SCI Kitchen again

The guy from SCI who supposed to come today to install my glass shelves & do other touch up plus fix my 6 kitchen drawers DID NOT show up today. I had to make several phone calls to the factory just to find out if he is coming as promised earlier. And I even try to call that guy since morning . But as usual, he switched off his handphone. And only when I called the salesperson that I made the deal/sales with, did i finally know that the guy was on MC. How could the factory people didn't tell me about this early is the morning. Normally employees will inform their office if they couldn't come to work on that particullar day. So don't blame me for thinking that the SCI people doesn't give a damn about fixing my paid RMXX k kitchen cabinets!!

The guy actually promised to come on Saturday Nov 15, 2008. But he didn't come on last minute notice . Imagine today & Saturday, we had to wait for them. We had wasted our precious time just to have them fixed our kitchen cabinets.

So when are they going to come again? Well, according to the salesperson there A!N! , she will reconfirmed on the next date. Imagine how would u feel when she said that the next available date is Saturday Nov 22, 2008! Meaning to say I have to wait for almost a month just to get my drawers fixed, my glass shelves to be install & loose handles & doors to be fixed and all the other touch-up that they are supposed to do..

Gosh!!! I can only pray to HIM that this things wont be drag on much further.

New house with new neighbours

I know it is still early to say this. But I'm kinda thankful and like my neighbours. The wives especially. Since the Malay families are the minority in my housing area community, we the ladies of the house have formed a email circle group. Thus, we will be replying & forwarding emails on a daily basis so far..

Of course there are one or two who are not so freindly & warm in personality. That can't be helped and avoided in any neighbourhood. But I am surprised to see that most of my DH ladies are really freindly and warm and easy to talk too. We all know how us women can detech straight away another person's personality during the 1st gathering or meeting. It's so easy to tell if that lady is bitchy or gatal type just by judging the way they talk and their body languages. For men it will be a different thing. Exclude my hubby pls :0

Last Saturday , one of the malay neighbours had a kenduri kesyukuran & house warming cum raya open house too. The food was home cooked & prepared by closed friends & neighbours too. What make it interesting was that we the ladies came to help on the night before the kenduri day.

It was interesting to see us busy talking about that event via emails on Friday. Imagine working ladies eager to come to that neighbour's house just to help with the cooking. It's like gotong royong for a kenduri at kampung! And yes, that was what the atmosphere was like at our neighbour's house on that malam Sabtu hari Jumaat.

There we were cutting onions, potatos, kunyit etc. It was so like mcm at kampung ... And it was a bit strange too as not very often we will experience this in this city life! For someone like me who used to grow up in kampung, all those things sounded so familiar to me.. It was so goood!!
Even my DH ladies too were having fun ...

What else do I like about my DH ladies so far? Well, at the very moments, Rini is busy checking for flight to Bandung. Yep! The DH ladies are planning a shopping trip to Bandung sans husbands & kids. It will be a 3 days 2 nites trip .

Am I going? Yes! That is after discussing it with my other half.. Only after much talk and discussion, did I decided to go. It's has never been easy to leave hubby & Arissa behind. And I always be feeling like this whenever I had to go for a business trip outstation. Will Arissa be ok? Will he be ok? Those are the kinds of questions that will go spinning inside my head.

Dearest hubby said take this as like a mini get-away for me . To relax and unwind and simply to enjoy myself with the other housewives. Shopping theraphy? I don't think so. Most of the time, it's me who end up not buying anything whenever I go shopping with others. How my sis and my friends will complain about this for making them spend so much !

Btw, what is DH? Well , I thought it was for D' Harmonives ... But it was actually Desperate Housewives!!

My life today

Lunch was at Biba's Cafe today . It was a business lunch with our bankers.. Main reason on why we choosed it was because of the location which is near to my office. Plus we never had eaten at this hotel before.
So how was the buffet lunch? Not worth the money that our bankers paid for.The food spread was so biasa2 aje for a 5 star hotel like MO. I was suprised to see the food there. To give it a Japanese appeal, they had the sushi station there. But small section only and limited choices too. And as usual they have the salad bar. The rest of the other food can easily be found in any other 3 star hotel or one like in Istana Budaya.
And as usual , I got stomachache whenever I ate the oysters. I had TWOOOO!!! Unlucky me.
And thanks for blogging thingy, I came across one familiar face that I sometimes see at Elin's blog. I'm sure it was your hubby la dear..

SCI Kitchen

I'm soooooo fed up with this kitchen cabinet company. They have not finished installing my cabinet since August 2008. Imagine now is November 2008 . And they have not yet finished doing my kicthen cabinet.

Dah lah it's like day light robbery for me as we have paid full payment for the kitchen & wardrobe cabinets. They said its the policy for customer to make 60% payment after closing the deal. And balance of 40% payment need to be maid a week before the installation process.

My misery started when they sent us the cincai installer to install the cabinet for the kitchen & wardrobe. That installer just wanna get his work done & be paid straight away without doing it properly. So imagine now how one of the top corner kitchen cabinet is not alligned & senget. Even the finishing work of this 1st intallers was bad & lousy.

This kitchen & wardrobe installation too made me to apply unneccesaary leave . I had exhausted my limited & precious leave just for the sake of them. Have u heard kitchen installation that took one month to intall? This is minus all the touch up of sharp corners & edges.

Another things that I hate most about this SCI is the staffs itself. From the lorry drivers to factory workers to the big boss himself( i heard it is a lady boss ) . The lorry driver will just park the lorry suka hati dia at your porch. With that, one of our tiang porch dah ada holes & scratched. And the staffs who punggah the piles of barang for installation just punggah sukahati dia. They dropped the kayu2 with a big bang on our newly tiles floor. And our grills also was scratched by their carelessness.

The staffs? Well, don't even think la if they will call u as promised . It happened to me till today. I had to call them when they didn't call me back as promised. Come on la...

And another things that just irk me is that the staffs will blames other staffs & come up with all excuses when we asked why the call was not made as promised.

U can figure it out yourself how much me & hubby have paid when we had the SCI to do the whole house cabinets. 3 rooms cabinets. And one 22 feet long kitchen cabinet! Our hard earn money being daylight robbed by SCI.

What about the big boss of SCI? That person also promised to call us. But did he honor his words? NOPE!

So please, please ! try not to use SCI if u can avoid it. The we chosed them in the 1st place was because it has been in this business for 10 years. But that doesn;t match up with its poor quality of workmanship & customer service. Of course the price is one of the affordable one.. And u may be tempted to use them judging at the look of their advertisement be it in the leading English newpapers & impiana & dapur magazines.

They still owe me my glass cabinets. I've been calling them since Friday last week. Yes. Again they promised to call me back to arrange on the installation. But no phone call until they close their shop on that Friday. And yesterday, I called them again. Same promises were made by them to me. I had to call the salesman whom I deal with for help. So? Did any of the SCI customer service staff call me before the day ends yesterday? NOOOOOOO !

And after 2 months, my kitchen drawers surface dah tertanggal! It should have been screwed but they only stappled it!!! Yep ! They stappled it!!!! And I only put my fork and spoon there which only enough to cater 12 peoples only... EEEEEEEEE! Geramnya!

Of course to non meticilous eyes, my kitchen & wardrobe cabinets look pretty . But if u really look at the details inside out, it is badly done. And our hard earned money!!!!

More to come next: MACY..

MPH warehouse sales

What do I see from my shopping trip to the MPH warehouse sales? Less of Malay facess! ;) How my own race was the monority buyers over there when it comes to books. Rugi diaorng tak datang.

The book sales was good actually. Infact me and hubby spent alot on that day. We got great books at a very low prices. Imagine spending spending less than RM200 for almost 12 books?

And what i like most was one book that i accidently found inside one of the many boxes on the floor . Books inside the boxes were sold at a very low prices. So founding that book was like me winning a treasure hunt!!!

Yeah, it's a foot reflexology book. That is why i put up the photo upthere... It's worth it to learn about foot massage. Why? For simple reason : we can massage our spouse's tired body! Refresh the body via foot massaging .
