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.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
