I was craving for fried chicken again. No. Not KFC. The last fried chicken I had was Texas Chicken ordered via Grabfood from the Damansara Uptown branch. It was not that good and the packaging was bad. The box was torn at the bottom >.< (happened again a second time, so no more ordering from Damansara Uptown)
This time I decided to order from the 1 Utama branch. See if it is any better. My order was delivered by a Grabcar driver, an uncle. He took a long time to get to the restaurant. From the restaurant to my home, he also took a while.
When he finally showed up (some 45 minutes from the time of order), it also took a long time for him to get out of his car hah..hah... I watched him from my glass door and he seemed to be fiddling with his phone. I couldn't tahan so I went outside. He got out of his car when he saw me and put my order at my gate as requested.
This uncle reminded me of another Grabcar uncle. Quite some time ago I had a meeting and after the meeting I booked a cab. When I got into the car, the uncle was fiddling with his phone. I had to gently inform him that there was another car behind us waiting to move.
So uncle drove and parked by the side of the road and fiddled with his phone some more. We have to be patient with these old folks (I can say "old folks" because I am one myself hah...hah...) because they are not so conversant with technology.
Finally, uncle got the car moving and he drove back to where he picked me up. Then he drove away and came back to the same spot again! So I told him that he is driving to the pick up point instead of the destination. "The waze told me to go here!" he wailed. Oh dear.
I told him, never mind, forget about waze and I will guide you to my office. So he drove and midway he started to fiddle with his phone again and lost concentration. A car honked at us and I told the uncle to please forget his phone and just follow my directions.
Thankfully I arrived safely at my destination and when I wrote a review, I had to be honest hah..hah...
Anyway, back to my chicken.
My honey butter biscuit was broken and due to the time taken for the chicken to reach me, it was not as crispy as it should be.
But I will have to say that the chicken was way better than the one from the Uptown branch. So you see, these franchise places are inconsistent with their quality control.
My cat was
fortunately unfortunately outside and not within sight when this was delivered, so mommy underwrite her portion hee..hee....
Early this morning we had a tete-a-tete.
Yup she woke me up. Earlier than usual >.<
Squeezed herself into the sofa with me.
Oh really? I scrubbed my toes last night lah...
It's my sofa mah...I can have it all day long if I want.
She was not pleased.
Very persistent, this girl.
Must show her who is boss.
She turns on her charm.
