The Good , Bad and the Ulgy are still news. Without them, we would have no news! What more, it is FOC where the forumers takes time to share thier experiences and opinons.

Like it or not, it is still the common courtesy to appreciate it. If not, just put on the ignore list as they said - ignorance may be bliss.

Whatever it is, it is still better than the mainstream news because it is up close and personal opinons from the forumers without agendas and payment subscription.

No curry mee, no bslee, semtinel, seniors or newbies aint my cup of coffee.

And they are some out there who hate the Mean Chef ranting on MSG or KFC. Coke or Pepsi as it is not thier cup of tea. They prefer Chef Wan or Chef 2.

BTW, to BSlee - be like the The Terminator - I'll B Backkkkkkkkkk after La Vista. Heck, most of us also miss curry mee, mee rebus or soto mee.

Nope, what is ugly is that the news replies in the forum are too few to view.

I guess the threat of locked threads, bananas and bans have finally put paid to any discussions and replies beyond the tepid stage .... people just got tired ... I know I have ... I got so many locked threads, I lost count ... :p :p :D

Aisayman, sometimes the moderator can only see so much - he only got one eye aje. When one eye gets tired, he see nothing. After the Labour Day of many hours, he didnt lock the thread of properties adver until 7 replies. ;)

Apart from locked threads, it is the LOCK HORNS among the fellow forumers which gets interesting and exciting. IMHO. I dont see any harm done in that as nobody get killed or arrested over the verbal brawls in the internet forum. But of course, sometimes common courtesy should prevails in the spirit of intellectual forum such as in the usj.com.my. ;)

I have had benefited from the usj.com.my forum where I have read threads posted. Of course, there are the Good, bad and the ugly. But I think I am Mean and smart enough to know which is which. I would banana those who have been good enough to earn one - with my Bananarama dessert from Zinglicious plantation. As for those bad one, I do nothing and for the ugly, I just ignore them ;)

Now this is ugly - my thread - Healthy with no MSG was being removed after being told all the sudden that I did too much adver lately after 31000 views! :eek:
All along I thought if the owner wants to brag how good his food is, it was allowed at the owner perils with many forumers getting ready to jump to munch at the posting. I may be mean but I dont mean to brag but just doing what other forumers ask to upload some picture samples of the menu served which is available at Zinglicious.:confused:
I am sorry that part of the nutritional details were removed from the process which some of the readers might find it useful as a reference. :(
But then, would I stop posting apart from food? Nope, I have other interests as well - which ranges from 1Malaysia 2Politikus 3..........to share.
Some might like it hot, some dont. Until I have been terminated as a Banana, I am still standing, opps... posting It is Aloha instead of La Vista;)

I still haven't figured out where your restaurant is .... is there a sign on the outside?

Hi Zing, let others rave your resturant sorry but you indirectly or indirectly talk too much about your resturant so many are getting cheezed off! sorry i being honest here.
If you serve good food and reasonably priced with msg or not we will find you and we will come again.

Btw your signbord needs to be brighten up with neon nights it looks dead to me.

I am guilty of advertisement where people would asked me where my restaurant is? :confused:
Have been posting pictures but it seems to jammed up the pages and to me it is blatant adver. Found a way to shorten it with multi pictures to avoid clogging up the page. Seems to be a missteak :o
BTw, I do not intend to talk about my restaurant, I am more passionate of the issues which is on food nutrition and hygiene where I wanna to share with the forumers. Some value the MSG info though some might be pissed when I talk about coke or Pepsi. But then, some like it and others prefer that I tell them what is available and what is good, bad and ugly and most of the contents are heavily loaded with healthy links and comments about nutrition.
The column is also loaded with stars from gourmet tasters cum ex sous chef like Tupai but also slammings for being late service, no sexy waitress, poor location, too long winded talking about nutrition. Just give me my chicks or some sexy menu pictures.

Rather to get this post remove, you can either google it with wikimapia for direction, or simply it is just next to the Shell and Esso petrol station. The first corner next to Speedmart99.
Well, like they said - Good food is hard to find nowadays.

In the main forum - yes. But we were told that anyone can advertised how good of the crook or cook he is at his own perils. :D
It is not the moderators who would banana you but the actual bananas thown at you by the other forumers. :eek:
Actually, I am not ranting about loss of the posting as the moderators have to do what they got to do. Some might like it , some might not. ;)

That is one big bananalicious banana idea. But wouldn't it be blatant adver under the usj,com.my logo? I might be sued until my face turn yellow. :)

my unsolicited $500,000 advice. Yup, people used to pay me for advice :D

Zing, yr signboard is too 'busy'...go for something simple.
You are approaching it (and also most) very typical ipoh-mali china-ah pek's style, u wanna have everything, including the kitchen sink, in the limited space ! :eek:

A lighted up sign would be good as the place is visible from the mainroad across from the Toyota Showroom. Perhaps you want to consider flyers? There are 40K houses in USJ/Subang. Plenty of catchment and mostly Chinese (read: foodies)
By the way I would recommend my favorite - Seafood Velvet Rice. I happened to 'tapau' one afternoon and didn't get to eat it till almost two hours later. By then the gravy got a chance to get well-marinated in the rice, it was very good. Also took a baked chicken home and my clan of six oohed and aahed over it thru dinner and the next day's lunch. (chicken very big, couldn't finish in one sitting).

Ya.. Zing... imo, your signboard is too plain, i.e.
with a white background and thin font wordings and shapes.
One had to strain a bit to read it.

I think signboards with good background colors, thicker fonts
wordings, not cluttered would attract greater attention from passer-by(s).

Note this plain signboard,
http://www.penangtuapui.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/stone-bay-restaurant-outlook.jpg
but fortunately this is a big signboard with slightly bigger fonts as compared to zing's

here one that is more easily to read and that would get one's attention,
http://www.penangtuapui.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/inaka-japanese-restaurant-outlook-promo.jpg

The above compares between which signboard catches the eye easily on first impression.
However the contents and color (contrast and complementariness) arrangement is important to get the final delivery through.

Here are some sample signboards (http://www.google.com.my/search?q=restaurant+signboard+image&hl=en&biw=917&bih=545&prmd=ivns&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=bSfCTdCDLYzJrAf5uJHfAw&ved=0CBoQsAQ).

Zing, IMHO I feel that from the outside, I feel that the restaurant has very little tables and chair & I can't tell if the restaurant is open or close.

Maybe Zing can take part in AFC's Channel Restaurant Makeover show, Hahaha :-)

It would be "Good" if ther healthy with no MSG thread is brought back alive and kicking as there is much healthy references and info there to be shared.

Many "Ugly" truth about MSG and aspartamate and hygiene contents to know about "Bad" things hidden in your food. Moreover, it is not IMHO but the links from American Cancer Society or American Heart Associations and others where it is accredited with foremost medical specialists opinons. ;)

But then , many do not think much of nutrition aspect when they dine out. Just imagine even the honorary invited guests do not have a chance to request for a wedding dinner feast with no MSG and less salt even though his heart condition is being compromised with high blood pressure or heart diseases!

What I am trying do do is to encourage people to demand for healthy tasting food naturally.Consumers have the rights to demand for non corrupted food and may endanger your health and has no nutrition values. Corporation and caterers do it to minimise cost or to cover less fresh foods that is to be cooked.

Most people finds it bore and I attempt to furnish proof of healthy food can be tasty, too via the pictures lately. Not many can picture the "Surprise me" menu without pictures like Tupai with a nose for good food from those UK days of French and Italian kitchen experience. Aiyah, you guys also miss the stories narrated in that thread as well. :D

In fact, most would associate healthy food to be tasteless or boring. Too bad, I get " sudah potong " because of that of those sexy chicks pix :o

Anyway, for those who wanna to view those pictures , you can view those pictures at www.facebook.com/zinglicious which I have set up the account lately this year and that also because the patrons demanded for it. ;)
