Dip-Dip In Rat Island

Back to the hotel around 5pm and waited for Andy to finish his classes... by the time we got ready for dinner, it was almost 6pm and it was time for Dinner! Andy suggested Rat Island for food .. does it sound appetizing?  LOL... Well,  we three ladies readily agreed... anything goes as long as the food is good!
Pasar Pulau Tikus... Rat Island Market! 
LOL...
So what is special here.... Andy?
Lok-Lok... or should I say.. Dip-Dip?
Yes, Lok-Lok as we used to call them during the yester-years...
These were served on the table and all you got to do is to choose 
and dip them into the hot boiling water in the middle...
That is why I called it Dip-Dip....
What shall I eat..... hmmmm.....
 Different type of sauces to choose from....
At the same time, we ordered Fried Koay Teow...
and ... my favourite drink...
All-In-One....
 Kind of messy, right?
Our dinner was quite cheap...
Only RM28 for the Lok-Lok...
And we were filled to the brim....
 
Looks like Andy enjoyed his dinner... 
We surely did.. but .....
Something is still missing after dinner...
Can you guess what it is? 
First Correct answer will get one small souvenir.. 
hahahaa...
The answer will be in tomorrow's post!!

  1. I like this type...with clear boiling water and not the satay gravy type that they have in Malacca. The gravy coiling like the mud pools in Rotorua, New Zealand...or worse...ummm..never mind! Hehehehe!!!! Then people eat the stick halfway, dip in again to get more gravy...all the saliva inside. Eyewwwwwww!!!!!

  8. Dessert or coffee is missing? We have this here! It is called Fondue. You dip the protein in the hot oil. Then for desserts there are cubes of cake or fruit and you dip in the hot sauces, cheese or chocolate.

  9. Agree with Arthur. At least this dip dip is far better than the satay celup in Malacca. RM 28 for all those is dirt cheap and best part is all are full and satisfied. Hmm...I saw a 20/50 cents coin on the table. Drinks is missing.

  20. Pulau Tikus is one of the expensive spot in Penang even kopi 'o' is dearer by 10sen compared to downtown. Probably of the rich tycoons living there. Not sure about the trend now as Penang has developed so much already.

  29. RM28 for all the sticks of lok lok at your table? That's a lot. Did you manage to finish eating all of them?

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
