    These are so called lao jiao...I have a friend whom had a short spell working at DFS....she always kena bullied in shift schedule and was assigned to the not so popular counter....the liquor and cigarates are all chope by more senior staffs and these are the things that they are good at

    I concur, the last time, have to search for these ladies who seemed 'magneted' to foreigners to ask them if the have any 1/2 sized wines. Straight away says no, even though I knew that I have bought them before. I found them myself in the end!

    Nah... I dun usually shop at DFS since I rarely drink these days.

    How's the taste of Ice Wine? I did heard it's quite good.

    The elusive Sake juz can't be found on our local DFS though...

    i think there are others with similar situation..

    me too.. but i bo chap them..

    usually, i would walk one round see wat i wan.. if someone did bother to help me, then i help them.. otherwise, after deciding wat i get, i jus get a basket, put the things i wan and i go pay.. mostly by this time while walking or queueing towards cashier, they will come to u..

    REALISTIC ...

    These are the people who really lack service standards. They deserve to lose their rice bowl.

    I didn't know this sort of thing happens.

    If she didn't serve me, why should she get commission? Should report to DFS management.

    service at airport is very bad.
    In late september,while returning from a trip.
    I went to push a trolley,then an old uncle scolding 2 foreigner shouting "there got trolley cannot use meh!" in hokkien cause the trolley arranged quite messy.
    I wonder how they understand and the 2 foreigner was also bemused.

    Desert Wine.... Ice Wine....

    Couple that with a good reunion dinner. I guess that would be nice. Thnx guyz! I'll take note of it for my next trip!

    Anyway, back to topic, the service standards at DFS shops I thought was quite ok. But if u guys had taken midnight flights (ie, reach Changi Airport at 1am type), u'll notice that the ppl seem a lot slower than usual and they wun tend to smile as much.

    actually look around, only about 2 sales lor... den i won't doubt the cashier if u din have a card, will not help them key in as well...

    think we should ask instead, if we self service, can we have cash rebates?

    Do you know the diff. between Inniskillin's normal (2003), Gold Reserve (2004) and the Platium Reserve (2002) Icewine? I have 1 of the normal and the Platium and 2 gold. Thinking of getting more when I come back from China end of this month. May get 1 Rudy Reserve too. Is the Inniskillin's Rudy Reserve Icewine good?
