Heavenly High-Tea @ Palace of the Golden Horses Review

Wanting a quiet time with your partner over the weekends and don't know where to go? How many times have we fall in the situation where we feel the malls are too packed on weekends and just getting a place to park your car is a pain in the rear while cinema good seats are always filled? All you want is some alone time with your partner and it's so hard right? Nope. You should try the Grand Salon Lobby Lounge's Heavenly High-Tea at the Palace of the Golden Horses

The centerpiece of rotating Koi-Horses, one of the legends of Palace adorns the Lobby lounge

With a seating capacity of 72, you could have your small group private lunch arrangement here too.

Back to the Hi Tea selection. Palace offers 3 selections of Hi Tea from RM65 nett onwards, namely the English Hi Tea Set as above priced at RM112 nett per stand for 2 person served with coffee or tea with the option of free flow of chilled juice at RM115 nett or with a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte Brut at RM895 nett.

Assorted afternoon tea pastries, tarts and cakes

Freshly baked raisin orange and plain scones served with Devonshire cream and Strawberry preserve

My personal favorite from top clockwise order:
- Cucumber sandwich with cream cheese, pickles & chives on caraway seeds bread.
- Lobster & dill sandwich with grain mustard mayo on mixed grain bread
- Scottish smoked salmon sandwich with lemon butter on rye bread

Next up we have the Malaysian Hi Tea selection at RM65 nett per stand for 2 person served with coffee or tea with the option of free flow of chilled juice at RM 68 nett or with a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte Brut at RM850 nett.

The Malaysian Hi Tea set is unique as it features our local kuihs such as Kek Lapis, Seri Muka, Yam Cake and Kuih Ketayap

On the other plate is the Nasi Lemak Burger, Chicken Satay Open Faced served with satay sauce!

Punjabi Samosa, Mini Apam Balik, Ipoh Heong Peah(Biscuit with Maltose fillings) and mini chicken Char Siew Pau.

As they always say, I leave the best for the last. Why? Cos it's called Healthy Hi Tea stand priced at only RM65 nett per stand for 2 person served with coffee or tea with the option of free flow of chilled juice at RM 68 nett or with a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte Brut at RM850 nett. You know when people say healthy doesn't rhyme with delicious, I beg to differ in this case. Why? Let me introduce the food then you would know.

From top in clockwise order:
- Avocado Masher with sesame, sunflower seeds & coriander. Coming from a person who doesn't eat avocado, this is really an eye opener on how differently this could taste. A definitely must try.
- Deep fried yam puff with fresh mushroom. Another must try for all yam and mushroom lovers!
- Steamed Cassava with honey. Not a fan of non fried cassava but this taste extremely good like mashed sweet potatoes.

Clockwise from top right:
- Banana, Peanut butter and almond shooter. On first glance it looks like pastry at the bottom but it's actually banana and the combination is real flavorful in the mouth
- Mini Cashew nut tart
- Rasberry and Vanilla custard choux bun. If the fruity burst from the raspberry ain't enough, the vanilla custard will definitely tingle your senses.

Clockwise from top right:
Spinach & Alfafa sprouts on charcoal toast
Green peas, fresh mint & Parmesan crostini,
Endive spears with garbanzo salsa

We even have a special presentation from the chef on how the Avocado masher was made

Fresh and loving each bite of it.

G Hotel Penang Taste Cafe Review

Having a headache thinking what to cook, which dishes to cook for which relative, where to eat this coming Chinese New Year when you get back to your hometown in Penang? Think no more. Why go through all the hassle, pain of buying and getting ingredients from the ever packed, no parking market?


Just bring your family out for buffet at Taste Cafe G Hotel Penang. Afterall the Chinese New Year dinner is about reunion dinner. You could save the time from all the peanut butter strawberry traffic jam of Penang and the cooking time and instead spend quality time while enjoying a hassle free Lunch and/or dinner over at the cafe.


The health conscious relatives could start off with the cold platter, salads or keep themselves busy over at the salad bar.


With the variety of food, even the pickiest kid in the family would find something he/she would love to have at the cafe. Their best stop is the grill station which serves freshly grilled juicy meats cut on the spot by the chef and topped with a spoon of the sauce of the day. Trust me it's heaven for meat eaters. You know they say CNY should eat big fish, big meat right? =)


From Western to Local cuisines, it's definitely a good fusion to satisfy the young and older relatives.


Then comes the dessert, cakes and assorted pastries. If there's anything you should not miss, it's the variety of cakes and desserts made by their award winning chef. Trust me when I say I willed up my extra dessert tummy with all these good cakes and they are still never enough.


If I could, I would have done this to the cakes already. But seriously, it's a buffet, you can have as many servings your stomach could fill.


 What are the promotions they are having for this Chinese New Year? CNY Reunion Dinner is priced at RM178/pax at Taste Cafe and RM168/pax at Spoon G Hotel Kelawai. Brunch on first and second day of CNY at Taste Cafe is priced at RM150/pax while dinner is priced at RM178 for Taste Cafe and RM168 at Spoon.

You could also add on the optional Yee Sang for 2 at RM35 from 15 Jan to 15 Feb. P.s. Add on RM99/pax for free flow of house beer or wine (Trust me the selection of beer available is vast enough).

You also get 50% discount for kids aged 6 to 12 years old and all price are nett and inclusive of 6% GST.


Too busy during CNY and visiting relatives? You could go on other days too. The daily International buffet is priced at RM95/pax and International Buffet Dinner from Sunday to Thursday is priced at RM120/pax while my personal favourite Lava Stone Seafood BBQ Buffet Dinner on Fridays and Saturdays is priced at RM155/pax. Kids below 6 eats for free, 6 to 12 years old gets 50% discount. Senior citizens of 60 years old and above is RM58/pax for brunch, RM70/pax for Sunday to Thursday's dinner and RM80/pax for Fri and Saturday's dinner. You could add on RM65/pax for free flow of house beer or wine.

That's not all, Did I mention that they are having a promotion for BUY 2 FREE 1 for Buffet Lunch and Dinner? T&C applies.

Call +604-2380000 or email g4u@ghotel.com.my for reservations and more details. You could also drop by their website at http://ghotel.com.my/


The visit will not be complete without a selfie with their ever changing and festive logo.


Not enough of food pics to convince you yet? Let me share more mouth watering dishes. I don't know about you, but I do get hungry even I am writing back on my experience here.


The prawn is always synonymous with laughter during the CNY. Well, fried juicy fresh prawns works for me even without the meaning =)




Light Starters, Finger foods and Dim Sum


Salad bar with various sauces to choose from





 Cakes, cakes and more cakes.. Really.. One could never get enough of cakes from G Hotel. It's like their signature. Every bite makes you yearn for more.. I somehow secretly wish they do delivery to KL. Right now, I have to wait patiently till I return to Penang again.

VR Lab - Experience the Virtual Reality with Video!

Ever thought of seeing something as real as it could get but it's not true? A reality where you could experience visually a different world or even build something new such as a Christmas tree? Or a place you could explore earth on the other side of the globe, visit the places you have always wanted to be at?


Introducing VR lab. A one stop solution to get away from current reality


They are the first to provide a room scale virtual technology experience in the country.


Priced at an affordable range, they also have branches in SS15, Bandar Sunway, Menjalara Kepong and are opening more branches in places like Kota Damansara, Wangsa Maju and Publika


Just wanna try out before playing whole thing? Try walking the plank..


Green room is something new.. You get yourself into the video and save a copy of it =)




Ok enough of those.. How did they make it possible? They are using the HTC Vive in all the rooms for the best experience.


Trust me when I say the 360 view is marvelous.


And private rooms? That's pure comfort and safety for yourself without being disturbed by others


No one will take selfies while you are playing unless you have friends like us..


Hungry after a couple of hours of VR? Their snack corner price is definitely a convenient and price is at an affordable price. I find most items cheaper then the nearby 7-eleven =)


So how was the experience? Watch this video.
