'waiter, there's a fly on my bread!'



been wanting to blog this for a while.. juz hvn't found the motivation to do it... ahhaha

this was taken at breadtalk in city link... u know they have the open view section where u can see all the breads being prepared? well i was waiting for my friend there when i notice this pretty disturbing 'thing'...

lady baker was cutting the breads at the side (big machine wif many loaves of bread waiting... almost all covered)... on the other end of the table.. was this tray of glistening breads waiting to be cut or packed... and it wasn't covered... which is fine until u realise that there are FLIES around the place.. and up to three of them were sucking (yeah they suck...) on the surface of the uncovered breads...

i had to resist yelling 'FLY!!!!!' when i saw the first of them landing on the bread and moving around slurping up all the goodness on it... i know that there's always flies whenever there's food... but i reckoned if you have an 'open' kitchen.. the least you could do was to cover the food and not let potential customers look at flies hving a nice time on the breads that they could be buying!

i was totally grossed out (yah lah i'm one of those city people...) not becoz of the flies on food (i understand it happens elsewhere too..) but by the fact that they had trays of breads (the ones waiting to be cut) that were covered and this particular one was just left open... i'm sure the staff knew that there were flies........... right? can't they juz cover everything? sigh...

the saga continues... this time round they weren't at fault...

after being grossed out.. i was still attracted to the idea of 'pork floss mooncake' to go and take a look (free sample also helped... ;P)

so i was mulling around the mooncake counter thingy.. and this chinese lady was in front of me.. blocking the entire counter trying out the samples... nevermind.. i patiently waited my turn..

the sales person den came up to both of us wif the usual 'how can i help u'... the lady in front of me behaved like she was caught stealing samples... hand poised above the samples somemore... until her friend came and loudly said 'come and help me pick bread!'

AND THEN......... she threw the toothpick she was eating BACK INTO THE SAMPLES!!!! (insert super shocked look) like natural reaction lor... i was juz staring at the toothpick in the samples until the salesperson (apologetically) removed the toothpick... i wanted to like glare at the lady lor... grrrr...

dunno whether to go breadtalk in the future like tt.. ahhahaha... =P
