Dinner On Top Of Tree Monkey, Teluk Bahang

ONE OF THE LATEST FOOD ATTRACTIONS THAT LURED ME TO PENANG IS THE TREE MONKEY at Tropical Spice Garden, Teluk Bahang.  Just recently opened, I was told, this Northeastern Thai, Asian and Western cuisines mixed and it is kind of special because it is nestled on a high wooden platform, overlooking panoramic views of the Andaman Sea... In a way, the ambiance is really romantic, facing the sunset while dining....

We parked along the main road, one has to be careful... and ascended up a slope leading to the Tree Monkey, it is like dining in a tree house which reminded me of those Enid Blyton's books... LOL.. We were there quite early, around 6pm and the sun was above the sea level... Tip: Do not go too early for dinner.  Initially the hot sun was glaring into our eyes and I have to end up wearing my sunglasses even when I was eating! But after awhile, when the sun was setting, the discomfort was forgotten... the cool breeze in the later evening produces a very romantic ambiance...

Affectionately called Ah Lai... 
Dusky Leaf Monkey but I didn't see him that evening..

Where shall we sit to avoid the sun?
Must find a perfect spot to avoid the sun... 
When will the sun go down?
How about this table?  No, a bit too hot.. 
The food served... 
And the bill and address... 
Towards the sun set....
Lights were on... 
Our sunset dinner for the evening... 
Tip of the day:  Go when the sun has set... 
The food will definitely taste better.. 
LOL..

  4. Your last two pictures are gorgeous! And I see your shadow snapping in the first photo! All the food looks awesome!! There looks to be some kind of rice in such a pretty shape. I know it must be great because it is up so high and you have to walk. It is also hidden. But when you find it, it is a gem. So they have this mascot monkey?

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
