I had a very gluttonous weekend, with the usual Saturday night dinner (we went to Alexis this week) and a special once a year pig out session on Sunday to celebrate Mother's Day.
This year, my mum wanted to go for Japanese buffet so we chose to go to Kampachi at the Equitorial Hotel, KL. Overall, I didn't really enjoy myself too much.... Don't get me wrong - the food was pretty good for a buffet (both variety and taste-wise) but it was a total warzone!
There were HORDES of people.
And not just normal people, but hordes of typical thick skinned kiasu Chinese ah bengs and ah lians who had no qualms in emptying out the entire content of the buffet tray onto their plates.
(Some of those stacks were amazing! Totally gravity defying!)
The ones who weren't as skillful in stacking even had the audacity to fill up their plates, hand it to their equally thick skinned family member/ friend who happened to be passing by and help themselves to more food.
At least my mum enjoyed herself.
(We made sure she didn't have to go out to battle for food - me, P and my dad went to get the food and served her the whole time there)
She also really liked the present I gave her...
(Unfortunately it cost about 1/5 of my monthly wages but hey, it's worth it for my mummy dearest.... )
BTW, here's a useful tip when dining at Alexis Ampang: Never arrive late for dinner.
Well, they have a few very strict rules:
1) Only people who are going to have dinner can book tables.
2) They will release your table if you don't come within 15 minutes of your booking
3) Any members of your table who arrive at 9.01 pm onwards will be charged RM25 cover charge, even if they only came there to eat and have no interest whatsoever in watching the live band/ international singer that starts at 10.30pm.
So, there - keep all that in mind if you don't want to end up paying cover charge just to eat dinner at Alexis.
I think that's all for now...
