As you're reading this, we're on our way Down Under on MAS of course (but NOT sponsored *hint hint Jonathan/Wai Fong!!! LOL*) for the entire week. We're there to attend the convocation of Capt'n Hook who recently completed his MBA programme. Since there will be a flurry of activities and uncertainties, I've not contacted anyone there to meet up, sorry ya. There will be scheduled post going up during this period but I won't be able to entertain any comments or emails unless I have access to the internet.
By now, MAS would have flymas.mobi, the world’s most comprehensive mobile booking system rolled out. You can book and pay your flight, check your flight status, check-in, yada yada including just show your boarding pass on your phone to board. How canggih eh?! Also check out MAS on Facebook for all the latest happenings, promos and contest! As if this is not enough, you can also check out the employees blog, how's that?
Back to the MAS get together, this event happened sometime back in late October. Just a gathering to catch up with each other. I was ecstatic as I sat next to my yoga idol, Ninie Ahmad! Was so star struck but I kept my composure :p stop short of giggling and biting my nails like high school girls! :p
Since I'm a food blogger, well I guess I'll just zoom down on Restoran Rebung which is of course own by Chef Ismail and Dr Sheikh Muszaphar (our angkasawan, in case you dunno).
This Malay restaurant is famous for it's buffet spread. There are a large varieties of appetisers, gulai, lauk, grilled fish, noodles dishes and of course lipsmacking desserts. The spread is quite large, just nice as I would say. I didn't manage to sample all, virtually just a bit of something that tickled my fancy. Loved all their gulai and curries especially the stuffed sotong.
Again, fell in love with serawa durian albeit a bit too sweet for me. They used gula melaka for this version which gave the extra caramel taste.
Just like Paya Serai, it's one of the better place to bring foreign guests to sample Malay food as oppose to Seri Melayu which the food is just so so. My only peeve here is parking, so just like most people, park by the roadside which is all right if there's space.
