Food Delights In Penang Island

Somehow we always go back to the same stalls over and over again while we are in Penang...  and we decided that we must not do that anymore next time... we must try other stalls which we have not been to the next time.  Of course we should do some "food homework" before we go to Penang again otherwise we would end up going to the same stalls again ... and again....

Here we were at Kimberley Street again the other day.... I was actually quite full that evening and we just took a bit of this and that... not much of food varieties and not too much to my liking as well.  Blame it on my slow indigestion!
Aaron ordered some braised duck meat ... or was it chicken....? 
This is "koay chap" without the innards..
The fried koay teow was something not expected by Reanaclaire...
The dessert... "everything got" is the name....
The next morning we went to the market called 7th Street Market...
We had duck meat Koay Teow Th'ng....
We bought RM10 of roasted pork to go with the noodles...
This is the stall we have the duck meat....
 From the 7th Street Market, we adjourned to Gottlieb Street for Laksa!
We had these too...
By then my tummy was really FULL!
The morning before we left for Ipoh, we had Koay Teow Th'ng again..
This time in Hutton Lane.... 
For sidekicks!
That ended the part of hawker food in Penang..... 
We drove home after our two nights stay ... 
And... yes, we will be back in Penang again.... soon...
Very Soon!

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…
