[Volume 9 Issue 5, #1890]
或者我係後知後覺, 不過我係早幾日先知道原來麥當當已經唔再俾大家免費添汽水喇, 每添一次就承惠五毫子.. 其實對我而論都冇咩大不了, 因為我真係好少可添飲嘅.. 或者對習慣搵著數嘅朋友就係一個噩耗, 因為好多人都買一杯(不停添)飲一成日, 或者收埋隻杯等下一次再去就有免費汽水飲.. 我個人其實唔反對麥當當咁做喎, 因為很多「精明」人都只係識得搵著數, 而最終變成侵犯權益.. 不過可能突然間改變好多人接受唔到, 不如就免費添飲一次, 之後喺隻紙杯上做返個(不能消滅的)記號?? 本人一個小小建議.. 不過我更加希望見到同樣嘅行動用于茄汁辣椒醬上囉.. 或者俾大家兩包免費嘅, 如果再要多啲就每包一毫子售出.. 事關實在見得太多被免費醬汁縱壞晒嘅顧客, 刻意浪費不特止, 仲要不屑一切.. 請學習茄汁辣椒醬點薯條, 唔係薯條送茄汁辣椒醬, 如果可以喜愛食物原有味道就更加好啦, 唔係食乜叉都要點辣椒醬嘛!! 有免費嘢大家就理所當然駛到盡, 要俾錢先識得節省同珍惜.. 人呀, 馬來西亞人!!
maybe i'm slow but i just realized couple of days ago that there is no more free refill for carbonated drinks at MacRonald, instead you pay 50-sen for every refill.. okay, not a big deal to me as i don't usually go for refills.. probably a frustrating news for people who always take advantage of the free refill, they buy a small cup and stay in there for one whole day, or keep the cup for free drinks on their next visits.. i am not against this act from MacRonald, because i find many "smart" people take advantage of their privileges and end up abusing the rights.. but perhaps such an abrupt change is unacceptable to pampered customers, how about something like one free refill and then have an untempered-able indication on the cup?? just my humble suggestion.. but seriously, i would like to see the same thing applied to ketchup and chili sauce, maybe 10-sen per sachet after the first two free sachets?? i have seen too many customers pampered with free sauce, who always create deliberate wastage yet not cared at all.. learn to just dip your fries with sauce and not soak them in as if you need fries to go with (drinking) your sauce, or better still love food on their own tastes, you do not need chili sauce for everything lah!! when given for free, things are often taken for granted but if asked to pay, things are surely appreciated.. humans, Malaysians!!

      So far after I finsihed my burger and fries, I can't finish the cup of the soft drink too.I usually pour half of it to my friend's who already finish half of it, especially guys colleague.

      Delete
    3. People always take a lot of sauce mah, since it's free and lazy to walk for the second round, so just take a lot at once, but never think of how they can't finish them?? Then it gonna be waste lo!!! Some people really like fries go with (drinking) sauce one, my eldest nephew is number 1, actually I found too much ketchup is almost cover the fries taste already!!!

    4. Good morning Xiao Ying


      LOL...yea some cannot finish cup especially the tall ones.

      I like the free refill coz can sit there do work leh...free wifi mah...ahem ahem...maybe soon no more free wifi kot? sit one hour charge RM1. kih kih..

      Still free refill at 50 sen still better than having to go and buy one more cup at full price RM3 RM4 leh. Some more how many times can ones refill...the most is 2-3 times.

      Normally i buy a big one and share with j then when habis refill

      Delete
    5. Huh? So if they charge for Rm1 per hour for the wifi, will you still using it?

      Usually I buy the smallest one la, can straighten myself not to drink so much soft drinks mah!!!

      Delete
    6. Ahem....will go see if got cheaper option or not lo.

      Usually I will buy the set meal. Large size coz can share with J lo. Drink usually will refill 2-3 times lo. The last time will usually is to go.

      Delete
    7. Ho, if hey charge the wifi sure people will complain non stop lo! Even share it out at social media sites!!

    8. Hayley - wifi not bad in mcd .... I like the speed. They might be showing live world cup football matches too next month.

      Oh, world cup matches, sure showing one la! Normal days I also see them showing already...

      Delete
  2. Morning ! I saw this ads too and actually I was thinking how come McD can be so not generous at all. Hahaha....Don't get me wrong. I don't always go for the refills and I hardly have soft drinks. But to me, free refills on soft drinks is just a way to say thank you to the customers ma.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What ? bring back the old paper cup just to get free refills. That's too much already. haha....and it is so 'cheap' to be doing so. Maybe your suggestion should be used by McD to put a mark on the cups so customers can get 1 or 2 free refills.

      Delete
    2. I kinda agree that when things are given out FREE, people won't treasured it. But if need to PAY, people will be thinking twice before they do it.

      Delete
    3. Usually, I only take a bit of their cilli sauce because I also prefer original taste. I also taught my kids to press a little bit of tomato sauces on the saucers. Not to waste and make sure they finished the sauce before taking more. U know, kids ma....they like to press the dispenser, so cannot let them abuse it.

      Delete
    4. I saw before ppl taking advantages on the free creamers and sugars. Terrible hor..... those things are not expensive at all....buy 1 pack can use for so long. I wonder why such people are so cheapo. Maybe McD should put a speaker around and if got ppl taking advantages, then announced loudly so that person will be embarrassed. haha

      Delete
    5. MUAHAHAHA.....mNhL, your idea is funny but is quite true also make them feel how embarrasing they are. So next time this kind of people won't feel like walk in the shop jor... True True...

      Delete
    6. Hmm....maybe coz customer abuse the generousity lo. Generous also have a limit to what extend . Some will ask for refill but after drink one or two sips then leave it coz already full.

      Delete
    7. Cili sauce i feel it's such waste when they give those tiny plates will go and play and press press press. The whole place become messy . and also We wont know how clean are those plastic plates. Some fell on the floor and just pick up put back...some people hand touch and touch...those hand duno got korek hidung or what before they touch those plates.




      Maybe they should give tomato and chili sauce like when people tapau. Just give two sachets. And any additional pay 10 sen as what SK suggested.

      Delete
    8. Somehow my kids will volunteer to take the chilli. Yes, can picit picit...

      Delete
    9. mNhL, ya la free refills means appreciation to the customers but then hor, not everybody think like that. Some just won't appreciate and simply waste the drinks....
      Hmm think out of the box a bit, may be McD management also don't want us to drink too much carbonated drinks, since obesity issue is getting higher in our country! :p

      Delete
    10. For me, I will take a plate of chili sauce for myself, one plate is ngam ngam hou, I can finish all.
      I don't take ketchup too, just feel the taste is plain (only got sweet taste). Prefer chili sauce cause it's spicy, got a bit ummph! xD

      Delete
    11. Kampung Koh chilli lagi best !!

    12. my parents' favourite cilli sauce - kampung koh !

    13. mNhL - dip it with seafood very nice !! Shiok !

      Delete
    14. Haha yea, kampung koh chili go best with almost anything! Deep fried stuff like prawn fritters, fish, bak kean, siew bak and more!! Very spicy also, very chi kek!

      Delete
    15. Chris and Hayley - High 5! I take Kampung Koh chili sauce with my Instant noodle lor... superb delicious. and hor I even dip it with my MIL homemade yam cake... Ichiban. McD chili sauce also spicy if dip too much... chi kek also werd. Sometimes, those staff who is taking order always like to give ketchup more than chili... Because they know ketchup " mou yan hao" - no one wants it.

      Delete
    16. That day a few crazy colleague (and I) were driving thru McD, coz somebody missed lunch (his order never came), so after lunch, we drove thru to McD to get this joker his meal.. The crazy driver placed his order, then when he collected the order, he asked for a mini Coke (free), and the fella really gave us a cup of mini Coke wor..

      Delete
    17. Princess Ribbon, is the bill more than rm20? then sometimes McD will give free things one if the single bill is aboce rm20... I guess so.

      Delete
    18. Less than RM20 leh.. Yeah, I know which one you talking about.. The car sticker thingy rite?

      Delete
  3. Morning Morning everyone, see I told you all ady lor. Refill need to pay RM0.50cents....For me is a not big deal too..Cos I hardly can finish my regular cup's of soft drink anyway, same like 小影. If you're mentioning about the chili sauce and ketchup, yeah people take it for granted. For those who wasted it should pay for it right? Probably, this MacRonald management need to set a few rules and regulation. I set of Worth Lunch Meal only eligible to have 3 sachets of sauce - 2 chili and 1 ketchup (or the either way). If customer asks for extra then need to pay.

    1. I will come back to tell my nenek moyang story how people take advantages at these kind of fast food chain... Very teruk one...until you tak boleh tahan wanna slap their face..

    2. Angeline - however, I think it's a good measure to control the folks la. 50 cents per cup not expensive for those who really need another cup. How about kopi ?

      Delete
    3. It is quite cheap for another cup at just 50sen. Last time they made nothing and now they make 50 sen!

      Delete
    4. Yea, like I said, it's reasonable la! A can of Coke already cost almost RM 2 (or higher?) now lo!
      Plus, how many glasses can one drink right? I guess maximum refill times if just 3 times only la!

      Delete
    5. So let say we refill 3 times, that also cost RM 1.50 only, still cheaper than a can size!

      Delete
    6. Refill 3 times? Can drink that much or not? Serious, because it's so cheap then drink so much...it's not good to drink that much la....but if say buy a cup the share with others refill 3 times can la!!! If a single person drink that much because it's then better don't do so la...later diabetes cannot be heal!!!

      Delete
    7. Princess Ribbon may be a glutton, but when it comes to Coke or refil (even in Chilis when I order bottomless drinks), I always cannot refill much leh.. Maybe maximum 2x only.. Although kiasu & kiasi wana drink a lot coz already paid right, but last last, cannot wor.. Tummy cannot fill liao..

      Delete
    8. Ok Ok I have time to comment now... phew! meeting and meeting, run here and there chasing for directors to approve this and that...tired! Long marathon in the office from yesterday until today...
      Come back to the topic. These are those scenarios I've seen during my teeanage time and observed recently. Yes, MacDonald was my time, like to hang around there almost every weekend.

      #1: This group of students, order their MacDonald, request for more sauce even pepper and salt. Paid and seated. Pour out the fries on trays, tear each sachets of salt and pepper and sprinkle all over the fries... then the sauce... very messy look... but hor they can't even finish all of that.. Such a waste right. They are not only waste MacDonald's items but waste their parents money also..

      #2: There are this few boys order coke and fries only..but alot of sachets of salt... I don't know why?.Then I noticed how they eat their MacDonalds with salt. OMG!!! So salty they r not scared of affected their kidney lor...Sometimes they waste the salt just to follow the trend... They add salt in their coke. and sprinkle so much of salt on the fries... really chi sin.

      #3: Actually the refill of 50cents is a really a small sum compared to just purchase a whole cup of coke at MacDonald right? People not only supply you food but the money you include aircond, toilets, watching tv and also you can serve the Internet leh... People always take advantage on all this matter. People are sellfish and greedy too. Chili sauce and ketchup are free flow too actually... how much you need you take... MacDonald no control over this item. But hor don;t waste the food and some even make dirty the places too...Sometimes consideration is very important lor...Don;t just think ourself but think of others too

      Delete
    9. Hopefully if they impose that 10cents per sachet...good too. At least they are more aware and not simply take for their own advantages hor. Come to think of it... 10cents ok werd...

      Delete
  4. Good morning SK and everyone... Oh, they used to have free refill at MacDonald...

    4. Good morning Sharon.\


      ahem ahem....talking about me ka? LOL. Me one of those who ordered a drink and sit whole day la. :p

    5. Starbucks is a good place for people to lay golden eggs! It is like that even in overseas and I do that often! Muahahahaha
      Nearby my home, you can see students and teachers using their long tables to do revisions! We can borrow their place to do tuitions, MLM and crap talks. What for rent a shop/office?

      Delete
    6. Haha yea, Starbucks la, fast food chains, even Chatime is the same, people can sit there from morning til afternoon one.
      I wander around these places too but the longest I can sit in it is just 2 hours, okay may be sometimes 3.
      TM, lay golden eggs? Haha, so funny la your description!

      Delete
    7. Watched from applesharpdaily news before, they said that most of those people purposely sit at Starbucks for check in on FB and what and what social media to show off to their friend as they can spend "that much" for a drinks!!! But sometimes people just check in never think that much, so depends on how others look at it la!!! And some even sit there for hours for the free wifi but not order anything lo!!!

      Delete
    8. So Sharon, SG got refill soft drinks policy or not? FOC or have to pay?... I think SG has more variety of fast food chain right... From economic to high end ones also got. So everywere also crowded with people one...

      Delete
    9. Not just McD, preciously Subway and Burger King also have refills leh.. But they discontinued liao now of coz.. The other day I went to Citta Mall to have Nandos.. Nandos also have refills, but their price is a bit on the high side.. RM6.90 for a drink (or was it RM5.90)?

      Delete
    10. Even pizza hut also got refill - coke only... I have no diea whether they still have it now.

      Delete
  5. No, thank you, you all can drink all you want! I had one of those drinks...and now, I am down with a terrible cough - coughing myself inside out, so vigorously that I would end up with a six-pack very very soon...

    1. ...and those carbonated drinks = massive sugar overload....and I've heard all those nightmare stories about drinking Coke. Shudders!!!

      Delete
    2. Ya...my friend shared on Facebook - no more free refills.

      If I go to such places, which is very rare, I'd usually go for iced lemon tea...or orange juice...and I would not want a refill - so big the paper cup, can hardly finish.

      Btw, do you people ask them not to put ice cubes so you will get more of the drink you're having? I've seen people doing that.

      Delete
    3. I once saw a customer - the staff was already filling the cup...and then he said he did not want ice. The staff just poured it all away...to grant his wish. Say it early lah...but obviously, not towkay, the staff did not mind - more where the drink came from. Hehehehehe!!!!

      Delete
    4. STP -these are cheap drinks ... just water and sugar. The staff can't be bother la unless they pour it straight out from the can. Then, it's a different story . lol

      Delete
    5. When there is water rationing the outlets poiur from the bottles. Maybe from there they noticed so much wastage la. Hence no free refill for soft drinks. No matter what still 50 sens per cup not that expensive la. Still okay la

      Delete
    6. Dont want ice cube coz want more drink? Hmm...never thought of that.

      I was thinking that people dont want ice cube coz it will dilute the drink. Coz if am not mistaken the soft drink from the machine already campur with sugar water or something like that. saw those machine when they open up there is a compartment for water.

      Sometimes when I drink and taste the coke tasteless like drinking water I will go to the counter then they open the machine and check...said something about no more coke ...then they did something and it become ok.

      Maybe due to recent water rationing...the machoine cannot work. staffs have to pour from bottles, they realised they used so much soft drinks. so now no more free refill la. Charge 50 sen per cup...still better than buy another cup la.

      I wonder next step would they say no drink sharing or not

      Delete
    7. Worse is later they go back and ask for ice cube some more!!!

      They do that at the coffee shops - iced, more expensive plus less of the drink...so they order hot. After served, they will ask for ice cubes.... Clever, some people.

    8. Coffee Bean - all-day breakfast...you can have all the coffee you want, can refill...but one giant cup, more than enough liao lor. How to drink so much?

    9. Coffee all day? err...can say no thank you ah. cannot have too much coffee even if it is free refill leh. Later not only cannot sleep at night also pimple will pop out leh

      Hmm ...maybe that is why McD only no free refills for soft drinks but not cofffee. Coffee is still free whole day i think. Not many know. Most think free refill for soft drinks only.

      Delete
    10. Yeah, also cannot drink coffee all-day. Most is refill two cups,depends how big is it and how 'kao' is it. If too kao like esprresso, better don't refill else kena heart attack! hahah..

    14. I always order my Milo without ice leh when I Order from McD.. FYI I will usually have one double cheeseburger regular meal and ala carte chicken nuggets, with drinks exchanged to Milo (without ice), with a fee - RM1.50.. I said without ice coz the Milo itself already cold leh.. Add ice somemore later diluted, not nice..

      Delete

      Eh, call me jakun, first time I took Malindo leh.. The plane ahh, got “kipas” one, looks like old fashioned type of plane, hehehe..

      Then ahh, reached JB (our factory is in JB) at 8.30am lor.. Training started from 9am-5pm.. But we left at 4.30pm la, coz flight back to Subang was 6.10pm..

      Touched down Subang airport at 7.10pm, reached office around 7.45pm, then it was raining cats & dogs, jam, flood and all.. Reached home 9pm ahh !!! Tired dou.. Then have to handle the kids, housework.. Wah, better kill me..

Everytime when I eat in McD, I will order one double cheeseburger regular set and ala carte nuggets.. By the time I finished everything, no space for the drinks liao..

      But I’m very weird one, if Milo, I can finish very fast.. If Coke, I always leave half a cup leh.. By the way, McD’s Milo very nice… I can drink 100 cups! Hahahaha..

      But I have to admit, about the cili sauce, if I eat alone or with my hubby or with just another person, I don’t take so much sauces.. If eat in a group or a big gang, automatically will tend to take many sauces.. Dunno why.. Hehehehe..

      Coz we will help each other to take the sauces right.. Sometimes when we go back to the table, A already taken for us, B is still taking for everyone and didn’t know A already took some sauces, then C who just came, also took some sauces for everyone.. So ended up, too many sauces already..

      But before we leave, we will pour the sauces back into the wrapper and then balut it and cover it la.. We won’t leave the untouched sauces on the table la, paiseh ma, hehehee.. You can say we wasteful.. huhuhu..

      See those with young family....anak 4-5 orang then go McD for a treat. Cannot afford to buy 6 cups of soft drinks so buy one set and share la. Soft drinks free refill wor.

      In city area we are lucky la. Most family enough to eat and enough to wear But for some family with many kids...well...rather difficult to survive lo.

      At least McD is kind enough not to remove the refill totally la. For 50sen people can still top up. At least not bad burden to customer la. Hopeflly McD will not remove the refill part totally la

      Like in one Fried Chicken Chain restaurant, no refills at all. People have to buy if they want to drink

    2. To me, those soft drinks served in the fast food chains are very sweet leh! Don't think got diluted...
      I think it must be something else they added to make the drinks sweeter and 'addictive'.

  22. Good afternoon people!

    Oh this news, I have heard before... But not a big deal to me so I din't really remember it, haha! I am like you, I don't usually refills my soft drinks at McR. In fact, I find the soft drink a bit too much for me (even the regular size), everytime I sure cannot finish them. And actually I refrain myself from finish the whole glass also la, soft drink is really unhealthy, it contains nearly 40g of sugar and about 140 calories (the regular size). Even if I order the light Coke, it still contains lots of sugar which our body don't need!
    I am not a super health freak person but I do care bout the amount of sugar and calories in my food intake.

    So everytime if I go McR, I'll just drink about 1/4 (sometimes even lesser) of the soft drink and the rest, give to my hubby (haha so bad la me :p). Erm I am thinking cause he works outside everyday, sweat a lot, he can easily burn the calories and sugar, unlike him, I don't sweat that much, and if you compare him and me, he is so much slimmer than I am! So, a bit of sugar won't put on much weight on him la! xDD

    Replies
    1. Yea, this will be a frustrating and sad news for McR lovers, especially those who likes to sit there for hours using the free wifi, and take advantage of the free refills.
      Actually, in my opinion, 50cent per refill is not expensive at all, I mean very reasonable! But just wonder, 50 cent refill applicable to both regular and large size? Or just the regular size? Sorry me not a big fan of McR so don't really know about the deal.

      Anyway, like I said, 50 cent is really reasonable la! Imagine when you sit there for hours but you order a set of meal, then keep on refilling the soft drinks, and you are using their electricty (lights and air cond), also occupying the seat and table, all these are chargeable, though we may not measure it directly. Be considerate a bit, people also doing business, they wanna earn not lose. So don't take advantage of the free refill and abuse the rights.
      And you know, some people go refill the soft drink but in the end, they din't finish the drinks also.... What a waste! If you think you cannot finish the whole glass then don't refill full la!
      Hmm, we are mostly being spoil by those free stuff huh? Like you said, when given free stuff, we just take advantage, but when asked to pay, we will make noise, haha! That's really human beings la! xD

      Delete
    2. As for the ketchup and chili sauce, What you mentioned is for takeaway right? The theory is like shopping in the mall, we need to pay 20 cent for the plastic bag. Anyway, 10 cent per sachet is also reasonable, McR can really considerate your idea ;)
      If we dine in, we can just go press the sauce anytime we want, how much we want. Last time my hubby used to take like 4-5 plates of the sauce, while he ordered a set of meal, so basically we need the sauce only for the fries and burger, but 4-5 plates is a bit too much, many times end up he din't finish all the sauce, so I always nag him one. Yep it's not a big deal, the staff will just throw away the unfinish sauce into the dustbin and 眼不见为净 after that, and we just leave the place.
      But come to think of it, if everyone also do like him, how much sauce is being wasted? I always think about those poor people living in Africa who long for food and starve themselves everyday. What would we do if we're in that situation?
      So I always remind myself not to waste food, it's no good. Just take appropriate amount first, if feeling not enough, we can always go refill again.

      Now, hubby listens and he cut down the sauce already ;)
      (Actually too much sauce also not good, those are artificial stuff...)

      Delete
    3. Oh ya, if they implement charging the sauce and drinks, they must do it for the straw also!
      I think I have shared before that, I saw a bunch of kids playing with straws at McR last time, and their parents just sit there chit chatting, din't stop their kids from wasting the straws also! Apa la!

      You know those kids go take lots of straws and connect them and make them into a 'sword' and started to play 'war' there! I think they even compete to see who can connect the longest straws! Such a waste leh!
      Those straws they played might not be dirty but who dare to use them again? It's plastic some more so it's really a waste, not environmental friendly at all!

      If you eat McR at Hatyai, you'll realize they serve the soft drinks together with the straw, rather than putting the straw at the table and let people take freely. I think that's their way of preventing wastage to happen.
      I don't know if this is applicable to all McR outlets in Thailand but at least I notice this is the trend at Hatyai, a few times already.

      Delete
    4. yes, we must do it moderately. Just take enough chilli sauce and don't waste just because it's free. It's good that they provide sachets instead of free flow of the sauce. And I never like the idea of free refill. Why do people need to drink so much after food?

      Delete

    8. People always take advantages on whatever is FREE. Other country people probably will appreciate more when the things are FREE...

      I feel embarrassed too being one of them. People charge you FREE, what you've done being a good citizen then?

      1. Take more sachets of sauces more than you required. Reason: I want to keep it for future usage... Office do not have sauce I can take more so can keep inside my locker.

      2. Free refill drinks, people here are like "pok meng" drink until kena kencing manis. So impose 50cents lor... but hor come to think of it...how many times you can drink and pay... so how long you wanna sit in McD? or you stay there? People always think is FREE to refill leh... so hang out more at the place, since is air conditioned, got plug for us to charge our notebook and handphone if there's no battery. Even that, got TV too... Then why don't set up a tent there and stay over night....LoL

      3. At KFC, I noticed people will grab the whole bottle of chilli sauce lor... when last time they don't have a counter for us to take our own sauce. But most of the time, when I buy a huge amount, I just request from them whether I can just get one bottle instead of so many sachets of sauces.

      4. When my teenage time, I often see teenager make fulls of their friends by taking more sachets of peppers and salt. They purposely put alot of pepper and salt in one of the friend's drink... wasting right? Some take so much but kenot finish.

      5. Tissues: Haiyo another big headache if I have to think of it. Let me relates it with Pizza Hut... I have one uncle colleague who will just take as much as tissue as possbile lor..I asked him why? he told me... he keep inside the car for his family usage - the tissue is thick and good for wipes and clean... "ALAMAK!"... Do you notice even the Tabasco sauce also not put on each of the table anymore... cos I think got people steal it...

    When it is free, sure everyone will keep refilling the drinks. Now, RM0.50, I am sure that many will cut down the trips to refill the drinks. True, too much soft drinks is not healthy and good, it is actually very fattening.
    Talk about the chili and tomato sauce, I would take the amount that I could really finish. I won’t allow my kids to take too much of it. In fact, I hate seeing parents allowing their kids to play around with straws in fast food restaurant. It is not environmental friendly and very wasteful indeed.
