Saturday Seafood Buffet @ Royale Chulan Penang

Life is short and too boring to have the daily routine, so taking a hiatus of nearly six months and this time I decided to come back with a buffet spread! Stepping into working society had made me treasure the wonderful weekends, spending quality time with another part of the society because I love new discovery. (and to cut off phone time as well).

So I got to feast on seafood buffet at Royale Chulan Penang, it's perfectly scheduled on Saturdays where I'm able to join the crowd with beloved ones in the evening. Here's some highlights I had in the evening.

Seafood Paella
I'd had few positive feedback for this, a good start

Grilled Seabass with Orange Beurre Blanc

Flower Crab Alfredo with Fusilli Pasta
When it comes to seafood, Japanese station is surely a staple including various kinds of sashimi and sushi.

I eye on the scallop after the the big snapper though!
However, I'd prefer to have scallop mornay, serving in the buffet too.

The tako is definitely one of the highlight of the buffet

Assorted Sushi featuring Ebiko Sushi, Inari Sushi, Tuna Sushi

Action Station also catered for selected seafood including:
Baked Whole Chilled Salmon with Chives, Sour Cream and Honey Mustard
This is simply to everyon's liking I suppose.
The chef will carefully serve you with some wedges and condiment, making it just right for every bite.

Stir Fry Chili Crab
The gravy is something make me feel tantalising!

Fish Head Curry
Asian being asian, it's best paired with white rice!

Dessert, ice kacang ice cream etc

Seafood buffet shouldn't missing out dessert for the diners.
I guess we need some sweet after the savoury on the fresh catch.

Apple Struddel

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

You may get to DIY ice kacang and customise the topping as well.

And of course, tea and coffee are also served in case you're craving for some caffeine. Why not get some fruits to boost some fibre too? So much glad to have my favourite jackfruit in the buffet too.

Hotel Review: 2D1N in G Suite, G Hotel Gurney, Penang

Surprising Christmas gift I have ever had! If you have been sticking with me on IG (@mablemaeve), I'd attended G Hotel Media Appreciation Evening back in July and won the prize for 2 days 1 night at G Suite, G Hotel Gurney!!

The event brought up all attendee (media members) to participate into games, rewards including buffet vouchers and hotel room stay. So I managed to beat the rest in a game and got the first prize which is a stay of 2 days 1 Night at G Hotel Gurney, G Suite!

The best getaway for me totally carefree! No work stress, no make up, no rules to obey...all simply follow our heart to go. How long have you missed such relaxation?

Qipao in the town

Despite my weekends in January is scheduled earlier (getaway for twice), I managed to get a slot for an outdoor portrait photoshoot. This time I worked with a colleague of mine, Nick. He is a freelance photographer for portrait photography (mostly), and just recently he challenges himself in videography.

We two had been talking about this since beginning of January (in conjunction with Chinese New Year that coming the next month). I only own the black qipao (bought at RM 10, brand new piece). We also thought it'd be great to have a vintage style qipao at the heritage area so the pink-coloured checker qipao belongs to my friend's mum (yes, over 50-year-old auntie damn chio ok)

Theme: Qipao in the town (CNY 2019 edition)
Venue: (1) Beach Street, Penang银行街 
            (2) Clan Jetty Penang 姓氏桥
            (3) Kuan Yin Temple观音亭
Shooting Time: 4pm - 9pm  

Here's some highlight of the activities spent in the last Sunday of January.
