Balik Kampung At 1st Avenue And Sg Pinang Food Court

IT IS ALL ABOUT FOOD, WALK, FOOD, WALK IN PENANG....

Oh, I am talking for myself... my routine is just like waking up, eat.... walk.... blogging... exercise... eat... walk... sleep and it seems each day is more or less than same.  Sounds perfect to me, I am easily contented.  As long as my pension ringgit can stretch for one whole month, I am satisfied but of course, it could not stretch that long... hahahahaa..  It breaks off half way through all the time and I have to eat less after that!  That explains why I could not put on weight at certain time of the month....
So when I say I am not free to go out at certain time, that means I have to tighten my stomach... hahahahaa....
One fine afternoon, we spent a couple of hours walking at 1st Avenue... 
Some Raya decor was already up... 
Balik Kampung theme... 
Jom! Balik Kampung... 
But I was still in Penang then... 

Eating in food court might be less costly.... provided I take only the main meal...
For that evening, I had my dinner at Sungai Pinang.... 
Craving for Hokkien prawn noodles... 
And this was another too-spicy bowl for me...
I did not even "drown" all the hot chili provided....
My eyes are very greedy... 
They saw this on someone's table...
And they tempted me to order a plate for myself..... 
And so I did... and no regrets....
Beneath the nuts are jelly treasures with some greens...
The sauce combination tasted fantastic...
Another repetition of this next time for sure...
Sungai Pinang food court, I will be Back!

  7. That's the advantage of government service, you get pension. The rest of us rely on savings and EPF which can run out. But I like your routine lah. I would be happy with the same routine.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
