Berbuka Puasa Excitement

All my bosses were in good mood and decided to treat all our Muslim staff to the Best Berbuka Puasa buffet in town. Our lady boss promptly suggested Lemon Garden which is famous for their exorbitant ceiling prices and lavish food spread. It was like RM130++ per person! Goodness! Normal days would be RM148++.

So we all left the factory very early to beat the traffic jam madness to reach Shangri-la Hotel by 7pm. My bosses arrived very late and my "favourite boss" who slaves me is YB. Seah Leong Peng the well known ADUN in Perak State could not make it. Yay!



I was the first to arrive at 6:00pm cos I went to lepak in town, having foot and shoulder massage! Kekekeke... The minute I stepped into the hotel's lobby, the traditional Malay musicians started to play as if to welcome me. I stood there and enjoyed their excellent performance.





I was shocked to see reservations was packed and full to the brim. Luckily we booked 2 weeks earlier and had nice row of 40 seats inside. All the other diners had to sit outside at the whole foyer as shown in the above photo. That showed how popular that place wass and consumers would pay any price to eat! Our economy must be still good this year. Tiger Woods is coming in October to play and my company will be busy 24/7 again like last year which I posted "My 18 Hole Experience!"




This was the first time I saw mini lobsters being served in the Japanese food section. They served lots of food but it was packed with hundreds of hungry diners, so I could not take all the photos.



I ate until I almost vomited just to show the boss that I enjoyed myself. I am posting mostly the desserts as that was what I liked most.


More sinful food!




The above photos is the boss who was shot fatally and survived with 100 stitches on his face. Below right is his new bodyguard who is so muscular with 6 packs and sharp eyes like a hawk.




The bunch of happy idiots in my department where 4 are despatch clerks under my thumb and mercy always. We need 4 despatch clerks just to handle advertising license applications which are so tedious and crazy. I did not post the photos of my Chinese colleagues as they are mostly hypocites and deserve no mention. The above despatch monkey has been banned from eating next year's buffet as he only ate a plate of white rice, 1 curry fish and ice kacang!! He just refused to eat more in a 5-Star Hotel. I told him to stay at home next year.

I will be posting my Japanese Trip photos next. HAPPY MONDAY TO YOU!

  2. Your bosses are so generous! RM130++ per person is so expensive like hell!

    My boss will only treats us, provided a table of 10 is RM130 or below!

    1. And he won't simply treat us one - I'm under him for almost 10 years and I think I got free lunch from him less than 5 times.

      Delete
    2. There was one time we were doing system upgrading. We were supposed to get consultants to help with the upgrading, but my stingy management decided to do it in-house (which meant we needed to do it, and no, we are not having consultant's salary).

      After the project successful, guess what we got?

      A lunch at Jom Bali franchise outlet..... KNN!! We, small flies helped them to save hundreds of thousand and yet get treated with peanuts!

      Delete
    3. Ya lor, some more it was happened gazillion years ago, if waiting for my boss to treat us, I guess long long time I have died of starvation.

      Delete
    4. Honestly, I wish that my bosses are stingy instead. One loves to count chickens even before the hens lay eggs! So many times the hens died!

      Delete
    5. I agree that RM130++ is too expensive as most of them did not eat much. I made the money worth and added 2 kilos! Sobs!

      Delete
    6. RM130++, you better make sure you are there from buffet opens till closed lah! Crazy expensive.

      RM130++ for a plate of white rice, lagi CRAZY!

      But was it his first experience at a 5-star hotel, TM? Some people dunno how to choose and at classy buffets especially if its their first time, tau. Slowly, slowly train him lah i.e. invite him more. LOL

      Delete
    7. yalor, so generous lah RM130++ for everyone!! but that skinny despatch guy, adui, how can he just finished up with a plate of rice and curry and ice kacang only?? that don't even worth RM13!!!

      Delete
    8. That skinny despatch is the youngest and hails from the Kampung Kuala Selangor. Lina is right, it was his first buffet meal in his life and dared not even eat the desserts!

      Delete
    9. I really screamed at him when I saw him eating a plateful full of white rice and not Briyani or Fried Rice!!!! Yeah I think the total was less than RM13 cos he only drank the plain cold water. LOL

      Delete
    10. yah le RM130.. is really crazy expensive..
      If it is RM130 better go to Le Meridien..
      I heard the food were a lot better..
      so annay when you want to treat us buffer?
      I am OK with Shabu shabu.. :)
      I table only cost RM300.. for you big boss sure no problem le..

      Delete
    11. I no problem if Anay treat me at Mamak also. Bila? ;)

      Delete
    12. aiyo RM130 can belanja one table people makan jor lo.Generous la your bosses.

      But at least the bosses know how to appreciate staffs la. Everyone happy.

      Wei u curi ayam and go out of office so early ah? 6pm already arrived the place

      Delete
  3. I rather eat buffets at other times. Less chaotic!

    1. Oh, I kinda agree with this statement :)

      Delete
    2. I agree too. It was the most packed buffet session I ever had. All were hungry and grabbing food. Mana ada class??

      Delete
    3. I never like buffets esp in Malaysia. Too many hungry sharks around. kekeke

      Delete
    4. no choice lah Lina, i don't go overseas as frequent as you mah.. but if i'm having buffet, definitely not during Ramadhan month, it's getting so overpriced, i can have the same thing at pasar ramadhan at 10% of the price~~

      Delete
    5. This Lina is like a celebrity! She visited Japan more often than I bought new under wears!!! Kekekekekeke

      Delete
    6. last time when i was young we always say when eating buffet..
      keluar duit and keluar nyawa for eating a lot..

      Delete
  4. TM, I love the dessert in buffet as well. That's my favourite corner. All the Nyonya Kuih and sweet soup are my top liking.

    1. Btw, the boss that kena shot one, still looked handsome, no scar at all on his face. Did he go to Korea or Japan for the plastic surgery? So successful one.

      Delete
    2. Yalor, that boss looks more handsome that his bodyguards :p

      Delete
    3. The despatch clerks are small eaters. Aiyo! If I were there, I will like glutton mama. I am very easily lured by food.

      Delete
    4. Yeah the boss is more handsome than his bodyguard. Honestly, he looks good from far with my blurry camera! His face texture looks like Avocado Fruit.

      Delete
    5. You should have just bought a carton of cigarettes for them lah TM! I bet those they will devour quickly. wakaka

      Delete
    6. very true, actually what attract me most in a buffet are the appetiser (especially cold cuts) and the desserts (all kinds).. can have rounds of them without problem at all..

      Delete
    7. I was eating many plates of fruits dipped into the chocolate fountains! Yum! Yum!

      Delete
  5. TM goes makan ular as usual ka?

    That foot and shoulder massage comes with extra services, no? You didn't bring SP along, ka? He'll be delighted to get his stick stirred into different apom batter, kakakaka! Oppss!

    1. Eh!!! How could you guess that SP was there??? He massaged them instead.

    3. Sure boh Thambee??? You gave me a fright la. This woman is a terrorist?? From CIA?

  6. Ban your despatch clerk from buffet and bring me instead :D :D

    I think you'll eventually ban me too, I tend to overeat.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. mai jao hai! I guess the hotel will ban me from entering their buffet, because i can eat more than RM130.

      Delete
    2. Yo! I rather eat at the coffee shop and order Bai Kuat Wong. I felt that it was sinful to spend too much that night.


      Goodness! Both of you Y&Y are such BIG EATERS and can swallow whole cows!!! How come you don't look Sum Tim Har?

      Delete
    3. mai jao hai!! eat so little why go buffet?? overeat okay lah, i like people who can eat a lot in buffet.. so Yvonne sure kena blacklisted by the hotel, hahahaha~~ maybe those who eat too little also blacklist, because they make people think the food is not nice, spoiled the image!!

      Delete
    4. Next time we look for the cheapest buffet in KL and GO ATTACK okay???

    1. I had to walk in circles and let off some fart before resume eating.

  11. But nowadays cannot eat as much as last time, so buffet is no longer worth going for me. I prefer ala-carte now : )

    1. When we get older, we look at our waistlines so often!

  12. Still. I have to say Lemon Garden has one of the best buffets in KL. But I noticed even their quality had deteriorated : (

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think the quality is still there but the crowd has grown ten folds. 10 years ago I could hear the next table chewing his salad. It was so quiet and class then.

  13. No offend bro, I really don't like this fashion of "hantaming" such like this for "break of fast" but if it is with some Erdinger,Hoogerdan or Heineken,, can lah,,hahahhahahahah

    1. Wah! Beer with food to break fast?? We will get into hot soups!

    2. If a place that promotes Ramadhan buffet and still serve alcohol, you can bet your money they will kena raid after that!

      Delete
  14. I always have bone to pick about Ramadhan buffets because being all glutton and wasting so much to eat is just not what Ramadhan is all about. :(

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I also disagree on all these expensive buffets during Ramadhan. Day time they starve and night time feast themselves so lavishly. A bit confusing.

      Delete
  15. My company will be spending a lot of $$$ buying vouchers for Ramadhan buffets because the staff at government offices we have dealings with will sure ask for them!

    Don't give, they all not happy. Is that a Ramadhan spirit? No!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Ramadhan is all about GIVING mah, correct?? :p

      Delete
    2. Giving, yes.

      But don't ask people to give. ;p

  16. wah, so nice leh Anay's boss!! i think he's trying to do more good things for better karma, or after that incident he actually become more generous??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. RM130++ per person, so 40 of you meaning the bill came out as over RM5000!! fuyoh, but then ok lah, not even half of Anay's salary~~

      Delete
    2. but at least they have the japanese section there, better than other places that just serve local treats lah..

      Delete
    3. That boss who kena tembak, I don't report to him. Woiii, what about my salary!!!! I am getting chicken feeds! Go look for SP Soros!!!

      Delete
  17. How much? SO EXPENSIVE!!! *faints* I saw so many posts on all these buffets in all the blogs. I really think it is really ridiculous paying that amount of money...and one had nasi kerabu with a wedge of salted egg. RM3.50 at my kampung Malays stall...and probably a whole lot nicer too.

    I do feel people should all boycott these daylight robberies - see whether they want to reduce the prices next year or not. Same thing with the mooncakes. I'm not buying! Period!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. woot!! everyone look here, STP says he is not buying mooncake!! let's remember this, and if he buys later, we ketuk him~~ :p

      Delete
    2. Ha ha ha ha.... I think he will never buy cos many friends might even courier the cakes to him even from the Moon.

  18. i don't take photo if i go buffet also lah, it's weird you are snapping everywhere.. i go there to eat not taking photos mah..

    1. but then i think this is the trend lah, besides seeing crowds of people holding plates on their hands, you can also see crowds of youngsters holding DSLR with them!!
