Coffee Shop

There are many coffee shops in Aman Suria. It's a good thing. I patron all of them except Sun Ying Loong. SYL is a famous coffee shop serving Ipoh's white coffee. Some said they are the original Ipoh White Coffee. There are two branches in PJ, one in A Suria and the other in K Damansara.

The reason I don't drink there is because of bad service and expensive drink. They charged a premium to their teh tarik and coffee. About 30 or 40 sen extra. Why are they doing this and why do people continue to drink there is beyond me. It's not like they are a a/c place. They are just a normal coffee shop.

Today I was eating at a new coffee shop. They charged the standard rate. But it got me thinking. Why have we not heard of a coffee shop charging Less than usual. I'd imaging the profit margin of drink is high and if you charge 20 sen cheaper, you should be able to pull in more crowd. But you don't hear of this at all.

Instead, people continue to pay a premium. This explains the continue mushrooming of premium cafe like Pappa Rich, Pak Li and Old Town White Coffee.

It boggles the mind that Malaysians are not demanding for lower or flat rate. We must be very rich!

So the next time you see a raise in sugar or flour or whatever, shut up. Coz you obviously could afford it coz you are still patronizing these expensive shops.
