Good service

Good service is fast becoming an oxymoron in Malaysia. Sales assistants in malls are always ready to tell one "No stock" because they're too lazy to check. Or worse, can't understand what you're trying to tell them. Vendors are not required to give you quality service or product for premium prices.

I took these photos a few months ago when I had to park my car at an outdoor parking space in the city. RM3.00 per entry is a good deal in the city so I drove in.



I had to go through this to get a parking space. Unpaved, uneven roads. Fortunately, it hadn't rained that day. Even then, I reminded myself that it was RM3.00 per entry. It is RM4.00 per entry at the car park near Pudu market!





Then the final insult when I went to pay the parking:



On the other side of the board, the rates were "clearly stated" (according to the cashier). Sorry, my "old" camera can't pick up the details. The rates was something like RM5.00 per entry if you park before 6am. 7am - 9 am was RM6.00, 9am - 11.00am was RM5.00, etc, etc. RM3.00 was only if you parked from 7pm onwards. Nope, that wasn't what I saw when I was going to drive in!

The last time I passed that place, the A4 size sheet of paper has now been pasted on the other side of the board too. Perhaps Superman will be able to tell me the parking rates before I turn in next time. Oh, no more next time!

Thats the carpark along Jln Yap Kwan Seng.
Where i park day in day out, the place really sucks though youre paying them so much, they cant even decently pave the area!
Yeah, and the rates are really silly.. oh well, here in Bolehland nothing ever comes cheap do they? (except lousy service)
