Incredibly Rude RECEPTIONIST at the new 3 stars hotel in Kuwait


 I’ve been in many hotels in Kuwait as it is sort of family tradition to stay for a night or two for a family bonding and sort of refreshing our mine and bodies after a tiring weeks at work, however, our recent experienced in the new 3 stars hotel in Salmiya had leave me and my family a great disappointment simply because the receptionist were incredibly rude, perhaps they were not ready to accommodate fellow Filipinos in the hotel, I was speechless during the whole check-in process and I feel this article deserved a space in blog!!!!

It was my daughter’s request to stay in a hotel for days as her birthday gift, since, we are a loyal customer of sky cinema so we decided to booked a standard room thru bookings.com which is located on the same building where the cinema is,  so on the day of our check-in, it was very clear on my booking confirmation on special request that we are going to checked in at 2:00pm, We arrived in the place at exactly 2:00pm as we came near to the reception, the Filipina receptionist stared at us as if we are lost!!! No hi’s or hello, I started the conversation by stating my name and told her that we have a confirmed booking on the given day, she looked at the pile of papers on her desk and found the record, no smile and instructed us to come back at 3:00 pm because the hotel is fully booked and the room which I confirmed is not yet ready……!!! I was like, really?????  

Again, I have to say, INSTRUCTED not even request….!!!! So I turned my back and proceeded to go out…

At exactly 3:00pm, my family came back and we headed to the reception, new Filipina receptionist was there along with the previous one, well, guess what, instead of warm greetings, holla!!! The new lady burst the question in TAGALOG (Filipino dialect) Sina ba sya???????  (WHO IS SHE!!!!!!?????) In a very rude tone, at the back of my mind, really???? that’s how you greeted your guest???!!! So the other lady took my documents and presented to her my records, she looked at just and asked, are you all GONNA stay in the room?????!! Because the room is very small, then she proceeded going out of the reception to have a clear view of us head to foot and continually sayin:  “WE ONLY ACCEPT TWO ADULTS AND TWO CHILDREN” and our hotel is very full right now!!!!......., My husband who is standing standing near to me was irritate to the way this lady is talking to us, so he asked, is the hotel do not have the policy of providing an extra bed for extra 1 person?????? Then this rude receptionist said: ACTUALLY, all our guest had requested for extra bed, so my husband told her, then why can you give us an extra bed???!! And I also interrupted the conversation by saying, I don’t mind paying the extra charges and so the rude receptionist, continue to argue by saying, we are charging 5KD extra bed , you have to pay additional 15% service charge and you have to pay additional amount in cash as DEPOSIT which refundable during your check out!!!!!... Me in my most patient tone….DONE!! I handed my ATM card to them and said: CHARGE IT ALL HERE!!! Only then, the rude receptionist keep her mouth shut…..!!! so the second lady, realizes that we have no plans of cancelling our booking and we are able to afford all the charges presented to us, she suddenly lower her voice and handed the key card explaining the facilities of the hotel and lastly, saying “PASYENSYA NA” ( sorry anyway…..)

Discrimination happens anywhere and to anyone, but somehow, the hardest part is to accept that our fellow kababayans may have that guts to discriminate it’s fellowmen in foreign land, we Filipinos are best known to be hospitable and respectful, but regardless of that, people working in the field of customer service or front liners should keep  in mind the kind of work they are entitled to do for a living, Me and my family did not ask for a special treatment, we just need them to do their job!!! The job that they are PAID to do …….

And let me just end this article by saying,

Racist thought and action says far more about the person they come from than the person they are directed at.



“Even god doesn't propose to judge a man till his last days, why should you and I?”

Sick of posing for photos these animals decided to make a scene and create a snap these subjects will never forget.
The terrifyingly funny - and likely harmless - attacks range from camels taking a liking to female hair to a goat kid flying headbutt.

Wisemummy81- turns ONE!



I cannot believe that in two weeks,  it’s my 1st year anniversary, so many times I’ve been tested and disappointed by time, work and sadness  but I never give up…

My very first entry was entitled “Simply Asian” such article tackles about being Asian and what are the simple things I do to manage my hair, skin and anything about hygiene, I looked back and still have my smile reading that very first entry on my blog, so many changes and I’m still the very same person I am today…Literally confused on what actually is my purpose of having this blog and what will be my contribution in the society, this and more to be discovered as I continue to write and share my likes, fun, joy, fear, sadness all sorts of emotions in this medium

I’m so glad I come this far and not wanting more but to just go on and share what I have in mind and heart, this 1st year anniversary is a thanksgiving for everyone who drops by, who has the time to check and accident readers…I thank you all for respecting my space, my errors, my shallow perspectives and my blog….

Once again, life gets better everyday!!
