A Lazy Weekend - Dining In

It was sure nice getting room service and not cooking! Mommy says Yeay! LOL

And one of the highlights of staying in a hotel. Not the hotel buffet but having the luxury of eating dinner in the comfort of our own room. I like... ^^ Raimie sure loves it too!
Raimie and Zaini had a huge BBQ burger for dinner.
and I, alarmed at my weight gain despite the workout I've done; tried to be a tad healthy by ordering a Caesar salad with grilled tuna and a spicy vegetable stew. But because of doing nothing for two days, the few kgs that I've lost earlier in the week went packing back in. Sob sob.
It's not all luxury dining though. For lunch on Sunday, we went out to a nearby Pasar Tani (farmers' market) and bought Nasi Ambeng for lunch. Eating them while sitting at the balcony of our hotel room after a nice swim at the pool was really awesome.

  7. How come you are gaining weight despite working out? Must be either you ate more than usual or your metabolic rate had slowed down.

  13. Usually hotels always give plenty of food to its customers. But did you wait long for the food to arrive at your room?

  14. @levian,
    how true. ^^

    But I should be back on the treadmill this weekend. No more lazy days! XD

  15. @Willie,
    The food arrives less than 30 minutes after I made my call to order. That's what I like about hotels with less rooms compared to those with 900 or so rooms. :)

  19. @Alice,
    It's a Jawa dish. You have chicken (masak merah/kicap), rice, coconut sambal, fried beehoon/mee, tempe & salted fish in one dish. If in a kenduri, this dish will be served on a "dulang"/tray and be eaten shared amongst the guest.
