Will Facebook ever fix this????

was notified of a case from an unhappy customer, after listening to the problems I am starting to doubt Facebook's business ideal.

Here's the story:
David (not his real name), was very disappointed in an online groomer and had left negative reviews on their page, moments later he received a threat message that demands him to remove his review or he will be charged for "defamation". 

He continued to maintain his position as an unhappy customer, so the groomer had no choice but to remove their review function, which hides away all reviews. 

All sounds normal right, now the worst part - the groomer started to receive a lot of complains from different people! So what the owner did? Just change the name of the business on Facebook page!! And the crappiest part, due to Facebook's weird policy, changing of business name can still retain previous likes and reset review score at the same time. So in another words, a page with 5000 likes can simply pass over to another business name at the convenience of a click and preference of a new business name.

I actually went to check on the page and holy crap, it was not a joke. This is not the first time I've heard such a thing but to experience it in person was unreal! Imagine any unethical business can create ads attracting likes and then once they screw their reputation up, just a name change can do the trick. True enough the face of the owner will not change (unless they go for plastic surgery), but he/she can just avoid taking in the same customer and act as if nothing happened with the rest.

First time to Pasir Ris Farmway (Pet Farm)

04 Feb, my husband's colleague decided to get another puppy so he drove us to Pasir Ris Farmway to look for puppy since we wanted one as well. He already has a 1 year Male Yorkshire Terrier so he was looking for another breed to accompany his Yorkshire. The farm was really hard to get to if you do not drive a car, unless you don't mind calling a cab. It's in the deepest part of the road and there ain't any buses around. When we first went to the first shop at farmway 02, we met a very stuck-up pet owner. Very "hao lian(proud)" with his puppies and even said all his prices are very CNY, all ended with $xx88 which means good luck for the Chinese people. We saw a pretty red toy poodle but it was sold, so the shop owner told us to buy his other puppies instead since all his puppies are so-called "high quality". I think that shop was kinda overpriced for every puppy that he quoted.

One of the pups that he was selling, poodle was just besides it, seeking f…

Vet Review - Light of Life Vet

This was a very tedious search for us, finding a good vet for Amber. I researched online for many weeks before coming to a conclusion. I called most of the "recommended vets" and asked questions regarding consultation, spay and deworming. I also wanted to see whether the staffs knew what i inquired about. I would ask them stuffs like what does the spay consist, when can i take Amber home, how old should Amber be spayed and why. Some of the staffs do not even understand what i was talking about and told me to book an appointment to ask the vet what i needed to ask, so i blacklisted those clinics. I also cancelled out vets that are overly expensive and too far for transport, i do not want to make the trip back after surgery hard for Amber. Although i usually trust the internet for reviews of good vets in Singapore, i do see some ridiculous recommendations on vets based on things like "good to chat", "funny" and i even saw a thread to recommend the vet becau…
