Giant Wheels At BP Anjung Indah, Balik Pulau

THE HAKKA VILLAGE WAS SOON FORGOTTEN BY US... We aborted our plan to go into the village after hearing that private cars cannot go up, we have to go to this village via the Land Rover.  The roads are narrow, we were told... so with tummies full after two durians, we made our way back to town.  This time we took another way back and on the way we passed through Betong village....

Through Betong village leading to Balik Pulau... 
Soon we arrived at Balik Pulau.. looking for Laksa... 
It was almost 3pm...
Unfortunately Laksa was already sold out ... 
Found this mural painting near the Laksa shop instead...
Half way down from Balik Pulau, we stopped at the stalls to take this scenery... 
There was a road leading uphill to a Thai restaurant called BP Anjung Indah...
Since we arrived at odd hours, there was no patrons as yet.... 
We just walked around adding memories to our camera... 
And wondering why there are so many bullock wheels here... 
The wheels as Big as yours truly.... 
The scenery at night must be spectacular up here... 
No, we did not have dinner at this place...
Perhaps next time when there is a bigger group....
The sky was getting cloudy and it was time for us to make our way back to Penang town...
Time to call it a day..
Just too bad we could not taste the Balik Pulau famous laksa....
Well, guess have to wait for my next trip then....

  3. Balik Pulau looks so peaceful compared to the other side of the island...very nice scenery up the hill and perhaps fresher air too?

  5. I love everything about your trip, Claire! The mural is so good! And the elephants, pretty blue chairs, the pretty view and you with the wheels! This trip was perfect for a blog post!

  6. I think laksa have to wait until year end already. You go back next month or the following month, you will still be distracted by durians and more durians XD

  7. So much changes at Balik Pulau. I have not visited this place for many years now.

    The bullock cart wheels are unique to be there as they looked irrelevant. I don't recall the history showing any bullock carts in that area with so many slopes. The cows would freak out. LOL

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
