Our family went for a buffet restaurant a couple of weeks back as a treat to our friends who were leaving the city. We like this restaurant since they have a wide variety of food and there's no time limit for the diners. But then, when we came to pay, they measured the heights of our kids with something like a height gage and we realized that our kids have indeed grown taller and they can no longer eat for 'free'. LOL! We now have to pay adult price for our daughter and half price for our son. Oh, gone are the days when we could just tag our children along to any buffet restaurants and not have to think of extra costs.. now, we have to think twice in dining at these restaurants since have to pay time 3 and 1/2.. and to think, my daughter eats like a bird! LOL!
