Quality Control

I was recently in Phuket (my first time ever!) and came across this gem by Patong beach.

The ISO 9001 certification must be a huge pulling point for customers.

Posh Fast Food

I've noticed that certain chains of restaurants are marketed differently in various countries, and Pizza Hut is no different. The Pizza Hut in Australia is pretty standard from what I recall (it's been a really long time since I've ordered anything from there). Decor is basic and you have your usual fare - pizza, pasta, garlic bread, soft drinks.

In Hongkers, it's a lot more upmarket - classier furnishings, a line to get in (but I think that applies to most eateries in HK) and quite a comprehensive menu featuring pizza, pasta, garlic bread, soft drink, but also various salads, stuffed chicken wings, soups, entree platters and exotic beverages. What really pushes it over the top though is the dessert.

Who would have thought Pizza Hut served something like this??

There are even customised Pizza Hut skewers for the fruit. :D

Blog Poll and the Results

I haven't blogged since December - terrible I know - and other than the standard reasons of lack of time and general malaise, I found that the more I didn't blog, the harder it was to come back to it because I felt like I had to play catch up for the things I missed. Obviously the longer I'm slack the more there is to write about, which then makes me feel more reluctant... and so cycle goes.

Also, since relocating to Hong Kong, I've done absolutely zilch in the sewing stakes. I know the blog is called 'SuBoo: sewing and stuff', and a lot of 'stuff' has been happening, but I somehow feel guilty about neglecting the first part. It's almost like I feel like I'm lying if that makes any sense.

So. To just get over it all, I used Facebook Questions to see what my friends thought about it all.

The results were interesting - and the friends who read my blog most regularly and also have blogs of their own were the ones who wanted me to play blog catch-up (totally understandable!), but after having the question up for voting for a week, the winner was option 1 - 'Pretend the last 4 months didn't exist and start new posts from today'.

Am I relieved? If I'm being honest, yes! 4-5 months is a huuuuge effort to catch up on and I'm pretty sure I mentioned the word 'malaise' previously somewhere... so from this post onwards, I'll be posting a little more about 'stuff', and who knows, some of the stuff that happened earlier this year might make its way in here...

Thanks for voting peeps!
