We started off with the appetizers such as Seafood on Ice, assorted salads, Sushi as well as the cold platters. The enhanced seafood selections now boast unlimited servings of crustaceans such as snow crab leg, tiger prawns, yabbies, mussels and slipper lobsters. 

Since the buffet dinner with the theme of Sea and Grill, Jen Hotel Penang offers a variety of seafood fest, such as oysters, mussels, clams, squids and a selection of fish are added to the buffet spread. The buffet spread comprised of both international flavors as well as local flavors so that it fits different liking of all guests. 

Some of the noteworthy main courses such as Stuffed Squid in Coconut Milk with Turmeric and Chili, Baked Oyster Pizzaiola, Oatmeal Butter Prawn, Herb Crusted Fish Fillets with Saffron Sauce, Sauteed Lala with Ginger and Spring Onion, and many more.

There were two live-cooking stations offering mouth-watering grilled-to-order seafood and meat, as well as piping hot Asian-favorite noodle soups to warm the soul and belly. On top of that, we got to try out assorted fishes wrapped in banana leaves with aromatic spices too. 

Apart from that, Jen Hotel Penang also provides carving section which serves Whole Baked or Oven Roasted Fish, Slow Roast US Spare Ribs as well as Leg of Lamb. The food presentation at the carving section can easily make us drool. 

The buffet dinner is completed with a wide selection of pastries, ice cream and tropical fruits. Chocolate lovers can indulge in the chocolate fountain with skewers of fruits, marshmallows, and sweet condiments. 

Since bae and I are currently on a low carb diet, you can see that we still enjoyed ourselves very much at the Sea and Grill Buffet Dinner. I did weight training right before the buffet dinner, so a big feast on all the seafood and meats certainly helped my high protein intake. 😁✌ 

Overall, Sea and Grill Buffet Dinner at Jen Hotel Penang certainly worth the money, especially if you sign up to be the Golden Circle Members and get 25% discount! I been to Jen Hotel Penang 4 times already in 2019 alone and I have to say that the newly revamped buffet dinner is so much nicer than before. So I strongly recommend to give it a try if you are looking for a place for gathering or even corporate event!

Friday Poolside BBQ Buffet Dinner is back! Royale Chulan Hotel Penang is bringing back their popular Poolside BBQ where you can indulge your TGIF with family and friends with barbecued meats and fresh seafood fire-grilled to perfection! 

Friday Poolside BBQ Buffet Dinner

Every Friday from 11 Oct - 27 Dec 2019
Poolside (Level 2)
6.30pm - 10.00pm

RM98 nett per adult
RM50 nett per senior citizen or child

Thanks to Royale Chulan Penang, bae and I were being invited to enjoy our Friday night with all the other bloggers to savor their Friday Poolside BBQ Buffet Dinner. We were excited as it was the first time we had the buffet dinner at the poolside as previously all were done at Sri Tanjung Cafe. 

To make it even more attractive, Royale Chulan Penang added another surprise where with every 2 paying guests, diners will enjoy a special Chef Seafood Surprise and with every 4 paying guests, diners will enjoy an exclusive Lucky Pot! 

The Friday Poolside BBQ Buffet Dinner was carefully designed to caters to guests of all ages by the Executive Sous Chef, Chef Kamarullizad @ Chef Andy. The full spread buffet dinner comprises of appetizers, salad, main courses, pasta station, live grill station and desserts. 

As you may know, bae and I are actually on a low carb diet. Yes, even if is buffet dinner, so long as you mind what you eat, you can still keep your diet on track. So here you can see we skipped the delicious Jambalaya rice, assorted pasta with all the mouthwatering sauces, and even the sweet dessert! 

As we are not too strict, so those sauces in small portion are still acceptable. So you can see a lot of protein such as Tandoori Chicken, Chicken Boxing, Salmon Fillet, Shrimp and both Chicken and Beef Satay. The only thing that should not appear in the plate is the Beef Jumbo Sausage! πŸ˜‚πŸ™Š

One of the best thing I like about BBQ Buffet Dinner is the availability of assorted grilled meat. Royale Chulan Penang offers various selections such as White Prawn Teriyaki, Spiced Paprika Slipper Lobster, Garlic Soy Sauce Calamari, Sambal Sting Ray Fish, Marinated Minute Steak, Chicken Wings and many more! Protein in all sort of forms! 😍😍😍

During our buffet dinner there, we get to try the Pan Fried Grouper where it is being offered to 2 pax booking, as well as the Lucky Pot which consists of Pan Fried Grouper, Scallop, Mussel, Prawn and Crab to those with 4 pax booking. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves at the Poolside BBQ Buffet Dinner. Given the price of RM98 nett with BBQ Buffet Dinner, I think it would be selling like a hot cake especially for those corporate looking for a place to do gathering dinner.

Henry Tan | 9:09 AM | | Be the first to comment!

Named after the Sunda Colugo aka The Malayan Flying Lemur, the Colugo Zip offers you a new way to marvel at the beauty of its rainforest - from an aerial perspective. You will experience gliding from tree to tree through the rainforest, just like the Colugo! Trained Rangers will escort visitors to ensure their safety and provide nature interpretation for a better appreciation of nature.

Call : +604 8267677

Bae and I went early in the morning since effective 1st April 2019, there is a Sunrise_Sunset Promotion ongoing where the train ticket is only RM3 per pax round trip from 6.30am - 8.00am and 7.30pm - 9.45pm. Otherwise, we would have to pay RM12 per pax during the normal hours. 

Upon arriving Penang Hill, we went to the registration hut in front Cliff Cafe a.k.a Astaka Bukit Bendera, the food court in Penang Hill. The person in charge at the hut would then arrange us to take buggy to send us to the entrance of The Habitat. 

A short walk from the entrance of The Habitat, we then arrived at their Information Centre/Cafe, a futuristic-looking building. πŸ˜‚ This is where you can get buy all their merchandise as well as grab a quick bite with a coffee.  

Since bae and I were there for the Colugo Zip, we proceed to the form filling part at the counter. To experience the Colugo Zip, we were required to sign off the waiver and release of liability form. Basically just the usual thing to acknowledge the risk of the activity and waive all liability from The Habitat. πŸ˜†

The person in charge at the counter was kind enough to remind us to go to the toilet first, as there's no toilet on top of the tree once we go up. And you certainly would not hope to "let it go" when you are gliding tree to tree.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Along with our ticket, we were given the bandana to cover our hair and more importantly, hygiene purpose when using the safety helmet. πŸ‘πŸ‘

The first staircase on the right after the Information Centre will then lead us to the Colugo Zip. We were quite lost at first without any signage as we didn't realized that the banner actually meant to tell us to go up from the staircase. πŸ˜…

At the top of the staircase, there's a small house keeping all the harness gears for the zipline. There are both male and female rangers there ready to help. All you have to do is just to stand there and they will set it up for you. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

We were given a locker to keep our belongings. Since I wanted to bring my camera along to take photo, the ranger was kind enough to provide me an extended pouch. πŸ‘Œ

After that, the two assigned rangers introduced themselves to us and follow by rules and regulations, as well as some simple demonstration. If you read from my previous experience in Escape, you would know that I am actually afraid of height. I was so scared that I even asked the ranger if I could try once at their demonstration area! (at least let me try before I go up to tree top right!) πŸ˜‚

Unfortunately, they said no. But they reassured me that it would be safe and fun. Following their procedure, one will be in front one will be covering at the back. And even right before we depart, they did another final check on our harness gear too! So kudos to the rangers! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

The first zipline of Colugo Zip is actually the Honeymoon Zip whereby two persons can go side by side. Like the name suggests, bae and I held each other hand tightly and completed the zip line together. But I supposed it's more like supporting each other to conquer the fear we had given it was the first zipline. 😝

Including in the Colugo Zip, there is also an abseiling to be done from a super tall tree. Different from my expectation, all we need to do is just hold on the rope and rangers will slowly drop us down. Trust me, the difficult part is where you have to step out from the platform and make the leap! πŸ˜‚

After that once you know you can trust the harshness and rangers to keep you safe to the ground, then just enjoy the view of surrounding! Half way the rangers would even asked you to let go of your hands to challenge your courage as well as for photo taking! 

It was our first zipline experience together given that there is not many zipline in Malaysia and bae is definitely not the adventurous type of people. πŸ˜† Nevertheless we did this together! 

After the Honeymoon Zip, there were 4 other ziplines to complete as well but basically just glide across from one tree to another. One taller than another or longer in distance. Along the way while resting on the platform, rangers would share with us their experiences as well as some knowledge of the nature habitat.

The type of tree, their traits and the ecosystem etc were all well explained by the rangers! Certainly a fun learning trip on our mother earth. 😁

The rangers also shared with us on how the platform were built on the tree without hurting the tree itself. Smart tree hugging technique! Rangers told us that from time to time there would be maintenance and inspection to ensure the safety of both human and the tree! 

After the 5 ziplines and 1 abseiling, we went to the rope bridge. Stepping on the rope bridge is not the scariest part, but looking down is! But once you took a few steps then there isn't much to be scared of. πŸ’ͺ  

Overall, I think it was a great experience to challenge our limit, gain more knowledge of the mother nature as well as spending time with the love one. Truly thanks to our two friendly rangers and sorry I forgotten their name as I dragged too long to write this post.

So wait no more! 
I dare you to challenge yourself! 😁
