Lunch @ Hailam Kopitiam, 3 Two Square

Hailam Kopitiam opened its doors today at 3 Two Square, PJ. My colleagues and I went there today for lunch. There is a 10% discount for the opening and it was crowded.

I ordered the Chicken Chop with black pepper sauce and kopi peng. I like the taste of the chicken chop and the coffee, to me it is better than Old Town's.

Since it is the start of business, the service was not good.

There was one order for eight of us. But the food came one at a time. Yes, one food dish, one drink, one food etc etc you get the idea. Other customers who came in later, got their food earlier than us. After much complain to the waiters, waitresses and the 'bosses', out food finally came, one at a time, over a period of 1 hour. :-(

They need time to settle down and get themselves organized. Don't take too long, or not your customers will move on.

Its my first time patronizing Hailam kopitiam. I would usually go to Old Town Kopitiam as they are everywhere.

Now there are 3 kopitiams here in 3 Two Square, Old Town, Pappa Rich and Hailam. More choices for us.

There is no picture of the food, I just dug in when my food came. I was so hungry.

Lunch: Fei Por Curry Mee Restaurant, Taman Connaught

Last Sunday's lunch after church. We had noodles in Taman Connaught on the way home, before our trip to Sepang.

Fei Por Curry Mee is located in Taman Connaught. If you are driving on the East-West link towards Kajang, it is on the left hand side just before the BHP Petrol station.

This restaurant was recommended by brother CK and Silas.

Ashley ate the fish paste noodle...

...while Marilyn and I had the curry mee.

Tasted good for a non curry eater like me.

CDM Swallowed My ATM Card

This morning as I was going about depositing cash into the Cash Deposit Machine (CDM) at Maybank, SeaPark, the machine showed a Windows error message than it went Out of Service, with my ATM card still inside its belly.

I called the Customer Service and was told that I could collect the card after 8:45AM when the branch is opened for business. Requested them to deactivate my card.

Went to the bank during lunch and was told the CDM machine has not yet been opened for the day. Was told to go for lunch and they will call me once the card has been retrieved.

Right after lunch, I received a call to collect my card. All this within 1 hour. I also had to fill up a form to re-activate my card.

My thanks to the bank officer who helped me.

Family Day: MovieDisney's UP

My family watched Disney's UP last Saturday.

There was no UP posters on ground level, so I took a picture of the next movie weplan to watch G-Force.
