    So I asked, I just want normal soup, but he said CANNOT.

    So I asked, your buffet $22 only apply to the food, but with no soup...so you cannot cook the food...He say "YES! no choice!"

    So I went to other shops, some offer $5 some offer $10..

    We finally went to one shop which offer $17.90+++++, and $5 for the soup.
    The mutton...haiz...throw against the wall and may not even break up..

    Scary...
    if i would u, i tell the waiter : " i will piss into the steamboat and make it soup for u to drink ! "

    must be something wrong... they are waiting for the 4million people to patronise then close down?

    Bring your own water, soup stock, steamboat, your own power generator or power plant.. Add water, start to boil. Then pay for ingredients only.

    Nah... I prefer raw meat with a touch of soy instead... tabasco sauce is also a good idea.
