Kimberley, Penang And Free School Road For "Foodie Loots"

I WANTED TO AVOID PENANG ROAD.. but somehow landed there again... Before Penang Road, I went to have a herbal fix at a shop along Kimberley Street, this shop sells cooling drinks, their "kwai leen koe" with honey was the best I have eaten so far. Sorry, I didn't manage to capture a picture because my throat was just too dry and all I thought of that time was to "chuck" the black herbal jelly into my mouth... hahahaa...

Since our park was parked along Kimberley Street, we took a short walk to Penang Road to take a "look" at the famous cendol... Just by looking, we ended up eating not only the cendol but a bowl of laksa as well... Actually I was thinking of going to another place for better laksa, someone put up in FB that there is one shop called Laksalicious along Hutton Road... oh well, that will have to wait...

Why did I come here for the laksa, especially during the weekend!
It is just "overwhelming"... I mean the crowd... 
When my bowl of laksa arrived, I told myself.. "Must try others next time!"
Cendol was better... 
Not from the long Q stall, it was from the one opposite....
More generous with the greenies here.... 

Well, that was not all... I didn't feel "satisfied" with the foodie loot as yet...
We adjourned Free School Road to take a look at this stall....
Seems like this is one popular stall among the locals too....
Family business, I think... 
Slowly does it....
"Building Bricks"
And the result... so neat!!
And My Loot!!
RM1.10 for a piece... no joke!
Ate them nice and slow... after half an hour.....

  1. wow, the cendol looks good.. and I always think Penang is a scorching hot place, so a bowl of cendol like this is surely welcomed..

    the fried nin koe, OMG, she trimmed every piece until so neat and all almost the same size!! hebat lah.. RM1.10 a piece?? still not the most expensive I've bought, hehe~~ :p

  5. Wah Penang makan makan again. Fried nien gao is one of my favourite. I like it that they arranged the nien gao and the sweet potatoes so neatly. When I think of the crowd, I also wanna pengsan so cannot go anytime because most of the time it will have that many people.

  6. Have you been to New World, the big hawker centre opposite Komtar? Our friend, Eugene took me there once...and I went a few times on my own. Never seen you blogging about it or not that I can remember. The cendol there is very nice and also quite a lot of the things there.

    Not a fan of that extra sweet sticky cake, so I would give that a pass...no, thank you. I love the steamed yam cake at New World, served with hay kor (rojak sauce)...and Penang otak-otak...and pasembur and...so many things there. Been years since I went to Penang - so dunno if this place is still good or not though.

    2. Not all that far, we walked from Cititel up Penang Road, Komtar would be straight ahead...and we turned right, I think that was Jalan Burma. Tune Hotel is there.
      I like that place very much, was there here in 2009:

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
