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.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
