In just less than an hour time, it would be a brand new year. Year 2015! New year, new resolution as well! Avoiding buffets has always been in my resolution list for the past few years and it had never succeed. Not even close since I had buffets countless times within a single year. This time, I dared not add that statement to the list.
Anyway, it is a #throwback post of what I ate this Christmas with my family! Christmas itself acts as a yearly family gathering as well as to indulge in a feast. I know that festive seasons are when buffets would take the advantage to hike up their prices, at the same time adding on a couple of delicacies such as the turkey, minced meat pies, panettone and stolen. We still went for Carlton Hotel’s buffet, in the name of the meaning ‘gathering’. Buffet selections usually changes from time to time, therefore nowadays I seldom touch on them. I still have a huge list of buffets which I have visited on the side link of my blog though.
Christmas always comes with gingerbread, like they were meant to be a package. Never did I expect to see a really huge gingerbread house covered in icing (as snow) and decorated with colourful m&ms.
Not surprised at all to find a fat looking turkey under the spotlight (heating lamp) too. It definitely was tender and juicy!
On and off while I ate, I took a couple of eating selfies just for fun. Chilling a bit with supposing a bowl of caeser salad. Not quite my liking since the common bowl used for self making salad was already polluted by all sorts of different salad dressing done before me. It just tasted aaaarrggg… Many buffets also has this salad station with the same problem too.
After consuming a considerable amount of food, walking around to snap selfies with the gingerbread showpieces would give my stomach a chance to relax a little.
Decided to zoom in a bit into the little santas!
Cute little bear goes out to play!
What is Christmas without logcakes? This log was sinfully rich and chocolaty that made me really addicted to it. A couple of other desserts such as a konnyaku jelly, mango pudding and some other mousse cakes were also transformed into logs as well. However, nothing could beat this one!
The red velvet with cream cheese frosting was another favourite of mine. Not too sweet…
Another whole chocolate cake! I felt that having the whole cake out on the buffet spread felt more ‘sincere’ to us paying costumers since we paid a higher price during the festive period. Those petite blocks were just not for me.
Just spamming on every single desserts available. The durian pengat was really popular that day but too much flesh for my liking.
The tea selection were sadly from Lipton, which I considered an inferior quality brand. I could have drank a few cups if it were from TWG!
After a long non-stop feasting cum selfie session, our dinner finally ended with us having a bloated stomach. A mandatory shot with the yearly setup Christmas tree as backdrop!
Hoping that year 2015 would be a better one for all of us!
