Our Buffet Dinner At Eastern & Oriental Hotel, Penang

My Penang trip posts are far from over yet... Looking back, my buffet dinner at E & O have yet to be posted up. Unfortunately the pictures did not turn out very well and thus not doing much credit to the food. Nevertheless, from the publicity, the buffet at this prestigious hotel is one of the best in Penang island and I readily agree it is indeed so.

If I were to go for this buffet again, I would make sure to take a light meal only in the morning and then leave the rest of the space for the dinner buffet... hahahaa....  speaking from a "kiasu auntie"....
Initially it was quite deserted...
Cos we went in quite early.. before 7.30pm...
Sections near to our table...
 Auntie "eyeing" this section at the very start....
Kiasu auntie taking her first round of food......
My first round....
By now...forgotten how many rounds already...
Still attacking the first section....
Sometimes we took more to share....
Like the baked oyster and the grilled octopus...
Fruits corner...
In the midst of it, we came out to take a breather...
(Digesting food time)
Then we re-entered again.... 
Sarkies Corner...
 
Went round one more time to see what else worth eating...
And we were told that these crayfish just came in....
The cook said.. "Try this.. you will come back for more...."
Yes, we did.... they were indeed very fresh.....

Then after some ice cream pancakes and ice kacang...
we were more or less.... "FULL" liow....
Our FULL stomach smiles....
ie. before the Bill came....
hahahaaa...

  6. Lovely food Reana! :)

    I like the second last picture - that's a slipper lobster right? It's like a Moreton Bay Bug but caught over here or in surrounding waters, it's actually pretty good. I like them as much as regular lobsters.

  12. I saw all the delicious food and I surrender because I know if I stuffed myself because of kiasu, then at night sure will suffer because of over eating so not going for buffets now. Your stomach very keng! Can fit in so much food that night when usually you are a small eater. :D

  13. OMG.....if cannot afford to stay there maybe can buy their buffet meal. ahhahah

  14. Wakakakaka!!! You are so humble to call yourself a Kiasu Auntie! I would never dare to call myself Kiasu Uncle.
    I studied at St Xavier's for 11 years and saw E&O Hotel everyday at the front and the famous Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion on my left, through the classroom windows. I love how they have refurbished the hotel to its majestic world class now as it was sadly neglected for many decades. That hotel even invited my parents who are well known ballroom dancers to hang out at their dance hall everyday with unlimited free drinks!! Now my mum is bedridden. Sobs!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
