reward for their outstanding performance. That explains why the staff are so pushy about their package. People pay such a huge amount for the treatment, but the money they pay doesn't seem to justify.

I got a friend who had a $10K package with Bottom Slim and a $10K package with Tokyo Bust. She started off with Groupon and proceed with her "trial". Same thing happened, pushy sales had successfully got her to buy a $2k package (cut from $7K). She went for her first treatment at BS and was told that the machine is not really good, and ask her to pay a minimal price for an upgrade. So each session, they will ask her to upgrade and upgrade and upgrade and TADAH!!! Her package was now $10,000.

She was told that the slimming treatment was premium and guarantee no "re-bounce". After the first session, her left thigh look uneven (out of shape) and she cried. So she went back to BS and ask them to rectify the problem, and they did. Afterward, she went for a 4months break and gained more weight. She went back to BS for her treatment and questioned about her bounce back. They replied "Ohh, cause you have to come back regularly and control your diet etc..." Okay lah, quite acceptable, but then you shouldn't guarantee no bounce back from the beginning. After that, they introduced my friend to another more premier treatment and asked her to pay a few more thousand for that machine. My friend got so angry and she made a scene that day. She screamed at the therapist. Imagine, my friend already paid $10K for the slimming session, and you wanted her to add a few more thousand for some treatment that have no guarantee.

I think to myself, "LUCKY YOU ZOE!". She was approached as the blogger for Tokyo Bust initially, but because her charging was a little too steeeeeeeeep (define steep when you are giving Hermes bag for your staff, pffffttttt) so they decided on Tricia instead. But Tricia is damn innocent lah, so please don't scold her anymore.

I'm glad that i declined the job in the end. Am now happily attached to FotoHub where all the nice people works. :)

Went to Tokyo Bust Express on 15 Dec 2016 (Nex), was very skeptical as ive seen many Negative Reviews online.. But after my First Visit, i am impress.

My Experience with them was good. Personally i feel they provide very personalise service.

I was attended by one of their Staff, Melissa. She is very Warm & Friendly. Patiently explaining to me about the cause of my very saggy bust. Giving me different alternative to help with my condition. I actually don't feel that she is pushy. Well.. Maybe its a Voice, she speaks alittle faster, but i feel it might b in-born =). She was smiling throughout the consultation. Very attentive.

Im actually touched by her sincere approach. I actually bought a Trial Package from them. And looking forward for more treatments.

*Just My Personal View*
