Tea Time Break At Petite Mary, Ipoh

NO FOOD...  My fridge was practically empty yesterday and I was too lazy to drive out in the hot sun.  Went online to look for Foodpanda but ended up not getting anything.  Lots of variety but I have no appetite for those.  Then someone saved me... my neighbour!  She must have 6th sense cos she "donated" a big plate of noodles for me!  So really nice of her...

This morning I made it a point to go marketing and ended up buying at least a week's ration!  LOL.. The greens that I bought can easily last me 4-5 days, just in case I experienced my laziness mode again.  Took my sister along for the marketing spree, and after that, we went and relaxed ourselves with an hour foot massage.  Hmmm... Bliss!  After "caging up" for so long, it is so good to be pampered.  And....after our massage, we adjourned for our light lunch at Petite Mary, Ipoh Garden.  She loves bread and coffee and I had an urge for croissant sandwich.
Pumpkim soup with 3 fresh bread which was still warm to the touch... 
My giant croissant!  
Forgot to open it up to show the two lumps of tuna... 
Our Tea Time break.... 
Oh my, the portions are really BIG!
Definitely have to Share!

Places To Go For Walks In Penang

SWEAT.....

Hot weather is here in Ipoh as well as in Penang.  I really do not mind the Hot these days, I heard that hot temperature kills the C-virus, yes?  I hope it does!  With this global disease these days, I heard so much on what-to-do and what's-not-do.  Questions like... "Have you store up your pantry?"  Why?  I asked... Do I really have to?  So far, I did not, I only have a few packets of dry noodles which are going to expire soon and a small tub of fragrance rice in my fridge.  That is all...er... . I think Ipoh is still "safe." 

Talking about the hot weather, I went out for evening walks even though the sun has not set yet.  It was still sunny... well, who cares now.... let's go for sun-bathing.... kill the germs!  LOL...
Here comes the sun... and I say... Its alright!!
At the Botanical Gardens at 6pm... 
At the Air Itam dam.... I love taking walks here too...
Walking along the nature and dam area... 
At Bukit Dumbar where I walked three big rounds.... 
Then it is time to fill up the lost calories again!

My Food Adventure In Penang

MISSING IN ACTION AGAIN?

Yeah, from my blog, that is... It has been a number of days since my last post.  Where was I?  What have I been doing all these while.... why am I so lazy when it comes to blogging now?  For all I know, I have been going here and there despite the virus-mania thingy.  Someone spread me some virus, I have been coughing out lots of endless phlegm, whitish in color, not greenish... urghhhh.. and I have been to the doctor who prescribed me a bout of antibiotics to clear my throat.. three types of cough mixture I had been consuming and what else.... hmmm.... oh, no fever... Thank God for that...

No, I did not go around spreading my germs, in fact I have been cooking a lot at home, porridge and stuff.. that was why no foodie posts.  And NOW... I AM BACK!  Back to my old self and going up north, eating whatever my heart desires, it is like paying back time!  My weighing scale just informed me that I have gained 2kg already!  Serious!  Anyway.... no regrets la.... It is good to be back in my eating form after astaining for so long!

Food that I took in Penang for the past few days....

From Habee's Kitchen, Nagore Road.... 
Something appetizing....
Fish slices in tomato broth...
I like the bitter gourd soup too....
Around RM14 per bowl... 
With "fu pei" RM8
I like economy noodles too....
This is taken in Tye Sin Street....
The taste of the noodles reminded me of my childhood days...
This meal set gives me full satisfaction!
Springroll and Lobak to go with the noodles....
Famous wanton noodles at Chulia Street.... 
Fragrance from the Lard!
Hawker vendor selling Yong Tau Foo.... 
 I yearned for it the next day but unfortunately it was not opened....
Followed by 5 pieces of Apom by an elderly lady just opposite the Wanton noodles.... 
One piece 50 sen....
Ended the meal with a bowl of cooling Ching Poh Leong at Kimberley Street.....
Next night we had Mala Hotpot at Xiang Guo Burma Road.... 
Oh, by the way, this does not belong to us..
The waiter took it away after realizing his mistake...
This is ours... not a nice sight, right?
Taste wise... ok ok but a bit pricey.. RM38 with one bowl of rice and drinks...
And this was taken at Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay at Jalan Masjid....
I was super full that time... so I just ordered a plate of Ju Hu Char RM13

And a few Koays to go with my hot lemon honey.... 
How not to gain weight?
I have to justify the food with long walks in the evenings...
 Botanical Gardens, Bukit Dumbar and Ayer Itam Dam...
LOL...
