Penang Road and Freeschool Garden, Penang

The next morning we had breakfast in Kheng Phin coffeeshop along Penang Road... actually I wanted another bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng before leaving for Ipoh but unfortunately, there isn't any in this shop...
I ended up ordering a plate of fried koay teow instead.... 
Their beansprouts are very similar to the Ipoh ones already....
Must not leave Penang without some lobak in the stomach....
But too bad the Yam was already sold out by then....
Saw a vendor selling Mua Chee at the pavement walkway....
Couldn't resist... they were still warm, that's the way I like it.... 
 
After our brunch, we came to this place.... 
Flea Market!
Interesting stuff being sold there....
More on handicraft...
Soon it was time for us to leave.....
Passed by Freeschool Garden.....
And we stopped by here for some food... and desserts...
Well, I guess I could not leave Penang without another bowl of my favourite noodles....
Don't know when I will make another short trip again.....

  3. hahaha, how can one miss out Char Koay Teow and Lobak in Penang?? but it seems like this statement is not true to you, to the Food Mayor of Ipoh, she says "How can I miss out Koay Teow Thng in Penang??" instead.. and oh, i like that Mua Chee, it comes with sesame too, ah, even the so-called "most famous" one in KL along Petaling Street doesn't have sesame in it..

  5. It is an interesting place. Big huge skyscrapers right alongside small stalls and a market. Like many different neighborhoods all combined.

    1. It is town area so it is kind of commercialized...

  6. Ahhhhh!!!! My favourite coffee shop! So old, so dark and murky...but the food from all the stalls...so nice. Best not to go around lunchtime - the lobak, like being given away free....mad scramble for anything that came out of the wok.

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 …
