Abstract

The importance of research on life satisfaction of polices is increasing day by day. One significant measure of life satisfaction of polices is the Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS; Diener, Emmons, Larsen, and Griffin, 1985). The purpose of the present study was to translate the measure into Bangla and validate in Bangladeshi Culture. 210 police officer’s participated in this survey. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) of the data from 160 participants (who provided complete responses) identified a single factor structures for SWLS with 5 items. This factor explained 50.64% of the total variance. This study is consistent with the previous study. The SWLS showed good internal consistency (.74), strong translation and convergent validity. Thus, the Bangla version SWLS appears to be a valid and reliable measure and therefore may be used for further research on polices in the country.

Abstract

Penang is well known for her various ethnic foods and one of the popular ones being the mamak dishes served in many mamak restaurants located everwhere in Penang. However, due to the increase in operational costs, namely food, overhead and labor, mamak restaurant operators are facing increasing challenges in maintaining what they are known for: the ability to provide decent food at affordable prices and provision of efficient service to customers. The objectives of this study were: to study the perceived value, customers satisfaction and behavioral intentions towards mamak restaurants; to compare socio-demographic variables of mamak restaurants’ customers with their behavioral intentions; and to study the relationship between perceived value aspects with Penang-mamak-restaurant-customers’ satisfactions and behavioral intentions. The instrument used in this study was in the form of self-administered questionnaire. The questionnaire contained four parts namely section A (perceived value), section B (customer satisfaction), section C (behavioral intentions) and section D (socio-demographic). A total of 220 respondents who had just dined in at various mamak restaurants both in Penang Island as well as the Butterworth were randomly selected. The study results suggested that consumers’ perceived value towards performance of food quality out perform the performance of service quality and atmospherics in mamak restaurants. In particular, aspects which require improvement are ‘food portion’, ‘food presentation’, ‘lighting’, ‘environmental cleanliness’, ‘music’ and ‘prompt and quick service’. Significant differences were recorded in the behavioural intention between respondents’ gender, race, educational level and monthly income. Consumers were more satisfied with food and service qualities than atmospherics elements in mamak restaurants. All aspects (food, service and atmospherics) were able to predict customer satisfaction and behavioural intention in mamak restaurant. However the most influencing predictor of customer satisfaction and behavioural intention respectively is customers’ perceived value towards food quality and atmospherics factors.
