What do you do when you are all stressed out?

Back to back 8 hours classes on a dry subject like Tax = Driving someone insane and crazy to applying for a Shangri La card.

Then days later, it hit him that he just spent RM500 on a card which would lead him to becoming even poorer in the future as he plans his dietary requirements around the restaurants housed in Shangri La hotel; Zipangu, Shang Palace, Lemon Garden, The Pub and LaFite.

So what does he do?

He calls up Zipangu on Saturday and lands himself in a buffet line that only costs him RM96++ for 2 persons during lunch.

WAHAHA.



Especially after i saw how some people paid RM 150 for a few slices of fish decorated nicely, numerous plates similar to the above picture was served with no worries.

Internet down, thought i tempt you guys mean time, wait for the full blown review soon.

Those oysters are beckoning to me... and the salmon, exposing their naked flesh. *slobbering me tongue on the screen*

that pic just makes me want to cook it! I love seafood, but not so fond of them raw.

Henry Yeo said...

Hhhmm...studying for exam and yet still have to find time to attend LL's birthday surprise...you sure make a lot of sacrifices.

We pray for you, Joe.

fatboybakes said...

congratulations on your card to gastronomic pleasures. actually shang palace not that bad la, i always go there with wife when we want quick chinese. the scallop and enoki mushroom soup is good, the claypot seafood noodles excellent. add another pork rib dish... (usually enough to ta pau) and your bill will be less than RM100 for two.

oh, and it wasnt RM150, my bad. (if it was us you were referring to), it was RM215.

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

I still like Shang Palace too. Wow, didn't know about the Zipangu sat lunch deal. Must try. Thanks! (And thanks for coming out for my surprise bday party ...regardless of what da fler up there says, I'm really touched that you turned up, Joe...*muaks*)
