Most of my colleagues decided to head to Kitchen Art Brasserie after work, or they didn't mind waiting till the time we were suppose to meet. I on the other hand returned home, showered and by the time I arrive, everyone had already gathered. God knows why so early, colleagues sometimes can get over excited for no apparent reason. As it is, they can slyly back stab you when you least expect, when its such an occasion, they will definitely bulldoze towards securing a permanent place in the good books of the management so that they can be rewarded with a hearty bonus and increment. Fat hopes, maybe it does work, I really don't care, I arrived at the time we were suppose to.
We sat around, the guest of honour is yet to show up, of course, hunger was killing everyone softly, yet, you know how pretentious colleagues can be? Thank god, within the next 20 minutes, boss arrived, don't know if he was caught off guard over this farewell gathering, we grinned, speech by boss and then, food moment. Ample choices, sure, salads, appetizers, soups, cold cuts, bread, cheese and our Malaysian local items, eat till you drop concept, but really, not really too far from the rest of the hotel buffets. Or maybe, Kitchen Art Brasserie is far behind.
Those colleagues I was seated with praised the nasi ayam/chicken rice, they also loved some of the local savory dishes, the grilled meat and pasta/spaghetti from the outside food station. Outside meaning, outside the dining area. Lured by how sensationally they described the grilled meat, I picked up the grilled fish and some sambal/dips to go with it. Spicy sambal of course, forever, will be a winner for this typical Malaysian, I actually enjoyed the fish too.
