♫ Tony Orlando - Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Old Oak Tree
Lately, many group buy websites have been cropping up in Malaysia, and they seem to be a big hit with online shoppers and bargain hunters everywhere. I have bought some of these 'deals' from a couple of these sites, and I have to say that so far they have not disappointed me.
Last Sunday, my brother and I went to The Gardens to have lunch at Zouk Cafe Bar. He'd bought a coupon from MilkADeal and it was the last day to redeem it, so we set out around 11am to try and beat the car park jam. (Procrastination, tsktsk.)
Since his meal was already paid for, I browsed the menu and decided on chicken lasagna. A few minutes later, the waiter came back and told me it wasn't available that day because their oven was rosak (spoilt). -__-" So I changed my order to a Caesar salad.

Zouk Cafe Bar is located on the ground floor of The Gardens, right next to the Midvalley-The Gardens link entrance. They have two dining sections: the open-air area outside next to the fountain, and the indoor dining area.

After lunch, we went up to Austin Chase to redeem my Groupon. To me, Groupon is one of the best and most reliable group buy websites, having bought several different ones from them.

The Groupon had stated that I could choose any one from these three choices, but when I got there they told me that the Espresso Chip Frappe was not available that day. Not being a huge fan of strawberry or guava, I choose the other frappe.
