I am not a buffet aficionado but I guess in this time of Ramadhan, it is a nice platform to bond with families and also to lavish yourself once in a while. I mean, I am not a shopaholic and I don’t really go for fancy stuffs; so I guess once in a while I just pamper myself with a nice-dining atmosphere will do no harm, no? So, this weekend for Iftar, we went to Pan Pacific KLIA Hotel; just for small treat to ourselves.
All I can say is that, Pan Pac served WAY BETTER dishes than Palm Garden. Of course, initially last week, Kakak was deliberating to book either Marriott Putrajaya or KLIA Pan Pac but both were fully-booked! Thus, we went for Palm Garden though Kakak told us that the food ain’t that good. But oh, well at least I had the experience of having Iftar there. Anyway, back to Pan Pac KLIA, I thought that the money lavished were worthy. The pricing is RM99++ per person but it’s really worthy, I say!
Delicious Briyani! With Beef and lamb-chop & gravy.
Trifle & cookies!
My mouth-watering favourite would be the MUZZLE (yeah, I am an ardent seafood lover!)!!! Add some sour citrus flavour, the taste is so tempting! Kakak was hopeful for the oysters but unfortunately, no oysters served. And then there were the Briyani with delicious beefs and some lamb-chops with gravy!!! Yummy! I just love the Briyani – isn’t that an impeccable significance as a true Penangite? And of course the cookies! I felt like in a Willy Wonka factory or Dylan’s Candy Bar! Assorted cookies with varicoloured creams and icings gracing the table; the Raya festivity was in the air.
My favourite!!!! Muzzles!!!!
I also managed to have bites of bolognaise (I couldn’t find the spaghetti; so instead, I just took potions of “mee” nearby! lol, at least it seemed spiralled!), assorted-colours trifles, “apam balik” (greenish; I think it was made with ‘pandan’) and fried bananas, and many more.

Cheers to the cherry?
With singers belting out traditional numbers and Raya songs, the exclusivity is a hybrid of traditional meets aristocracy. I love it!
Anyway, as of today, I finally managed to complete reading the Yann Martel’s book “Life Of Pi” after 3 weeks due to time-constraint and all. On whole, I can conclude that the novel is quite an overrated one although the plot on survival is strong and mind-blowing. I am not sure why the novel is a best-selling but I guess the essence about survival is quite enthralling. Imagine yourself got stuck in a boat for 7 months with a Royal Bengal tiger? There were also a lot of killings, cannibalism, faeces-eating, raw-meant devour and many more which could give the stomach some sour turns IF you were to imagine the sequences in your head!

Nonetheless, I am just excited about the upcoming film flick directed by Ang Lee this December. Hopefully, it will turn to be a good one in the hands of Oscar-nominated director. (,”)
