Majlis Berbuka Puasa @ Grand Dorsett

3 09 2011

On 24th August 2011, I attended a Majlis Berbuka Puasa organised by Grand Dorsett Subang Hotel. This was part of the Grand Dorsett’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) initiative where orphans from Kanak-Kanak Rumah Kasih Rawang were invited by the Dorsett Community Care Committee to join in for the berbuka puasa (breaking of fast) event.

Mr. Leo Kuscher (General Manager for Grand Dorsett Hotel) gave a welcoming speech followed by a heartwarming Nasyid performance by the talented orphans from Rumah Kasih Rawang. Mr. Leo also presented a mock cheque to one of the caretaker from the orphanage before adjourning to the grandballroom for the breaking of fast.

The Ramadhan Buffet was very enjoyable with over 100 type of home cooked food to choose from. The Soup Gearbox which was served from a huge pot was unmistakably the highlight among all the local dishes available that night. I was told that the soup was cooked with spinal fluid which made the soup thicker and creamier.

I also enjoyed eating the Roti Bom which goes well with the thick spicy sardine gravy. Other dishes such as grilled lamb, ikan bakar, Nasi Arab, Popiah Taiping, Tempura and the mouth watering Ais Krim Goreng were some of my personal favourites.

On this note, I would like to thank Ivy (Create Studio) and Zarmila (Grand Dorsett)  for inviting me to this wonderful event.

Paya Serai Restaurant @ PJ Hilton

6 08 2011

A few days ago, I had a chance to sample over 100 types of local and International delights courtesy of the Paya Serai’s Ramadhan buffet located at PJ Hilton. In fact, I was one of the lucky few who got to enjoy the Ramadhan buffet for free which was only offered to the first 100 guests on the first day of Ramadhan. Overall, I was satisfied with the food which range from Malay, Chinese, Indian and international cuisines. Food were definitely fresh and some of the more notable dishes were grilled lamb, satay and oysters. If I have just one complain, it would be the sheer variety of food which can be overwhelming for me (and my stomach, of course). As a result, I didn’t manage to try their dessert which I heard is equally good as well.

Ramadhan Baazar @ Bangsar Baru

23 08 2010

Since it is the Ramadhan month, I took a quick walk around the bazaar around Jalan Maarof at Bangsar to see what the Malay traders were selling last weekend. Unfortunately, the Sunday night market was also there which lessen the number of traders there. Here are some of the quick snapshots I took during my brief visit there.
