We got down to ordering the food but we took a while cos there are ppl who are playing hide-and-seek....






And ppl who went crazy just thinking of what to order





Ppl who think for a long time..





And last of all, ppl who played with their handphones.. heehee





Actually we took just 15min plus to order lah...


Dont take my pics lah...

It was not long before the level 2 was fully occupied... But there was only 2 ppl serving all the tables upstairs.. I think the place is seriously shorthanded loh...


Crowded


Anna falling asleep from waiting for the food


Played with hp again..

Finally the snacks are here...


Nuggets, Smiley fries, and calamari rings


I love the smiley sooooo much that Mei Ping bought me a bag of it..


My very own Smileys.. How come i never see it at NTUC? I must be blind...


The artwork of Jo...


Chalotte's Zoc (which tasted like lemon tea) and Tien Fun's drink (cant remember what it is)


My lingerin Angel.. Tasted nice..

Long after we finished our snacks, the main courses finally came..


Cajun Chicken


Honey Mustard Chicken ( i seriously think the only difference between this and Cajun Chicken is the sauce.. :p )


Seafood Galore shared by Chalotte, Anna and Mei Ping (I stole some to eat too)


My Cilantro Fillet, that i feel do not taste very nice..


Jasmine Cod Fillet ordered by Jo.


Crispy Lemongrass Chicken, ordered by Joey.


Cookie Mookie

After eating, we sat there and chat and TAKE PHOTOS...

I like this angle.. Looked like Anna is kissing a glass that is bigger than her face... But it was just due to the angle and distance..

Hmmmm....


Tired Chalotte..


Hahaha...


Blank look

Blur Blur..


Heehee..


Thinking...


Lalalala...

Finally it is time to pay and leave..


Anna ah ma counting the cash...


We actually wanted to order this....


Rainbow Indulgence... But hor, we are saving our stomachs for ice-cream instead..


The place was visited by many stars wor...

We went to Haagen Daz for ice-creams.. We ordered 2 fondue sets.. And waited almost 30mins for them... This made our moods turned from joyous to angry..


Waiting happily


Wait and wait


Still waiting


Looking at pics taken


Taking pics


Why so long???


Unhappy...


Our two ex-Interns

Finally, the fondue came but there was only 1 set.. My side (5 ppl) started eating first..


Fondue


Yummy!!


Sinful!!!


The ice-cream..

After 40mins, where we had almost finished our fondue, the second set still had not been delivered to us.. We stopped a staff who was the supervisor (or something) and was told that the kitchen made a mistake and is now preparing the second set for us..

We were very unhappy because they should have taken the intiative to tell us first.. We requested to see the manager and the supervisor went to the counter before coming back to say that the manager is busy at the moment and he hoped he can do whatever he can to appease us..

In the end, we got 2 scoops of free ice-cream of the newest flavours, Summer Berries and Cream and Melon Ice Cream.. Plus the second set of fondue, which came 10misn later, had more scoops of ice-cream.. Can you believe that the second fondue was finished by only 3 ppl.. Anna, Chalotte and Jo.. Incredible..

In the end, i was still unhappy and was going to write on the comment card.. But then i decided to write an email instead to be more detailed.. I couldnt find the supervisor, who seemed to be "assisting" in the kitchen after he had dealt with us, so i got his name from another staff. I also walked up to the cashier and got the manager's name, Christopher..

This got his full attention and he came out to serve us with another 2 scoops of Summer Berries and Cream Ice Cream (Actually we are sibeh full by then.. ). He explained that they had just fired off the old staff, thus the staff serving were all new.. In fact, he had only came to this HV outlet for just 3 days.. He also said that they were short of staff that day, with just 7 ppl to handle the whole peak hour. There is only 1 staff in the kitchen that is handling all these orders..

Frankly, i was not convinced by the excuses he had said and was still going to write that email.. But in the end, he charged us only the price of 1 fondue set.. Making me deciding not to write liao cos will be very paiseh and cruel leh.. The manager hoped that we will visit again to determine whether the service had improved... Anyone going there to eat recently? Let me know how it is hor..


Poor Kris had to swallow the free ice cream.. cos none of the gals want to eat liao..

  • Hi,

    I'm a regular visitor at Holland Village Haagen Dazs. Christopher, the current manager has been at that outlet for a month plus before 30 July 2006 and he was giving me the same lame excuses for 2 times. He has been jerking around with lies of staff shortage and covering up his inability to serve the customer and maintain the Haagen Dazs quality service by giving up free ice creams endlessly to shut the customer off from reporting to the management. I think you should write in without any hesitation. He is basically buying u off with free goodies which is simply unacceptable for the quality of services which should be provided by Haagen Dazs at anytime anyplace. Cherio. - Aussie Businesswoman - SS.

  • Excuse me, But I feel that Christopher used that excuse it bascially maybe he's really in sortage of staff. I was one of the customers there during July too. I view how the way he works and the staff there too. So if you people out there don't know the suitation properly. Stop saying things that are not true, I'm sure Chistopher offered free ice cream is not to shut your mouth but to try to make it up. And hope you would understand why is he doing this.

  • To the business woman! I'm sure you're old enough to understand why Christopher is doing this. Stop being one minded. He's not doing this to shut people's mouth. he's doing this because he knows how customers feels having to wait for their ice cream. I'm sure there were many customers at that point. You won't be expecting your order to be out right after you have place your order. Am I right? If that is the cause, Everyone would be a super human.
