Ever wondered how is breakfast served in the world second largest hotel of First World Hotel at Genting? (It was the world's largest by Dec 2006)
Sorry, lazy to find a Genting photo
Housing 6,118 rooms, the bloody 500,000 sq feet resort cum indoor theme park cum casino is one of the most impressive project ever to build in the world.
Everyone in Malaysia loves~~~ Genting. Yes? No?
Admit it, the only reason (gambling aside) that you travel all the way 1700m above sea level on a weekend, or even on a weekday, sometimes not minding a one day trip and pay over hundreds for a little cramp room in an overly cramp hotel with probably another few thousands (say 6000-10,000 ppl on a full day) visitors is just because..
It's kinda chilly up there.
Living in Malaysia, we get sunny weather all year round. And I mean HOT sunny weather. Not only that, it's humid! We hate the sun so much, we would pay hundreds of ringgits to stay in a little cramp room in an overly cramp hotel with probably another few thousands visitors is just to get away from the heat.
Yep, it's perfectly normal for a Malaysian to escape to 1700m above sea level for a one/two days getaway to hide in the clouds just because we don't particularly fancy our weather.
They have the rooms to accommodate, they have the entire mountain for space, they definitely have the facilities to entertain; but how on earth do they feed their thousands of guests on a daily basis on a free buffet breakfast?
They bring in the army of course.
Or at least.. skills used in military.
First, they assign two fully trained specialised chefs to each station.
Chef 1 & 2 - position - egg fryers
Keep to an easy menu.
Instead of fancy looking bowls, they use tower containers to store the cereals.
"It's almost gone, fill 'er up!"
As for the drinks?
It's orange juice.
It's quite easy really. Served up to basic need, it's simple, fast, and efficient. Brilliant!
All you need to do is allocate a stand for food collection every few meters away or so so the crowd can spread equally across the level.
You'll find crowd surrounding the station holding their tiny plates waiting for sunny side-ups.
Eating here, is like begging for food.
Don't underestimate a hungry mob though.
Despite sucky simply boring food and drinks,
it's a dog eat dog world out there.
Fruit platter - gone
Even the egg chef runs out of work in a jiff
"No more egg, come back tomorrow"
Bloody hell, peanuts also not spared.
Chinese being chinese, this couple is taking every opportunity to save cost for lunch and dinner.
My breakfast - not to bad
I love runny yolk on toast.
Ahh, I love Genting.
