Bellevue Char Koay Teow And Desserts Up On Penang Hill

ON THE WAY TO PENANG HILL, we got to know this chef in the train.  He told us that he works for Bellevue Hotel on the hills and his specialty is Char Koay Teow aka Best Fried Noodles.  That means we Must go and try since we were already there.  We did that after our long walk... we went looking for the place and we found it.
We saw him again and we ordered two plates... 
Couldn't wait to try!
Here goes.... one plate cost RM8.80
Reasonable price since this is up on the hill...
Let's dig in!
This type of transport is provided for those who stay at the hotel.... 
We did not so we have to walk and walk.... 
Too bad the "7 dwarfs" are too dark to be seen....
A bit foggy when looking down....
Looking down from the highest restaurant....
A LOVE place... it is gated...
One has to pay to go in to take pictures...
We did not... 
All the LOVE Locks locking the couples in love...
Serious? 
I did not hang any love... I hang around here instead...
This is more realistic...
And then desserts time!
Which shall we choose?
All these are just fakes...
The lady told us she spent more than 10K having these displays done...
They look so real, right?
These are the real ones we ordered....
Soon... it was time to descent.... 
Back to the lowland... 
One day when we are free, we might come again..
Maybe to spend a night up on the hill...
One day.... hmmm...

Chugging Up To Penang Hill

FOR THE FIRST TIME... we went up to Penang Hill during the day.  The last time I went was at night, could not see anything in the dark, could hear a lot of nature noise only.  This time I managed to see how Penang Hill looks like.  Tickets for the tram ride for seniors at the age of 60 and above is RM6, I am the only one who paid RM12 ... Ahemmm.... Still not senior yet!!  LOL.... 

Did not know what to expect up there, the weather might be cold?  I took a jacket along just in case.  Well, we were wrong, the weather was just as hot!  hahaha... Next time we know!  It was all about walking in Penang Hill... for nature lovers and those who love to walk, this is a good place to explore.   We spent more than 3 hours up on the hill.... it was worth the walk through... 
Welcome to Penang Hill....
We did a lot of walking... I like it tremendously...
Yes, we walked up to the highest restaurant in Penang....
Come, let's go!
Still early, no business yet... anyway, this is the place to dine best in the evening...
From the restaurant, we walked further up to see this.... 
Another restaurant.... 
Took a short rest.... 
And joked about this and that... I wonder who took that picture!
Went to the skywalk... 
And had this with Bugs Bunny.... 
Here and there... we walked.... 
And have fun taking pictures as well!
To be continued tomorrow with food and desserts on the hill.....

Our Scrumptious Dinner At Hai Boey Seafood Restaurant, Penang

CHECKED IN....  to rest, to refreshen and then off we go again...

This time we went a bit further to the Bayan Lepas side.  One of my friends suggested going to Hai Boey Fishery Restaurant for our dinner.  We have to be there early to beat the crowd, so early that we were the first customers entering the open air restaurant.  Since we were the early birds, we walked around the beach area and explored a bit... Then we ordered a few dishes for our dinner and all of us guessed incorrectly when the bill came....
At the entrance of the seafood restaurant... 
overlooking the beach.... 
Let's check out what to order... 

Someone is having fun at the "booth"...
All of us had fresh coconut for drinks... 
Appetizers... Fried Eggplant...
Overflowing Curry Prawns in Coconut gravy....
We must order this again the next time!
Fresh young okra with chopped condiments which taste like sweet sour and spicy...
A rather small portion of Lala... 
Steaming hot fish in Claypot...
Red Snapper it is....
Claypot Flower Crab... the soup has a wine taste in it...
Part of the food served... 
The crabs came in later....
And the price came to around RM220...

And the lady diners with full grins!!
We must come back again for other dishes one day!!
