Last weekend, we went to Singapore Marina Mandarin Hotel for a relative’s son birthday celebration. We had a buffet lunch at Aquamarine restaurant in this hotel. It has been several years since I was pampered with buffet meal in an elegant surrounding.

Of course, I didn’t forget to take some photos of this beautiful hotel. However, I had to use Panasonic FX36 point and shoot camera since it was too troublesome to bring the much bigger Nikon D60 SLR camera.

Marina Mandarin Hotel was built with great design in mind. You can see elegant decoration and design in every corner. The huge empty space in the middle is surrounded by hotel rooms. And the external elevator moves up and down to transport people between these rooms. Enjoy the spacious environment accompanied by the elevator’s gentle movement.

Hmmm… I’m hungry! Let’s go get some food at the Aquamarine buffet restaurant. As its name suggests, this restaurant is designed around the theme of marine world. You will see light and clear design everywhere. However, don’t expect to see prawn, crab and other seafood being served here.

The food was good (I’m easily satisfied with food) although the service was slightly slow when we ordered our drink. Maybe it was due the crowded people in that Saturday noon. Overall, I really enjoyed this buffet lunch.

For any buffet meal, just remember not to eat too full. You may want to “eat back your money” but at the end, you’re ruining your health.
