I miss school holidays. Not because holidays are rare to me ever since I plunged myself into ACCA; but because at that time, the holidays fell on the same dates (parents would take leave according to our holidays) and we could plan holidays and family outings together easier back then. Oh I miss those days...these days, with most of us 'children' all grown up and in college, our holidays are scattered around the calender.
This time round, my parents came down to Klang for the weekend and we marked the end of the school holidays (which we had no part of) with a family steamboat buffet. We went to 88 BBQ Steamboat Buffet Restaurant located in the Bukit Tinggi area. Their concept is similiar to the 2+1 Steamboat in Ipoh. The price is similiar too. RM23.80nett for adults, RM18.80nett for students and RM8.80nett for children if my memory serves me right. A tip though : don't sit inside the restaurant. I'll tell you why later on.
Anyway, we wasted no time in getting our dinner. Yoong and I were snapping pictures like mad. So some of the pictures are from her btw. The mission for the night was to fill this up with FOOD!!!:-I like how they wrapped up the hotplate with foil. Much more hygienic than the one in 2+1. Also they had a genius way of allocating the butter which is used for the hot plate. They wrap it up in plastics and all you have to do is poke a hole in it and squeeze:-
They actually had an aquarium with live prawns swimming about. Benjamin made it his special mission to bring jumping prawns back to our table for sacrifice into the hotpot:-
He's got a knack of catching those swimming creatures!! Yoong and I asked him to stop after a few because it was kinda morbid to watch your food being boiled alive. T.T
I was too busy eating and only snapped a few pictures of the soupy stuff:
Oh remember I was going to tell you why not to sit inside the shop?? Well it's because every table has their own barbeque stands. The smoke rising from this things were extreme:-
And we took a load of skewered prawns for grilling too. Not the live ones caught from the aquarium but ready skewered. It was like a prawn fest. We took so much and were so afraid that we couldn't finish but all of it disappeared so fast!!!
