Tourist Laksa In Balik Pulau, Penang

After checking out from our hotel around 10.30am, we set out for Balik Pulau. It has been more than a year or so since I last visited this place up the hills...
Short distance from the hotel... it was a hot sunny day....
After around 15 minutes or so, we reached Balik Pulau town...
The heritage landmark of Balik Pulau... 
The rooster roundabout has been there for decades..
Soon we reached what we came here for....
The Tourist Place for Laksa!


But before I took the laksa, I finished this sweet pumpkin pau filled with red beans... 
Very nice... Cost RM1 each.. 
I should buy more to take back to Ipoh!
Then followed by this... 
Noodles drowned within....
 Dug them out... and....
... in no time... all tucked safely into my tummy!
Well, it did not end there... 
It was still early and we walked along the main road till...
DESSERT TIME!

  15. The Penang laksa is not the same as Sarawak laksa. More like curry laksa??

  17. This quaint town never changed and I want to laugh at this laksa. During my school days we rode scramblers on narrow roads there to eat laksa until rumors spread that they put old newspapers inside to thicken its gravy. Bluek! Of course it was nonsense I think but some stalls added chicken feed to thicken the soup. That was a secret to its yummy taste.

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...
