Yesterday, MW & K took me to Bolsa Chica/Westminster area. They are looking for the best deal to go back to Malaysia so off we went to the travel agent that is supposed to offer the cheapest yet best deal. We got there only to be told that the offer is before the taxes which can easily be around USD250/pp. Yes I know that its a norm but usually they'll mention in the site that the rate does not include the taxes but its not on this case. After a few minutes talking to the agent, I realise that she doesnt really know anything (she doesn kno abt code-sharing!) and that just pissed me off (whc is not difficult for me to be). She's just another sales person :P And I found myself missing my travel agent friends back in Kl who knows what they're doing. sigh..
After the failed attempt at securing the "best deal" off we go to the Asian Mall to get something to drink and eat. Iv never been there before so the moment I stepped into the mall, I was taken back to KL. Sg Wang Plaza to be exact! Well, almost. The kind of shops and food court reminds me of sg wang plaza except that everything is in viatnamese rather than cantonese/english/malay and the fact that the food vendors were surprisingly rude. Yes, you read me correctly. They were not at all friendly unlike the viatnamese in Vietnam. When I visited Vietnam in 2003, the people were very friendly and polite. I was taken aback alright! What happen to them? Does living in the US make them lose all that that good quality? Im not saying all of them are rude but Iv never been treated that way before. How can you be rude to your customers? Maybe they just dont care if we dont come back since there's a huge viatnamese community esp in OC?
Anyways, overall it was a nice day. I got to hang out with my friends and not to mention having had a dose of sugar cane juice and some durian. ;)
