Food Tasting Event @ Grand Dorsett Subang Hotel

Recently, I was given a chance to attend my very first food tasting event. Thanks to Nana Eddy, a blogger friend of mine, invited me to Grand Dorsett Subang Hotel for this food tasting event. The other bloggers, like my sister, Orange, Stephanie, Jayren, Yeeing, Jia Yeen, Carmen, Nikel and Elvin attended this food tasting event too. On that day, my sister and I went to Stephanie's house first. Took some photos there too.

We met some other bloggers too, from somewhere. They came for the food tasting event too. We were lead to a cafe, known as Aroma Cafe. Well, Aroma Cafe came with a choice :

Next stop would be the Premier Lounge. Its specially for those customers who pay more for their visits. They can check in at their floor and had their breakfast, lunch or any meal there at that floor so that it would be less crowded compared to the normal restaurants or cafe in ground floor.

We were served by some food and wine too.

Upper part : cakes + desserts, some tempura too.
