    hey!!!!! i had the exact experience too!! the booth outsidecarrefour suntec!!!

    MY bf only wanted to get 200g!!!! And when my bf gave the uncle 10$ note, we were expecting change from him!!! YET, he threw in all the fruit jellies and kept the 10$ in his cashier drawer w/o even looking at us or consulting us!!!! that's so rude of him!!! pls boycott that stall cotters!!! really a sickening experience.......

    Despite having explain to him we only want 200g, he threw more jellies....we told him we dont eat those jellies, so wanna request to change to muah chees...he then ask us what flavours we want..so we say a mix.......and GUESS WHAT!!!!! he grab a handful of YAM flavoured ones and threw all those in!!! We end up with half a packet of YAM muah chees!!!!!!!!!!

    yup, i bought Muah Chee last year. It was a temp store set up for CNY just outside Northpoint..

    They weigh very fast and also they place the front of the weights inwards, meaning you wont be able to see how much it actually weighs..

    so becareful when buying from these people. Make sure u see the weight before and after they weigh.
    Oh I experience this at outside Carrefour's Muah Chee booth too!! They say I give you free and throw inside more muah chees but that was before weighing!!

    And the man before me was quoted $6 for his muah chee but only about 500gms then he threw in more (total weight 600gms) and I give you $8 la. The man refuse but he say come on only $2 more then the man refuse and say take it out he then gave him $10 but the seller returned only $2 change and said "$8 la, tolong la, $2 only".

    When my turn same thing happened!

    I was intending to take 1kg but not enough yet so he said I help you. He threw mixed ones and jellies in and said for you free! I snatched back and said I don't want these flavours and promptly threw them out.

    He said free la, you don't want? I said I don't want these and items not weighed yet what!
    He then wanted to snatch my bag I hold on to it very tightly and proceed to dump it on the weighing scale when the man not watching. I took about 1.2kg so he said take more I don't want and he proceed to dump some out ultra quickly took the bag off the scale and said $10.

    I went home and weight less then 1kg!!

    So unscrupulous!!

    normally the stallholders at chinatown will slash prices on CNY eve so that they can clear their stocks..just like how they slash their prices for the cookies as well..

    tried my 1st muah chee given by my friend yesterday..had the red bean was quite good..

    Actually I don't understand why you girls kana cheated so much.
    I first read abouting such "cheating" cases in cozy then last Mon I also went to Chinatown stalls to buy.
    I went to the 100g $1.80 stall then one of the ah beng seller open up one muah chee and one jelly for me to sample.
    Then after picking a few another ah beng weigh for me and said $10.
    I was quite surprised since only a few pcs but I must admit I picked quite a lot of jellies instead.
    Then after paying, he picked a few more jellies and said free for me.
    I told bf wa like cheating as they did not show us the actual weight.
    Then I asked the ah beng again do they have durian flavour.
    He actually picked 3 and gave to me FOC.
    My bf tried to pay him back but he said no need.

    I went home and took out kitchen scale to weigh.
    It weighs 800g in total!
    So by rights if they charge me 800g then would have cost me $14.40.
    So in fact the first time they charge me $10 was indeed a fair calculation.

    the store is the one where a woman wearing mid-rif top stands slightly higher platform and speaks into a mike and says in Chinese "Geninue Taiwan Muah Chee".

    My story is that I chose some pieces of muah chee to try. It is $1.80 for 100g. The ah beng guy weighed for me and said 200gms. He tried to convince to me to add 100g to the 200g and said will charge me $5 only!! I refused cos I wanted to try a few pieces only. Then, he started to throw in a few pieces and said free gift. I was quite pleased and dug out my $3.60 for my stuff. Then, he passed the stuff to me and said $4. HUh? I said thought is free gift, how come is $4. I know is only 40 cents more, but is a matter of principle! so I made him take out the "free" ones and insisted on paying for what I chose only. I was really angry. these people are so unscrupulous (selling?).

    haha, it's a wonder i didnt get bashed up.
    i feel those people at chinatown are unscruplous. bought from them before and SO said they cheated cos i paid only a few pieces for $5++ and he was so shocked. outside carrefour there's also a muah chee store selling at $1.80 for 100g too and i bought around the same amount as when i was in chinatown. the price comes up to about the same, less 10 cents or 20 cents, but this time, amount is much more than what i got in chinatown stall.

    really? the $0.80 ones and $1.80 ones are different..
    No wonder...i did not think the ones i got taste that great. i thought i did not like it..
    And i had thought chinatown sold it cheap when i saw Carrefour selling for $1.80
