Scenery From Penang Swimming Club

We wanted to stay in town but since we were planning to go to Balik Pulau the next day, we checked into a very reasonable room here in TH Hotel.
Can guess what TH stands for? :)
At the lobby... 
Very quiet because of the fasting month....
A terrace for one to relax in the evening... 
For dinner we went to the Penang Swimming Club Restaurant... 
It was the first time for me to dine there... 
From the balcony of the restaurant overlooking to the sea...
The restaurant has a very nice ambience...
Was told that only members were allowed to bring in guests...
 
And new apartments which cost around RM4 million? 
Still under construction... 
There are 30 storeys high... 
The higher, the more expensive...
I think I don't need to face the seaside after hearing so much about tsunamis...
hahahhaaa...
By the way, I didn't take any pictures of any food taken there...
Kind of embarrassing cos they are just casual friends...
But the food was not bad...
Soft crabs, crabs soup, mango chicken and  two types of greens...
Waist line a bit widened, no doubt about that...
hahahaaa...

  2. Nice view from the balcony overlooking the sea. I have fobia of heights so guess I am not really interested in high rise buildings. TH stands for Tabung Haji, hahaha, just my wild guess.

  7. I was not able to guess what TH stands for. Nice that you have a member of PSC treating you all to a dinner there. I am also like that, if not that close friends, will not take photos of the food too.

    1. TH is around RM135 with breakfast... my friend got it at a special rate.. RM105...

      Delete
    2. So its not what you know but who you know to get special rate huh? Why go Balik Pulau, aha to sapu all the durians?

      Delete
  11. RM 4 million?! *pengsan*
    But that's the price la hor? Penang is a small place... Land very precious.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I also cannot imagine why the price is so high.. maybe big and spacious lot...

      Delete
    2. The RM 4 million ones should be those 2000 sq ft units. And yeah, the stretch between Gurney Drive and Batu Ferringhi is crazy expensive, probably because of seaside view and close to town. It is a bit like the stretch between Ampang Point and KLCC, the prices will go up like nobody's business..

      Delete
  12. Call me jakun, what does TH stands for? Yep, apartments or condos in Pg are very expensive, becoz of the limited land.. RM4 mil? I can never afford that, nomatter how long I work, keke..

    ReplyDelete
  13. Louiz, I just used your jakun up there too! TH.. Tabung Haji.. I didn't know they have a hotel here in Penang...

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
