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.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
