I’ve been meaning to post about this, but I wanted to wait for the pictures, which Angel took forever to upload! Ahem…
Anyway, before I begin, may I give my utmost thanks to Crazyasuka for giving me 400+ hits by surfing through my archives! That was a nice spike after the usual 100+ hits lately, so thanks for the smile at my face when looking at my blog stats! 😀
Right, now to the trip I was and still am excited for. A few weeks back – the day after Dessert and Dinner’s day out actually – I treated Angel, Angel’s relative and Sesat to a buffet at some hotel in the heart of Kuala Lumpur as celebration of my first paycheck. It’s not as expensive as buffets would usually cost because my dad bought some buffet vouchers really cheap so I just got them off him. 😛
Here are some pictures of the food we had.
My plate of pasta. I was so greedy I took all three types of sauces – marinara, bolognaise and carbonara – and it tasted a bit weird ‘cos they mixed, but overall it was alright. I preferred the chicken strips by the side though. 😆
Self-made ais kacang – this was Sesat’s or Angel’s, I think, ‘cos mine didn’t have ice cream on it. It may not look very appetising but it’s the most delicious local dessert, in my opinion.
Ooh, this was one of my favourite dishes at the buffet. The pancakes were palm-sized, and I drizzled it with honey and maple syrup and those nutty/sesame spinkles and topped it off with vanilla and chocolate ice cream. SCRUMPTIOUS!
We had a lot more food than that, of course, except that we keep forgetting to take pictures of them and tucked right in before remembering that we forgot to take a picture! 😳
We spent about 3 hours at the buffet. It was mid-afternoon by then, and it seemed such a waste to go home just like that, so we decided after a while that we’d go to Petrosains at Suria KLCC. I’ve said it before in my other KL trip and I’ll say it again, don’t get into a taxi if the driver refuses to use the meter! There was one who wanted to charge the four of us RM10 for the trip, but I refused on principle, even though technically it’ll only be RM2.50 per person. When we found a taxi whose driver agreed to use the meter, the ride only cost RM7. Not much of a difference, but the point is that we shouldn’t have to fork out RM3 more at the driver’s whim and fancy!

Petrosains is an interactive, family-friendly science exploration centre funded by Petronas, the national supplier of petroleum and natural gas in Malaysia. This is one of the cheapest and most enjoyable source of entertainment for anyone, even if you flunked Science. It will take you at least 3 hours to enjoy the entire experience, as the centre is divided into many sections – space, F1, petroleum, dinosaurs, etc. Among the highlights of the centre are the virtual helicopter ride, the F1 simulator, the dinosaur exhibition, and the live science experiments during peak hours.
Here are some of the pictures we managed to take, which we’re actually not allowed to! 😛
Look at the last thumbnail – that’s an adult-sized slide. See what I mean when I say family-friendly? I went on it twice! 😀 They give you sack-like cloths to maximise the experience. I felt as if I was sliding down Moon Face’s slide up at the Faraway Tree! (Enid Blyton, anyone?)
After racing through the science centre (we only had three hours before the centre closed), we watched Mamma Mia at the cinemas. We snuck kebabs into the cinema (outside food not allowed). I came home at 11pm that day, tired but happy!
