Bad experience, Horrible service/crew at Masferre, Sagada



Share

Sunday, December 25, 2011 - 2 comments

 -photo from TripAdvisor-

A few minutes ago, we had an early Christmas Eve dinner a Masferre. We had 2 tables reserved for 21 individuals. We even payed in advance.

Here was the scenario:

- On my way to the buffet table, my sister asked me to request some tissue paper/ paper table napkins. I told the waitress wearing a pink shirt. (excuse me, may i request for some tissue/table napkin?) Everything seemed okay because by the looks of it she and the other waitress behind the counter (wearing black) exchanged words regarding my request. But I waited for more than 15 minutes but the table napkin did not arrive.

- I went back to the buffet table to get some tea, the waitress in pink was standing nearby and so I followed up the request ("miss, uhm, where's the tissue...?) , she again nodded and went to the counter to talk with the woman in black w/c I saw go inside the kitchen. I went back to our table and waited but still no tissue. And now I see the waitress in pink behind the buffet table.

- When my sister went to get some more tea, she came back with a handful of table napkins. So I asked her where she got it and she told me that she only asked for it. "once" I got irritated and wondered, "are they ignoring my requests on purpose?"

- Just to confirm, I waited and started thinking on how to do another request, just in time, my aunt who was beside me wanted some water and so I presented myself to ask for it. This time I got the attention of a small woman that looked very boyish. ("May I request for 3 glasses of water?") She nodded....but again, I waited for 10 minutes and no water came. I looked at the counter and majority of the staff/crew were just there talking to each other. How hard is it to get 3 small glasses of water?

- This time I told my mother (who was the one who made the reservation with the owner/manager) I explained what happened. I asked my dad to call the owner to express my concern. When she came and heard us, she apologized and explained that "maybe" her staff who were according to her are contractual, were tired or frantic/panicked by all of the nights work.

HUH?! "again" how hard is it to get tissue paper/table napkin and 3 glasses of water?

I personally did not feel any sincerity from her (the owner/manager). She did not even apologize (in behalf of the staff) to me but spoke directly to the table.

I think there was a 3rd incident where - at the buffet table - I was about to get some pasta and right there and then, a different waitress quickly took the pasta away from the table. That time I thought that there must be something wrong with the spaghetti for them to take it away. But now that I've thought about it, I could say that it's a part of it...maybe a sinister plan against me? Why?

Because yesterday, we were also supposed to dine there. But my mom already had a reservation at Haddeku and our guide (as agreed earlier) was supposed to cancel but forgot to do it. And so, there was no choice but to proceed with Haddeku because the buffet was already prepared specially for our group.

But during that time, most of our family was already inside Masferre and by the time the rest of us got there, I was the one who told everyone (who was inside--sitting-- Masferre) about the predicament and that we have to leave and proceed with our previous reservation with Haddeku.

So, paranoid as I may seem, this is the only logical evidence/reason I can think of. They "maybe", thought that I cost them their earnings for that night. Because before we left, a staff called my mom's attention and told us that because of us/ our group, they rejected an earlier reservation by foreigners, and that we have to tell/ explain to the owner.

Tonight, when we left Masferre, that boyish looking woman was at the door and even had the guts to stare at me eye to eye...None of the staff came and apologized.

Thank you for ruining my Christmas Eve.

Oh and by the way, just to show some spirit of Christmas, I have to admit--in all honesty-- that their food was actually okay. I would have enjoyed every bit of it and would have had a fantastic time if it were not for Masferre's ill mannered staff/crew.

Luckily, last night on our way home, I happen to spot the very 1st branch and we decided to try it. They've just had their grand launching 2 weeks ago.

Tuesday, September 27, 2011 - 2 comments


Today, our entire family was stuck at home due to Typhoon Pedring. The cold wind and heavy rain yesterday made me feel sick. Taking cold medicine did not do much for me, but I found a solution. That is to drink Tea...Milk Tea!!! ^_^ Somehow, instantly my sneezing stopped for a while. *sigh* ^_^ Don't you just love the wonders of milk tea? ^_^

Another affordable drink in the market is Lipton's 3-in-1 Instant Milk Tea. It's easy to prepare. Just dissolve one pack/sachet in a cup of hot water. You can opt to add ice cubes to make it into a cold drink. The black tea based tea combined with milk and sugar makes a perfect blend.

1 box contains five 15g sachets.

It's nothing compared with Serenitea and Moon Leaf but during late hours when you start craving for some milk tea, Mine Shine is the answer. ^_^

TREE OF LIFE. A farmer in Dumaguete City climbs up a 20-foot coconut tree to gather coconut sap known as tuba which his wife will cook into coco sugar or ferment into coconut gin called “lambanog” to provide livelihood to his family. The tree is known for its many other uses, which makes it one of the most versatile trees in the tropics. Coconut Week ends Sunday with an exhibit and sale of coconut products at SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City. -- MANDY NAVASERO/CONTRIBUTOR

Homemade Dengue Mosquito Trap

Homemade Dengue Mosquito Trap
It’s been all over the news for the past few weeks. The number of cases are increasing at an alarming rate. Every year this is one of our country’s biggest problems. DENGUE VIRUS!

The season/weather isn’t even helping. With the constant rain, stagnant water can be found all over, and those are only the visible ones, there are also the hidden stagnant waters where more and more Dengue carrying mosquitoes are propagating.

There is only so much that we could do to stop the Dengue cases from increasing. At home we’ve started burning dead leaves, and wood to produce smoke that hopefully would drive the Dengue Mosquito a.k.a. the Aedes Aegypti away. But no matter how much smoke we make, we still find those pests inside our home and in our bedrooms.

 
(picture from Stanford.edu)
That is why with the help of research, I’ve discovered a different way of eliminating these pesky little blood suckers. I found instructions on how to make a home made mosquito trap by using stuff that we can find mostly in our kitchen such as: empty plastic bottles, sugar, hot water and yeast.

When we got there, I was pretty much impressed with the ambiance. Outside, you would not think it has a fine dining set up. But when you see the interiors, it's pretty much impressive. Although, when my sister made the reservations, the person in-charge allowed us to wear jeans. Plus, I saw several customers who came in wearing a regular t-shirt w/ jeans or walking shorts and sandals. It pretty much ruined the atmosphere. Nevertheless, it's all good.

Iced Tea can give you Kidney Stones

Thursday, January 13, 2011 - 0 comments

Who knew that drinking too much iced tea can give you kidney stones? I know for a fact that Tea is very healthy. I have been ordering iced tea since I knew there was such a drink. Thank goodness it was only once in a while. Only during the times we dine out and no other drink was available.

But what about those who offer bottomless/refillable iced tea? And what about my other relatives who practically consider instant iced tea as regular H2O? And to think that bottled, ready to drink Iced Tea is always available in the groceries and convenient stores....I better warn them about this.

Thanks to my sister, who was reading a fitness magazine, while we were killing time during our movie night. She borrowed the digi-cam that she gave me, and snapped a couple of pictures of the article.
