What a "GREAT" experiences in PIKNIK Cafe, Penang.

Dear PIK NIK cafe, what a "great" experiences I got from your cafe.
As a ex-loyal customer, I'm extremely pissed with your service!
I walked into your cafe and there were so many empty tables in there as it was not peak hours.
I choose an empty table as I can spot 2 power plugs in there ad I really need them, and ordered my food and drinks.
What you did?
Asked your waitress to come and approach me, asking me whether to switch to another table or not? I told her that I need the 2 power plugs in here therefore I choose this table.
What more?
You asked your staff to approach me again and asking me to switch to another table AGAIN because that table caters to 6 person and I was only 2 person in there.
Have you ever ask whether are we gonna be there for long?
Do you respect us as your customers? That we already refused to switch for the 1st time and you asked again for the 2nd time?

For your info, this is not the 1st time this is happening.
The last time I dined in your cafe and there were no table with power plug, therefore I had my late lunch there while waiting for other people to leave, and it was non peak hours. The same thing happened! You told your waitress to deny my request of changing table!
I also walked out straight!

Sorry to say but I've already given you second chance today, and you just pissed me off.
PIKNIK Cafe will not be my choice ANYMORE!
From now on I swear I will boycott this cafe and told my friends not to go there too!
You don't know how to appreciate and respect your customers so I do really hope that your cafe can last, HOPE!

Well, so they have not give any feedback after a few days until I commented on their page again.
What happens next? I got insulted, well, at least me and some of my friends felt this way.
Seriously, you don't think that your CUSTOMER SERVICE & ATTITUDE is a problem?
So you think that it is right to treat your customers that way? I wonder.
These are some comments by other people about the way they apologized.
Seriously, I'm not the only who felt insulted. 
And until today, 3rd of May, I still haven't get any feedbacks from PIKNIK Cafe yet.
So I guess they are just gonna ignore my case?
Sad, this is how the customer service is.
Whenever you're in Penang and you wanted to go to this cafe, please think twice.
Cause you dont want to get treated like me and ruin your whole trip to Penang.

PSY - Gentleman

Guess if I were to ask you who is PSY, even the 3 years old children are able to answer my questions.
Yes, it is Gangnam Style that made him an international super star now.
Gangnam Style caused a rage in year 2012 and the whole world is crazy for the dance!
He made it to the top of the world in just a few months time.

Right now, PSY Oppa has come out with his new single named "Gentleman"
The first time I heard about it, I guess most likely it is gonna make it to the top again.
As what I've expected, the MTV launch on 13th of April and now within 3days time, it is now at the top again!
The top clicks MTV, PSY - Gentleman.

So I assume that people would start filming their own Gentleman MV soon.
Another rage in year 2013!
Father Mother Gentleman!

Michelangelo's Restaurant & Bar @ G Hotel Penang

There's not much of Italian restaurant in Penang, and not all of them can really serve some nice and Italian's local delicacy.
No matter, finally it has got some nice offer here in Penang.
Michelangelo's Restaurant & Bar, it is been in Penang G Hotel for a while, but I guess most of you do not know that they are selling very nice Italian food.
Michelangelo's Restaurant & Bar is located right next to Coffee Bean Tea & Leaf.
It can be easily spot if you walk into the Alfresco Area of Gurney Plaza. 

Michelangelo's Restaurant and Bar always attracted a lot of walk in customers and tourist to dine in

The interior is so nice and also full of Michelangelo's fine art. All of them were hanging on the wall around the restaurant

Even the lights hanging on the ceiling was also full of Michelangelo's creations

Other than just restaurant, there was also a bar counter for people to chill out here

M is the signature of this restaurant, it stands for Michelangelo

One of the best and most famous creation of Michelangelo's hanging on the wall, The Creation of Adam.

I believe there are a lot of people came here for their Magarita, Pizzas and Pastas.
But this time, Michelangelo's Restaurant & Bar wanted to bring something different to all the customers in Penang.
Michelangelo's Restaurant & Bar have invited Chef Paolo, an Italian Chef to come and bring in new dishes to their menu.
Thanks to Chef Paolo, now we get to taste some other Italian food other than just pizzas or pastas.
However, this menu will only be available for this whole month of April until 3rd of May only.
Anyway, let's skip all the words and let me introduce you to all the nice new Italian food that you may not heard before in Penang.

Strawberry Magarita
Magarita is their best selling beverage here. You must try it whenever you visit this restaurant!

Mango Magarita
This is mango flavored magarita, which will fulfill your craving for sweet mango, all you need is one sip to taste the perfect mix of liquor and the fruit flavor.

Lime Magarita
I personally love this one, and magarita just made the dinner tasted perfect!

Melanzane Parmigiana
Aubergines a.k.a eggplants are baked to it perfection and covered by Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, together with tomatoes and herbs that made this dish a great appetizer!
Highly Recommended!

Gamberoni Piccanti
King prawns cooked in white wine, garlic, chillies and herbs. The prawns are so fresh that it tasted so juicy in every bite, and remember to finish the last sip of the sauce with the ciabatta bread! Appetizing!
Must try!

Zuppa di Pollo e Fungi
Chicken and mushroom are always perfect match for each other, even in Italian food, it made a perfect mix soup, if you don't like seafood? Go for this one then!

Zuppa di Pesce
A soup that mixed all the nice and fresh seafood together, mussels, clams, cuttlefish, monk fish and snapper.
It tasted so nice that I couldn't stop myself from finishing the whole plate! Seriously a soup to die for!
Highly Recommended!

Linguini del Pescatore
This is a seafood pasta that will make you crave for! Don't just judge it by it's appearance, I'm pretty sure that you will fall for it once you taste a bite!
Highly Recommended!

Pollo a la Bacco
This is a dish that cooked with chicken breast, usually chicken breast may be hard and tasteless when it is cooked, but this one will just make you love chicken breast from now on, it tasted so juicy and nice with all the herbs that absorbed into the meat, cook it with white wine, mushrooms, tomatoes and creamy sauce which made my first bite so surprised!
Highly Recommended!

Sella D'Agnello
Roasted lamb with sauce made of red wine, port, rosemary and garlic sauce made this dish rather nice and filling! Though the lamb is a little bit too hard, but the taste is so good that I had 3 pieces of it. 
Must try!

Dolce Di Datteri
This is an Italian dessert that tasted rather special, it is not like any other desserts that I've tasted in Penang before, my first time to Italian dessert, it is not sweet, and just perfect when topped with ice cream.
Must try!

Meet Chef Paolo, the Italian Chef who brought this brand new menu to Michelangelo's Restaurant & Bar

Would definitely want to meet him again in the future, thanks for all the nice food!

Golden Triangle @ Eastin Hotel Penang

Hi guys, it is April now!
What would you think of when it comes to the month April?
Now let me tell you, it is Songkran Festival!
In conjunction with the festive seasons in Thailand, Eastin Hotel Penang has come up with the theme of Golden Triangle for their April promotion.
Below are all the dishes that will be available for their Golden Triangle theme promotion.

Yam Talay
(Thai Spicy Seafood Salad)
I'm always into Thai version Seafood Salad, as the sour and spiciness of the dishes would be great to make me feel appetizing, always the best dish to start a meal! And this dish from Eastin Hotel Penang is nice! The mussel, prawns and squid are fresh!

Larb Ped
(Laos Spicy Duck Salad)
This is also one of my favourite dish from the food review this time.
It is not too spicy, tasted very nice as I'm a duck lover, perfecto for appetizer!

 Gaeng Keaw Wan Gai
(Thai Green Curry Chicken)
Green Curry is always my favourite Thai dish, and the chicken has been cooked really nicely and tasty!
This dish is really awesome except it is only a little bit too salty, still nice to me though!

(Burmese Fish Noodles)
This is my first time having this dish. It tasted kinda special as it is a bit of spicy and sweet, then squeezing the lemon into the noodles made it tasted kinda nice.

Or Lam
(Laos Green Vegetables Stew)
Yums! My favourite asparagus stewed with carrot, eggplant and other vegetables.
It tasted quite good, but only a little bit overcooked.

 Khao Mok Gai
(Laos Steamed Chicken Rice)
The main attraction of this dish is the rice, not the chicken.
The rice tasted kinda like Malay's Nasi Briyani yet it is still different. Special and tasty.

Khow Neaw Ma Moang
(Mango Sticky Rice)
Ah ha! My favourite sticky rice with mango! The mango here is kinda sweet, but the rice is not well cooked, or else it will be perfect. I wonder why the coconut juice is not that sweet. Hmmm.....

Tab Tim Krob
(Water Chestnut with Coconut Milk)
My another favourite thai dessert! love the fresh and sweet jackfruit.
The only problem is the coconut juice is not so sweet. Suitable for people who prefer their dessert less sweet.

Here's a picture of all the food.
Bringing the feel of Golden Triangle theme.
