Lunch At Lorong Selamat, Penang

When it came to lunch, all of us went out to Lorong Selamat for the famous hawker food. I know we should not go there because it is a tourist area but then, this place is one of the best I know of...  though it is a bit pricey but then when it comes to traveling, we got to spend and pay more, right?  Cannot be so calculative...  hahhaa...

Here are some of the food we ordered....
can you guess what this is??
it is "otak-otak"... 
I ordered one for myself cos my kids don't like it...
Love the spices and the fish... yummy!!
my son loves this... fried oyster... Penang style...
followed by a plate of fried Koay Teow..
small mini-sized portion...
just nice for us ladies but surely not enough for the boys..
and of course, this is not to be missed... 
Penang Chendol...
Don't ask the prices..
I cannot remember anyway.. hahaa...
Eating is fun... 
But it will not be if we keep remembering their prices... 

Kuay Teow Th’ng


  1. wow the otak-otak looks so huge! :D

  2. The otak otak looks delicious although I am not a fan : )

  3. I would love the otak-otak too.

  4. i been to lorong selamat makan makan ..
    d PG cendol is simple the best..

  5. I was just thinking to myself that you must be rich to afford to eat out so much.

  6. You're right. Although we are aware that Lorong Selamat sells one of the most expensive food on the island, somehow tourist will still flock in. That's the advantage of being reputable.

  7. What is this hawker food, is it like from a street vendor? Looks so good!

  8. Yummmm.... Now you're making me miss Penang and all the food there. These are what I love - and what Penang is all about!!!

    Huh? Otak-otak not in banana leaf? that fail already lah... Potong markah.

  9. The otak-otak so big. For yourself only. Anyway, not a fan of it. Fried oyster and koay teow and the Penang cendol looks simply mouth-watering.

  10. fish: actually not so huge.. just a bowl.. :)

    foong: yeah, cos of the spices smell?

    wenn: me too!

    mery: it was not bad.. nice..

    simpleperson:the one in penang road is nice too!

    gigi: over here, eating out is a norm.. sometimes it is cheaper to eat out than cooking at home.. :)

    ginny: hawker food.. means the authentic food in Penang.. mainly sold in open air shops..

    stp: the leaves were at the bottom.. this one more commercialized one..

    irene: how come i eat almost anything sold one ah? :)

  11. I can see how good the food is from the smiley of your girl.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
