Celebrating Her Royal Highness's Birthday

waiting for HRH...
Bernard da Joker helped us to booked a nice table @ Peppino
weeks ago...
fr Mr. Jimmy-Fixed-It
whom also prepared us a nice yummy b-day cake
and waived our corkage.
Peppino had a renovation and changed its concept
from venetian to simply Italian...
with painted pics of olive trees on its wall
and 2 floor to ceiling wine cellars.
most importantly, we checked its glasses..
hmmm right glasses for our wines.
anyway we had doesn't matter much.
but it was a good bordeaux.
Roger Dubois
clock is ticking...tick tock tick tock...
the sun sets pretty early in Sabah,
they even berbuka puasa an hour ealier...
at 6.14pm.
Chef Rosario Seminatore fr Turin, Italy.
with 25 years of experience fr all around the world,
he joined Shangri-la in May this year.

he had revamped the whole menu and the whole place..
I guess he must be a confucius....
coz he made us so confused with his "off the menu" selections....

"I can make this for you........I have this today.............try my fish"
Bernard da Joker pouting at me...
hey u are not me...stop pouting like me!!!!
not on its menu.....Tasmanian Oysters
oysters must alwiz go with champagne...
they only have Dom Perignon with no vintage???????
anyway Smart JS brought this Krug 95
Mr. Jimmy-Fixed-it the restaurant manager was so surprised.
carpaccio of beef with shaved parmesan
I had this which was on its menu and I didn't like it....
lobster terrine with capsicum sauce????
oven baked avocado with shrimps and porcini mushrooms
this was yummy and rich
fresh tomatoes with mozarella cheese salad with AVOCADO and pesto sauce
but fat fat fat fat fat fat fat

off topic:
I came back with a 3 kg winter melon size belly
with an additional body weight of 2.2kg.
congratulations ms u better stop eating
and start dieting!!!!
Phelan Segur......We had this for my b-day last year at Les Amis.
