Why I am never going back to Cha Me. Cha

Excuse me while I let off some steam.

The fiancé and I decided to go to this nice little Taiwanese bubble tea place/restaurant to have dessert for dinner. They serve hot food, appetizers, bubble tea and dessert. You know the usual. Mind you I have absolute no problems with the food, it taste like how Taiwanese food should taste. We ordered just a green tea shaved ice to share, this was at 8pm. We were patiently waiting while a lot of tables around us were starting to empty out. 15 minutes later, the table across from us who came in after us had already gotten their order. I'm thinking, where is my food?

5 minutes later, I asked a waiter to check on our dessert because it's been a while. I saw him speaking with the kitchen staff but he never came back, so we just continued waiting.

It has now been 25 minutes and I was getting livid. I mean how long does it take to make shaved ice??? Turn on the damn machine and let that thing do it's job, no? I see other tables getting theirs, but where the hell is ours?

Not only was our dessert taking a million years to come out with no explanation from the previous waiter, it was so hard to call someone over! We raised our hands and tried to get their attention, but they either see us and ignore us or they just don't want to bother.

Finally we got the attention of a waitress, I told her we've been waiting for 30 minutes for one dessert. She said it's been busy and that's why it's taking a while. HELLO???!!! BUSY? Are you kidding me, the tables around us have been empty for a while and the waiters are just standing around chatting with each other! Please tell me what part of "busy" are you referring to! 

I told her to check on our order and if it's not made yet, to cancel it. She went without a word, and came back 3 minutes later with our dessert.

Seriously? It takes a customer being angry and speaking out for you people to get your butts working? And I didn't even get an apology, they literally said nothing to me. We waited 30 minutes for something that can be made within 3 minutes and that is not even including the time that we had been trying to get an attention of a waiter to take our order and then ask about our order. At least an explanation or an apology would have suffice, but you just left us with our food that we couldn't even enjoy anymore.

This is the second time we came to this place, the first time we waited 30 minutes for our meal as well, but that time we ordered hot food so I didn't mind as much.

The attitude of the staff is just ridiculous, don't try to wiggle yourself out of the situation and make up excuses when confronted!

Like I said, there's nothing wrong with the restaurant or the food, but rest assured we won't be coming back ever again.

Here is the dessert we ordered, it was good, but I couldn't enjoy it.

Halloween Fun

Sorry for being MIA again guys. As usual, life got in the way.

Been really busy with wedding planning mostly. I don't know why people think it's fun, because it's far from being fun. If you have the budget, i would say SAVE YOURSELF! HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER!

But we did get most of the important things done though. I did find my dream dress and the bridesmaids dresses...what's left is….i guess a whole lot of other doesn't end.

Whatevs, life goes on.

I didn't do anything for halloween last year, so i made sure to celebrate this year. It was suuuuuper fun!

We celebrated at work with a pumpkin carving contest for each team, a costume contest and i was incharge of taking pictures for our photobooth concept. That, and LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS of candy consumption. Urgh, my stomach hurts by just thinking how much candy is still left over.

I got my costume a year beforehand, decided to be a fun UNICORN!!! I fell in love with onsies after wearing this costume =D

The management team all dressed up as Minions from Despicable Me

Fooling around with my work sisters

We are called the "Animals of Admin"

Some cool pumpkins from various teams

This one is from the Merchant team, they won best pumpkin. Very well deserved.

At night, we all went and booked a party room at a friends place to have a Halloween costume party. Had a good time seeing them, life gets too busy sometimes and quality time with good friends are hard to come by. It was really great seeing everyone dress up.

I love it when everyone dresses up!

Boardgames are a must!

Dark fairy and cyclopes

Dorothy and little Bopeep

Banana in Pajamas and an angel


Scream guy with a unicorn and a creeper from behind

Scream dude and Dark Alice in wonderland

Decided to try on the scream mask and make a funny pose

Time to hot the Piñata
