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 high up in …

LG UltraWide Monitor 38WK95C Review

I bought this today. It was not an impulse buy. I spent months researching and then two months of waiting for stock from LG Malaysia.

Trust me, it is not easy to buy a modern monitor these days.

I have a few criteria:
ultra wide screen regardless of size - can be 32" or 34" or even 34"it must be IPS screen, not TN or whatever the other one is calledit must have USB-C to charge the MacBook Pro and also to extend the display of the MacBookit must have good speakers. Not the puny ones that some Dell monitor shipped with. Really good ones. I hate having to plug in the speaker jack from PC to monitorit should have G-Sync supportbonus - it has nice legs that doesn't take up space I have searched high and low. I looked for Asus, I looked at Dell and Alienware.. none of them ticked these checkboxes, particularly that USB-C one..

I realize that I really wanted the USB-C and good speakers. I don't really care about G-Sync because even though I still play games, I spen…

2017 Honda CRV in Malaysia! An owner's review

After years of driving an old car, I finally decide to change. And having a small family, I was eyeing a SUV. Last year, we were considering a Mazda CX5 because of its exterior look but after inspecting it in a showroom and then sitting on a Honda CRV, we have no doubt that Honda was the choice to go. Our decision was simply based on how spacious the interior cabin of the CRV is compared to the CX5.

And so, we have to decide whether to get one early this year or wait for the new CRV which was supposed to launch in May 2017 (well, that was before Honda Malaysia decided to delay the launch date after Raya). What made me wait for the new model was that the sales agent told me that the new CRV will have a new engine and Apple CarPlay! Being an Apple fan, as you can tell from this blog, I definitely wanted CarPlay. We dropped a deposit with the showroom sales agent in April.

I waited patiently and when Honda finally launched the car on 12 July, the wife and I went to the showroom for a lo…
