Birthday Dinner

A lovely day is almost coming to an end, and guess where did we go for dinner?
Hope you are not getting bored of the birthday posts:p
For a lovely evening meal, he brought me to the most expensive hotel in Penang; the newly renovated Rasa Sayang Hotel.

We went to Spice Market for an exciting International Buffet which seemed to have attracted lots of diners.
We arrived there at about 6.45pm and there was already a large crowd.

Priced at RM192 for 2 pax,there is really a wide array of choices; from simple salads to rojak, satay to even Chinese noodles, Indian cuisine, Japanese sushi and sashimi to exclusive seafood like lobsters, crab, fresh prawns and fish. One of the widest spread of food I have seen so far....and I enjoyed myself thoroughly there:)
But really, tough time selecting what to eat, even for PickyEater!!!:D
