What's up with holding this in Lake View Club?

We had a successful outing last year – bum2007, don’t you remember? Mudah Lupa, ke? (REF: )-- at Lake View Club, so it’s back to an expected familiar welcome and great feast at what is anticipated to become a regular haunt for Bloggers. Our journalist/blogger, Desiderata has checked out the menu to meet the tastes of the majority of anticipated Guests -- Halal buffet is served there and full conference facilities are available there (plus bum2008 Organising Committee believes we can get a better offer here than the Croc Farm next door, so we won’t risk it:). Please note that the Menu stated below is subject to slight variation!
