A Night Stay At Royale Bintang Hotel, Penang

Spent a one night stay in The Royale Bintang Hotel, Penang last weekend.  My friend told me that there is a promotion going on till end of this month only.  Also heard that this is a newly opened hotel right in the heart of historic George Town, I never been there so I am all game for it...

Since the promotion rate is within our budget, we made a trip up north on Saturday for a night stay and I was surprised to see that it is an existing colonial architecture, reminded me of our Ipoh Hongkong and Shanghai Bank Building in old town.  The Hotel is located at the Weld Quay area, just minutes by foot from the city's most famous bankings and shopping area, that includes major historic sites along the Heritage Trial of Penang. 
Entrance is from behind the building....
 
At the lobby... 
I think my hands were shaking then.... 
Didn't do much credit to the hotel... too bad... 
 To the lifts....
Lobby Lounge....
Relaxing if we got the time to laze around here in the evening....
That's me, alright!
Further in, it was like another world on its own here...
Something different....
 Like Spanish  concept...
Siesta time!
Another lounge for meals....
Odd time when I went so there was no one around.....
All looks new and nice here.... 
The Deluxe Room...
Can easily fit US small size people..
Everything looks new....  
 That's a mirror here separating the bedroom and the bathroom....
From the balcony of my window.....
Sun-Bathing and Sun Swimming in the afternoon?
No, that is not me.... I am no swimmer.... 
But it is surely relaxing to come down when the sun has set....
As for me, when the sun sets, it is time for Food again!!
Oh, by the way, the rate of the room is RM175 without breakfast...

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
