Our Unexpected Free Meal From Marco Polo, Johor

WHAT TURNED OUT THIS EVENING'S DINNER was the least expected....  We were looking forward to having a western meal dining at the Marco Polo restaurant without any hitches.  The place was crowded as usual and we were ushered to the first floor for our meals.  For us three persons, three main meals were ordered to be eligible for the membership discount of 50%.  For my two princes, they ordered Pasta with walnuts, Angus Beef steak and for myself, I had a special Pizza wrapped.  My son recommended this to me, he said it is kind of special nowhere else have ever made. For side orders, we had french fries with truffle oil, something new to me too.....

Anyway, our orders came except for the Angus Steak, while waiting, we just shared and ate our food served.  But the steak was nowhere in sight even though we had made several waves to the staff and commented.  The friendly staff kept apologizing for the delay, we saw him made several calls in foreign language and eventually he came over and informed us the there was a shortage of steak and thus our order was delayed or cancelled... My son complained why we were not informed earlier... and the poor guy kept apologizing on behalf.  He asked us whether we wanted to order some other food to replace, but by then, our food were almost finished and we were actually quite full so we rejected.  We just asked for the bill instead.... Then to our surprise, he said, "No need to pay this meal."  What? Really?  Yes, he smilingly replied.... Alright, that was not bad... huh... 
Taken at the first floor of Marco Polo....
Pasta in some walnut sauce and spinach.... 
They tasted really nice though I couldn't eat much... 
Very filling for me... around RM29
And this is under the Pizza category...
Looks like a Giant Puff to me....
How am I going to finish this?
These two were our orders... 
The Angus steak did not come... 
so we ended up sharing our two main meals which was really a wise choice....
Inside the giant puff...something like this... creamy cheese with chicken.... 
Around RM27 or so... 
Our side order.... Straight cut French Fries with Truffle oil whatever that is.... RM17 or so .. 
Well, instead of the Steak, he ended up eating this instead!
LOL... 
Well, Jokes aside... Thumbs up to Marco Polo for living up to its name
and Thanks for the evening meal....

  6. These dishes look very good! They did a very good thing to give you the meal free! I am sure you like the free meal better than having the steak. This will give them a good reputation. I KNOW what your puff is!!! Here, the pizza and Italian places sell them, they are very popular! It is called a Calzone. Folded dough stuffed with cheeses and meats, you can choose your filling. Our son loves them and orders them a lot when we go out to eat.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
