Goat Year Reunion Buffet Dinnet at G Cafe, G Hotel Penang

With Chinese New Year just around the corner, why not plan your reunion dinner with the gathering of families at G Hotel as G Café has come up with a splendid buffet spread that comes with a live BBQ. 

The highlight of the buffet will be the Salmon Yee Sang. It’s time to raise the chopstick and toss the mixture of the raw fish, shredded vegetables, chopped nuts and toasted sesame seeds with a special sauce. In Chinese custom, it is said that the higher you toast the Yee Sang the higher your fortune and luck for the year!

Huat ahhhhh !

As a starter, G Café will be serving Fish Maw Soup along with other choices of hot and cold soup. Fish Maw soup is a tasty and flavorful dish whereby the fish maw is double boiled with Chinese herbs, chicken, dry scallops and red dates. Fish maw is like a tofu and almost tasteless, used for its unique texture and ability to soak up other flavors it’s cooked with. For Chinese New Year this would be an ideal soup to serve for the whole family.

Another mouth-watering starter is the Braised Sea Kingdom Chowder or in another word it’s a seafood stew. Fresh prawns, mussels, fish and crabmeat are braised in a clear broth and then thickened with cream. This creamy with subtle flavors of seafood best eaten while it still hot and for a fulfilling meal, guests can consume this stew with choices of freshly baked bread.

The salad bar offers a wide range of vegetables such as iceberg lettuce, romaine, red chicory, lollo rossa and many others. And it also comes with various kinds of dressings and condiments too.

Mussel Sambal

Chicken in Sweet Soy Sauce

Chef’s recommendation for the main item will be the Fried Prawn Golden Egg with York Sauce. The fresh prawns are deep fried and cooked together with salted egg york, cili padi, curry leaves and together with butter to enhance the aroma. This dish is perfectly eaten on its own or with steamed rice.

 The must have on the dinner table during Chinese New Year is fish. The recommended fish dish is the Baked Whole Salmon Chili Mayo which is delicious and creatively presented. The salmon is marinated with chili sauce, mayonnaise, onion and capsicum and baked to create a fusion dish that will surprise and delight everyone. 

Now this fish looks simply amazing right?

The Roasted Peking Duck is a whole duck marinated with spice powder and then roasted to perfection. The slices of the roasted duck along with cucumber, leek, spring onions and a dash of Hosin sauce are then rolled with the egg skin for a complete oriental dish. 

Each bite of this makes you craving for more.

For seafood enthusiast, the Live BBQ counter is stacked and loaded with Salmon, Cat Fish, Squid, King Prawn, Slipper Lobster and many more fresh seafood and seasonal catch.  Not forgetting poultry and meat lovers, there will be choices of Chicken Chop, Lamb Chop, Beef Steak, Chorizo and Sausages. All ingredients are grilled to perfection, tender, juicy and accompanied with different kinds of barbeque sauces according to individual preferences.

How about some famous Penang hawker delicacies.

Fried Koay Teow

Hokkien Mee

To complement the reunion dinner, our Award Winning Pastry Chef, Chef Tan has prepared Chinese New Year cakes such as the fragrant Pandan Chiffon Cake which is baked using the real pandan leaves. 

Lets have a look at some of the mouth-watering irresistible desserts. 

The must try festive confectionery is the Chinese Pan Cake. The pancake is stuffed with white lotus seed paste and then deep fried. The other sweet fares are assorted Chinese New Year Cookies, Gai Lung Jelly, Hot Tau Fu Fa and many more sweet tooth items.

David Guetta - Listen

Photo Courtesy of Warner Music Malaysi
David Guetta's is back with his incredible sixth album, Listen, which was released worldwide on the 24th of November 2014 through Atlantic/Parlophone and is now available (Google Play & iTunes ). Listen, unites three years of production work with David’s desire to produce records that strike a chord with his huge army of fans and equally, opens the hearts, ears and minds of others. His most sophisticated and unexpected work, Listen is an evolution, with a range of surprises, from mid-tempo new single ‘Dangerous,’ to a ballad with Sia. Changing his production style from creating beats and laying vocals to working in a more traditional sense, this song-based album was crafted from simple guitar/voice or piano/voice, then produced. Listen is about taking risks, and the results are spectacular.

Here is what David Guetta has to say about Listen:

“I could have chosen to repeat the style that has become so successful for me, but I wanted to grow as a producer and push myself to the limit. Try new ideas. Get out of my comfort zone. Create songs that stand up whether played by a DJ, a rock band or an orchestra. I worked with piano, violins, guitars and blended them with electronic elements. It’s also my most personal album lyrically, which is why I called it Listen. Dance too, but really it’s from the heart.”

Having already scored his first international chart hit from the album with ‘Lovers On The Sun’, a track that hit #1 in the UK, France and for a record-breaking 7 weeks in Germany, completing his club-beat EP and the bridge from what came before, Listen feels ready to build on the successes of David’s 2011 album ‘Nothing But The Beat,’ which sold over 4 million copies globally, and GRAMMY-nominated 2009 album ‘One Love’.

Enlisting special guest collaborators including UK songstress Emeli Sandé, who lends her vocals to the powerful ‘What I Did For Love’, Irish three-piece The Script, limitless singer-songwriter John Legend and US rap star Nicki Minaj on ‘Hey Mama’, there are a broad range of styles and influences that help make Listen such an exciting record. In a brilliant close to the album, David also teams up with enchanting vocalist Sia on the heartfelt and beautiful ‘The Whisperer’. Then, literally, at the 11th hour, his Titanium partner delivered the jaw-dropping “Bang My Head”, completing his finest body of work.

Listen also highlights another important element of David’s mission too - introducing the world to incredible new talent. Rising star Sam Martin, featured vocalist on both ‘Lovers On The Sun’ and new single ‘Dangerous,’ is an artist who embodies David’s ability to identify stars of the future.

David Guetta video for ‘Dangerous’ premiered on Friday, October 31st 2014 at 12pm EST on The video, directed by Jonas Åkerlund, premiered globally via Google+ Hangout at YouTube Space New York. David will be speaking with music expert Bill Werde about his new album and the making of the video, as well as answering questions from fans. Fans can start submitting their questions Wednesday. David will be answering the Top 10 questions from Google+ users with the most +1s. Watch the video of ‘Dangerous’ here.

With David Guetta now also boasting well over 3 Billion views and 8.4 million subscribers on YouTube, an incredible 57 million fans on Facebook, as well as a further 5.8 million followers on Spotify, making him the most popular Spotify artist in the world, fevered responses to the initial album announcement are a testament to the continued love and dedication of his fans.

Listen is therefore not only an extraordinary album, but one that proves David is right at the top of his game. From his willingness to take these risks and experiment with his own sounds, to joining forces with world-leading artists from a host of different musical backgrounds, Listen is the work of a true, modern-day music icon.  But if you ask him, he’ll proudly say he’s just a DJ who makes records. Listen and hear for yourself.
