fair trade. value for money, marco polo buffet is at the top of my list. they have enough selection that will satisfy any palate. aside from the usual spread, they also had some french dishes laid out as part of a food festival of sorts.
except that there was nothing interesting as they had stews that day.
i feasted mostly on seafoods for a change, scallops, tuna, salmon, prawns - grilled, served raw. have had enough of meat for the past few days.
on the other hand, whatever caorific savings i had got wasted with the the sweet ending. you know what i mean. tip, if you have to absolutely choose one then go for the flourless chocolate cake. the original sin.
on another note, marco polo put on a grand display for their christmas village set near the entrance to the lobby. hundreds of miniature structures with intricate details cover an area of about twenty by twenty feet, designed like a small village.
upon entering the lobby, you can't help but be amazed by the massive christmas tree set right in the middle. people gathered around the structure to get their pictures taken.
unlike the usual decors put up by every other establishment, marco polo made their christmas village and tree part of a drive to get donations for children with cancer. all you need to do is sponsor a house or a structure in the christmas village, or if your budget is not that big, you can place your name tag on a ball and they would hang it as part of the christmas tree decoration. if you do get the chance to visit the place, look for cacho. that's my little part in keeping the spirit alive.
