The young Malaysians' English is very chialat! Even the Chinese ones.
Kampung mentality. If you speak English, they will say "wah, very lanxi (haolian). speak English so good. Why dun want to speak Mandarin/Malay ah?"

UNIQLO wise in MY not as cheap vs sg or japan
Maybe due to its exchange rate is soo weak vs others country

Plus japan got the budget UNIQLO called GU too & if Japan got SAle plus tax refunds it's cheaper than sg

I've had similar experience with the City Square branch one weekday afternoon. Only a few tables had customers and yet they didn't seem to know what to do/serve. This, despite us speaking partially in Malay too.
Bad experience at CS branch too and walked out without ordering but the one at Kotaraya was much better.

Secret Recipe never good to start with. Not sure why so many Sinkies feel they are some elite or tasty brand.
It was a mistake because we just wanted a drink before going over to Econ Save... ended up.... like that. all 4 of us never fancy this kind of thing but just sitting have a drink, turn out this way

Same, not really nice in Malaysia.

I just bought Fragrance mooncake from qoo10, though made in malaysia, taste 70% to Tai Chong Kok, egg yolk and lotus paste less oily only, uses melon seed instead of pine seeds.
