Activities Along Beach Street In Penang

During my weekend in Penang, we went to Church Street, I was told that they have some interesting activities along the Church Street in Georgetown every Sunday. Indeed there was when I reached around 11am on that beautiful sunny Sunday.  Some part of the roads were being blocked to make way for the pedestrians to walk freely and to take part in some activities.  Sort of a family day...Kids can cycle freely, there are bicycles for rent, two wheels, three wheels.... To my delight, it was indeed an eye opener for me and I would love to go there once again...
Church Street... mainly office buildings...
Colonial structures... 
Nice deco here.. our local buildings not bad, huh...
Fun and activities...
What's the name of the game?
Sweet voices filled the air... "Nobody, nobody but You.... "
Sounded like Korean singers....
T-shirts and souvenirs for sale....
This is something new to me...
Knives Massage, anyone???
 Looks like fun here too... 
I wouldn't mind having a ride in this too!
Family bonding day.... 
Ipoh should have one of these street activities too...
Standing in the midst of it all...
Must come by here again the next time...
Do some cycling exercise.... hmmm....

  2. Interesting. If only the weather here is like overseas, that would be really nice. In KK, Sabah, they have the tamu at Gaya Street on Sunday mornings. I love that too!

  3. i like this street lah.. i think only in Penang?? surely in KL there are rarely something like this, if there is then it's always indoor.. i like these activities "al fresco", it feels more active and sporting (just like you), agree??

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 …
