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..

  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 White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
