Ala Carte Buffet at Nonya Restaurant-Part 1

Last week, I had a great sumptous Ala Carte Buffet with my girlfriends at Straits Chinese Restaurant. It is a Ala Carte Nonya Buffet and the food is so much that we almost could not finish the food...lol. I think I still prefer the normal buffet where we could just walk to the main table and take whatever food we want instead of ala carte buffet.

You can see more photos of the restaurant in their official website.
Keropok serve before the buffet.

Sambal Belachan - yummy

For starters, we had mini fried spring roll.

And some kueh pie tee (3 cups here for the 3 of us)

Look at the amount of food we had and these are not the complete set, there are more coming...lol. Imagine putting all these food into our stomachs of three women...hahaha...I guess it is wiser to come in a bigger group for ala carte buffet.

We just have to tick what we want in the order form and we can order as many as we could but certain popular dish we could only order once. But we actually order once for most of the food and there are some dishes we did not order cause it is just too much for us...lol.



More photos of the food in the next post.

Dinner at Jumbo Restaurant

We had a sumptous dinner last weekend at Jumbo Restaurant at Safra Resort. I did not take photos of the rest of the dishes cause I have taken and posted so many times in my blog before...lol. But this fish looked so unique, I just have to take a photo of it. Sorry it is so blur cause I taken the photo with my handphone.



You can see a clearer photo of the fish at Jumbo website.

Good old fashioned butter cream cake


Wow my hubby bought some good old fashioned butter cream cakes. Nowdays only some bakery still baked these cakes.
I remember during my wedding, we need to give a box of ten of these cakes to my relatives and friends. Only the bride's side need to give cakes with the invitation cards, while the bridgegroom just give invitation cards to their relatives and friends.

Nowadays brides just give cake vouchers together with their invitation cards to their friends.

Snack - Tim Tams

What better way to chase the boring afternoon away than snack on my favourite chocolate biscuits. :) I like the original flavour, they comes in many flavours.
