Stupid Panmee Boss

Today, I’m going to badmouth about Jojo Panmee. No, it’s not like what you think actually. The panmee there isn’t that awful to the extent that I would make a blog post complaining about it. Neither were there lizards nor insects in the food I ate. So what is it, you ask? The boss of Jojo Panmee, let’s just call him Mr.T. I actually checked his name card to get his name. I thought he must be regretting to have given me the name card now. But but, Mr.Hik forbids me to include his real name here. Pfft!


What did little Mr.T do, you wonder? The fact is, he’s MrHik’s old schoolmate or something. In spite of that, I am still going to badmouth him! No, it never occurs to me that my boyfriend might bump into Mr.T one day and felt awkward all because of my blog post. It’s none of my concerns, because I’m just inconsiderate like that. After all, it was little Mr.T’s fault to have offended me, or us, to be precise. It just happened that I’m a petty girl who never forgets, so instead of shutting my mouth, I dug out his photo to tell you a story.


One day, Hik received a phone call from Mr.T. He invited Hik to his panmee shop to eat panmee. He asked Hik to bring along a few bloggers and said that it would be his treat. There are a few branches of Jojo Panmee, but we were supposed to go to the one in Serdang for the food review. Hik called along Yat, Ren and another friend, so off we went to Serdang. In case you aren’t aware, I’m staying at Setapak, which is a big distance away from Serdang. One south and one north, very cilaka far okay? But I thought it was alright, since we were going there to eat for free.


It was a free treat, so I had no reason to be kiam siap when I place my order. Of course I didn’t mean to be greedy! Just ordered 1 bowl of panmee, shui gao soup and fried fish cake. Those were meant to be shared among the 5 of us, already considered little hor! Then we makan lah. Nom nom nom. Took photos in order to blog. 1 thing I remembered, Yat taught Mr.T how to advertise his panmee through Twitter and how to expand his business by using Internet. So apart from advertising his panmee shop through our blogs, we also taught him how to catch up with the new generations!


Soon, Mr.T gave us another plate of fish cake. He even brought us a few bowls of tong shui for dessert. So I thought, wah, not bad hor this boss, so generous de?


See? Hikaru very happy.


Until the bill came. WTF! The boss was standing right there, holding the bill, waiting for us to pay! Total amount RM60++! “I thought it’s free???” I whispered to Hik. He just shrugged. I swear I was burning at that particular point of time. I had an urge to confront Mr.T in front of all his customers. But something stopped me from within, telling me not to make a scene as he’s Hik’s friend. I did not voice out then. But I soon regretted. I could have pointed it straight to Mr.T’s face, didn’t you promise that it was your treat??? Who does he think he is, trying to get free publicity from us? Oh, maybe he thinks he’s Hik’s friend. The point is, we went all the way to Serdang to do a review for his panmee, but at the end of the day we had to pay for our meal??? We didn’t even get paid to blog about it! Is RM60++ a lot for him??? Does he think that 5 reviews aren’t even worth RM60??? We know perfectly well that there is no such thing as free meal. Yes, there’s no such thing as FREE PUBLICITY either! Let me do the math. RM60 divided by 5, leaving RM12 for each person. So if we really do get free treat, each person ate merely RM12. And not forgetting the effort we put into the blog post and the petrol consumed all the way to Serdang. Does he have any idea how much on average a blogger like me receive for an advertorial? We are worth real hard cash, not just some crappy food! What’s more, we didn’t get free treat! Despite the publicity, he demanded us to pay for his mediocre food! And that’s not the main point yet. The point to the point is, he promised earlier on that it would be his treat! We wouldn’t even ask along the bloggers if he didn’t say it was free. So in this case, isn’t he considered a liar? We felt like we got cheated! Imagine being cheated by a boss who was supposed to be trustworthy, but turned out to be a liar who didn’t fulfil his promise. Angry not?


So for his own stupidity, he’s had me making his Jojo panmee infamous. Some of you might be thinking right now, “Kate is just being a petty bitch!”, “It’s only RM60, pay la”, “Small matter, why make it so big?” If you’re thinking of any of those, FUCK YOU! Proven that your IQ level isn’t sufficient to be able to comprehend whatever mentioned above. Read the previous paragraph again if you still don’t get it. And if you still don’t get it after rereading, kindly take a knife and stab it hard at yourself.

Some people are just too afraid to voice out; some people prefers to avoid troubles at all cost; while some people like me, enjoys being a loud mouth bitch who creates a big fuss out of a mistake committed. Question is, what would you do if the same shit happens to you?

WTF!! Asking bloggers to come for food review and then gives them the bill?? He's only like treating pan mee, some other restauraneur treat high end stuff like steam boat, pork ribs for free one leh. So kiam sap one the boss. I'll sure boycott this pan mee, it doesn't really look good to eat even. There's a lot of pan mee that is way better.

Copykate said...

simon: the food wasn't that bad but the boss spoilt it all. whenever i see jojo panmee, i think of him. it kinda turns off my appetite. so i probably won't be eating it again. no doubt that there are a lot of better panmee out there. hmpf

Isabell Soo said...

A boss who never keep his promises...He will be the epik phail for the rest of his career....

*Sam Sammy* said...

Screw him! Pan Mee is such a normal food, with juz flour,Bones, Ikan Billis and the special leave vege thing, it's damn cheap and he makes tons of profit.....tell him to go to hell!!

Copykate said...

sam sammy: there are a few branches. there's one in kuchai lama also. a boss who owns so many shops ought to keep his promise right! it's only RM60+ how dare he asked the money from us! cis

Copykate said...

sam sammy: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA u're more agitated than me. if he weren't hik's friend, i would have included a lot of foul words in this post. LOL

*Sam Sammy* said...

Copykate said...

ben: doesn't matter, cause i'm not against the panmee. just wanna tell people how bad the boss is. now everyone knows his face! teehee

JunJun-Riko said...

I think u should remove all the photos of the food in this post to make your purpose of writing this post more effective. don't give him any publicity at all, just straight to the point complaint bout him and promote nothing about his food. coz right now im thinking more of the food and how you guys got conned, and nothing bad bout the boss or his restaurant.

Copykate said...

junjun-riko: i think i took such nice photos of the food. especially the shui gao. lol. those are solely for illustration purpose. kinda neutralise the negativity huh XD

Copykate said...

weiyi: once you've read my entry, i'm sure u'll remember what he did whenever u see him on the street XD
