I am currently staying in Homewood Suites by Hilton. While I am satisfied with the room and the environment, I totally hate the breakfast selections. In fact, there was no selection. Everyday I see the same type of food. Seriously, I don't know how I can "tahan" the next 4 weeks. In my previous trip to Dallas, I stayed in Residence Inn by Marriott. The breakfast is as bad but at least every day is different. Marriott changed their breakfast everyday and repeat every week. So this Monday and next Monday's food will be the same.

Hilton, in comparison, repeat every two days. So, Monday, I may get scramble eggs and bacon. Tuesday I'll get scramble eggs and sausage. Wed - eggs and bacon, Thu - eggs and sausage. Oh my goodness!!! How to eat for 6 weeks? Granted there are other "standard" stuff that are available everyday but these are crap - the standard stuff are cereals, breads, muffins. WHERE IS THE VARIETY?

I am going to write a complain letter.. I mean, suites like this are meant for long stay. If you can't change your breakfast menu, I am sure you will lose your customer.

My company will compensate me additional $8 per day if breakfast is not provided by the hotel. Unfortunately, I can't claim that now, can I? Celaka!


  1. It's called the Work Breakfast™. You only eat 1 or 2 variety everytime. How is that different from having your regular breakfast in M'sia?

  2. Ringgit

    When are you going to be satisfied? When are you going to find everything IDEAL for you?

    The Answer is NONE! It's all in your mind.

  3. I am not sure about you ZipD but I have at least 5 different choices for my regular breakfast in Malaysia. Let's see:
    1. Nasi Lemak
    2. Roti Canai/telur/Tosai/etc
    3. Noodles - fish ball, asam laksa, curry laksa, pork ball, pork noodle, wonton noodle, pan mee, yee mee, char kuey teow
    4. Chee cheong fun
    5. Dim sum/pao/loh mai kai

    Isn't there more variety in MY than egg/sausage and egg/bacon?

    I don't know.. maybe you eat bread everyday for your "Work Breakfast" but not me...

  4. Ringgit, I totally agreed with you. I stayed in Marriot Residence Inn in other State - aiyuh, jelak tengok same breakfast - cereal, muffin, egg, sausages, milk nia everyday - 2 mths - siapa tak jelak ? the other thing also I tak biasa makan American breakfast everyday liow - sien ... that's why I drove 2.5 hrs to Banana Leaf Msian restaurant to makan Nasi Lemak and Teh Tarik - it was like in heaven then :) yummy

    I asked boss and he commented that since breakfast was given, so cannot claim. I actually told him - i didn't ask for breakfast, as the matter of fact, i prefer without breakfast ....ALSO - the Marriot Residence Inn person told me Residence Inn with breakfast has less points. Likewise Courtyard Marriot doesn't provide breakfast but earn more points ( diff standard and higher rate ), obviuos eh my next stay would be which one liow - HAHAHA

One million daimoku

In April 2008, Anne and I started our resolution to chant 1 million daimoku in one year. It's already Jan - and I am only one-third of the way. I really need to WORK HARDER - coz I made another 1 million resolution from Jan - Dec 2009. The chart you see on the right of this post is a chart that we put beside our butsudan. It tracked our chanting progress. Every 20 minute, we coloured one box. Mine is the one on top, Anne's at the bottom - you can see that she made much better progress than me! Hmmm.. come to think of it, I am not even at one third!! --- Edit 22 March 2009: Thanks to Google, a couple of friends in faith found this post and they want to know how many hours of chanting is required to achieve one million diamoku. Here it is. Based on our publication in Malaysia, 20 minutes of chanting is equivalent to 1,000 daimoku. So, one hour is 3,000 daimoku. 1 million would take about 333 hours. --- Edit 8 April 2018: Checking my blogger stats, this post is pretty hi

Amazon Alexa in Malaysia - does it work well? A review...

Feels like Christmas in September. Thanks to Doktor Cinta, my friend who live in Australia. Back in July, Amazon Australia had a Prime Day. I joined the trial using my usual Amazon account and ordered an Echo Dot, Echo Plus (the taller one with a built-in hub) and a Kindle Paperwhite, shipping them to a dear friend in Australia. My friend visited Malaysia and brought the Echos with him two weeks ago. You can imagine my thrill to get my hands on Alexa and start using it... in Malaysia. As a side story, sometimes, you can't believe how events are aligned properly to prepare my place to be a connected home - I bought a superb new mesh network router, eero (by the way, I'd say it's one of my best electronic purchases after an iPhone! It is that good), which acts as a strong WiFi backbone as it blanket my double storey house with a reliable and fast WiFi. Then, maxis launched Fibernation program which let me to upgrade my internet from 6 Mbps (pathetic) to 100 Mbps wit

Who is the official service center for Seiko watches?

The Great Blue; Kinetic Auto Relay 100M I have a 15 year old Seiko watch which I love very much. It's a Great Blue series and kinda one-of-its-kind, because Seiko discontinued it as soon as it was launch. So, there are very limited number of units. The watch I own is a Kinetic Auto Relay which means it is powered by my arm movement. And the nice thing about it is that if I don't use my watch, it hands will not move but the Kinetic capacitor which stores energy (up to 4 years of inactivity) will continue to keep track of the time. When I picked up the watch and shake it a bit, it will wake up and auto adjust to the correct time whether it is AM or PM. But my watch is 15 year old. At that age, the capacitor cannot hold a lot of charges. These days if I left my watch unused for 2 days, the watch stopped keeping time. I need to get the capacitor replaced. But who is the official service center for Seiko? The thing about luxury watches is that if you don't send it to
