Delicious @ The Marc Residence

Tea for Two and Two for Tea, 50% off Traditional English Afternoon Tea Set @ Delicious. Bought this deal for only RM 34.70 instead of RM 59.90. Trying out another 3 tier dessert stand. A very nice and comfortable place for evening tea which starts from 3pm to 8pm. 


The parking will be at Marc Residence and we are given two hours of complimentary parking when dine in here. 


We can choose the dessert or cake of the day display at the counter and depends what are the choices that are available.

  • 3 Scones (Warm Scones with Preserves & Cream)
  • 6 Assortment of Finger Sandwiches
  • 2 Duck Confit in Filo Pastry
  • 2 Strawberry Chocolate Dip
  • 2 Handrolled Chocolate Truffles
  • 3 Rosemary & Cheese Cookies
  • Choice of 1 Slice of Cake or Dessert on Display
  • Choice of any 2 Cups of Tea / Coffee (Illy Coffee)

Black Forest in a glass.This is my favorite. Loves all the chocolate topping on the top and deep inside, there are chocolate cake, with sweet berries and cream and the bottom part is full of chocolates!
We get two scones only and its nice to dip with chocolate and the cream.The strawberry is very sweet and fresh. The rosemary cookies is abit weird taste for me. Chocolate truffles is my favorite.I am truly a chocolate lover and i hope they can give me refill of the chocolate dip. Yummy!

Finger Sandwiches and Duck Confit in Filo Pastry. The ingredients for the sandwiches are tuna, eggs, and smoked salmon with wheat bread and plain bread. The bread is not soft enough and i rate them only 5/10.
Ordered tea for two person and can be refilled.
Complimentary parking for two hours.Need to pay at Marc Residence in Concierge lobby area.
Cozy and quiet place with good customer services as well. I still prefer G Tower (The Lounge) for the 3 tier dessert.

Oloiya @ The Gardens

RM2.90 for Oloiya Dried Meat Bun (Dried Meat + Chicken Floss + Vegetables) @ Oloiya, The Gardens. I always pass by this place and wondering how good taste is this dried meat compare to other brand.

After i have tried it, i find that there is not much difference from what i have taste before.The portion (the bread and the dried meat ) is only small piece and the i even add more tomato sauce myself.The bread is not soft.In my opinion, those dried meat bun in pasar malam and morning market is much better than this.

COMEBUY OPENING SPECIAL] Quench Your Thirst This Xmas Week! With Any 2 Refreshing Taiwan Bubble Milk Tea For RM4.80 ONLY! @ ComeBuy Mid Valley. This deal is only redeemable during 23-31 Dec 2011. 


The location is at Midvalley Ground Floor (outside the Midvalley Mall). Just located beside Delicious. This voucher is only for beverages price range from RM 5.90 and below.


The concept of this deal is like having buy one free one promo on opening day. ComeBuy is famous in Taipei and now we can enjoy from different wide of beverages and juice to choose from.There are milk tea, green tea, black tea, cocoa, chocolate,juices and smoothies.

I have choosen Mango Yogurt Drink (Medium)  and Bubble Milk Tea (Large) without ice.If you want to add pearl for the juices , need to add another RM 1.

I rated this two drink as average drink compare to the beverages and milk tea i have try in Share tea @ Sungai Wang. 

The drinks are not too sweet. But the taste is just normal for me. Anyway now is the trend everywhere with lots of brand and beverages choices that advertise themselves as famous in Hong Kong and Taiwan.But the quality of the drink does matters.

So that's the email link. The last email is really offending and seems like blaming all to customers side.So what else can i say? The very last time which i still remember i can get full refund with any dissatisfaction but now there is no longer protection and guarantee to the food and services which i am going to experience.Just be smart next round! Good Luck to all!

No Such Thing As Full Refund

Thursday, December 15, 2011 2 Comments A+ a-

From this few months experience that i have encountered, mostly all online deals are not refundable.Those are My Deals, I Love Discount, Dealmates and WeBuy. Currently, the most impressive deals i can think of in terms of customer service is Jack Cow. But as you can see Groupon, they always publish in their website and even in newspaper that they guarantee customer will 100% promises for full refund and dissatisfaction.But i am not so sure how true it is .

Because i really lost confidence to purchase those online deals unless the deals is really worth the value and not too expensive.As i can imagine, if i am not satisfy with the food and services, i will have no where to get my rights and my complains to these online companies.They will require us to deal direct with the merchant. But what if merchant also cannot give us a full refund? They will insists and will just earn the profit.They will not accept our complains and there is nothing to be done.That is so far i have experience before and i am also really upset with the online companies (customer services dept) who doesn't pick up the call and check their email. Some even are rude when replying the email blaming us customers! Where is our rights?!

RM7 for Johor Laksa or Mee Rebus Johor + Cucur Pisang + Cash Back Card worth RM10 @ Heritage Food, Bangsar KL from WeBuy. We reach early at 11.30 am for our lunch and we are the only customer there. But to my dissapoinment again, they said the laksa johor is not delivered here yet , so they only have mee rebus. So i also ordered another side dish of toast bread for my little girl.To my shock they given me a overburn toast bread.I was really surprised ! This is how toast bread looks like? I ask them to give me a new toast bread instead. 

The mee rebus taste is just nice for me but the weird thing i observed is the gravy. To my horror, my husband just realised we are having a beef mee rebus. As we both are not supposed to take any beef, but we have no choice but to dig out all the beef meat. I never expect that in mee rebus they will put in the beef meat. 

We should have read the menu or ask the waitress at the first place. But it was also not written in the website deals or vouchers that this mee rebus contains beef meat. Not even the waitress to remind us or inform us on that!

The cucur udang is good and those are really big portion

[50% OFF] Delicious Traditional Nasi Lemak Special set meal @ Otak-Otak Place RM12.15 net instead of RM24.3 (HALAL) from Jack Cow. The above picture shown is the nasi lemak special with otak otak on top of it.

A very good combination.

BBQ Chicken Vegetarian Pau

Vanilla Ice -Cream with Strawberry Topping.This was served first before the main menu.Very weird arrangement.

Memorable childhood decoration being display.They also have cards on each table for us to spend our time while enjoying the delicious meals such as 'Old Maid & Happy Family' card which is all laminated and well protected.

Rak Thai @ The Gardens, Mid Valley

61% OFF Special Thai BBQ Chicken Set + 1 Iced Lime Mint + 1 Tub Tim Krob @ Rak Thai Gardens Midvalley for only RM10.90nett instead of RM27.80 from Mydeal. FYI, The service is really not pleasant. 

The food is really good and spicy.The above picture is the BBQ  Lemongrass Set: BBQ Lemongrass Chicken served with Som Tam. The chicken is juicy and not too spicy. The chicken is well marinated and the green stick is actually a 'Serai'.

La La Tom Yam Soup.This is the best dish i ever had.The portion is just nice for two person.The soup is really spicy and each La La tastes so good. It costs us only RM 10.80.

Ice Lime Mint Drink.Really cools down the spice.

Our dessert of the day. I have checked with the waitress but she said this is the right dessert served to us. But to my dissappointment, when i got back home and check again in the Mydeal website, i found out my dessert in the voucher should be as the following picture which is called Tub Tim Krob (Red Ruby).

So, i try to send letter to Mydeal to ask for clarification and whether i can get any refund. But they are very rude and blaming on customers instead of the merchant .In my opinion, merchant should ensure they serve the right food to customers and CUSTOMERS ARE ALWAYS RIGHT!. But since then i realise Mydeal no longer protecting customer rights. 

After all, i do love the food here. Reasonable price, thai cuisine and the environment is good.They really need to improve on their customer service and their spoken language to the customers. I had a hard time communicating with the staff there.

RM2.50 for Belgian Fries Regular with 1 dip/seasoning worth RM5.30 @ Pommes Frites Bistro, Sunway Pyramid PJ from Webuy.com.
Its a very good deal and i decided to take away for the fries. This place is located at Asian Avenue at the back row lane. 

They use fresh premium bintje potatos imported straight from Belgium and i saw the whole process whereby the fries are cut freshly from premium potatoes,They wash, peel, cut and freshly fried the fries.

  • 1 dip/ seasoning to choose from:.Since i cannot take beef, i choosen the first two choices.In my opinion, i really love the fries here compare to Ireland Potato.Even i reach home , the fries still tastes great!
  1. Remoulade - garlic, onion, mustard, mayonnaise, selery-recommended.Tasty!
  2. Chicken Bolognaise - Tomato paste just like in the spagethi sauce
  3. Poutine - Canadian Speciality. Beef gravy and mozarella cheese

Mantra Restaurant & Bar @ Sunway Pyramid

Thursday, November 10, 2011 0 Comments A+ a-

Pad Thai for only RM 9.90 instead of RM 18.20 @ Mantra , Sunway Pyramid from Dealmates. I have passed by this restaurant few times but i was wondering what food they served here.

This restaurant have nice decoration and i am attracted. So i decided to buy one voucher of this deal to try it out during Deepavali holiday. 

A very disappointing deal as i just discover another cheating merchant in the town and also With bad management of Dealmates i have encounter.

Pad Thai which look so different from the menu shown in the picture below and also much different from the Dealmates website. As you can see clearly, the prawn and beansprout is missing . 

It was so obvious that the menu is written the full ingredient what they will have in this Pad Thai. I query the waitress, but she answered me no such thing. They don't have prawns. 

What i can see and taste, is it just few slice of chicken. Which means this merchant have switch the ingredients hoping the customer won't notice that! I am speechless as i am trying to tell the waitress or the manager there, there should be prawns!

So i decided to write to Dealmates. Because other online deals accept customer complains to get back our full refund which i did before such as Jackcow, Webuy, and Groupon.

So, to my disappointment, Dealmates never reply my email. I have chase them for two weeks to get my reply and i have called them. They said will call me back. But nothing happen. I try to call few times only can get through! 

A guy name Eddie ( a very blur staff ), keep on asking me what is the complain about! I was wondering did he really check the email to find out before he keep on asking me the same question again and again.

So he said i need to wait again to check with their management. The result and reply is they have nothing to do with this. They have paid the merchant the money within 14 days ( which i don't see any of this policy or terms written in the website), and customer need to deal with merchant directly to get out full refund.

What customer service are they providing here? If they cannot protect customers, why should we support them ? Merchant are cheating nowadays. Even we argue there, no solutions , then who is going to help us? 

The online deal website are getting their profit but yet neglect the customer satisfaction. They never want to lend a helping hand to solve our problems and yet sending us email for survey how good their customer service is.  I will just rank it bad customer service ever after.!
