No food?

I have never tried Kingwood, but another 4-star hotel in Sibu. My general impression is the boss wants to save money and hired some less competent people, thus compromised the standard of the hotel.

A 4-star hotel should have a balance in the kind of people they hired, at least in terms of language. If you want to do international business, it may as well be better to have a few who speaks Mandarin in the front desk.

We know that those who speak Mandarin are more expensive to hire, but do you want to keep a good reputation of your hotel?

Food wise, why can't we introduce some local food? The breakfast buffet is of the same style as west Malaysian hotels. That is nonsense. I got bored of it after two days and gave away the coupons to my friends. I myself went to eat kampua outside.

stp: Sorry for the late reply. I was travelling to Bintulu,Miri and Marudi.The hotel's restaurant serves local,Chinese and Westen food.The buffet breakfast has more than 20 choices of food which include cakes and fruits.

anonymous: That is the typical Foochow way of managing businesses.In a long run it will lose out.

abana: Thanks for your comment. FYI, the Tokina lens is 12-24mm

yan: haha, I only know now that you are also a kay-poh.Is she beautiful? You will probably see her during your next trip to the hotel at the reception.

tony: Yes, it is a nice and cosy hotel

If you are not kay-poh, you won't stay in the newspaper business for long. Or if your nature is not so, you will learn the kay-poh-ism in no time.

Have been there. Did not see the beautiful girl at the reception le...

yan: haha,I didn't want to be a kay-poh, so left the journalism circle early. May be she was off shift when you arrived.

Cool hotel. Really impressive. The design is almost similar to hotels in Kuching and also in KL. May i know are there any 3G services (especially Celcom 3G services) over there? Which means at the hotel, at the town areas and at the administrative offices?
