Dinner at Berjaya Times Square Hotel & Convention Centre

I was at the Lions Club Inauguration dinner of its new District Governor in Berjaya Times Square Hotel & Convention Centre. I shall not mention whom was elected as the District Governor of District 308B1 but you can check it out here. It's like a dinner of inauguration and charity together which one of my friends paid RM5k for a table and the Deputy Prime Minister is one of the guests.

First of all, the launching of the website of the district starts to irritate me because of the many photographs of the DG which is evident in the website link I provided. How could a club website be filled with a man's picture. It's not a blog nor beauty pageant website (no pun intended). Secondly, instead of highlighting the many charitable work that the club has done for the society, there's only a slide show on the man, his achievements and his family!

And lastly, the food. I've not had a good experience dining at the BTS hotel because the last time I was there for a dinner, the food was horrendous. The fish was not fresh, the soup tasted funny and everything is just so wrong. And sometimes, I was thinking whether it's my taste or was it really that bad. Actually it was bad because many of us didn't finish our food either. What amazes me was that even Vincent Tan was there himself, wouldn't he be able to tell that the food sucks big time? Hasn't he try his own hotel food many million times?

Oh, and the wine glasses they provide is an insult to those who drinks wine. The glasses are small, not even the standard wine drinking glass and not to mention the dirty stains on the glasses! I refused to drink that night. Hmmph... I think I'll say no more to dinners at BTS.

Wow! Rubbing shoulders with the datuks and the tan sris... Ya, some people use this social service clubs as a vehicle to promote their own interests, whatever those may be...and yes, the food at most of these posh places sucks big time. You pay to be there to see and be seen...not to eat or drink!

Was at one convention...and drinking water was provided and during the tea break, I had to go back into the ballroom...and I saw the hotel staff just wiping the used glasses with a piece of cloth napkin and putting them be used again when everybody came in.
