    Bacon Diusir Cuma Dari Hero Citraland? 


    Unwilling to be unfair to Hero, I used my meanders around Jakarta this week to see if other branches have dissed pork-fans in the high-handed manner of their Citraland branch.

    Hero Jadi Halal? Bacon Diusir? 

    000000

    And they haven’t.

    Both at Puri Indah and Sarinah, non-halal shoppers are properly catered for by Hero management.

    So how come their Citraland branch is so indifferent to people who like bacon with their eggs…

    00000000000

    bacon-and-eggs

    000000

    ….or a nice pork chop for dinner?

    I did send off a polite but indignant enquiry to their central customer service officers, but no reply as yet.

    Let’s keep up the pressure till they do their job and get porcine products back on the shelves.

    Hero Jadi Halal? Bacon Diusir?

    Unwilling to idle at home on the first day of Ramadhan, I duly went out to forage for lunch and thought to do a bit of shopping.

    Shopping at Citraland is usually worth the effort, due to discounts, and, in Hero Supermarket, I was delighted to grab the last pack of 50% eggs.

    But what does one most like to eat with eggs?

    ——–

    bacon-and-eggs

    BACON, of course!,  

    oooooo

    So off I wandered down to the meat sector.

    Shock horror! The pork part had disappeared!

    All other items were on display as always, beef, chicken, fish…but that counter at the far end was gone.

    Now I know big stores enjoy shifting things around for no good reason, leaving regular customers baffled…

    …so I searched about for piggy foods, to no avail. Then I returned to the meat area and asked the guy behind the counter.

    “Is there bacon, pak?”

    “No,” was the bapak’s laconic response. No explanation, no ‘sorry, mister,’ no more than a negative grunt.

    So…

    What the Hell is Hero up to?

    Grogol and Tanjung Duren, the areas adjacent to where it’s located, are cosmopolitan, loads of students from Trisakti University, a large ethnic Chinese population, as well, naturally, as many other Indonesians who have no sectarian hang-ups about pork. Its removal is a serious customer disservice.

    Why has the pork disappeared?

    An explanation, an apology, then prompt restoration are all very much in order!

    Please demand them!

    Plaza Semanggi Gives New Meaning to The Word ‘Soon!’ 


    I’ going out now, but not to Plaza Semanggi!

    I did go there recently, and thought to inspect the new food market in the basement, which was promised as a replacement for the quite good Giant Supermart, where useful discounts were often to be had.

    Looking back on previous posts…

    Misteri Gunung Semanggi – Kemana Raksasanya? A Giant Vanishes! 

    …I see that particular promise was dangled back last year, about FOUR MONTHS AGO.

    Hence, imagine my chagrin when I travelled down the escalator only to see the same boring sign, announcing it would open ‘soon!’

    I went there to seek a new battery for my wrist-watch.

    Once upon a time, PS had lots of little shops where bargains were available, if you persevered.

    No more, not if a watch-battery’s what you’re after. I went to the only watch-shop I could find downstairs – there was one at ground-level, but its exterior was so glitzy, I took one look and concluded it wouldn’t be within my price-range – and after deep discussion, the proprietor offered me a battery for Rp.85, 000 – which I naturally spurned.

    I knew that the honest orologists at Permata Hijau would do better, but since yesterday I was at Citraland, I tried there…

    Yesterday’s visitor had confirmed my belief that Rp.50K was the most I should pay, so I wandered hopefully into the first promising store and asked.

    Rp.150,000!

    I wandered back out, disgusted.

    Only three or four doors down, heading towards the Hero supermarket, there’s another little shop. In I went, and emerged five minutes later with a working watch, the battery having cost me exactly what Wonder-Visitor had predicted.

    AND I got eggs in Hero on 50% discount!

    Hurray!  

    Today’s traditional Sunday breakfast is a sure thing!
