I have bought the FairPrice house brand large eggs from Kampung Admiralty on the 22 May 2022. It was found rotten today when my daughter wants to cook it. The expiry is on 15 June 2022 but it had already gone back.
The following videos may make you uncomfortable, but this is the actual fact, when the egg is cracked.
Now you will see the little insects that are crawling over as it had wen bad. I am not sure where NTUC FairPrice source the eggs, but I was unlucky to pick the bad quality eggs. Their quality assurance was not able to pick up this and end up in a consumer house.
I was able to get a refund from FairPrice as I am a FairPrice App customer. Thus, I have the digital copy of the receipts. I will trust local egg farm such as Seng Choon Farm who have delivered quality eggs over the years.
MOS Burger had introduced the order kiosk to their outlet at Kampung Admiralty. It is not friendly as the McDonald or KFC order kiosk. You need to double click for the main menu and single click once you enter it.
As it is not so user friendly during the ordering process, this will keep the senior citizen and non-tech savvy customers off this kiosk. They will need to assign staff to help customers during the interim period.
It is also the duty of the customers to get the drinks from the counter as it is not an auto process except for the collection of the food.
Many staffs are still unsure of the island freezer safety load line. Frozen food are stack above the safety load line which might comprise food safety. Some of the food products had been stack above the safety load line and this should infringe the supermarket SOP.
Staffs shall ensure that the frozen food place in the island freezer is place below the safety load line mark out by the manufacturer. This is to ensure that there is no overloading of the products and ensure that there is even cooling inside the freezer.
NTUC Food Fare@Admiralty has seen a few new stalls again. Out of interests I ask my favourite stalls why the previous owners want to give up their store. Is it beacause of bad business or venturing into new grounds? I found out that NTUC Food Fare has risen the stall rentals once again and some stall holders has chosen to give up their business due to the high rental.
There are a few stores who now charges 20 cents for package food. This includes the Chicken Rice Store, Wan Tun Noodle Store and the Fish Soup Store. These costs are pass to the consumers and I think that 20 cents for packaging is just too expensive. If you happen to be in Toa Payoh Industrial area, a piece of these packaging is less than 10 cents. Furthermore if you buy in bulk, the cost may be even lower.
NTUC Food Fare is actually giving discount to NTUC Members, this looks encouraging. Some stores will offer a 20 cents discount on a promotion dish for NTUC Members only. But on the other end, NTUC Food Fare is also driving the food costs up by rising the stall rentals.
