Our Room At Royal Hotel, Penang

Whenever I go to Penang, I either stay in B-Suite Hotel, Bayan Lepas or Royal Hotel in town. But ever since Andy finished his college, I did not go to B-Suite anymore... staying in town is more convenient for us to move about.  I like Royal Hotel, basically due to the reason it is near to Penang Road where food is easily accessible...

The hotel rates have increased no doubt... but thankfully, it is still less than RM200 for me, I can still afford a night or two.. anything more than that, we have to stay somewhere cheaper... :)  I have been staying in this hotel for more than a decade now, it has changed its name a few times, it does not matter to me, the rooms are still the same... but the reception is definitely different..
We were staying on the 14th floor that day.... 
Center view from the room....


Right view.... towards the sea...
Left view....all land.....
We prefer the King size bed than two singles....
We manage to squeeze up in one bed.. hahaha...
Happiest when he saw his favourite!
But too bad... none of us  is taking him to KL to watch.... 
Next morning breakfast buffet.... my appetizer.... 
Just couldn't eat much of anything..... 
But he certainly can... 
A double portion of everything he took...!
This is what I called Generation Gap!
Hahahaa...

  4. Don't bluff la, you cannot eat much? Did the Kucing family broke you down too comprehensively? :D
    Omg WWE, I haven't watched that show in ages! For me, that fake fighting show is for school kids, because they can only cheat school kids level into thinking it is real!
    I used to book B-suite for friends, my company badge can get 10% discount plus upgrade to bigger room, but that privilege ended last year. Let me check what hotels that I can get corporate rate nowadays :D

  5. I stayed in B-suite once. Room is just too big for 3 of us that it seems rather eerie. Wow, your hotel room has a very good view. Growing kid of course must eat a lot. You did not eat much for breakfast because you are saving up to attack Penang street food, right?

    1. Mun, I guess you can understand me pretty well... Small stomach so must save space for other stuff....b-suite eerie? Why? Too big?

      Delete
    2. Yes, too big so there was just too much empty spaces in the room even when there were 3 of us staying in just one room.

    3. Cos it is supposed to be a suite.. that is why it is big.. can fit 10 people especially youngsters where they can budget if they don't mind sleeping on the floor.. :)

  6. Less than RM200? Wow. Room looks spacious some more.

  10. This Royal Hotel has changed hands several times from originally Merlin to Sheraton and dunno what else. I agree that their location is nice. You can try City Bayview Hotel as sometimes you also get the seaview under RM200 and location is good too. Their breakfast buffet is really good and makes a fussy food blogger like you happy!

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 …
