Asian Buffet at China Bar

Mr. C and I have been eyeing this place from the week I first arrived in Melbourne through the many times we've driven past this place.
Due to the price, we decided to come here on a special occasion like our anniversary.
However, my uncle beat us to it by treating us a couple of Sunday's ago to this China Bar, Asian Buffet for a luncheon his and his friend's family.
We arrived for the 1pm slot and parked our car at the allocated parking spot. There were many cars at the car park bay signalling a crowd.

There is a variety of food ranging from Dim Sum (otherwise known as yam cha here for whatever reasons I have no idea!) to fried koay teow and even curry laksa! There's awesome chicken rice and roasted pig, need I say more?!
I'll stop talking and let the pictures do the talking.

The food was alright but the staff was a little brash, abrupt borderline to being rude. I think they come from Hong Kong. Besides that, whoever that came out with the layout isn't very smart. Even I, a self-proclaimed not-so-smart person knows you shouldn't start a line right smack at the kitchen entrance!

The queue for the dim sum begins at the left side of the entrance going into the kitchen where else the right side is the queue to pick your 'liao' for the stir fried noodle bit. Obviously, with such a crowd, there is bound to be human traffic jam especially with Asians who are generally not courteous and who always jump queue or hogs the line. This is said based on experience and not pure biasness!

Besides, there were NO clear signs as to where the queue should begin. Usually, you would put the plates at the beginning of the line so that people can take a plate and start serving themselves with the food. However, at China Bar, they decide to be 'smart' and put it at the end of the queue and then, expect people to walk back the opposite way to queue. Genius!

The food was nice and worth the price but for the shabby treatment, Mr. C and I won't be coming back here anytime soon and neither will we bring our friends here.

It is important to have scrumptious tasting food with excellent presentation. However, customer service is essential and if the service is bad, leaving a bad taste or rather experience in one's mouth, don't expect them to patronage the restaurant anytime soon.

So, always serve others with a smile for you never know who's falling in love with your smile and serve with a giving heart for you never know whose life will be impacted or inspired by your giving heart!

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
to tell someone!

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks
of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation
but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the
hang of it!
