A Bitter And Sweet Experience In Kimberley Street, Penang

THE EVENING WAS STILL YOUNG WHEN our dinner was safely tucked in... what I need then was something cooling and one shop in Kimberley Street came to my mind.

It was a weekday so the street was not as busy as during the weekends....
But I said it a bit too soon... 
An hour later, I saw a tourist bus passing by... with full of passengers...
Stopped by here to have black herbal jelly and tea.... 
Then we walked along the street to see what they have in store...
And I was made to stop here.... thought it was just to look see....
Then someone mentioned... "RM10 for 3.. cheap cheap!"
And they have places to sit to enjoy the fruit king...
Eventually I couldn't resist too....
They tasted so Bitter... and I love the bitterness in them!!
Small durians no doubt... after all, RM10 for 3... 
What to expect... 
Anyway, three or not, we could not finish them all.... 
Walked further down, we saw more stalls... but my tummy was just too full to tuck in anymore...
Food, I mean...
Though they looked kind of tempting....
But I could still tuck in a bowl of "Sweetness"
As for the durians, they are kept till the next day to go with my lunch!
This is what I called a Bitter And Sweet Experience... :)


  1. Now, now! Durian is definitely not cooling! :D

  2. 10 ringgit for 3...WB should see this then...kakaka :) looks good though

    1. See First Garden got already or not... hehee

  3. Aiyoyo! Durian season again! I am going to go gila hah..hah..hah...

  4. I like bitter durians too! So nice! I also want to go and eat 3 durians for RM10 only.

    1. I hear the natural durians, growing wild, have a hint of bitterness amidst the sweetness - much nicer than those hybrids. A lot of people prefer these.

    2. Yeah, I prefer those wild ones... natural ones... with worms also never mind.. hahaha

  5. Ahhhh... durian! I'll be going to Penang in two weeks time. Wanna go makan some durians too :D

  6. Wah now is durian season ho?

  7. You want "liu lian", don't go to Georgetown ya, Penang "liu lian" comes from Balik Pulau, they get more expensive the further north you go. Stick to Bayan Lepas area, you can get cheaper and bigger. Or better, go straight to Balik Pulau, to those durian orchards :P ...

    1. Yeah.. we went to Balik Pulau too... hehehe..

  8. Durians! So cheap in Penang. Over here I see weighing machine at every stalls!

  9. Durian! Cheap.

    I want that bowl of tong sui.

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....

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

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...
