Second Bridge Penang And Teochew Cendol

After the scrumptious lunch in Nibong Tebal, we proceeded on with our journey to Penang Island. For the first time, we took the New Bridge and it led us to Batu Maung...
The toll that led us to the new bridge....
Called The Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah
or Penang Second Bridge as it is commonly known...
Surprisingly it was very quiet on a weekday....
 a great contrast compared to the first Penang bridge...
Not a car in sight.....
I heard it was filled with 60,000 people just last Sunday Marathon...
I heard the toll rate for this bridge is more....  a distance of 42 KM?
Reaching Penang, we went to Prangin Mall to get something done....
And while we were down, we chanced upon this place...
They opened a branch here in the mall?  
At least we don't have to queue up in the hot sun...
Penang Famous Cendol.....
One bowl cost RM3.90
Slightly more than the Penang Road.....
I don't mind paying a bit more to enjoy this cooling drink here......
Nice scenery... comfortable and chilling...
COOL!!

  3. At first I told you wrote Paradigm Mall because it also has this same cendol stall. Then I thought, eh, Paradigm Mall is not in Penang and then I thought you were in KL. Me so blur. Then only I read carefully it is Pragin Mall. I also prefer to pay more to eat in comfort.

  5. When I see cendol I straightaway think of SS15 cendol.. Very famous cendol and rojak (they're always together), and people have to queue up for the rojak.. Everyday super long queue leh...

  8. Not 42km lah, the official distance is 25km. The full marathon runners run almost the entire stretch and then turn back. Not many people uses this bridge yet, even on weekends. Unless you are in Batu Maung area, using this bridge is more inconvenient that the first bridge. The distance is longer, and you need to get through many traffic lights/road construction to get there. Maybe more people will use it once that flyover is completed.

  17. Teochew Cendol? I'm a Teochew myself, but I didn't know there's difference among the various types of Cendol. How interesting!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
