05.11.2012 | 好貴嘢飲

[Volume 7 Issue 11, #1589]
出面賣啲嘢真係越嚟越貴, 尤其係嘢飲, 本來就係好低成本嘅嘢, 但係偏偏就可以賣到差不多嘢食嘅價錢, 有的候都真係寧願唔叫嘢飲嘢.. 餐廳cafe啲嘢飲唔講啦, 求其收你十蚊八蚊係等閒事.. 依家就連茶室一杯溝水溝到淡到冇人有嘅嘢飲, 都可以面不改容收你兩蚊!! 搞到(孤寒嘅)我俾錢都俾得肉赤啦, 呢個係咩矜貴世界呀?? @.@"
things out there are being sold more and more expensive, especially drinks that are always at a very low cost, but can be charged at almost the price of food, that's why sometimes I rather not order drinks when dining outside.. leave aside restaurants and cafes that can easily charge you RM10 for a cup of drink, now even the coffee shops are charging you RM2 for drinks so diluted that they are almost tasteless!! really make (the stingy) me feel so unwilling to pay for that, what an expensive world!! @.@"

    8. Good morning SK and all! Yes, drinks nowadays are rather expensive. I don't usually order any drinks. I prefer to drink when I get home after the meal. But I don't mind ice-kacang or so.

      I think he will resign for good when November month come...
      this is what he said..

      Delete
    2. Oppa said he'll be busy starting November. Don't know what is he up to? Maybe he goes sulking in the corner, because SP and TM always shoo him away whenever they see him here. Poor thing~

      Delete
    3. As for me, November is a very busy month but I try to come and visit. Now I got to drink first before I go to work.

      Delete
    4. Who's looking for me? Miss me, is it? November, not busy lah!!! Already No. 1, step aside and give others the chance mah. December, I will be away...so you all will not see me around much perhaps.

  3. Depending on the outlet, sometimes I'm guilty of buying bottled water from supermarket first before going to makan.

    Some outlets now dun even want to serve plain water in glass. I guess not enough untung for them. They force patrons to buy marked-up bottled mineral water from them instead. :-S

    They get more profits with the drinks than the food, kot. ):

    2. there are a lot of restaurant that charge FOC for plain hot water..
      normally if I dine in restaurant, me and my wife will order warm water..

      Delete
    3. Grr...there was one restaurant that charges RM1 for a glass of plain water!!! Plain water you know....for me it's like PAIN water lor to my purse.

      But some restaurant say kenot bring own drinks leh....usually i hentam and bring also la. After all got buy food from them mah. Not as if sit there and never buy from them
      Now more and ore restaurant charging for plain water leh. Min 20sen

      Delete
    4. Once I ordered carrot juice as I was thirsty. I drank up all and guess what's down at the bottom of the glass? Black thingy was there! I swear that I will never take their drinks anymore.

      Delete
    5. hahaha ,,,,Wenn, I kena too. Mine one was Katt Chai Shuin mui drinks....got baby katt chat(lipas) floating on the drink. At first i thought it was the asamboi powder but see properly its lipas. Since then I dare not order that drink from that particular shop. Think maybe the lipas go makan the asamboi or what...yuck

  4. Sk next time bring your own water bottle when go out to eat..
    like when I go for lunch I normally order a chinese tea or herbal tea..

    1. But very mah farn la if bring own water bottle. Sometimes some outlet dont let leh unless it's small kid la.

      Me also usually order chinese tea. But even chinese tea I suspected some shop "recycle" the tea leaves.

      Delete
    2. SP, I kind of agreeing with you. I either BYOB or order Chinese tea, usually ony RM0.40 ( the most expensive charge in Taiping) or I rather go thirsty, then returning to office only drink plain water.

      First, I can save money, second I can cut down in taking sugary water.

      Anyway, so far Taiping kopitiams are still ok. Not so expensive la!



      Delete
    3. But my girl will bring her own water bottle. So we share. Prefer to drink own water than consuming those dirty water. Do you know they might use tap water?

      Delete
    4. What is BYOB??? Bring Your Own BOOBS!

      Delete
    5. SP always bring his man-boob around what! LOL

      Tap water? That's why order hot water as opposed to air suam. Hot water sure kena masak first, right? ;)

      If I go Japanese outlets, sure order ocha. Some stupid outlets charges RM2 for a refillable ocha but man, the tea is so diluted, the drink is not green anymore. :(

      Delete
    6. Payung Cafe in Sibu, best lah!!! Big glasses ice-cold water FREE OF CHARGE and can ask for refill again and again... Hehehehehe!!!! Secret Garden here also free... Other cafes...50 sen - RM1.00...and one RM2.00, reverse osmosis drinking water...one glass, plus ice, not even half a small bottle!!! Tsk! Tsk!

    7. actually now my wife also practice bring your own boobs .. kakakaka ..
      we don't care whether the waitress saw our own drink or not.. just hemtam only..

      Delete
    8. SP, your wife BYOB, so you will free flow of milk to drink eh! Good for you la!

      Delete
  5. I agree with SK.
    sometime the drink is very diluted..

    1. I don't mind the coffee from Old town white coffee. But I usually don't drink coffee. I only love ice kacang or cendol.

  7. Aiks?! After one and a half hour, only HHBC members show up? Where's the rest?

    I was caught up in the Big Cheese's room after leaving 3 comments above. No chance to read the content yet.... reading now.







    SK's post is about diluted drinks, hahaha! I'm staying in a small town here, seldom go to chain restaurants which serve RM10 drink per glass. Usually go to kopitiam or hawker center to order herbal drinks prized at RM1. Some shops serve diluted ones, some generous taukes serve tastier drinks.

  8. Selamat Pagi..very usual for Bananaz when in kopitiam would go for a cuppa cham after meals. If in restaurant would opt for plain water & not Chinese tea coz read lots of stories regarding recycled tea leaves with all the coloring

    1. No point paying so much for diluted drink. Better bring our very own can drinks. They could charge double for any kind of can drinks too.

      Delete
    2. I like going to places where they'll just put a glass of water in front of you without us asking for it. That's service. :)

      Delete
    3. some restaurant offers sky juice when we just sit down. I like that kind of service too. Then we don't need to order drinks anymore.

      Delete
    4. Usually hotels will offer sky juice for free.

    If drinks are worth the price why not? its better to spend money for such products than vices

    ReplyDelete
