Hainanese Food At Hollywood Restaurant, Penang

WHILE IN PENANG, I WAS INVITED to a birthday dinner at Hollywood Restaurant, Tanjung Bungah.  The name sounds interesting but in actual fact, this restaurant is better knows for its authentic Hainanese food besides their seafood dishes.  This is my first time eating in this restaurant... the first time I was there last time was to take pictures of the beach only....
The scenery at 6pm in the evening.... 
As for the food, I couldn't take them all...
Feel kind of embarrassed to take the food.. 
They don't know I am a blogger ma... 
hahahahaa...  
I only managed to take these few... 
I was fascinated with this "Birthday Cake" aka "Sau Tao" in cantonese... 
Even more fascinated when it was cut up...
There are "babies" inside... !
The Birthday Girl is a 86 years old lady 
And this cake represented Grandkids and Great Grandkids....
Hainanese Popiah... 

Part of the food served at the beginning... at the later part, the camera was put aside already... 
Deeply concentrating on the food.....
Business was brisk... 
 In the midst of the dinner, while waiting for the food to be served...
I came out to capture the scenery again... 
It was our last night in Penang...

  10. Lol! I am more interested in the seaside scenery. I would be very busy taking snapshots. The Peach buns or birthday buns looks pretty. The one that caught my attention is the Hainanese popiah.

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
