Jelutong Market And Ayer Itam Delights, Penang

ONE MORNING MY FRIEND TOOK ME TO THE JELUTONG MARKET ONE MORNING FOR BREAKFAST.... It was my first time there and as we walked along, there were a number of stalls which caught my eye.  Since it was morning, every stall that I passed by made me very hungry.... finally we settled somewhere in the middle where I could slowly checked out what attracted me most...
These stalls reminded me of my childhood days where I stayed just opposite the town market..
Now those stalls are all shifted into an indoor complex....
Unlike the Jelutong market here... 

Patrons can sit here at their own leisure time to enjoy their breakfast... 
We sat directly in front of this stall selling Apom Balik...
We bought two pieces and before I could take pictures of them, 
they went into our tummies already....
Too late...
I had Hokkien mee again!! 
This time my noodles are those of the instant ones.... 
Each bowl is RM4...
Love the heavy garnishing on top...
My friend ordered the Lam Mee... I tried a bit.. and I like the soup base...

Fast forward to afternoon.... I was yearning for a bowl of Laksa and I remember there is one stall in Ayer Itam that suits my taste buds....
We had to find a shady area along a side lane.... 
We ordered a bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng with Duck and Porky meat plus innards... 
And a bowl of Laksa as appetizer!
Now come to think of it, my Penang trip this time is filled 
with the same type of food but from different locations.... 
And I guess I will carry on eating the same thing over and over again... 
hahahaha....

  2. Wow, you sure know how to travel all around Penang for good food now. Ayer Itam really is very jam so we don't dare to drive there when we are in Penang.

  3. I see the things still inside the intestines. Not bitter?

    The food at such places is always the best but I would need a fan! No need for air-con, just a fan...or I would be sweating plus-plus...and like our good friend on KL, those stools...cannot tahan lah. Same thing, me! Hehehehehehe!!!!!

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
