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!

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
