Trip To Penang For Food And Desserts

Last Saturday my girl and I set out on a clear sunny morning... we took a slow drive up north to Penang island for a two nights getaway, a day after I "unofficially" retired.  
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright ... bright....
Sun-Shiny day.
 
Mama started the engine rolling down the tunnel... 
till we reached the Panglima Bukit Gantang resthouse...
then the small girl took over the wheel... 
because mama knows the roads are "straighter" and easier to monitor....
let her have a "feel" of how it is on a highway..... 
but of course, mama's turn before reaching the toll... 
So hungry we were... we ended up going to Perak Road...
Taking yam rice at Canton shop...
Salted Vegetables soup with meaty balls and varieties....
Long time I didn't take salted vege soup..
Ordered a small bowl of pork knuckles, beancurd and one egg....
The bill came to around RM14...
 Next, we ended up in Prangin Mall.... 
At the Teochew Chendol Stall
In time to watch some "A-Go-Go" dancers in tune with some 1970s songs....
.... at the same time enjoying our bowl of cendol at the Teochew stall...
Creamy and Santan-ic as usual.....
Time to lose some calories after that.... 
We walked for a couple of hours doing some "window shopping"
before we proceeded to check in to our hotel at Tanjung Bungah...

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
