云吞面 @ Pontian

On November 22, 2009, in Chinese, Life style, Life style | Food, by Kok mING

已经很多个周末没有到外面的食店吃午餐了。就在上个星期,终于有了机会到外面找吃的了!

我们来到了这家笨珍云面家!外国的朋友,不要被店名给骗了,他们可不是笨的哦!

店里的装潢不会特别,就像其他的kopitiam~

 

我们当然是吃了云吞面和叻沙咯~~ :grin:

招牌都写明了,不必选啦!

虽然价格比一般的来的贵,可是分量不会少,没有骗钱的感觉!:hahaha:

 

 

叻沙就属一般货色,没有什么惊喜可言。。。:happysigh:

云吞面就不同了,首先这家店的云吞面可是有辣味可以选择。对嗜辣的我来说真的是好啊!

第一口吃就已经觉得面条很有弹性。云吞面也不是很特别的,但是这一碗面真的是香滑可口,很容易让华人接受的味道!:goodjob:

吃到一半,我才发现原来是猪油让平凡的云吞面变得如此的美味!不错哦!

这里的炭烧咖啡也是值得一喝~~

  

 

想吃又不知道哪里,你留言给我吧。

我带你去,你请我吃就可以了~~ 哈哈

 

After a long time since the last family gathering, we decided to enjoy the buffet lunch at Noble House while my parents in law are in town.

We heard and read enough good reviews which saying how worth to have the buffet lunch with unlimited Peking Ducks. Also the mouth watering dishes such as Shark fin and Crispy Pork at Noble House.

After this tried… I am very sure I will not pay this much of money for this kind of food again… It was over-rated… way too much different from the others review…

Let’s start the show now!

The buffet start 11:30AM but I was told to arrive there 12PM… so we go in late and it was crowded when we arrive there.

Since we were late… I did not manage to shoot the interior because it was really crowded.

As you can see, majority of the food are deep-fried and a small Dim-Sum corner with some steamed food. If you are healthy eater, I believe this buffer is not suitable for you…

   

 

From most review, I learnt that the Peking Duck is unlimited supply and you can take as many as you wish. It is so true!

But before we can materialize our dream to have unlimited Peking Duck, it is to QUEUE! :hahaha:

 

 

I am disappointed because the Peking Duck was not tasty. It taste like oily sweet pancake…

 

 

The crispy pork was not nice at all… Most reviews said the fat melt in the mouth and the skin crispy like biscuit!

I can tell you… Any hawker stall can sell better food then this… :sadism:

 

The shark fin was the worst, weird taste and the texture like glue… got cheated … :cryrun:

 

I have tried most food except dim-sum because I was lazy to check on it after too many disappointments… However, the prawn salad and the lamb was notable. At least it is able to gives me a reason that this restaurant still serve something nice and tasty :happysigh:

 

 

 

 

Over RM50/person, lousy service (no one help to refill water and clean up)… not so tasty food…

I would not recommend you to go.

But if you are keen to try it out, go ahead and enjoy.

Until I blog the next entry. Happy commenting!

 

Affordable or A-force-able

On November 7, 2009, in English, General, My work, by Kok mING

Let’s not critic on my bad Mal-lish in naming this entry… I have something to share with you. This was happen two weeks ago, and until now, I still find it is hilarious.

Before we start, I have to explain to you about my role. As many of you know I am a person who handle the client engagement for example chit chat with them to find out what they want, prepare a quote / proposal and so on. My company (not my business) is a Software house… To simplify this, you can call me IT Sales-person and we start the interesting story-telling now.

A customer approach me a.k.a. the IT Sales-person to enquire a quotation for a application report customization. Without any delay, I reply with a quotation which is RM1,000. The customer was shocked and reply “Why so expensive?”. The customer start to challenge that the original report that we deliver to her was a piece of junk and why she has to pay for fixing the junk. I totally agree that we should not pay for junk! So I support her and request her to justify it. Sadly, she couldn’t. I couldn’t help her so I advise her to reconsider our quote.

Then she say, proceed with it and she will pay RM400… Ok… This is getting interesting. She wants the work to be completed but only pay 40% of the price? Immediately, I declined by saying that is not enough to cover the running cost and it will be a net loss for my company. Then the conversation start to be not-so-pleasant but I am generous enough to complete the work for her and to discuss the pricing later. But she is not agreeable to that and wanted to rebill me on the time she spent to speak with me… Now, let’s see who wants to deliver the work and who is trying to be ridiculous…

If you find something is expensive, you have 2 choices. Buy or Leave to another alternative. Simple as that.

Even that you own a piece of junk, you want to dispose it. You will still have to pay for the disposal fees, correct?

Again… apply the same situation on KFC Shrimp Stix . Can you tell KFC that your shrimp stix is only 20% of your advertising size, so I will only pay your 20% of the price? I believe the Uncle KFC will turn alive and dip you into the burning oil… :hahaha:

Another example, I am a very difficult customer for TMNET Streamyx. However, I still have to pay FULL subscription fees every month, otherwise they will terminate my account and charge me reconnection fees after I settle the outstanding bill! Yes! They terminate you and still charge you for reconnection… how ridiculous… furthermore the best effort basis is the worst in the world. I wish I have the power to demand but no…

You see, in a commercial world. We are the consumer, the best way to safe guard our benefit is to be a smart consumer. The provider can choose whether or not to deal with you too. So, there is nothing by force…

If the customer can set the price and the provide has to accept it. Then I will go to Japanese restaurant eat the abalone and salmon sashimi for RM1 / meal… because the restaurant are serving the dead corpses of fish without any cooking. I am so kind to go in and eat them all, save their money to dispose those junk too! :xd:

 

Hope you had a good laugh and able to find some learning points in this entry. :-)
