Disappointment with BQ Services! [Condemn]

 
TECHNICIAN PROCEEDED WITH REPAIR WITHOUT SEEKING OWNER'S CONSENT!
 
 
My flat screen TV was spoilt. Called BQ Services to repair. Technician (Mr. Tan) came down to repair and said need to take the whole television back for repair. Upon leaving HE SAID "Before ANY major repair which need to incur high cost, he will inform us to see if we want to proceed."
 
When the Television is ready for collection, they said we need to pay SGD300 because they did a major repair to the Television. I was shocked and didn't expect to hear this. They did NOT inform us before the repair. And request us to pay SGD300. For this instance, they are already at fault.
 
Leaving us with no choice, and they said we just pay SGD250 can already. At the moment, we thought since they have already repaired, we just accept it. And since its REPAIRED, we expect it to be in good condition again.
 
Right AFTER ONE MONTH, the television has a line at the middle of the screen and some time later the entire screen turned black, totally couldn't watch anything. When called the manager of BQ Services, apparently also named "Mr Tan", he said the warranty only last for 1 month after the repair. When my mum spoke to him, he even hung up the phone. I told him, in the very first place they are in the wrong by proceeding with the major repair without informing us, hence I demanded that he either bring the TV back to repair without charging us again or refund us the SGD250 we have paid for repair. He did NOT response thereafter.
 
I wanted to report this matter to CASE, but I've lost the receipt of the repair and still need to make payment to lodge a CASE report, kinda not worth it, hence I'm writing here as a review to share with you guys about BQ Services and DO NOT ENGAGE THEIR SERVICES ANYMORE!
 
Please help to share with your love ones and friends!
They are located at Jurong area, be careful!

My friend Joey and I were there on the first day of their show in Singapore!


Drum Tao 2019 - Rhythm of Tribe!

 


Both of us truly enjoyed the show.. especially the segment whereby there was LED display.. which really impressed me a lot with the combination of the drum beats.. they just synchronise it very well. At certain parts of the show, it was like high-octane performance and I felt like my heart beat was beating together with 'em. Lol~!!

I was once a drummer as well.. in my a Chinese orchestra in my Primary School days.. and I had 5 drums to play with at one go. It was very long time ago.. after watching the show.. I felt like playing drums again! ha..



During the intermission.. there are Drum Tao merchandise items that you can purchase just outside the theatre.


There are Drum Tao T-shirts as well.


My friend bought a $60 DVD .. OMG!! lol~!



All merchandise items bought are entitled to get signatures from their performers after the show.
And so... my friend got 3 signatures. haha..

 
It was indeed a nice show to watch!
I've watched Drum Tao for quite a few times already.. and this.. I would say IT'S THE BEST SO FAR!! If you miss it, then too bad! :P

WHEN GHOST MEETS ZOMBIE 【女鬼爱上尸】

 

 
The movie tells the story of Pong (Nathan),who turns into a zombie when saving his town from a disaster. He led a mechanical and aimless life until a female ghost named Zhen Zhen (Ferlyn) came into his life. Zhen Zhen, whose pet phrase is “If you have no dreams, you are no different from a walking zombie.” believes one should live life to its fullest. Hilarious drama unfolds when Zhen Zhen possesses Pong to fulfil her pageant dreams and forces him to join a “Mr Perfect” competition.

Was at the Special Preview Screening of this movie last Saturday.. It was really fun with the actors Nathan Hartono and Jeremy Chan, and actress Ferlyn G came to the front of the theatre greeting all of us warmly and further introduced the movie to us.. mentioning about wad were the funny moments that happened during the filming etc.


I personally like Ferlyn's sweet smile.


And also Jeremy's comedian way of cracking jokes!

CINCH BELTS

 
What I'm wearing on my waistline.. is a classy belt from Cinch Belt!
 
 
 
It has no holes - clean look!
 A simple design that is suitable for office wear.
 
 
 
One of the best and most comfortable belt I ever wore.


* * *

Here's how it works!
 


Very easy to buckle it up!
 https://buy-cinch.com/



Here's the brown version of the belt which I'm matching it with my grey pants and a dark blue top.
It matches really well.. it can also be matched with something more of a casual wear, as brown is pretty versatile.



LUXURIOUS COMFORT
Quality that lasts a lifetime
Made with 100% Full Grain Leather - the outer-most layer of a hide - known for its superb strength and durability.
 
 
 
The belt can be easily removed by pulling the buckle outwards and it would be loosen.
It is free-size up to 48" waistline. If it's too big, it can be easily resized to your desired size. A perfect gift idea! Not to worry about size!
 
 

 
Traditional belts have holes about 1 inch apart. This Cinch Belt does not has holes.. it has these tracks on the inner side of the belt for it to hook on. With this design.. it allows micro-adjustment of the belt by 0.25 inch per adjustment, making it even more precise and to the comfortable tightness of your belt.
 
 


Perfect Fit!

With this micro-adjustments of only 0.25 inch, it guarantees a perfect fit that's not too loose nor too tight!
 
 
 
What I personally like about this Cinch Belt is that it is easy to wear and it as a clean and simple designed buckle. I always like things to go simple.. and Cinch Belt has fulfilled the style I adore.

* * *


I personally had a food tasting that day at the ToriYard!
The food are really very nice and below are the pictures taken by me with my comments.


Sides


Salmon Skin Salad ($14)
Signature fish skin salad.
I would say.. this is very nice! I like the crispiness of the salmon skin.



Tebasaki Gyoza
Deep fried stuffed chicken wing gyoza
This is pretty interesting with some meat stuffed into the chicken.. making it a gyoza!
It tasted very well!



Wagyu Sumiyaki
Charcoal grilled waygu
The succulent beef was very cooked to the right doneness with the outer layer well-done! Truly savoury.



Ika Maruyaki
Grilled Hokkaido giant squid with ginger and lemon
And I totally like this squid that is so tasty.. it tasted even better with drips of lemon.


Yakitori


Tebasaki
Classic chicken wings with seasalt, lemon and sesame.



Momo
Signature chicken thigh with seasalt and lemon



Tsukune
Handmade meatball served with onsen egg & teriyaki sauce
I love this! Its so interesting to have it mixed with the onsen egg and it tasted really well!


 

Buta Asparagus Maki
US duroc pork belly asparagus roll
 
 


Okura (V)
Lady finger
This may seem pretty simple vege to all.. but pretty enjoy munching it!
Afterall vegetables are good for all!


Rice

 
Buta Karamiso Zousui
Spicy pork belly porridge
 For this.. its not really that spicy actually.. hence those who can't take spicy food can still go for this. As the rice is soaked in some sauce or soup.. basically porridge, it is very easy to consume even if you're kinda full already. The taste of it was great!
 
 
Dessert
 

Japan Premium Seasalt Ice Cream (V)
Hokkaido prefecture
OMG! I would love to have this again!
Have you tried Seasalt Ice Cream before?
Its time to head down to ToriYard to try if you have not!
I would say its a very nice combination to have it paired with the cornflakes.. creating a simple ice-cream dessert.
