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?

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
