Penang Delights At Carnarvon, Burmah Road And Pulau Tikus

EACH MORNING IN PENANG, I ALWAYS WAKE UP THINKING of having a hot bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng!  The name is the same for every stall which sells KTT but the servings and ingredients may differ from one another.

Since we woke up late that morning, we went to the stall off Carnarvon Street, hoping the noodles were not sold out yet.  To our relief, they were still selling and one table unoccupied.  Quickly we made our order and in no time, our food were served.

The portion is very small... and I finished it fast and good... 
A small plate of greens... though I preferred them not to be splashed with oyster sauce... 
For two bowls and this plate of vege, it cost RM12...
Feeling not "full"... we adjourned to another place for "back-up".... 
Came across a mobile van selling Bah Chang at Burmah Road....
I was told this one is related to the shop along Cintra Street selling Bah Chang too... 
Even though it is along the street, tables and chairs are available on the pavement...
I like this style... too bad, Ipoh does not have this type of arrangement anymore.... 
Clean and tidy... 
Yes, they sell the same Yam Cake too as the shop too...
But just unfortunate that I was too late... 
The Bah Chang I wanted to eat was sold out...
The one with lots of yellow beans and less sticky rice were not available...
 Ended up taking this Bah Chang without beans....
And drowned with a bowl of red beans and black eye peas... 
After our double breakfast, we proceeded to the Pulau Tikus market.... 
And I couldn't help not buying a packet of this Nyonya dessert!

So... slowly, slowly.. as days go by,  as I do my posting.... 
I will get to know the cause of my changed figure... 
hmmmmm......

  3. I like the portion of food served in Penang, small enough for me so that I do not need to waste food by leaving any behind. I have eaten the bak chang at Lebuh Cintra. Nice!

  5. You sure have a big tummy to eat so much!! Lol.

    I love kway teow th'ng. Reminded me so much of Thailand where you told them noodle, they always end up werve you kway teow. To us, noodle means mee. The small noodle. To them, noodle is jway teow. Lol. I guess so since Penang and Thailand is so near, they have some similiarities.

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...
