ANYWAY...... last sunday (4/5/08), highly upon MY request and also the fact that mama wanted to have a fancy meal before her b'day travel, the whole family ++ pott and sha, went to the chinese resto in CORUS hotel, MING PALACE.
it's been years (literally) since i last ate dimsum and to find HALAL dimsum is so damn hard! so, into the realms of the WWW i went in search of halal dimsum place to satisfy my craving. i found a few and we decided to go to CORUS hotel. why CORUS you ask? simple. because at the same day, lucky lucky us, there was a warehouse sale for all those top brands in the UK. we actually had a great exercise after the meal : IMPULSIVE SHOPPING!! although..... i didn't get the white blouse that i wanted because mama thought i took it for her and she didn't want it (how come la she think lidis? i tried it on leyy... obviously it was meant for me and my size....??). i also was looking for the RACERBACK BUTTON-UP VEST that i was hunting for but couldn't find it either. nevertheless, we bought loads of stuffs and it was uber FUN!!
why la i am trailing off?? was supposed to be tokking abt food... haiiissshhh....
the setting was very urrmmmmm.... how do i say this.... CHINESE. the waiters and waitresses are chinese and the patrons are....CHINESE. we were the only MALAYS there at that moment. but i did notice one of the waiter to be a malay guy and boy, he is CUTE!! eyecandy.... aaaahhhh.... heheheheh
we came with our stomach obviously very empty so that we could top it up with good food. we weren't disappointed because the food was very the very delish!! but word of caution tho, the service was slow as the dimsums did not come in a trolley that they push around. they have a menu, you tell them which number, then they go and steam it or reheat it up for you. so, obviously, for those who are impatient or extremely hungry... don't come here la.
some of the dimsum that we had. there are loads more pix actually but the blahdy net is testing me. kenot upload leyy.... just wait la horr until i upload them.
i seriously love the beef brisket and the imperial soup that i had. i tot the soup was RM7.80 per bowl (tiny miniscule bowl). sekali sekali after having the soup i saw the price was RM17.80!! ayarrkkksss!!! sorry ma... heheheh but it was worth it. mmg ho chiak!!
after the meal: semua happy sebab perut kenyang!! yah took this pic. you shud see her with her camera la. super canggih weyy!!! and the way she held the camera, oh so tender. bagai menatang minyak yang penuh!!! ahaks!
the bill came up to RM220, which is considered cheap as we had alot of dimsum and the ala-carte and some more add-ons. plus, this place is having a 30% discount so you guys should have a visit la. i don't reli know till when the discount thingy is going on but as for the WAREHOUSE sale that i was tokking abt earlier.... habis sudah.... kekekekekek
next time, MAS and i nak try dimsum kat the other places that i found. kan MAS kan? jgn bekout lak :P
thanks ma for the LOVELY day!! *love*
