Jollification at Merdeka Palace Hotel & Suites

So, December is here yet again, its the season of giving as everyone knows. 
It's almost Christmas! Yay~!

Anyhow, last 2 weeks I have to reject the invitation from Pullman, Miri as it was too last minutes and I have other things to attend so I was a bit frustrated (with myself of course) for not able to went there and have a good time. Why? That will be a reason for another entry.

But for this particular post, its really more about Merdeka Palace Hotel here in my own city, Kuching. Home sweet home.

They are opening back one of their glorious function room called La Habana. Well, not really quite a "function room" if you get what I mean. When you mention function room to me, maybe I'll more picture it as a a big spacious room to held a party of hundreds or even thousand maybe. Well, that just me ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ

But this La habana Cigar Divan is actually just a nice room for a private event, a small party, kind of giving a homey feelings to those who are in it.  It is actually a cigar room, so hola to all cigar lovers out there.๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ™‹ This is an opportunity for you guys to relax and try their wide selection of imported Cuban cigars. Their cigars are kept in a special room with perfect level of humidity that has significant effect on their taste. 

To all party lovers out there, when you are trying to find a venue to gather or hosted a party, don't forget to put La Habana in your wishlist. This Divan offers a warm ambiance dominated by elegantly plush furnishings and comfortable sofas. It opens daily from 3pm to 11pm with a seating of 35 person. Just perfect for your small informal gatherings. 

Now, let's talk about the thing that we've all been waiting for. The FOOD! 


Let's take a sneak peak first for most of the food that you guys can savour during the Christmas Eve Dinner/Lunch/Brunch and for the New Years Eve at Merdeka Palace. 

Fruit Skewer, Marshmallow on sticks with chocolate fondue for the dark and white chocolate lovers. I think by now people know how good the fruit with chocolaty tastes. Well, who can say NO to the chocolates? I certainly can't! ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿ™… 

Christmas Yule Log

Caprese of Tomato with Mozarella Cheese
Bruschetta Fiorentina

Beef Lasagna is to die for. Creamy and melt in your mouth not in your hand.

Gratinated Prawn with Newburg Sauce

Seafood Paella

Pollo Ananas and Four Cheese Pizza. My kind of favourite pizza. Thin layers, crispy and luxurious rich taste. 

Air Dried Beef with Honey Melon 
Mushroom Cappuchino. I can never get enough of this. The texture is so creamy with a distinctive taste of the mushroom itself on the bottom. If you drink this like me. Bottoms up! 

Baked Chicken Roulade with Chicken Juice


Aglio Oglio. A bit bland for me.
Perfect level of spiciness but thats it

I like this. Nice concept where you can try to squeeze
the juice inside the cake to give it a zesty taste. 

Chocolate fudge cake/tiramisu in glass with add
on chocolate 
Inside the cake after being squeeze. Nope. I though it would
be pouring in there (so was everyone else) but nope.
100 Marks for the effort! It does give a slightly
different taste.

You know how great the foods are when you see almost all the plates is empty. Oh ya the drinks is actually one of their specialty, White and Red Sangria Mocktail. Totally forgot to take those drinks pictures.
