$2.00 USD sounds like a small amount to us, but in many of those countries, that value could be relatively greater. That amount buys a newspaper in NYC, but in Bangladesh, it might feed a family of four. In reality we should really be measuring quality of life. We should rather focus on healthcare, education and abandonment of superstitious beliefs that truly impoverish the world. This gumball presentation, while colorful and shock inducing for some, is actually missing the point. Let's not simplify one of the most complex aspects of humanity with this display.

Is this Community just a bunch of ads from developing countries?

Hey you two! It's called Summer Heights High and yes, Ja'mie is AWESOME. There is a new series out now in Australia (not New Zealand) and it's called Ja'mie Private School Girl. I hope you get it in America because it is HILARIOUS! Perhaps Bravo will have it...they air weird things sometimes. :-) Love from Sydney

It's so easy to understand the metric system, but so hard to get an entire country to understand. Why?

Yes, the place is iconic and the setting absolutely idyllic, but my story tells of the uselessness and apathy of their staff and management. My partner and I took friends from overseas to visit and have a drink. We do this with all visitors who we want to show our beautiful city. It was Friday night, early evening. We only stayed for 45 minutes because we had small children to get home. On the way home, I realised that I had left my workbag with laptop and other items underneath a table where we were sitting. Immediately, I pulled over and called the Opera Bar, reaching a woman named Kylie. When I asked Kylie to please go out and check the area where we sat, she claimed that they couldn’t do that because they have "thousands" of tables and it would be nearly impossible to locate any items. (Eyes rolled at the “thousands” of tables comment!). I told her exactly where we were seated, as it was fairly easy to pinpoint and pleaded with her a bit more to go out and check on my bag. She refused and suggested that I rather leave my name and phone number so she could call me when it turned up. The nature of the items in my bag necessitated her and my immediate action and I tried to convey the seriousness, but Kylie refused to do anything measuring up to the urgency of the situation. I angrily called her “lazy” and hung up the phone, speeding back to the Opera Bar to tackle the matter myself. When I returned to the table where we sat, I asked the ladies who sat in our same seats if they had seen the bag. They confirmed that they had seen it and said that some gentlemen who were previously at the other end of the table did look for some identification in the bag (there wasn’t much except my work address). We had previously chatted with the gentlemen who were professional businessmen and not dodgy at all in our opinions. The bag wasn’t there anymore, but the ladies assumed that the 3 gentlemen must have taken it to return to me or to the bar staff. I then went to the front of the bar area where I met John, the bar manager. He immediately knew who I was from my phone call and berated me for hanging up on his assistant manager, Kylie. In fact, he started yelling and created quite a scene for the other patrons. Meanwhile, he instructed a member of the security team, Dragos, to assist me. Of course, the bag was not found then and nobody has seen it since. Now I’m not one to make accusations, but if Kylie had just had the sense of care and urgency to have a look in the first place, she might have found my bag in the place where I left it. John could have coached her better and seen my side of things before publicly reprimanding me. I agree that it was my fault for leaving the bag and my fault for losing my cool with Kylie on the phone, but I think they could have tried so much harder than they did. My only hopes are that the bag turns up at the Opera Bar or the 3 gentlemen did the right thing and are looking for me now. I have little hope for the former. Even if they did I have it, I doubt they’d give it back to me.

Managers sit around and visit with mates instead of looking after the customers. It's like a hang out for bogan hipsters.

One of the worst things about TPG is their lack of response and utterly incompetent technical support centre in the Philippines. I know outsourcing is nothing new, but I still think it's only greed that makes a company hire a 3rd party to pay them 1/10 or less what they would pay a competent Australia-based staff member. You can do better, TPG!

READ THIS... I don't care what kind of ratings they get or how popular they are, the fact remains that staff are unfriendly, slow and just plain rude. Waited 40 minutes for breakfast. Got my avocado toast and it was so crunchy that it was nearly impossible to eat. Sorry to say, but please go to another cafe. This one has had it's 15 minutes in the spotlight and it has clearly ruined them. I actually think they should go out of business.

Great on sales, mediocre to low on service. Promises are not kept. You might be better to find a local, less-busy service provider for your motorcycle or scooter.

Unfortunately, Dana is incorrect. The owner of Paisano's has been the owner for over 20 years. Remodeling has taken place recently (March 2009), but only the front part of the interior. As a nearby neighbor, I can assure you, these are the facts. Still, the food is EXCELLENT and the staff are professional and attentive to every need. One of the best parts of this restaurant is the al fresco dining on the back patio. Of course, this is only available during favorable weather. Make a reservation as this place is very busy almost every evening.
