Every time when we attend training, my brother and I like to exchange information about the buffet. The food at such and such a place is good or the buffet at such and such a place is just like chap fan.
Not too long ago I attended this one.
We have to keep abreast with accounting standards which seem to be changing so fast all the time. I miss the good old says when it was more fun to be an accountant.
But let's talk about the more interesting and relatable topic - food!
Most of the time, the cakes at these big hotels are not that great. I make better banana cake.
The selections at the buffet were just so so.
The only thing outstanding were the oysters!
Second round of oysters.
Desserts were just OK. I have to taste each one heh..heh...
On the second day of the seminar, the food was worse. And no oysters. Bah!
So I just snapped my desserts.
On the first day of the training, it rained cats and dogs in the evening.
I have not been to this part of town for ages!
When it rains, there is always traffic jam.
Oh, I remember Globe Silk Store!
It would be nice to take a walk on a good day for some look see look see.
So many cars!
Crawling .... crawling ....
I left the venue at 5:00 pm and reached home close to 8:00pm. So tired.
Not that I enjoy this one but this is the accountant's equivalent (sort of) of Milan Fashion Week. If you are a fashion designer and you did not attend Milan Fashion Week, you are out.
Over eight hundred people attended.
I hate crowds. Tea break was chaotic.
There were some inconsiderate participants who went ahead and chit chatted among themselves.
Lunch? I think they got the trainees at Berjaya cooking school to whip up a feast. It was so bad I did not take any photos.
The only consolation was that desserts were not bad at all.
That's a lot of desserts because I hardly ate anything for the mains.
It was so nice that I went for a second helping.
And finally from my last training for the year. Not at a big hotel. Food prepared by a local caterer. Better tasting than the ones from the hotels.
This was tea break - kuay teow goreng (with some yum yum sambal), bingka labu (notice that I chose the burnt parts which are the best tasting) and karipap. So good!
And this was lunch - rice, ikan goreng (I took lots of sambal belacan), udang goreng kunyit, kari ayam, sayur campur and ulam. Sedap!
