Buffet: “Back to Recess” at M hotel
Ratings: 1/10
Comments: Will never go back again.

Seriously, this is the worst buffet I have ever tasted. Not only the food sucks, even the service is nothing commendable.

The show hosted on TV was so misleading. Yes Perhaps I thought things were too good to be true and too optimistic for my own good. The so-called specials like foie gras dumpling and lobster chee cheong fan were not at all special. Foie gras chunks were overcooked and tasted like pieces of bland meat. Holy shit. What a waste of delicacy. And dont mention about the lobster chee cheong fan. The lobster stinked as if it has gone bad. I only bit once and swore that I will never touch it again. How can they serve stuff like this???

I really cant think of any nice stuff. Buffet was ready only 20minutes after we arrived. And every special dish was served at least half an hour late according to the “timetable”, limited to 1 per pax. Worse still, we couldnt get to taste the Peking Duck Quesadilla Scroll when we asked about it. The waitress got the cheek to tell me they have run out of it and didnt even apologised for it. Merely stating it in a matter-of-fact way and then left abruptly. Anyway, doubt it was anything worth mentioning.

Smoked salmon was wayyyy too salty. Crayfish and prawn were not especially fresh and bland but at least they were not stale. Even the icecream are cheap icecream. Desserts were so-so. The nicest dish was probably the rolled crepe with mango. The mango pudding sucks. Omg…what the hell is the chef doing? Almost all the dishes were worse than average. And they dared to charge a $48+++ for a sunday brunch. Really such audacity. We went there in school uniform and were entitled to 20% discount. Even that comes up to $90.45 for both.

Surprisingly many people turned up for the buffet not wearing uniforms. Singaporeans are really generous on food. However, I feel so sorry for them. Paying so much for lousy food.

One special touch was that few staff came around and offered us paper graduation caps. They took picture of us and set them in a cheapo paper frame. From the pictures, you can also see the cheapo setup according to the theme. M hotel…….Pui ah!

My Saturday

Yesterday met up with Huey for dinner at PS. We went Tea Cosy at level 5. I had a set dinner while she had Decadent salad. I love her salad more than mine because the ingredients were pretty substantial, with 5 big prawns and chunks of foie gras. Mine was a grilled dory fish fillet, with mushroom soup and mini tart with icecream as dessert. And it was Huey’s treat. Thank you so much. She refused to accept my money and said she can eat her fill at my chalet too. Haha Ok lor.

PS was hoarded with people, especially in the newly opened E’TUDE house at Basement 1. It should be the 1st store in Singapore and there was a big hoohaa over it. I love E’TUDE, the products are pretty good, except the eye makeup remover, which stings big time. However, I like the pricing in Korea better. Anyway, it will be my next fave beside The Face Shop.

Huey also gave me a voucher for free haircut and treatment to prep myself for the big day. Yay! I do need a haircut..I look like ghost these days because the hair is getting longer and longer. The kind of length where you will wake up in the middle of the night wondering who is strangling you to death by pulling a rope against your neck. Yeah, it’s the damn hair. And nowadays, I sleep with a loose ponytail to counter that problem, it’s also cooler.

We didnt really shop much. But I suddenly remembered we can go Carrefour to look at the wines. Too bad the wine fair had just ended. Nevertheless,we saw few good wines selling at affordable prices. And I finally found Lindeman’s wines and we got it all delivered to my house today. Thanks to Huey’s card, got extra 5% rebates. But hor, I suddenly realised the ones I bought is different from the ones Rain, Jas and me had at Red Mansion. =(

Nahz…anyway…hope the same brand wont be too far off.

Today I realised another friend didnt get my wedding invitation SMS. Arrghhh…think I got to call to make sure again soon.

Very excited about tomorrow’s buffet because dearie and me finally found school uniforms. All thanks to Eil. She borrowed from her cousins for me. So sweet of her. Anyway, the buffet BETTER BE GOOD MANZ! To make the 2 old uncle and auntie to come in uniforms! But kinda think of it, also quite cute and fun lah. We will bring camera to take pictures and make you all puke. Haha. Perhaps we should match with a thick black-framed glasses, wear plaits etc. Muahahaha Kidding. Not that adventurous or BHB. I just want the bloody 20% discount. And still, THE FOOD BETTER BE GOOD! Looking forward to the scallops, lobsters and foie gras. =D

Comments: It was our first time watching a 3D movie despite it being an animation. In the beginning was all the oOohs and ahHhhs. Hahaha damn sua-gu. The effects were all very nice! I find it not hilarious enough..but still pretty interesting. 3D effect is the way manz!!!

Tracy, my videographer, also Huey’s friend is hospitalised. =( God bless her. Get well soon! Will probably visit her with Huey after she discharged because I avoid going hospital as I’m getting married in 2months time.
