Substandard service & food @ Chicago Rib House!

Ok, I do not intend to bicker here but I just wanted to let out my steam!

Yesterday, hubby brought our son for a movie at Gurney Plaza and so after that it was dinner time. We decided to check out Chicago again this week despite our trip there last week as we really like the pork ribs. Of course, we ordered another plate of pork ribs but instead of half a rack we had full rack this time.

The service last evening was really bad. The restaurant was not that big and when we arrived, most of the tables were already half way eating so we thought we will not have to wait long... we were WRONG! We wated more than 30 minutes for our ribs and burger!

And when our ribs arrived, we were dismayed....

Can you believe that was a full rack of pork ribs????? Is that a pig or piglet???? Can't believe they served this as full rack!!!! We have to pay an additional of RM15 for that but it looked just like half rack to me! Worst, we waited so long and the ribs were so dried it almost chocked at my throat! Don't restaurants like these have some kind of standards on their food????

If you compared what we got last week for half rack looked more decent!

This is definitely one of the worst experiences we have had! I am not sure if we will return...

We used to eat at Cafe Cartel in Singapore and I dare to say at every different outlets within the island, I can get the same amount of ribs on my plate... which is definitely value for money! Why people can do it but our Malaysians' companies always failed in doing????

Not forgetting about their lousy service too. Since there were not that crowded we waited so long for the food to come. They have at least 7 waiting staff but most of the time these people are busy congregating at one corner chit-chatting and idle away instead of looking out for customers who needed to be serviced! I even have to go get my own ketchup from the counter!!!! bah!!!!!

That being said, I definitely don't need any apidexin and detoxufree72 to ditch those extra pounds I've gained from that meal as my anger already burnt them off!

I guess we will be back at Chilli's next round...

Our dream home...

...will definitely have a patio and not to mention one or two outdoor fireplaces! That was what I have told hubby about when we are discussing the subject the past few weeks. Though we still have yet to find a house or as the matter, a piece of land... there are still plenty of time to do further research of how to fix up in our future home.

Yesterday, we went to look at some of the flooring materials too so we can start to plan what to have and what not. I am also hoping to get some good deals on some home furnishing items so we can buy them and keep so by the time we move, we should have all the items to be placed in the house! Oh! How exciting!!!!

Less weddings this years?

Last years we had so many wedding invitations as it was touted as a very good year to tie the knots. However, I was too sick to attend any as I was pregger with my #2. My mother in law attended most of them since most are her relatives.

We attended my cousin's wedding beginning of this year and we have not receive any invitations since then. I guess there will be less wedding this year since it is the year of the Tiger? I don't really know though. So far we did not hear anyone from both sides of our families that there are any 'news' of anyone getting married! :P

More shopping to go!

Though we have been in KL for almost a week now but I have yet to really start my shopping. Instead, I have been meeting up with friends over the past few days. It was really nice to meet up with some of them as it has been a long time since we last met.

However, I do hope to start doing some shopping in the next few days as there are quite a bit of stuff I wish to get before we head back to Penang. So far I've only bought some bento stuff and nothing else. Hubby who is in Brazil at the moment is too busy to shop though I've asked him to get some good coffee for me.

Don't know if he'll have time to check out and buy silver bullion or not as his schedule is pretty tight. Heard that the price will be going up so it could be the right time to invest in some.

Double celebration @ Shogun 1U

Brought my parents to Shogun at 1U for a double Mother's and Father's Day celebration on yesterday. This was my 2nd time there and my parents' first. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves as this is the first time they tried Japanese buffet. Mom was exceptionally happy as she gets to eat her favorite cod and salmon fish in different cooking styles.

This time round I did not eat too much raw food as I am not sure if my tummy could take it or not as the previous time I got a bad diarrhea session after taking a few fresh oysters. Therefore, I only took a few slices of the sashimi of salmon, tako and tuna.

Some of the loots

We brought 2 big luggage and 2 hand carry for our Melbourne trip. On our way there it weight about 47kg for both the checked in luggage and the total was less than 60kg in total (check-in and hand carry). I did not intend to buy too many stuff since we did not planned to do much shopping.

However, things changed! We went for groceries shopping very often and that resulted in me buying more things than I was supposed to as I can't resist the temptation of not getting them!!!! Hubby was not too happy about my purchases but I managed to hide most of them from him until the very last day when we have to pack to go home! :P

And here are my loots... well, just half of them only!!!!

Unlimited supply of Uncle Toby's!!!!
