Scenes Along Penang Roads

THE WEATHER WAS SUPER HOT IN PENANG.... however I prefer the sunshine over rain anytime.  Despite the hot air here on the island, we did not stay indoor to enjoy the cold air, we came out to do some sight seeing, driving along the busy roads in town.

Firstly we need to drop by here at the municipal to "donate" some money to them.  hahahahaa... Yes, we were here to pay a parking summon.  We did not mind paying the sum but we really do mind waiting for more than an hour just to pay the small sum.
Yes, free parking for customers using the kiosk but we just parked there anyway.  There was just one staff at the collection counter and we waited for more than an hour for our turn.  We made a mistake too... never ever go there during noon unless we bring along our iPad next time!  hahahaa..
Since I was not the driver, I have the privilege to take some pictures 
as the car moved through the roads along the city center....
But don't ask me exactly where and the name of the roads, I really do not remember... 
These are around the government office area....
Maybe Penangnites who read this post will enlighten us...
Can someone tell me what building this is?
I know this one... An old church way back long ago....
On the way to Bayview Hotel....am I right?
Colonial building....
Cititel Hotel along Penang Road... this one I sure know... 
hahahaa...
Driving along Penang Road, the heart of the city....
Around the corner....
Approaching Komtar Building... 
The tallest building in Penang with 65 storeys... 
The Komtar Tower....

  4. Eh next time go to Komtar to make the "donation" lah. They have a few counters there, so you don't need to wait that long!

    Eh eh eh, wrong wrong wrong. There should not be a next time for such occasion!

    Btw, hijack the comment a bit: you have any idea if those local delights in Ipoh, those taugeh chicken and kopi places, will they be open already on Nin Chor 5 (Friday)? I might bring a guest to explore Ipoh on that day, but if the food is not open then pretty pointless :/

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

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

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...
