  1. RM 108++ for a meal! Sounds like this is going to be a great feast :D

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Nice to know you through Jessie-cooking moments. Now I'm your latest Twitter and blogger follower :D

    I'm happy to have you participating Cook like a Star event but to be fair to all participants, I would prefer all submissions to this blog-hop being published within the month of July. Any any older posts should not be not accepted. Hope that this arrangement is ok for you :D

    1. Hi Zoe, thanks for the follow. I have also added you onto my blogroll. :)

      I will look through Jamie's recipes this weekend and try something new for "cook like a star" :)

  2. Tred this buffet this week. The salad section is always impressive at Essence.

  3. I've never been to any of the restaurants at Sheraton. Is there one particular restaurant that I should really give it a try?

    1. I would recommend Celestial Court for its dim sum. It is the best non-halal one we've tried this year.

    2. You can read about Celestial Court here and here:
