Buffet-ing

Written by Myhorng. 6 comments Posted in: Humor, Living, Observed


Buffet, this term is no stranger to basically everyone who is able to grab their own food. However, how many of you know buffet can actually put into 4 different types?

Random Buffet Picture

One

Take the things you want from the line, stall etc and get to pay end of the day base on each items you took. – Our daily economy rice considers one of them.

Two

Eat as much as you can type after an amount of money paid. – The type we usually referring to for “buffet”.

Three

Almost like the “one” up there but it normally pay base on the weight of stuff you took, usually salad bar etc. – couldn’t think of example in Malaysia, maybe the Pizza Hut Salad consider the nearest pictorial example.

Four

The combination of self-service and a serving provide, meaning you queue with container plate and a servant will serve you. Normally come across when we attend some conference, meeting where we do not pay for the actual food and food is barely enough for each of us. – Prisoner is having this kind of buffet meal every day, how nice right?

Random Buffet Picture

I used to fancy buffet meal due to the selection of food present and you got to eat as much as you can. We tried to ingest the most expensive food serve a lot a lot a lot to make worth of the price we paid. Ended up, we were all too full to actually move our ass off the chair.

However, I don’t really eat that much even in buffet meal. Ok ok, you might say I’m old now and yeah I am older than yesterday I admit. I tend to enjoy the food more now days rather than eat for the price paid. I rather use the amount of money pay for some superior buffet meal like in Jogoya, Tenji for some nice ala cart order. Of course there are some cheaper selection out there like MoMo, quite OK, Shogun, never find it good. Still, for quality of food, normal price buffet hardly could up to the par that I’m expecting in term of “really good food”. I still go there anyway, popularization it is. In any event, buffet still is a very good choice when hunting for a dinning place for a crowd of people where you do not need to care what this person eat and that person don’t kind of thing.

Another strong reason that you shouldn’t be eating like there’s will be no tomorrow is like this incident that a friend of mine told me. And the whole post is actually for this part only.

She was in Tenji celebrating her friend’s hen night. As usual, you eat talk eat talk eat talk until you couldn’t really move and one of her friend told her the experience she had in Jogoya. An uncle who was sitting just right beside her table was suddenly pengsan (fainted) and fell to the floor. Everyone was shock and start to kaypochi (busy body) abit and found out that this uncle, never grown up along with his age. He pengsan because been eating toooo bloody much and could not breathe. Could you imagine that? This is the best joke I heard so far for 2009. Stupid uncle. So, please don’t simply consume the food like rubbish trucks ya.
