BIG SUPERMARKET CHAINS SHOULD GIVE FRUITS TO CHILDREN FOR FREE

A great idea just hit me. Why don't our supermarkets, like NTUC, Cold Storage and Giant, organize free fruits for children like they do overseas? One of my observations in NZ is that they actually do have such a programme for the children there. Besides NZ, I believe many European countries too, carry out similar schemes.

Because of Singapore's hectic lifestyle, many of us neglect consuming fruits in our regular diets. Hopefully, by having this kind of programmes, it could raise awareness for young parents to inculcate a balanced diet for their children. This kind of good eating habits should definitely start from young. It also helps young families ease a bit of their economic constraints that they might be struggling financially to afford a nutritious diet for our precious future generations.

Surely, the big corporations can alleviate a bit of their costs to offer free fruits to children, so that they can enjoy the fruits, as well as develop a healthy habit of eating fruits?

BOUGHT PRE PACKED STEAK ON SPECIAL OFFER, BUT OTHER SIDE IS NOT FRESH

Yesterday, I went to NEX Cold Storage wanting to buy steak from the counter, but the counter was close. For the first time, I bought pre-packed steak.

The side facing outside looks quite nice.

As you can see from the photos, the other side facing the styrofoam was grey.

Is this safe to eat?

ABANDONED TROLLEYS COST SUPERMARKETS $12000 TO REPAIR & REPLACE

Do you know that NTUC FairPrice loses about 1,000 trolleys every year in more than 90 of the stores that they operate in? Fairprice spends around $150,000 every year on repairing and recovering trolleys left in random places.

Another supermarket chain, Sheng Siong, loses 90 metal and 180 plastic trolleys each month. This means that $120,000 is loss on just trolleys.

Even the $1 dollar coin deposit for the trolley does not deter the upward trend of abandoned trolleys.

COLD STORAGE SOLD ME EXPIRED CUPCAKES BUT FAILED TO ADMIT FAULT PROPERLY

On 3rd February, a reader bought cupcakes from Cold Storage at TripleOne Somerset, not realizing that the cakes had expired. When she consumed the cupcakes later that same night, she ended up with diarrhea and vomiting and had to see a doctor the next day. According to Bella, the cupcakes had expired on 31st January but were still on display and for sale. She had 2 of the cakes for dinner and went to bed. She later woke up in the middle of the night with a strange sensation in her gut and ended up relieving herself in the bathroom.

ABUSIVE CUSTOMER AT COLD STORAGE DEMANDS SWEET WRAPPER TO BE THROWN AWAY

This male aggressor barged in at the Delicatessen counter and demanded a Pioneer Generation staff "Huey Li" to throw away a sweet wrapper for him, whilst she was attending to me. As she was handling ham, she redirected another colleague Vicnicswari who is nearer to the kitchen bin to attend to him. It pissed him off that he again interrupted the staff attending to me yelling "WHAT KIND OF CUSTOMER SERVICE IS THIS?! I ONLY ASKED YOU TO THROW AWAY A SWEET WRAPPER!".
