Penang Murals And AEON BIG, Farlim

HAVING NOTHING MUCH TO DO IN THE AFTERNOON, MY FRIEND TOOK ME FOR A RIDE TO THE NEWLY OPENED AEON BIG IN FARLIM... With the blazing sun looming above us, it was indeed a hot day especially there is no shaded car park in the huge open area at AEON...We drove up to the parking inside the building thinking there would be covered car park... but alas, it was just a roof parking, as hot as it is at the ground level.... Seems Everyone have to park their car under the hot scorching sun.

Alright..so what is in store for us here... AEON Big is one of the main tenants... upon entering, most of the shop lots are still very vacant and empty.... but instead of seeing the empty  shoplots, they were replaced by interesting murals from Penang... not actually the original murals painted on the walls here but canvas type hung up while waiting for the shops to be occupied.... A very good idea actually...
Upon entering, one can feel the Penang atmostphere.... 


I am sure shoppers will find it interesting to take pictures as they walk along.... just like me! 
Looks so real and nice..... 
Reminds me of the Malacca heritage houses too...
It is like so-like Penang over here....
Interesting and fascinating, right?
At least someone has come up with this idea to make up the empty lots at the mall....
And this the real scenerio on a Wednesday afternoon.....


As I was wheeled along the way... no obstruction... all in full view.... 
Along the upper level....
Cooling and nice....
Quiet time for us retirees to come here and have a quiet walk... 
A nice time to catch up among the oldies but the goldies like this picture here....
Yes, this is AEON BIG...
Indeed it looks huge here...
Chinese New Year is coming soon...
Hope by then, more shops will be opened to attract us customers....

  2. I like the interactive murals, can sit on the stools or in the trishaw for photos. Ours here, no such thing, not impressed.

  4. I went there before and the mall is really empty, lots of shops are still not occupied, and the most funny thing is, those at the ground floor are temporary only, separated by partitions, haha.. hope more shops will move in soon..

    1. You went there before? You mean before it was opened? Just only recently it was newly opened...

  5. Beautiful murals paintings & it reminds me of Penang. A good & creative idea to use canvas. Looks so spacious the shopping mall.

  6. Hopefully they will install some metal shelters/roofings for the open air car park to shade the cars from the hot sun. Brilliant idea to print those banners with the mural pictures for the public viewing,

  9. I think someday Penang would be full of murals until there are no clean and empty walls left.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...

I expected the worst actually... and this was taken tbefore we said our goodbyes.. thank God for safe journeys and a pleasant trip altogether...
