It's been a great year with MJ! Not only have we seen MJ grow from our first flagship store in Watsons NAC to 44 stores in Singapore, they have also launched 24 lovely chapters!

For their anniversary, MJ has come out with some really cute dollhouses at Watsons NAC. They first made their debut at the Cozycot Holygrail party but it has now shifted to NAC.

Vote for your favourite chapter and you'll get a limited edition handphone charm!

Here are a few sneak previews of the dollhouses!

From 30th Sept till 14th Oct, Chapter 20, 21, 22 and 23 will be showcased and from 15th Oct till 2nd Nov, Chapter 8, 11, 15 and 16 will be on display!

The chapters displayed are our best-selling chapters and the dollhouses will showcase the elements of the chapter plus the products launched!

My favourite would have to be Chapter 23!

After viewing the dollhouses, we went to Pasta Cafe to have dinner, also to mourn Jerraine's leaving us! She has left to pursue other opportunities. Here's wishing her all the best! <3

I had the steak... which was very disappointing.

Anyway...  the MJ girls gave us ambassadors a very nice door gift!

It's a lovely limited edition exclusive MJ dresser..

And it includes 4 of MJ's best sellers!

We had a great time as per every MJ meeting! More updates coming soon!

Interestingly enough, this happened right after I posted the Are you being served entry.

As some of you guys may know, I had my convocation ceremony on Sunday. On Saturday, I met up with some of my classmates to collect our tickets to the ceremony to be held at Raffles Convention Centre. So.. after collecting our tickets, we decided to get some drinks (for them), snacks (for me) at Mos Burger (Raffles City branch) for a brief catch up.

The girls ordered large drinks while I ordered a croquette to snack on. We were there barely 15 minutes when the manager, Hong Chong came up to us and asked us if we could give up our seats. While I had finished my croquette, the girls hadn’t finished their drinks!

In fact, they had only drank less than half of their drinks! I looked behind and I saw this family of 4 occupying a booth seat and they weren’t consuming ANY Mos Burger products at all! One of the guys was reading newspapers and another was surfing on his laptop. They weren’t asked to leave, or give up their seats at all. There was an empty table at the other end!

Why wasn’t the family asked to give up their seats? My classmates were wondering if it was due to the fact we looked like teenagers with our weekend clothes. It wasn’t as if we were hogging the seats for hours! We were only there for 15 minutes!

I wanted to stomp right to the manager and ask what the heck was going on but he had disappeared, maybe to the kitchen or some other back-end operations. Waited for a while, he didn’t appear and so we left as we all had other commitments lined up.

I don’t know about you but I was extremely disappointed and irked by the service. I doubt even food court “aunties” would ask anyone to leave/give up their seats.

Has anyone had any similar experiences?

I think you guys would have probably heard about the Are you being served website from Krisandro, Claudia, Molemole, Lesterchan or Hpility... Here's my turn to go on a mission!

Friends would know that I could be the best or the worst customer ever. I am very particular about service standards. If the service is good, I'll be sure to compliment the servers/write a good review/sometimes even email the restaurant complementing the service and the staff involved.

But when the service is bad, I'll be sure to complain. I'm never one to mince my words. For this mission, I was thinking of visiting a semi buffet restaurant with a bunch of friends. I'll definitely take note of how the service is like, especially during peak periods, whether they'll be able to keep their cool while busy. Aside from that, I'll be able the servers some questions about the type of dishes they'll recommend I order. Basically it'll be a test of product knowledge and professionalism.

Let's see how it goes! Any suggestions to what else I should do?
