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.

  8. Yes. Nice window view. I also prefer king size or super king bed when stay in hotel. 4 of us can squeeze into it. But next time we will need extra bed if Jamie is tagging along. ^^

  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!

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

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

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...
