Monterey’s (2nd Visit)
Sheraton Perth Hotel
207 Adelaide Terrace, Perth, Western Australia
I’m still stuck at Perth. The delayed flight didn’t take off at midnight. We actually boarded the plane at 1am in the morning and were told to get off again soon after. Apparently, the pilots have clocked in their maximum hours and it would be illegal for them to fly us to Sydney. It was quite dramatic—people were very angry and shouted at the Qantas staff. But there’s really nothing we can do and so, I’m back at the Sheraton Hotel until the next available flight out.
Qantas offered us complimentary full breakfast buffet at Monterey’s which cost AUD$35 (SGD$45.50) per head. I slept till almost 11am and was very hungry when I went down for breakfast. The fruits were very fresh and sweet. I think I ate 2 plates of watermelon, rock melon, grapefruit, pineapple and others.
There’s also natural yoghurt with fruit toppings like apricot and plums and there’s a variety of regional cheese which of course, I didn’t try.
The bread and pastries section was very popular and fresh food was brought out efficiently.
I didn’t try the scrambled egg as I had an omelette at the live cooking station instead.
There's bacons, which westerners seem to love, and grilled tomatoes which were really fresh and great!
My favourite is these small mushrooms which look so cute and taste so natural and fabulous.
There’s a range of cereal and museli, juices and milk.
Service was very good. I didn’t feel any pressure from them to leave even though by the time I finished, the restaurant was almost deserted and the staff was preparing for the lunch buffet.
Life is certainly unpredictable. A delayed flight of more than 20 hours landed me in this situation which, I have to admit, isn't as bad as it seems. Who knows what will happen next?
