  1. Wow, what a spread, such a huge assortment of dishes! If I sat in one of these, even if I only taste a spoonful of each, I could not walk back to the car. Bukan alang2 ohh... :D

    1. Yaaaaa, this is not the full spread yet, too many food to snap hehe. Yeah, I think I usually pick the ones I wanted to eat first then gradually go to trying anything I can, and sit longer till I can walk back to my car hahah. Buffet problems.

  2. It looks very nice and the food looks delicious!
