Hot Ice Cream Man

For photos, please visit Rubbish Eat Rubbish Grow.

The main attraction of the ice kalim shop is - the hot man. Seriously. He's a man in his 40s, not a boy, looks a bit like Tay Ping Hui, but with a broader and more masculine face. Older than Tay Ping Hui, but definitely more attractive. And when he spoke, I was blown away. I thought he's just a hokkien beng but he spoke with immaculate thick English in his deep sonorous voice. Very charismatic, sexy and friendly too.

But to tell the truth, I wanted his number only to give to Hookerlily because in my heart, there is only space for a little person. 14K brought me here because he knew I wanted ice cream after eating at Peperoni. He didn't put it that way, he just said he wanted ice cream. And I thought, he didn't even have sweet teeth, and then it took me 2 seconds to realize he was doing it for me. I can be so dense.

The next best thing, after the man, and after trying Mao Shan Wang ice kalim, Lychee Mint, and Ferrero--again 14K took two flavors because of me but he didn't say it--I think the lychee mint was so-so, the Ferrero was too bitter for my sweet heart, but the Mao Shan Wang Durian Ice kalim was the bomb. It smelt so strongly of durian that my entire breath stank. It's like more durian than ice kalim! 14K hates durian so I forced him to kiss me after I ate 4 mints and still, I think he puked a little in his mouth. I have sore throat every time after I eat durian, and today, I woke up with my throat vulnerable, that's how potent the ice kalim is. Infinitely better than the durian ice kalim at Udders.

I am honestly quite surprised at the positive reviews Blic got as my own experiences at the place have been far from pleasant. The ice-cream and ambience were ok, but it was the service standard that could do with a whole lot of improvement.

I bought a few vouchers for the place as it looked quite promising and I thought it could be a good place for my friends and I to hang out in the future.

During my first visit, there were two staff at the store - a man and a lady. The man got up from a table at the side and gave my friend and I a blank expression. There was no smile and he just looked at us like he was bored and would rather be elsewhere, making both of us feel very unwelcome.

We placed our orders but because I didn't read the fine print we were limited to just single scoops and beverages. When we tried to order waffles and double scoops, the man just kept saying that it was not in the voucher and did not offer us alternative suggestions. In the end, my friend and I found a "loophole" and bought two single scoops. I just wished that the man could have suggested that instead of just saying no. He was curt and didn't say thank you.

I would have dismissed it as a one-off incident, but the second visit sealed my opinion.

I did some research online before visiting again (as I had some more vouchers left) and found out that the man who served us on the first visit was the owner. I was shocked because I've worked in the service industry and it is always, always the management/owner who has the best attitude and gives the best service.

On the second visit, I brought along my teenage cousins and sister. The same man was still there but did not smile or greet us when we went in, though the place was empty.

We bought six single scoops, but since there were four of us the man gave us four spoons. I was paying for the balance amount when my cousin came up to the counter and asked if he could have more spoons. Instead of obliging and giving it to us with no questions asked (As what many other eating and dessert places would do), the man asked in what I felt was a condescending tone "But there's only four of your right. Why do you need a few more?"

To me that was the last straw because it was just another few plastic spoons. The service was already almost non-existent and his response was unexpected. I've asked for friends' opinions and they said they will just let it slide off their backs but for me, I guess it's because it was an accumulation of all the unsatisfactory incidents that I felt angry. In the end he gave my cousin two more spoons after giving me a look.

On the way out, we saw an advertisement for a scooper for the place. The requirements include being "not male, loves ice-cream, loves to talk and loves to smile". I found the irony of the last two amusing.

In the end, I gave my remaining voucher to a friend as I didn't want to go back.
