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??

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
