Eastern & Oriental Hotel In Penang

Andy went out to celebrate with his friends... he has not seen them for a long time and he sure wants to make full use of the time to catch up....So... where shall I go with Aaron?  We too wanted to celebrate in our own way!  hahahaa.... 

Not wanting to be left out, both of us made a reservation with E&O Hotel at Lebuh Farquhar, Penang... Both of us had never been there and this was quite exciting for us... We reached the hotel around 7pm and before we adjourned to the Sarkies Corner for buffet, we walked around the vicinity of the hotel.....
From the parking lot on the second floor, it looks so "caribbean".....
Then the real thing.....
We walked for some distance .... 
(To lose some calories!)
I'm glad I was wearing something "loose" that evening... 
hahahaa....
The British Colonial Style....
I like this jetty......
I wonder how much is per room per night.....
This was taken when we left the buffet corner to take a "breather"....
Very Victorian styled....
Wow... we took many pictures actually.....
Cos we don't know when we would be back here again!
Beautiful ambience...
 Love this sight during the twilight.....

  2. You made the right choice for your celebration. Very romantic place. Can imagine the lovebirds in the love storybooks holding hands....walking along the beach and the garden...... under the moonlit sky..... listening to the lapping of the waves........

  3. Nice hotel with beautiful scenery. Last pix, looks like it reaches out to the sea. Sure it's a nice buffet dinner with mother & son bonding time.

  4. The hotel's surroundings sure look beautiful. Can see you have a great time bonding with your elder son. Will the next post be about the food at the buffet dinner?

  5. The pictures of you and Aaron are my favorite. But next I love the black silhouettes of the palm trees with the pale blue background, so beautiful! We do not have palm trees, they will not grow in this climate. They are in Florida and California though.

  7. Hmm, I have never been there for dinner, but a few times for lunch buffet. Maybe go too many times, I don't feel it is nice anymore, I prefer Straights Quay nowadays, because of the boats :D

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...
