Drinking Cockroaches At Sizzling Pepper Lunch

I can't imagine how could I have not seen the cockroach (the size of a 25-centavo coin) inside my 16oz Coke zero during lunchbreak at the Sizzling Pepper Lunch at Shangri-La Mall last friday. I thought I was having a great meal. It was free to begin with, I was enjoying my beef pepper rice, everyone's having a great time until one of my officemates pointed to me that one unwelcome visitor inside the glass of my coke zero.

I didn't feel like panicking. I calmly asked for the manager's attention and showed her the bug inside my coke. Of course she was really sorry and offered to replace it with water. I said no, how could a glass of water replace my coke zero? Instead, I asked for a free coke zero refill plus a free complimentary dessert. She accepted my offer and hurriedly replaced my coke. I didn't see if she used the same glass or not. I was confident enough that she would give me a new and much sterile glass fileld with coke zero as replacement.

I was too shy to ask for a refund of what he had for lunch. Maybe I was just forgiving and knew that it was an honest mistake. However, it made me more cautious on how my surroundings look like. I can't let bugs bother me again like that.

But despite of what had happened, I still love Sizzling Pepper Lunch. I can't let a single incident ruin things. Besides, I still feel okay. I didn't feel nauseous and didn't puke after that ordeal. I still love their food. And I though I learned one important life lesson. I can't let small mishaps dampen my happiness. Crap happens in life.

I am sorry about that, Je. But yeah, reading your blog didn't discourage me from going to Pepper Lunch again. My experiences with the resto are all good.
