Feeling Heavy At Lorong Selamat, Penang

AFTER OUR CHURCH SERVICE ON SUNDAY, my girl suggested having our lunch at Lorong Selamat... It had been a couple of years since we last went there for food. We do not like to "clash" with the crowd and I was expecting the place would be crowded especially on a Sunday. But to our astonishment, there was no jam at all and no crowd too along the road.  It was a Sunday lunch hour... hmmmm... I wonder why....
Maybe it was not a working day... and we could easily get our seats....
Oh, maybe it is an off-peak weekend, not many tourists too...
The food we ordered were served in no time... 
With three big prawns, the price would not be "small"... it cost RM9.50... 
Maybe this is the reason why.... hmmm.... 
Koay Teow Th'ng for my girl....
And a bowl of laksa to share.... 
Something is missing here... 
Mint leaves!
Or at least some greens?  
The fish was generously served though... 
I opted for ice kacang.... and forgotten to tell them not to put the ice cream...
It was kind of creamy towards the end... 
Lorong Selamat's version of cendol....
Our heavy breakfast cum lunch.... 
I think my girl will opt for other places the next time...

  3. RM9.50 now, eh? The ckt was RM8 when I went. Overrated, nothing sensational that is worth putting up with the crowd and the long wait. Can have the same or perhaps even nicer ckt, elsewhere. Just like our RM10 Sarawak laksa or our RM45 giant prawn noodles here - I never feel it is anything that great to be worth those prices...even with all those prawns.

  4. Sigh!!!...Nothing comes cheap these days. All in all the food looks good & I would opt for the kway teow tng though it looks abit oily. Dessert is a must too.

  5. RM9.50 for the fried noodle with 3 prawns! Over-priced I think.

    Ice kacang by itself is nice and cool enough. I would not want ice cream on top too.

  6. Maybe cos of the "big" prawns, that's why RM9.50?

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
