E & O Hotel, Sarkies – Christmas Feast

Previously during the Ramadan period, I blogged about Sarkies at E & O Hotel on their specialized buffet for Buka Puasa. If I were given one sentence to describe Sarkies, all I would say is “The most affordable place in town for buffet with the most varieties in a pleasant ambience.”


The year 2014 is coming to an end, it is time for the menu to be revised to coincide with this festive season. Due to popular demand, E & O Hotel, Sarkies is back with its International Buffet dinner.


The International Buffet Dinner at Sarkies Annex Buffet starts from 19th November 2014.

International Buffet Dinner, Sunday to Thursday, 7pm-10.30pm.
RM110++ (Adult)
RM48++ (Child)
Add RM38++ for free flow or beer, wine and fruit punch

On Friday and Saturday, there will be live performance by Los Cantores with free flow of wine, beer and refreshing beverage by default (RM148++ for adult and RM65++ for child). If you have AMEX (American Express) card, you will be entitled to 20% discount or LIKE E&O Facebook page and you will immediately receive a 20% discount coupon.


Something great about this international buffet is there are plenty of fresh seafood.

One of the highlights is the Alaskan King Crab, which could hardly be found elsewhere.


You will also find some baby lobsters on the seafood counter.


Dozens of fresh oyster waiting to be served.


The same goes to the mussels.


Also the oysters….. slurp!


As for the dessert, it definitely won’t be a disappointment for those who have a sweet tooth.


Fresh fruits such as strawberries and grapes are also available.


My assorted and rich dinner.


Besides the great food available at Sarkies, there are also some Christmas Goodies available for sale at Sarkies Bakery Counter Area.


The bakery chefs were proudly showing off their creations.


Ginger Bread Man-5 pieces per packet


The cakes on the menu include rich Dundee Cake, Chocolate Truffle Cake, Mont Blanc Cake, Hazelnut Crunchy Cake and Cherry-Raspberry Cake. All the cakes were delightful with an emphasis on Christmas decoration.





There is also the ginger bread house. Surrounded by snowmen and topped with mini santa clauses and a white star. The ginger bread house is priced at RM60.00++.


The traditional Yule Log cake comes in delectable flavours.


Beside the bakeries, there are also roasted specialities such as Roast Prime Rib of Beef with mixed herb juice and the quintessential Whole Roast Turkey with wild rice stuffing and giblet gravy. A minimum order time frame of three days is needed prior to pick up and they are available for delivery with a RM50 surcharge.



Please call 04-2222000 extension 3175 to order.


Overall, this place serves great varieties of food and the price is definitely value for money. The quality of the food is very good too. Parking here is not a problem as there is a multi-level carpark just next to the hotel.

Japanese Restaurant Sushi Kappo Miyasaka, Pulau Tikus – Authentic Yet Affordable Japanese Food

There are a lot of Japanese restaurants in Penang which are very famous and popular, with just a stone’s throw you definitely will find at least one Japanese restaurant. However, if you are talking about authentic, reasonable yet not too crowded, there is only a handful of them. The authenticity of Japanese food is not judged by others but the Japanese’s customers themselves. It is like a Penangite knows which stall serves the best Penang Laksa. The restaurant that I have discovered to have a cosy ambience with authentic and reasonable Japanese food is Sushi Kappo Miyasaka.


The location of the restaurant is not difficult to find, the only problem is on the one-way traffic system which will take you to a big turning. For those that come from Penang Bridge, you will need to drive through Jalan Masjid. You will have to pass by Jalan Utama. At this road on your right junction, look for Jalan Brown and turn into it. Keep driving until you  reach a T-junction then follow the one way street which is to your right. Keep driving for another 200 meters and look on your right where you can see Maybank. Restaurant Sushi Kappo Miyasaka is just a few doors away.

Boosting Energy Level and Complexion with Complexion-6

There is a price to pay to be a food/event blogger especially if you still have a full-time job – skin problems, tiredness, tight schedules, meeting deadlines etc. You may ask why is that so? The answer is simple, on skin problems I always eat all kinds of food which are new to me and I am frequently exposed to oily food which caused my skin to turn bad. Tiredness due to my full-time job and having to juggle full-time job, blogging, events, family, etc is tiring. There is a long list of action items waiting for me to do and with my tight schedules, it is challenging to meet deadlines and by end of each day, I felt a little lethargic.

Recently, I heard my friend recommended Complexion-6 which will help to solve most of my problems above. At first, I wasn’t so sure about this until I started to look up for more information on the internet. Complexion-6 is a multivitamin solution which not only helps to improve skin complexion but also helps to rejuvenate so that one could feel refreshed and energized.

Coincidently, I know someone who is carrying this product. I contacted her and made an appointment together with my friend. On that day, she brought a box which contains small bottles of vitamin solution. The vitamins are not to be consumed orally. Instead, it will be transferred into the body via an intravenous (IV) drip. It sounds new to me at the beginning, but after a detailed explanation and affirmation from my friend, I decided to leave my fate to her to do the magic.


The price range is RM980 to RM1200 for the product itself, excluding the price of the injection service. Each box contains 4 times of treatment. To enjoy the full course, you will need 2 boxes in total. After each course, it is recommended to maintain every 2-3 weeks once.

Baa Baa Black Sheep Cafe, Tanjung Bungah – Baa For Better Food and Coffee

Baa baa black sheep have you any wool… Does this lyric remind you of our childhood nursery rhyme? No doubt this nursery rhyme has already been implanted in our memories since we were little kids. Now after we’ve grown up, we sing this to our kids almost every day too. However, today the focus is not about the song, but it is more about the title of this song that has been used as the name of a cafe.


The main entrance of Baa Baa Black Sheep is at the main road of Jalan Tanjung Bungah. If you are driving from town you will drive through Gurney Drive towards Jalan Tanjung Tokong, keep driving for about 3km and you will be arriving at Jalan Tanjung Bungah. Watch out on your left where you will see a lot of shop lots and one of the notable ones is Sri Ananda Bahwan restaurant. You will find Baa Baa Black Sheep is just a few doors away from it.
