A Wedding Buffet At 59 Sixty At Komtar Towers, Penang

THE MAIN REASON FOR CHECKING OUT FROM ROYAL HOTEL TO JEN HOTEL is to attend a special wedding dinner at the 59 Sixty Dining and Bar in Komtar.   We checked into Jen Hotel (formerly known as Shangrila and Traders) because this hotel is the most convenient for us, just a few minutes walk out from the hotel to Komtar in our dinner clothing and high heels without having to cross any roads in broad daylight.  LOL....

We checked in one day earlier to get us familiarized with the surrounding and on how-to-go-about so that we would not be late for the wedding.  Somehow, we managed to find the place through some walkways here and there.... and we make sure that there are special landmarks for us to remember so that we would not get lost the next day.  LOL....

The wedding buffet started at 11am and we were right on time.... since we were the first early birds, we took endless pictures of this beautiful dining hall....
View from the 59 Sixty in Komtar.... 
Part of Penang at one angle... 
From another angle.. through the window panes... 
The Penang bridge could be seen.... 
Komtar Tower is the highest building in Penang....
The place where the wedding was held.... very nice ambiance.... and free style... 
Early birds can have more time lingering here and there... 
And I sent my "photographer" out to take whatever is seen...
Just a small section from where we were seated..
Most of the main dishes were covered up.... 
Initial takings.... eat slow and steadily..
So much to savour and enjoy.... 
And we the early birds... before the buffet started... 
And when the buffet ended.....
It was almost 2pm and we made our way back to Jen Hotel...
Checked out and drove back to our home sweet home in IPOH....

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
