Took my car to Integrity for a scheduled 60k maintenance using a coupon for $229 for "complete service". Received a call saying that I need to pay additional for air filter as it was excluded. This seems quite ridiculous as air filters are cheap and should be replaced in any of the 30/60/90k services. I then read the fine print of the coupon which has a small line saying this is excluded. So my advice is that you should not be lured by the statement "complete service" in the coupon. They are charging around $40 for the filter which I can find readily outside for 1/4 the cost. I ended up replacing it myself later.
99 Ranch has two stores in this area, one in Kent and the other in Edmonds. Their price is similar to what you find in Uwajimaya. Produce department is huge with all kinds of vegetables and fruits. Their seafood department is also well represented, and price is surprisingly low for lobster and crab. The deli and bakery sections are ok, but they also sell very delicious Chinese BBQ items. I also love to browse their frozen food aisle as well as the snacks (2-3 aisles) section.
This store is located in the Great Wall shopping center in Kent, in the same complex with 99 Ranch grocery store. It caters to the import tuner population (actually I think they are not selling a lot of products that upgrade performance, but just for the look of it). Although I am not interested in those products, I do find some nice and hard-to-find items in this store. Specifically, it has a lot of sunblocking shades in different sizes that are hard to find in your local Target/Walmart/etc.
PCC is a delight to shoppers looking for organic goodies. The deli selections as well as the fresh made juices are very delicious. I also notice that their price has fallen a bit , maybe due to the competition of Whold Foods. Product display is clear and strolling in the store is very pleasant . The staff is also very helpful.
I was planning to trade my Maxima for a 350Z and went to Nissan of Fife for a test drive. The salesman that I talked to was not friendly at all. First he said there was just one Z out there for test drive purpose. Then he asked me to wait for him to find the keys of the car. After waiting for quite a while he said the car was sold so he could not find keys in the office. I found this to be totally BS as it is impossible for a salesman to not know if a car was sold or not. Obviously either this guy was not keeping himself updated on his inventory, or he was just refusing me to test drive the car and telling me stupid lies. I then went to another Nissan dealer and was treated very well in the test drive process.
CONS: very unprofessional
This place is really wondeful in buzzy Pioneer Square. There are so many things to just look at and play with. Even if you don't buy a thing the staff are friendly.
They have a good selection of puzzles, books, tarot cards, chess sets, playing cards, card games, board games, model trains, etc in the basement. The upper story is more mischievous with those little cheap party toys and talking plush toys.
People of all ages can definitely find their heart's delight here.
Dr Sherpard is a very patient chiropractor who works with me to alleviate my backpain. In additional to helping me adjust my joints and giving suggestions on the type of exercise I should do to increase my muscle strength, Dr Sherpard also inquires about my lifestyle so that she can give more in-depth tips on how my lifestyle (or postures) is adversely affecting my health, and how these can be prevented. Her explanation is also very thorough.
I called several travel agents to get price quote of a plane ticket. Asia Travel was not the cheapest (it was the 2nd cheapest) but the staff was very friendly. I talked to Robert and he helped me find a great price for my itinerary by suggesting different alternatives in dates and sections. He is very patient and is willing to go the extra mile and give the customer different options. I have no problem recommending him.
If you want to try blowfish this is the only place to be in Washington. Beware that it is not cheap though, the sushi is $10/piece and the full meal is over $100. The owner/chef is very friendly and their daily special menu is extensive (and delicous too). The sushi combo plate is of good value given its price ($19) and high quality.
This restaurant is right next to the Uwajimaya grocery store. It is a very busy place at lunch. At dinner time they usually have tasteful appetizer specials, whose portion is big enough that you can order several and make them into a meal. The beef stew, ankimo (monk fish liver) and other bbq items are very delicious.
