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....

  2. Wow! Amazing views of the city.

    A very sumptious buffet.

  3. I love buffets so a wedding buffet gets the highest marks from me. Nice photos from the restaurant's view.

    1. Buffet style.. so much food but so little space.. in the stomach! hahaa

  4. You are beautiful, Claire! And the views are astounding!! Quite a buffet feast! Were pictures allowed during the ceremony?

    1. Thank you, yes, pictures are allowed during the ceremony

  5. Very nice now, Komtar. Would love to check this place out. Last time, like a haunted house, so dark and dreary.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
