Pizza as Birthday Cake

A local Sudanese guy's birthday was celebrated with him treating us to pizzas ............ told you it was their staple food.

This pizza is as big as a normal adult's office chair. Go measure it yourself. It's not from Debonairs Pizza but from one of those local pizza outlets.

No idea on what sort of pizza is this but I suspect it was with mutton meat as toppings.

Doesn't pass my quality and taste tests .... but cannot complain as the birthday boy bought for us ......... just swallow.

Towards the late afternoon after a series of meetings, we dropped by at Pullman Hotel of the Accor Groupe. This building was formerly occupied by Hilton and the change of hotel ownership took place in Jan 2008.

We wanted to find out the room rates and got to know with a special corporate account we coudl get a room with a single bed at US$180, all in. Breakfast will be at US$27.

At that room rate, I could book a suite in hotels located in Kuala Lumpur.
