Baker Talent in Boon Lay Shopping Center Long Queue

Baker Talent (Boon Lay branch)
The new arrival of Baker Talent in Boon Lay Shopping Center created a lot of sensations from nearby residents and working class crowd during the 1st few weeks of its opening sometime in June 2012.

Long queue can be seen forming for at least 3 shop lengths away and most of the patrons have to wait outside the bakery shop for more than 10 minutes in order for their turn to place their orders.  



Why the Queue?

Price
Apparently the explanation for long queue is probably mainly due to the lower prices of buns as compared to other bakery shop there. Most of their buns costs under S$1 while the competitor buns cost at least $1.20.  Take for instance, Butter Boom initially priced at $0.60 is really a good buy for most residents who stay around in Boon Lay are "budget conscious". Low prices does attract a lot more people to make a decision to buy.

During those days you can see many people don't mind standing outside the shop to queue up and calling their friends to find out how many buns to get for them while waiting for their turn.
After making their purchase, you can see many of the satisfied customers happily carrying away plastic bag with at least 6 buns inside to bring back home. Some I believe they bought the buns to share them with their friends and family members. They can buy more with this kind of low prices.



Advertisements

Besides the low prices of their buns, I also thought that the advertisements were very well designed with many enticing photographs of their buns. Just looking at the posters will make you want to have a bite on the buns. 
With the use of words like "Opening Promotion", original price =S$1.20 and promotion price=$0.60, who will just let this good bargain slip by?  When one start queuing while waiting for the buns to be ready , the rest will follow.  This "monkey see , monkey do"   kind of effect also created the long queue pheneomon.





1st Impression of Shop 
The shopfront is newly renovated, well lighted, neat and clean coupled with an open concept style of business where people can see what the bakers and employees are doing. 

Customers feel safe and assured when they can see the baking process and furthermore the buns are properly displayed on the shelf covered with clear glass similar to the one in a jewellery shop. Customers can easily order the buns from the outside by just pointing their  fingers to the choice of buns they want.



What about today? 
Seems that the buying craze has cooled down and much quieter, I can hardly see a soul walking near Baker Talent in Boon Lay.  Looks like people have lost much of their initial great interest in the buns. 


Has it got to do with the quality of the buns? 
I have obtained some feedbacks from people who had tried the buns, they told that some of the buns are " oily ". At first I thought it may be their taste bud problem, how can buns be oily?
When I tried it, I  do have to agree with them..

I bought and tried the Custard bun in July, the texture is different from other normal buns i have eaten in the past.  When I bite on the surface of bun, it does not feel like I am eating bread. 
Tasted kind of soft and feel like I needed to buy at least another one bun to be full.
The bun was also oily so I have to drink more water.

From that day onwards,  I did not come back to order the same type of bun.  
Instead I tried a different flavor, the bun that  has  ham and corns filllings  (the bun has a whiter color ). 
Now it  tasted more like bun to me now and I gave it a thumbs up. 

I believe some of their other flavors of buns are quite tasty and appealing to the taste bud. 
You may want to try  out and see which is the better type, given the lower prices of the buns
and considering you can expect safer food from the clean environment setup.
Best of all, Bake Talent still maintained most of their promotion prices.
and
NO more queues , you can get your bun order within 2 mins;)

  6. Testimony on how i got my LOAN from fundingloanplc@yahoo.com ...

    I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: fundingloanplc@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
