I don't like Breeks, Queensbay

It's Christmas Eve and my workmates (including bosses) decided to have a nice sumptious lunch at queensbay.
We chose Breeks.
Overall, the food in Breeks is not too bad.
However, the service and quality of food really getting BAD!.

Rating (1 bad - 10 good) : I'd give 3... teruk la!!

1. The chicken pattie had so little spagetti (it's just not standard)
2. The Xmas set lunch did not come with the soup. I highlighted to them after the desert and they insisted that it's a set that they needed to serve us that as well. THE "snobbish' manager decided to just give a 10% discount on the xmas set lunch since it was late and I dont' want the soup anymore. How could that be?

Btw, Xmas set was RM32.90. NOT cheap! I think Friday's 3 course meal is WAYY better!

Is this what we call "customer service?"
Shouldn't they compensate us back with something?
WHY am I paying for the mistakes they made?
Shame on them!
Even McDonalds could do better (yes, I always loved McD even though the burgers have low nutrition value)
3. Service is rather slow.. (very, poor.. . really no standard)
4. The ice blended crushed ice is terrible. I think the blender is not functioning well. For our sake, COME ON..... INVEST a new one!
5. Ice cream is cheapo ice cream. I think Nestle taste better.
I love nestle. I wish to work there some day.


So far, I've banned the places in Queensbay:
1. Pastasia - they didn't deduct 10% for citibankers
2. Paddington House of Pancakes - they mixed up our orders
3. Breeks - they forgot our soup!!!!!!!

DUHHHH!! Penang's service line sucks!
so sia-soi!!

What's the Difference between 'Net' and "Nett"

Since it's part of my group's job to publish daily billings report to the management, our Director (from US) pinpointed that we should fix the spelling of 'nett billings' to 'net billings'.
My colleauge was looking at google, trying to understand the 'right' spelling to be used.

I finally checked it from Wikipedia, and found that 'nett' is BRITISH and 'net' is AMERICAN.
No wonder he's offended to fix it to 'net'!
C'mon. I'm in an american MNC, I should be more sensitive towards this.

Nyonya Willow is now at Arena Curve

Penang is indeed a food haven, where both tourists and locals are blessed with many good foods. When it comes to Peranakan or rather, Nyonya food, we could never forget Penang..... aside from Malacca and Singapore.

Nyonya Willow used to be located in a home at Sungai Tiram but now it's currently moved to Arena Curve. Getting there is a little tricky as the parking space around Olive Tree hotel is usually full, thus I'd recommend to park inside the Arena curve where the entrance is situated opposite d'piazza.  I personally find that it's now situated in a more strategic place, as it's easily accessible and nearer to my work place.

As it was on a usual weekday lunch, we ordered a few dishes like jiu hu char (RM14) , lor bak (RM16), kapitan chicken (RM16), pork leg vinegar (RM18), perut ikan (RM18) and babi ponteh (RM16). I'd recommend the kapitan chicken and perut ikan, as well as their gulai tumis (I tried it earlier in my previous visit).

Traveling to the Southern Thailand Border - Dannok

It's been a while since I've gotten my passport stamped, thus, I thought I could do a day trip at the southern Thailand border. Being a frequent traveler to Thailand, I've always booked a van service to take me to the border. This time, it's really my first time trying out going to the border by foot.

It wasn't a good day for me as I forgotten to bring my umbrella.
Thus, I bought a not-so-nice one that day.
Moreover exchange rate is really bad. It's like 8.30 rate.
Then, I didn't know how to get the immigration form. So i chose the easier way to go to the shop and get it printed out (I later found out from my next trip that i can walk into the office to get one)

I started my walk along the shops to take a look at clothes, food, and also I bought a floor mat (funny, i thought it was nice). Also, not forgetting 7-11 for the cold drinks.
The weather was really crazy that I stopped at McD for free wifi and aircon, and the samurai pork burger.

 Seriously, tahpau…
