Well, talk about indulgent! The prices in Malaysia are about a third of the prices in Australia and as a result we could afford a ten course dinner  on New Year’s Eve. What a great time we had. We managed to spread it out from 7:30pm – 12:00 midnight without too much trouble at all. We needed to really, in spite of the delicate sizes of the courses, we were filling up slowly over the evening so needed the ‘wait’ time between courses to rest. We had a lovely trainee hotel management student looking after us and he was very willing to travel at our speed. It was a lovely evening and even the musical duo, provided for our enjoyment, wasn’t too distracting.

Our  meal was in the Tosca Restaurant in the hotel beside the pool. A lovely setting and cool enough, with the fans on and the night air wasn’t too hot so, quite acceptable.

The 10 courses.

The courses are listed so I will add the images in order so you can see what we consumed very slowly and happily. Oh, and the wine was magnificent too.
