Cockroach in Jogoya? Nevermind lah

Yes, u read me right.



By the Haagen Daaz ice cream

in posh RM88++ per head Japanese buffet restaurant in Star Hill

And the reaction of Malaysian to the little roach? NOTHING. Not one person in the very long queue for the ice cream took notice!!!!!!

When i took pictures above, my colleague was scared that we might get scolding for taking pictures of the cockroach.

HELLO, who's in the wrong here?!!!!!

It was a free department social gathering dinner thingie, so i told one of the planners, he's an Executive Senior in our firm, equivalent to Assistant Manager. And he was like "Really ar?"

I showed him the pictures and then he said "Never mind la"

I told the other girl, also a co-planner, she said "Actually i saw it too", giggle and she was reluctant to discuss it further

OH MY GOD. I was so baffled and, and... speechless, i didnt bother telling the bosses, after all it was us who were dying to go to Jogoya!

Their reactions made my heart sank and i just gave up.

God god god, RM88 per head and all those other people who actually paid for the damn dinner out of their own pockets didnt say a thing????????

In Malaysia, 5 Star Restaurants get away with roaches running about (yeah there was not one but two), ministers get away with...

Makes my blood boil. Furious!

Monday night and that place was packed like it was just RM8.80. Gosh. Its overrated. I cant believe i wanted to go there for over 2 years, so desperate to go that i cried more than once.

Sigh, i had lots of scallops tho =P Prior to Jogoya, i NEVER knew scallops had shells. My first taste of scallops was in Chinese 10 course dinners (without shells) and i only bought them raw/cooked (also without shell) in Australia where scallops damn huge!

They were everywhere in the buffet. I feasted on them silly, the shells piled up on my side of the table, so many helpings till i was sick of them that night. Now i kinda wanna eat them... thats one reason why i am usually anti-food blogs, they make u wanna eat at 1.36am

Ignore the pink arrow, ask if u are interested.

Overall verdict? Food's good, interior's cozy, nice for family gatherings, couple seats are cute and tight but i don't think its romantic at all, the ones i passed by anyway. But by the end of the night, the place has lost its novelty. Once is enough. I won't be going back, not for RM88

E is right for not wanting to go there, he doesn't eat 90% of the seafood served, paying RM88 for him to go for the buffet ain't logical. My head knew it all along but my heart was so envious of her and the one who got my dream birthday (her bf brought her to Jogoya and then to Avril's concert).

Now u know my jealous side, the green monster that i never showed on my blog before this. Haha. Three cheers to the company i work for. Thanks to them, i've been to Jogoya (for free, heheh) and i can laugh at how stupid i was =P

I saw my link there!


Anyway, first or second time is alright but after that you will be bored of them. I only love their unlimited servings of coconuts and tempura prawn.

By the way, did you make a complain to the management abt the cockroach?

If I was there, I will definitely do.

It gets kinda stuffy inside there during peak hour and when we got out of there, our shirts smells like one kind oni...

Sue Lin said...

I really really really wanted to complain Jess. But after seeing their reactions, i just gave up la, they made me feel like there was something wrong with me wanting to complain. Our bill was over RM4,000 u know? But i am not the one who paid

Oh, the coconuts were good! Pity cant eat the flesh

Bacterium, yeah, i REALLY don't know why its SO SO SO crowded! We went there on a MONDAY night. If weekend no need to eat already right?

typlotion said...

ei work la,

don't blog hop during work ok?

supplementals said...

WTF! Execelent comparison with our ministers. Crowded cause buffet maybe? RM88++ quite cheap for ppl who can eat tons (like most of us, haha). And its in a good location anyway. Go tell kennysia or someone and see what happens :p

Sue Lin said...

Didnt blog hop in work la, Typlotion, i almost NEVER do that ok? Cuz they always send me to other offices for less than 2 weeks and the IT people wouldn't bother giving us internet access there cuz its such a short while. So i always dun have internet at work anyways.

On study leave la fren!

Supplementals, haha, damn, u noticed that one line hanging sentence!

No la the bosses didn't think its worth it for most of us. Overheard them talking, so i didn't wanna further... u know... by bringing up the roach to them...

Hope kennysia reads my email!
