The Tale of Pompous Eating

Thursday, 14th April 2011 marked a day of food epic-ness. The day my closest buddies and I went to:

‘JOGOYA’

Promoting Jogoya? By all means^^

Located directly opposite this behemoth of a shopping mall. Go through J.W. Marriott hotel to get there.

It is a Japanese fusion restaurant, established in 2006 which serves up…well…anything that you could think of. I mean, come on, the restaurant alone covers up an area of about 30,000 square feet. That’s slightly smaller or about the size of a football pitch. The cuisine from the main quarters are present for consumption, namely: Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Western, Malay, Teppanyaki and many more. And guess what. So what is the main theme for this restaurant?

5 words dear readers:

ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFET!!!

Well isn’t that strange. All you can eat with the best food available. The question now is, why do frugal people like myself actually go for something like that. It’s bound to be pricey and I am a class one Ipoh-Cheapo. So, what’s the catch? Hmm…. Well, it’s this:

dec pop

That’s right, the Ipoh-Cheapo would never go for anything without a sale, discount or an offer. The price is about RM98 but since it’s for 2 people, we divided it in half making it about RM 50. Mind you, it may seem a lot to pay but it was well worth the money. I mean, come to think of it, it was damn hell worth it. Why do I say so? Have a look at this:

King Crab (for Jogoya members only but who cares, everyone is a member right?)

Honestly, when I checked out the place, I couldn’t believe what the website said was true. They had everything and by everything, I mean EVERYTHING!!! It was impossible to complete the entire line-up of food even if we were to consume minute quantities of all of them. To prove my point, I have compiled a list of food consumed by all of us

The total death toll of food are as follows:

  1. 10 huge oysters                            
  2. 15 Tiger Prawns
  3. 500 grams of squid
  4. 38 assorted shellfishes
  5. 14 giant clams
  6. 2 pieces of mackerel
  7. 2 pieces of codfish
  8. 8 cheese baked potatoes
  9. 46 assorted sushi pieces
  10. 50 grams of abalone
  11. 150 grams of crab
  12. 40 grams of salmon
  13. 4 cream soufflé
  14. 16 plates of assorted dim sum
  15. 12 bowls of Hagen–Daz ice cream
  16. 8 bowls of herbal soup
  17. 10 sticks of marshmallow & chocolate
  18. 12 pieces of friend prawn dumplings
  19. 5 giant clams
  20. 8 assorted types of drinks

All in all, it is clearly visible that there was an insurmountable amount of binging involved during the feast. And the list above was about only half of what was present for consumption. For the first time ever, I entered hyper-kiasu mode (mode which sees me tanking up on all the unique food). The main deal however was not about the delicious assortment of food available but more accurately, it was who was eating along. To be surrounded with your closest friends gave an even warmer atmosphere to the meal (because everyone had steamy breath…XD). It’s just so awesome to have your closest brothers and sisters eating at the same table. Anyway, it was a fun filled night filled with lots of talking, eating, drinking, more talking, even more eating and so on.

At the end of it all, I realised I was pregnant. I couldn’t even button up my pants. Seriously, my waistline really expanded by nearly an inch. So, we went straight back to INTI in Alex’s trusty car. Poor car had to strain to carry so many people inside. By the time we got back, everyone just felt like dropping down and sleeping.

It was really an enjoyable day with the most enjoyable friends ever. Love ya’ll. Take care.

Review–Pentahotel Hong Kong (Kowloon)

This is my first time doing this sort of a review so please bear with me and do give me your most honest feedback (should there be any). During my recent trip to Hong Kong, I was staying in a rather unique boutique hotel with a superb concept. An Overview
Pentahotel Hong Kong (Kowloon) is situated in an area known as Diamond Hill in Kowloon, the price for the night is significantly cheaper than the hotels on the main island of Hong Kong. Situated inconspicuously among factory and warehouses, privacy and peace are essential guarantees of this hotel.  The hotel boasts a towering 32-floors in height and a total of 695 guest rooms. Despite the building being 32 floors high, there are 6 elevators ensuring that no one has to wait more than a minute before getting an elevator. Accompanying facilities include a convenience store, recreation room, a cafe, a pizza bar and conference facilities. Further details will be listed at the end of the review.First Impressions

23rd Birthday @ Thirty8, Grand Hyatt

I may be about 2 months too late but I do want to share about a truly amazing birthday surprise. As my 23rd birthday came to view, I noticed my dear girlfriend was busy on the phone. I never really gave it much thought about what she was doing (perhaps ordering some girls stuff via the telephone?). However, I didn't know she was planning a surprise for my birthday. 

On the day itself, she dressed herself up really splendidly. I on the other hand managed to put on a shirt and a pair of jeans (the male effort of dressing up splendidly). She set the GPS for me and I just followed it all the way until we found ourselves at the entrance of the Grand Hyatt @ Kuala Lumpur. Mouth left ajar, I began to question what did she do (I'm a frugal person so places like the Grand Hyatt would rarely appear on my list). 
Entering the lift, we went up to the 38th floor and that was when I realised that there was such a restaurant called Thirty8. Unbeknownst to the general people like you and me, th…

Singapore Airline Training and Outing @ Parkroyal Penang

Hello again, dear readers. As you might have already known, I am currently a Senior Marketing Executive for Singapore Airlines Limited. It has been already 7 months since I've joined Singapore Airlines. Anyway, like all major corporations, there will always be either an annual dinner or outing. In the case of Singapore Airlines Limited, for the year 2015, we chose Penang as the spot to have our annual staff outing and dinner.

DAY 1: HEADING THERE

The day started early. By early, I mean waking up at 0530 hours to head to office (pickup point). Before heading there, we dropped by to fetch my colleague Douglas. What was interesting to know was that the roads at that hour were completely empty. It is eerie to know that the roads that I go through daily, fighting off traffic was now nothing more than a desolate scene out of the walking dead. Anyway, enough thoughts. When we got to the office, we had a light breakfast at the mamak downstairs. After "suffing" ourselves, we head…
