First Time To Maxim Dim Sum At Sungai Dua, Penang

Third morning in Penang...

By now Andy is quite familiar with the island already, well, at least with some places of good food. After staying here for few years now, he knows at least 30% on how to go about ... hahaha....(have I mentioned he is poor in directions? Like mother, like son!)

Back to our 3rd morning or should I say 11am brunch time, he led us to Maxim Dim Sum in Sungai Dua...
First time in history...
my son recommended dim sum shop to us... 
it was quite crowded...but we managed to find a side table....
the shop is quite big... maybe two shops made into one...
Advertising for Tooth Paste Teeth before food....
Which picture is more qualifying for Tooth Paste Advertisement?
hahahaha...
oopps...why am I like WIB? or MIB?

Our initial orders...
Adding some extras after few minutes.... 
And that's not all... 
There were more to that...no time to take pictures...
Our chopsticks were too busy... LOL...
And the best thing is.....
The bill only came to RM49 something!
So cheap that we came again the next morning to try other varieties...
How was the Dim Sum?
Well, we sure want to come again... 
No doubt about that!  :)

  1. Food in Penang are cheaper and definitely cheaper than in Kota Kinabalu. Dim Sum for less than RM50.00 is really really cheap.

  2. Whah....Claire, u look sexy in big black spectacles :D My gosh....those dimsum makes me drool. Looks too good....mmm. I miss Penang. Sg Dua? That's the place (don't mean the shop...haha) where I had my first dinner the day I arrived Penang. Actually it was very late dinner around 9pm....late huh. The only thing left was roti canai....never heard of before! Didn't know how it look like. I was given a choice of stuff to go with it. Finally chose sugai. My gosh.......how horrible it tasted......haha. But well, after 3 yrs not touching any roti canai, I fell in love with it one day after trying it with curry dhal. Then I had it EVERYDAY for breakfast for a whole year!!! How extreme huh!....haha

    Mary: Sugai? what is that to go with roti canai?? hahaha.. I also never heard of it.. normally roti canai goes well with curry fish, chicken or dhal. Nowadays I prefer capati and tosai cos healthier.. oil-less.. hehehe..

  5. Nice? Seems lots of nice eating places there...including one famous Thai restaurant, I think. But far from city lah...cannot go if no car, nobody to bring - taxi in Penang - daylight robbery.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
