Thank you for sharing your concerns with us. We are glad that you enjoyed the breads.

We regret to hear about the challenges you faced during your recent stay. We will share your feedbacks regarding the condition of the breakfast buffet with our F&B team for their review and appropriate action.

We appreciate your feedbacks and rest assured that we are continuously improving our services to ensure that our guests needs’ are well attended to. We hope that you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back at Marina Bay Sands.


No awards for me guessing that the Senior Hotel Manager (if such a post exists) being non-Singaporean ?

I worked with people from a certain nation, and when you raise comments that customers are complaining, the answer will be 'so we have to face the challenge' .. any amount of telling them that the customers is pissed goes out of the window

I like the part of 'you liked our bread' :D :D Holy crap..

Hmmmm well, from my side it's simply a parody. But I borrowed very heavily from the 'feedbacks' on Tripadvisor.

Funnily enough when you read through the reviews on a hotel, you might read say 10 or so before you think you have the measure of a place. Occasionally you'll see a 'Management Response' to a review but it's normally only if the reviewer is really spitting blood. With MBS they seem to respond to every single review, and always the same format,
1) Clutching at anything positive, then
2) the same 'ol same 'ol 'challenges lessons and feedbacks' shtick.
3) Finishing with 'Look forward to seeing you again soon', as if none of your awful review happened or still stands. :?

One might (or might not) prognosticate that the question was not entirely a direct

Either way, semantically speaking, knowingly or otherwise, you have answered their question.

If you can't post anything productive, why post at all? I'm starting to wonder how you became a moderator at all with the sarcasm and everything!

Well, looks like no one mentioned to dewy-eyed local school advocates that somehow think anyone who pays more for an education is being ripped off or the Defenders of All Things Singaporean who answer every negative post with directions to Changi. A mighty can of worms you've opened up here. All good clean fun, right? :wink:

Speaking of which, can anyone help me find an apartment? It needs to be close to IAS/SAS/SAF/SSS/USS/RMS/RHS/USAFFE/XXX, Orchard and Raffles Place. My wife just received a job offer in Singapore for Senior Management in a multinational bank while I plan to advise graduate students in a local university or research institution (advanced human-computer heuristic interactions and social futurism) Do you think 10,000 SGD is enough? Do we also qualify for PR? We both have PhD in game theory and neurolinguistics, two children (a boy and a girl), a dog (great dane) and 1.6 million euros in our Cayman Island accounts.

So glad I found this forum, it is very helpful and informative. I'll be arriving next week and have been doing a lot of research. I've used the search function and read all 417,629 posts, but I can't find the answers to my questions which are:

1. Where is Singapore? My friend told me it's in China but I'm not so sure.
2. Where should I live? I've heard Kusu Island is a good area, but what is the commute time to Pulau Ubin?
3. How much do I need to budget?

Thanks in advanse for your advise.

Looking to meet up with like-minded business professionals with a strong financial background to discuss possible strategic investments in fast-growing buzzword-infested opportunities. Initially I'm considering short positions in Iranian wildebeest futures and going long on CCDD- rated sub-prime CDO-backed SIV bonds. Whoever wins the US election, everything will be great, so can't lose on that strategy.

Oso, can anyone recommend a bank that can lend me some money?

My friend has a minor conviction for overthrowing a democratically elected government. Do you think this will adversely impact his PR application?

If you could send me a PM, I will gladly assist you in finding a place and going behind the backs of the real-estate company that hosts this forum.
