Hollywood Food, Penang Durians And Ipoh Pomeloes Delights

AS EVENING APPROACHED, I had a nice dinner with a group of friends at Hollywood restaurant, Batu Feringgi.  It was my second time eating at this restaurant, mainly Hainanese styled, I was told.  I have not really tried much before and naturally I was looking forward to a night of new dishes.

As usual we were there quite early and before the other guests arrived, I quickly took some pictures of the empty hall...

The place where dinner was held... the side is facing the sea.... 
That is the sea I meant... but not meant for swimming though... 
And our dishes for the night were as follows... 
Cold dish... Jelly with Chicken and not sure what else... 
I am certainly not a fan of cold dish... :)
BBQ Meat.... They were not burnt though they looked somehow on the dark side.... 
Clams with some sweet sauce.. and after eating some, I called this..
Clams in Rojak sauce... 
Of the few dishes above, this looks more familiar to me....
Honey lemon chicken... Penang style... 
There is one more dish... fried meehoon with prawns... 
That came last and I did not manage to take it cos I was already "occupied'.... 
And above all, the main highlight was the Durian Desserts!
There were only seven of us and the hostess bought SEVEN packets....
Oh my goodness.... such delight!!
I ended trying one from each packet though... 
Oh, I did sponsor something too...
Notice the pink fruit?  Pomeloes from Ipoh mali....
After eating the durians, the pomeloes tasted kind of bitter.... 
I guess they should not combine... 
Another bittersweet kind of desserts!

  1. I like the BBQ meat like that, even if it is burnt a little. Nicer, very much more fragrant. Clams, prawns, chicken - all look good, dunno that jelly dish - never tried...and I would just stick to the pomelo - no, thank you to the durians. So so so so hot here these days, dunno there - best not to eat heaty fruits, so many people falling ill, dropping like flies.

  2. I like the clam and bbq meat. The cold dish looked unique as served in jelly-like.

    Durian?? Not for me. No longer that crazy about the fruits for many years now. hahaha!

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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
