Halloween Ghost House Dinner @Avillion Admiral Cove

Every year, on 31st October marks the actual day of Halloween. What is your plan today?

Over the centuries Halloween transitioned from a pagan ritual to a day of parties, costumes, jack-o-lanterns and trick-or-treating for kids and adults.

Halloween is celebrated in various and creative ways depending on each country’s cultural influences. The common yet popular among the children would be trick or treat and also dressing Halloween costumes.

This year, I am glad to be able to join a Halloween Theme Dinner.

In conjunction to this spooky celebration, Avillion Admiral Cove has organized a Ghost House Dinner which held at their Bourgainvillae Cafe.

Okay, I tried to put up the best in me… LOL!

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Demon, Grim Reapor, Vampire and not forgetting a Hantu Pocong! 😀

Jet was initially feeling excited to go to the party, then repeatedly hide behind me upon seeing the team. He claimed they look scary. LOL!

Do they look scary?

Haruta @d’Tempat Country Club, Seremban

Haruta is one of the F&B outlet located at d’Tempat Country Club, Seremban. Haruta been labeled as Japanese Fine Dining Restaurant. Hence its still very new in town. Started since beginning of year 2015.

In conjunction to Malaysia’s Merdeka day, Haruta had a promotion of buffet lunch at price of RM58++ per person. It was held on 3 consecutive days 29th, 30th & 31st August 2015, during lunch hour from 12-2pm.

I decided to give it a try afterall its just a short driving distance from my home. Together with my family we head to Haruta to give it a try. Moreover it was Haruta’s first time to held a buffet.

At the entrance of Haruta

As you walk into the restaurant, you will be able to see these deco.

The restaurant look modern & classy. It does gives you the ‘Atas‘ feel.

We were quite punctual therefore you could see the restaurant look so vacant. But in real fact, it was fully booked.

The sashimi is a ‘MUST TRY’ item. It was very fresh. Look at the nice & thick cut of each slices.

(above are salmon & tuna)

Not sure if you fancy these…but its something everyone mustn’t miss. How can you not try sashimi when you are at a Japanese restaurant? 😀 😀

Stir Fry Vegetables, Fresh Salads, Stir fry Udon, Fried Rice are served here too.

Both black pepper udon & potato salad were quite nice.

Assorted Tempura

Grilled Scallops & Cold Tofu.

a close up of the grilled scallop. Not much was served and it was quite ‘laku’.

Choices of Nigiri / Sushi served.

The varieties of nigiri/sushi served was quite limited. Anyway….they did well on their nigiri/sushi.

A small section on sweet stuffs. They were Japanese Sweet Potato & Pumpkin Pudding. Sorry….don’t quite fancy the pumpkin pudding. Tasted rather bland.

Nevertheless, the green tea ice cream was a great hit. Was quite limited too. Creamy & nice green tea taste.

Chawanmushi wasn’t quite nice either.

The mussels & tamago was not bad.

Jet Jet was busy self feeding too.

Before I conclude…I would like to say that d’Tempat Country Club is a nice clubhouse located at Sendayan, Seremban. It is next to the Matrix International School. Equipped with facilities like, swimming pool, tennis court, ping pong court, games room. Only club members are allowed to use these facilities.

Back to the restaurant…..

My verdict: The restaurant has a nice environment. Modern & classy. The food quality was not too bad… food were fresh especially the seafood. However the food variation/choices were quite limited. I was expecting some fresh oysters, unagi, soba & mochi. Furthermore it took time for them to replenish the food. Understand that this was their first time doing buffet…therefore there are room for improvement.

Dine for 12-hours at Atrium Café, Pyramid Tower Hotel at Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa

Atrium Café of Pyramid Tower Hotel introduces the first 12-hour Marathon Buffet. What are you expecting here? Multiple entry to Atrium Café from 11am to 11pm for a 12-Hour feast of the finest Pan-Asian cuisine. In another word, they named it as Marathon Buffet. Sounds interesting and feeling the excitement with ‘multiple entry’ throughout the day!  Imagine I can do my shopping at Sunway Pyramid, feeling hungry? Then returned to the dining hall to fill my stomach. So convenient right? (Sunway Pyramid linking to Atrium Cafe at 4th Floor)

Successfully grabbed this deal with the recommendation by Baby Sumo….for just paying RM55

Sparing and arranging my time will all the good deals coming around, finally I’m redeeming my coupon just before it expires. Traveled from Seremban, I reaches at 12pm. Regarding about the ‘multiple entry’, how do they identify their guests? Alex & I were, each were given a handwrist tag. (just like what you got went you visit theme parks. e.g: Sunway Lagoon). Therefore my all day long meals are settled here. My lunch, my tea break, my dinner. And if time permissible, I can continue with supper too! ^^

Atrium Cafe is located on the Lobby Level of the 4-star Pyramid Tower Hotel, adjacent to the 5-star Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa.

The long buffet spread!

Expecting some Malay, Indian, Chinese and Western cuisine? Well…you can get it all here.

The freshly bake bread.

Condiments to prepare your own version of sandwich.

I made myself a yummy croissant filled with egg-mayo, tuna & slices of tomato. The croissant was good. Fluffy and has nice taste of butter.

Assorted dressing for Salad

Appetizers

Individual stalls are set up, serving local cuisines.

Stall #1 – Serving Penang Fried Kuey Teow

Stall #2 – Serving Curry Noodles with condiments

Stall #3 – Assorted cut fruits

Stall #4 – Serving Congee/ Porridge with condiments

Stall #5 – Serving Hainanese Chicken Rice. Flavorful rice together with tender chicken meat. Unfortunately the chili sauce wasn’t good.

Stall #6 – Serving Roti Jala with Curry Chicken. Also Ayam Goreng Berempah. YUM! Love the fried chicken and curry chicken.

At The Noodle Section, one should not miss this Prawn Wanton Mee! The springy noodle goes well with the flavorful soup. Additional credit to the plump & crunchy prawn wanton.

A bed of fresh seafood (mussels, crabs, prawns).

The best Malay cuisine. SATAY! Together with peanut sauce, cucumber, onions and nasi impit. Satay was surprisingly good and its not overdone!

My “not so good” Fettuccine  Marinara, from the Pasta Section =(

Assorted Nyonya kuih.

Dessert Time! Dessert section for people who has sweet tooth….

Cakes & Puddings

Cakes & Tarts. (love the dark chocolate cup) *slurp

Ice Cream Section with condiments.

Assorted condiments for the local favorite. Ice Kacang or known as ABC.

The overall dining experience was average. I was expecting them to serve different types of food between lunch and dinner. Unfortunately, what I see mostly are repeated food. There were about 70% similarity. Abit disappointed lo..imagine eating the same thing throughout the day.

Buffet Dinner @ Eyuzu Japanese Cuisine, Eastin Hotel

“Dear reader, so sorry that this blog went hibernate for a week. Because the author was busy chasing dateline.”

I visited Eyuzu Japanese Cuisine, Eastin Hotel two weeks ago.

Last 2 months, I managed to grab this good deal from Everyday. It attracts 5000 buyers with the value price of RM46/ person. Applicable for dinner from Friday – Sunday.

Thought it would be a great opportunity to use it during ma birthday.

Though the dinner begins at 6.30pm, I was rather surprised seeing a large number of diners queuing at the entrance of Eyuzu (located at first floor). What’s more surprising was that everyone was holding a printed copy of their coupon! Wonder do Eyuzu still serve quality food though knowing the fact that everyone came with coupons.

Eyuzu Japanese Cuisine

Taking after the name of Japan’s rare and expensive fruit of mysterious provenance – /yuzu – /Eyuzu at the Eastin Hotel represents authenticity and exquisiteness. Recently awarded “*Best Asian Cuisines Restaurant*” and “*Best Asian Cuisine Chef*” by the Hospitality Asia Platinum Awards 2005/2006, you will find haute cuisine such as sizzling teppanyaki, sukiyaki, crispy tender tempura and sumptuous sashimi.

My favorite corner. Of sushi & sashimi. They served varieties of fresh handmade sushi & fresh sashimi which I couldn’t resist. Oh ya, they replenish the sashimi pretty quick. So, don’t need to pile up your food till others can’t get their share lor..hehhe…

WOW…check out the fresh sashimi!! Each slice are equally thick. I was told that they served Grade A sashimi. SLURRRPPP….wanting more!

Enjoyed each and every piece of it.

Wide range of Sushi

Wide range of sushi

The prawns were very fresh too

Cold Crabs

Japanese Potato Salad

Cold Tofu

All were place in a small bowl. Look so pleasant and handy!

The crunchy Edamame

Crispy Seaweed, Salmon Skin, Prawn & Crabstick

Unagi was good. Unfortunately the chicken cutlet were quite lousy. Very bland….

Chicken Skewer – not nice. meat too dry.

Teppanyaki Section. Pick your choice of meat and get them to cook for you.

Baked Oyster

Chawan Mushi was awesome. Silky smooth egg with condiments beneath.

Shark Fin Soup – couldn’t find any shark fin though.

Customize your own udon or soba with some condiments. Delicious!

Yeahh…dessert time!

Types of cakes. But they were just average.

Japanese Pancakes were made fresh on the spot. I added honey and chocolate sauce on it. They were small, not too thick and very fluffy. NICE!

Mochi with fillings. (peanut, black sesame, red bean). They are my favorite.

How about some Hot Mochi? They are glutinous ball with fillings boiled in warm water then coated with peanuts. So, its served warm. Unfortunately I think its overcooked. So, it was kinda mushy.

Strawberry & Green Tea Ice Cream

The very laku slices of Melon. The natural sweetness and fragrant which tells me to return for more.

Though there were some not so nice dishes, but with that superb Sashimi I had…I will be happy enough!

Buffet @ The Mill, Grand Millennium KL

With an irresistible deal offered by Everyday (a website that constantly offers great deals) for only RM39.90 we were able to enjoy an international buffet in a 5 Star Hotel. What a steal!! All thanks to Christine whom enlightened us about this deal!! Initially we wanted to use this as a reason to have a small gathering among the MB members. However within 2 days… with an overwhelming response…its SOLD OUT! They managed to sell about a thousand over coupons. Such a good deal, who doesn’t want wor…Me myself managed to grab few for my family.

It end up just myself, Ashley and Christine went for the buffet. A reservation was made few days before we were there. (advisable to do so to avoid disappointment). The Mill, Grand Millennium KL is strategically located next to Pavilion Shopping Centre and directly opposite Fahrenheit 88. The Mill served International Fusion cuisines with a comfy ambiance. I was quite impressed with the varieties of food they served.

BBQ Dinner @ Trader’s Food Shop, Avillion Admiral Cove

As promised earlier; I will blog about my dinner treat at Avillion Admiral Cove.  That night,we decided to try its BBQ Buffet. Its a nice location. Because you may enjoy the nice view of marina while enjoying your meal. But during buffet, how often lar you will go enjoy the scenary…*LOL!* Moreover you hardly choose to sit outdoor…not scared digigit nyamuk meh..

The weekends buffet dinner begins at 6pm. Price is at RM60++

I preferred to be seated indoor (with air condition). Which is more comfortable.

The Salad Line

Pickles and Salad Dressing. Waa…I spotted cincalok. Do you like it?

Salted Fish / Ikan Masin

Wanted to warm up my stomach, I took a bowl of soup noodles served with bean sprout, fish cakes, slices of chicken and some spring onions. Too bad the soup was not warm enough for me. & tasted abit bland too.

Alex eagerly went to get some satay. Which has the longest queue. Worth the queue. Because it really taste good. Juicy and tender chicken meat. Not much fats either. We went second round for this satay.

Grill Sambal Sting Ray

BBQ Chicken Wings & Sausages

The wings have good aroma. Just that it would taste better if they could adjust the salt level. The flesh tasted abit bland.

The Grilled Lamb was good. Tender and tasty. I like it to be covered up with black pepper sauce. You may also choose mushroom sauce.

Sweet & Spicy Grilled Crab

Grilled Prawns – Prawns are fresh!

Porridge with Condiments. I like the combi! The porridge is smooth.

Tom Yam Seafood – Was not pleased with the soup.

Gosh…I wasn’t aware! Its almost half gone. Luckily Chef Ignatius, the Executive Chef was kind enough. He replenished this bowl of fresh mussel just for me to capture another nice shot! A friendly chef indeed. He is very cautious. He seems to check the food on the buffet line every now and then.

replenishing in progress……

Fresh Mussels (After its replenished)

Chef thought me how to differentiate between both colors of mussels. The white and orange ones. Apparently, the ‘white’ is male. While the ‘orange’ is female.

Tosai with Dhal Curry & Sambal

In buffets; the most anticipated part for me would be cakes and desserts. Unfortunately over here the choices are limited.

Hi Tea @ SELERA Coffee House, Klana Resort Seremban

In Seremban, there isn’t much choice or places to enjoy a decent hi-tea buffet. Normally we would either go to Klana Resort Seremban or Royale Bintang Seremban.

In order to avoid any disappointment, we made our reservation with SELERA Coffee House.  We arrived there at about 12.30pm.

Buffet Dinner @ Awana Porto Malai Langkawi

After spending some time at Pantai Cenang in the evening, we then headed to Awana Porto Malai Langkawi for sight seeing. This hotel certainly not strict to strangers getting into their premises. Unlike “The Datai Langkawi”, where we got questioned by the security guard before we could enter the resort. I wouldn’t blame them for the tight security. I suppose, its a luxury resort.

As I know, Awana Porto Malai Langkawi has many Yachts parked around its sea. That would make it a nice sea scenery to me.  Ooppss….I wouldn’t say sea, it should be Lagoon. Anyway, a couple of nice shots would be prefect for me. A quiet and cosy resort too. Apart from enjoying the nice view, we decided to have our dinner there at Boardwalk Cafe.

Too bad..ain’t any sunset shots here.. Perhaps, I need should a night here and wake up much earlier to view the sun rise.

The night view. The tall white tower is the light house.

Christmas Eve Dinner @ Shabu Shabu, Seremban

It was Christmas eve. No turkeys, no western food. Instead we went for Shabu Shabu which newly opened in Seremban. It would be something new for Seremban’s residents. The 1st shabu shabu I had was at Puchong.

What is Shabu Shabu? Refer here:- Shabu Shabu

 

Since its Christmas Eve; we may as well play save. Made reservation in advanced. Mom gave hints to dine there when she first saw the advert printed on the advertising magazine.

 

What I like most above it; is that it has individual soup pot. Moreover the stove for each soup pot has an adjustable flame controller. They have a few types of soup. Herbal Soup, Malat Soup, Tom Yum, Tomato Soup, ABC Soup, Chicken Stock Soup. The Chicken soup will be free of charge. However the rest will have an additional surcharge of RM2. All the soup are refillable.

 

The ambiance

 

Herbal Eggs

 

Assorted Noodles & Vegetables

 

 

 

 

Fresh Mussels & Scallops

 

Ice Cream. (the normal ones)

 

Assorted dipping sauce

 

My pot of tom yam soup. We chose herbal soup, chicken soup, malat soup and tom yum. Eventually all the soup that we’ve picked are nice.

 

Cook everything in the pot

 

The fried chicken is very nice!

 

Price : RM24.60/ person (Free of charge for the birthday boy/girl). I felt that the price is rather abit high for Seremban standard.

 

Ambiance : Looks cosy & nice. But the ventilation is kinda poor. I went home with smelly hair =_=
