    Default Short Change by OldTown White Coffee

    This morning, passed by OldTown White Coffee@Far East Plaza, went in to buy one cup of coffee. Wow! The price is $2.20, more expensive than Ya Kun (think is $1.50) and cup size is small. When brought back office, open the cup lid and found that it is only 3/4 filled. Feel short changed, my last time patronizing OldTown.

    Bobian, walked in, asked for menu and waitress waiting to take order. How?

    I'm sending you $2.20.

    Now it becomes a treat offered by a Kopitiam Kaki here who buys you the drink.

    That should makes your day happy?

    I've just been back to Ipoh last Friday.

    It's RM1.8 now and soon RM2.

    I think the kopitiam owners in Ipoh are reading this thread.

    Inflation is happening everywhere, unfortunately salary increment is unable to overtake inflation.
