So much for my Ramadan moderation....

I have one big vice when it comes to Ramadan. It's the hotel Ramadan buffet.

I know the fasting month is supposed to re-instill the meaning of spiritual cleansing and material moderation in me but I have always surrendered to the "sin" of gluttony when it comes to Ramadan buffet.

So, a colleague of mine got us a booking to a fairly new small place called King's Hotel near the highway. Offering only a mere MYR18 nett per pax for a seat, it was fairly cheap. It was a full-fledged buffet with main courses, barbecues, free-flowing drinks, salads bar, pastry/dessert bar and ice-creams. So, that's a real value for money.

My friends were confident they could demolish everything here.

What I had that evening, fully thinking of 'gluttony' and at the same time moderation in mind.

The grilled stuff. Roast chicken and satay among others. They had squids and fish wraps too.

My FAILED snow ice!


Those who know me should know the reason for this one. I can't resist pastries and baked goods.

Now, my friends took all these. At least I demolished what I took.

There's nothing worst to make you feel guilty in Ramadan than untouched food being thrown away just because some greedy tummies thought it belonged to them.

Despite that, I'm already planning another one at another small hotel in the city.......the Naza Hotel.

So much for my Ramadan moderation, huh?


  1. Well, if you're asking for pasta and French soup, of course no lah. But I consider the cakes and puddings as Western and the grilled chicken as Western as well. They did have different dressings and sauces but my stomach couldn't take all. Besides, somehow, the Malaysian in me went for the budu and cincalok that day....ha..ha..

  2. This buffet spread is incredible. It's making me giddy with longing & I don't even fast! I love all those kueh-kueh! I am a Chinese living in Tokyo & has a very good friend living in KL.
