The situation at Kam Ling was a bit stressful, service was bad, the staff was seem to be boycotting work, and most of the food has either sold off or not for sale for the day. Probably it was the eve of CNY and the staff has yet to receive their bonus or either they were already in a holiday mood. Mind you some of the staff is of Indian origin and yet they behave just like those going to celebrate CNY.
On the other corner business was busy, the take away counter was packed with people queuing to “ta pau” food like egg tarts, Dim Sum, Curry Chicken breads, Yee Sang and other “Peang” or pastries.
The “Char Siew Pau” man at the front of the shop was equally busy too there were people queuing for the steamed dumplings; Business was so good that food was finishing fast.
And if you are waiting for food to be served at your table by the waitresses than it’s good luck. I hope Kam Ling scenario of this sort only happened once a year.
