First Night In Penang Island

By the time we left the airport, it was almost 8pm... our stomachs were already "growling" by then... so wasting no time, we went to a nearby "chu chau" stall along the main road. Since we were super hungry, we ordered four dishes to be eaten by the three of us... 

Oh, don't ask me the name of the stall, we didn't really notice the name... all we wanted was a quick and nice dinner..... 
The crowd behind us.... 
It means the food must be good, right?
Though we ordered 4 dishes, 
the portions that were served were actually quite small...
Stew Yam with Porkie...
Baby French Beans....
Steamed Red Fish Thai style... 
Anytime lemon grass, I am IN!

And lastly and not least... Kapak aka Clams with basil leaves...
The dinner came to around RM80 cos the fish itself cost RM44...
 Aaron seems to be saying..
Let's go for desserts later!!
Yes, The night did not end here...
We adjourned to Karpal Singh Drive.....
Just look at what we ordered...
Yes, we were a bit "crazy".... but then... 
how to have a good night sleep without these??
No such thing as diet in Penang...
That's for Sure!

  4. With good company, must go and fill up tummy nicely, no need to nibble here, nibble there to eat less. Red fish is that expensive or is the fish very big?

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
