    Valentine's day @ Jogoya

    Had dinner in Jogoya with my family members on Valentine's day, without dear again, he was working. We have made our reservation 3 weeks in advance. We reserved a table for 9 persons @ 7pm. At 7pm, we went to the counter and informed them that we will be late for 10 minutes as my parents were late. The gal said ok. Then when my parents arrived, we went to the counter again, but we need to re-queue and there were quite a number of customers in front of us. So, we waited for like 10 minutes.
    When it was our turn, it was around 7.20pm. You know what the guy said? Sorry your reservation is 7pm, you are late, we have to cancel your reservation.
    Of cos we shoot back lah, I said:" We came on time, we informed that gal that we will be 10 minutes late, she said ok." Then the guy started to speak in foreign language with his colleague, and showed his "not syiok" expression to us. But we don't care, we made the reservation and we informed them we will be late. They can't cancel our reservation, right? He had no choice, but to give us a table. In fact, there are some customers who did not make any reservation, but came early, and the stuff promised to put them under waiting list. That's why they tried to cancel our table, and give it to those who were under waiting list. This is not fair for those who called few weeks in advance, came all the way far town, right? They should call the customers who are late, ask them whether they are coming, or inform them before the reservation is being canceled.

    Okay, photos.....


    Kyanne & me.
    We were made from the same factory, why is she so much taller than me?
    Eldest always shortest?
    Bought 2 pairs of CROCS for dear, CROCS in Malaysia only give ugly plastic bag, unlike last year I got nice paper bag when I bought it from Singapore.
    So, I look like "siao po" carrying 2 pairs of CROCS with that 2 ugly plastic bags and walking around in Pavilion!


    With Vicky.
    Again, taller than me.
    I think I gained weight after CNY. Look at my fat arms!!!


    With Lily, same height but I still look shorter, aiks...


    The 4 of us...
    Our parents' Bao Beis.....


    Again... how? do we look alike? Not many photos were taken as we were concentrating on eating only.


    My appetizer, main course and dessert in Jogoya. I had 9 of them. GENG mou?


    I ate so much food that day. Shark fin soup, sushi, sashimi, double boiled soup, bbq fish, meat, lots of prawns, steam fish, one piece of cheese cake, one pieces of choc cake, chinese herbal jelly, few scoops of ice cream. For drinks, I had at least 3 glasses of red wine, and 3 more glasses of cocktail. I hope what I have eaten that day worth what I have paid for...... If not, rugi ma...
    In fact, I should name this post title something like "How a cheapskate eat in Jogoya..." which I think can attract more hits for my blog :P

    foongpc said...

    Eh, why so few shots on the food? I love Jogoya and is planning to go there again sometime next month.

    Regarding the queue at the counter, why don't one of you go in first? Then when your parents arrive, they can join in. No need to re-queue or hve your reservation cancalled : )

    Last time I was there from 6pm till 11pm. No one shooed us out! LOL!
