- July 14, 2008 - Unpleasant Experience at Swensens2 - I knew most of us were clearly upset by the Swensens staff at Plaza Singapura. Despite us mimicking on how we would like to complain to the management or write in to forums, I knew nobody would do so. Thus, I decided to write a complaint letter to Swensens to voice our unhappiness. I finally did so on Saturday (12 July 2008).
