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.

    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?

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

    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..

  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..

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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
