Penang,to and back...

Saw this movie when i was in Penang on Friday night. My friends and i thought of watching a horror movie to scare the crap out of ourselves. Boy, were we "shocked!"
First of all, we noticed that The Fog which was supposedly a horror movie was labelled as "U" (which meant it was for general viewing) Hmmm...something's not right here.
The movie revolves around this small town island where the founders robbed a ship of lepers in the early 1800s. The 4 founding fathers promised to sell the lepers a huge chunk of the island but ended up murdering the lepers after they received the payment.
The 4 founders than built up a nice town with the money and 2 generations later,the dead lepers decided to come back for revenge by murdering everyone who touches The Fog. Though the movie's slogan was "pay for your ancestor's sins"...the spirits of the lepers were randomly killing everyone (there goes their catch phrase!). After much killing and mayhem...the lepers killed off all of the descendents of the founders except the lead actor. Then curiousity overwhelmed the lead actress and she decided to approach the lepers. The leader of the dead lepers came forward and kissed her. Amazingly after the kiss, the lead actress became one of them and the whole legion of dead lepers left. Sounds stupid? It is. My advice to you is, DON'T WATCH IT. This B-grade movie is no where near scary and the story is flawed!!! Don't bother buying pirated VCD/DVD or downloading this crap movie. It is a total waste of your time. Just DON'T WATCH IT!!!!

In the picture on the right is a Japanese Steamboat Restaurant which is located on Gottlieb Road. My friends and i decided to give it a try since we have never encountered any Japanese steamboat restaurants around KL. Before we stepped into the restaurant, the owner and his cohorts opened the door for us and began their hard-selling technique. They literally forced us to enter by insisting that we browse their menu inside. Since there were only the 5 of us in the restaurant, the staff devoted all their attention to us. After a brief and loud description of their menu, we placed our orders. Each of us is given an individual steamboat wok and they asked if we wanted spicy (tomyam) or non-spicy soup. To our utter amazement, we were charged an additional RM2 for the spicy soup when we thought it was included in our meal. Not wanting to make a big fuss out of it, 3 of us ordered the spicy soup. When the soup finally arrived, it didn't taste like tomyam but instead, it was so spicy that it numbed our tastebuds. Having such a spicy meal, we were forced to drink a lot of green tea. Again, to our amazement, they do not provide refills for tea!!! The cup they served us with can only contain less than 2 gulps of tea. (Even Genki Sushi or Sushi King provide refills) To make things worse, the staff zealously came to our table to turn down the stove. Each time they do that, they completely turned off the stove and we had to wait for them to start the fire all over again. As for the food stuff they gave us for the steamboat, not only was it small in portion, the vegetables had black spots all over it. When asked about it, they insisted that the vegetables were fresh and there is nothing they can do about it. At the end, we finished our meal in a hurry, paid for it (which was overpriced) and left for another food court nearby to have supper. This is the first and the last time we will ever step into that restaurant.
For those who are staying in Penang or paying this island a visit, just remember not to patronize this restaurant. The address is as follows;

Restoran Yosenabe Sdn.Bhd.
7M, Ground Floor, Jalan Gottlieb,
10350, Pulau Pinang

Its main branch is located at

763, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah,
Sungai Nibong, 11900 P.Pinang

If you cannot remember the address, just remember this signboard.
Don't patronize this restaurant!!!!!
