After hearing many stories from friends about how value for money it is, we finally got to check out Yuen Steamboat Buffet Restaurant in Sunway Mentari. We arrived early to avoid the throng of weekenders out for dinner, but the place was already bustling at 6pm!

True to the buffet style, you pick whatever you want to have onto a plate, bring it to your own table and cook it. There are lots of choices (especially seafood), and even desserts like fruits, kuih and Ice Cream!

Mushrooms, fish fllet, dumplings, hotdogs, beancurds, etc.

Choose between spicy or regular broth, or try both (one at each side of the pot!). We opted for the normal since dad had a sore throat.

Worms? lol. They’re a type of shellfish, but mum says they look like bamboo slugs. Ah, whatever. As long as they’re yummy :D

Veggies.

The BBQ Marmite sauce chicken wings were snapped up like hotcakes each time the waiter came out with a new batch from the kitchen. Guests were really like hantu lapar man. We asked bro to help us take some but he was like a tortoise, so we only ended up with a few pieces :( There were people who scooped the wings up onto their plates like a spatula wtf.

If you can’t finish eating it, the restaurant will ask you to pay extra for the unfinished food. So don’t be so wai sek okay?

I borrowed two books from the library last Friday. Mabel is going crazy over Jeffrey Archer books. Maybe I should pick one up to read sometime. Anyway these are the books I borrowed. The House of the Eagle is narrated by Thoth, the ibis-headed God, about the rise and fall of the Ptolemy family. Ptolemy was a Greek soldier who became a Pharoah. Just started on this one ^^

The other book is Passing Under Heaven by Justin Hill. It’s about the life of a poor orphan girl who became a concubine at the age of 13, during the Tang Dynasty of China. I don’t really like the story because the protagonist Huilan (Lily) is, to me, rather unhinged. She is so jealous of the other concubines that she does all sort of vengeful things to get back at them, ultimately leading to her execution. Based on a true story, Huilan wrote many poems during her day and was considered one of the most prominent female poets of the Tang dynasty.
