I wanted to get a cake for Carol for her farewell but when I logged into Secret Recipe I found out that my credit card order wouldn’t go through. T_T

I haven’t paid my credit card bill this month coz of moving and all that (moving requires $) so my credit card was rejected. I tried making random calls to various Secret Recipe outlets in KL but it seems that only one (after much pleading) would do delivery.


He is the store manager of the franchise at Wisma MCA and agreed to text me his bank account so I can transfer the money to him. I was a bit dubious about this arrangement at first, but I had the blogathon to do last Friday (the day it’s supposed to be delivered) so I didn’t have a choice.


Anyway, I banked in the money and emailed him and on Friday (the 13th) he called me RIGHT BEFORE the blogathon and said he couldn’t access his email. >.<


I haven’t even changed, much less gotten into the window display to get at the computers. I panicked for about 1 second before telling him I’ll text him the email contents before lunch (coz I can’t remember everything).



Thus, on the very first day of the blogathon, while everyone was blogging, I was busy sorting out this damn cake order so Carol would get it on her very last day.

It’s a good thing that the Xpax XXL double bonus is happening coz it’s so much easier to write long SMS (took 6 x 160 characters IIRC) on my BB.

cake carol

All’s well that ends well though. Goodbye Carol! You will be missed. T_T

  5. sorry huai bin but the icing on that cake looked chin chai even the writing too, like as if it was rushed…. and “carol” didn’t looke like “carol”…
    don’t u think so?

  6. HB, that very nice of you doing it. It the thought that count. What it a chocolate rich cake? It look so good. I love desserts.

  7. Sorry to say this but it sure looks like ‘camel’ to me! LOL

  8. Seriously its the tots that god. Secret Recipe should start to do a better job with the cake’s aesthetics!

  9. The only thing I have to say is…
    Bad Cursive writing!
    Best looked like Berf….
    I was trying to make it what it says before I started reading the whole story. LOL.
    tsk tsk.

  10. OMG, the writings is so errr… unacceptably ugly? It was almost not visible for the eyes to read! Go complaint to the manager!!!

  11. shimmers999: Yalor, no quality control. :(
    Michael (Mike): Yup, it’s always the thought that counts. :)
    Damn Dirty Angel: Heh! No worries, I couldn’t order through the website coz my credit card has been barred. :(
    thenomadGourmand: True, true, I think it was coz I ordered from an outlet instead of the website. :(
    Mizz Sharon: Yeah, the icing guy should be fired! :S
    chefmel: Haha! No la, he was also kind enough to let me bank into his bank account with transfer and allow me to order like that. He was good, seriously. :)

  12. You should complaint (albeit the manager being nice and all) because Secret Recipe is a franchise and they have quality control. :P

  13. chefmel: Hmm…ya, maybe I should right! :)

  14. Ngaiti.. the worst words written on the cake :x
    I thought I am the only one who read that word as Camel *LOL*
    But it’s very sweet of you to give that surprise cake to her :)
