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.

      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?

  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..

      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..

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

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 …
