The Scenery At Copthorn Orchid And Queensbay Mall Activities

BOOKING AT THE LAST MINUTE... we were undecided which hotel to stay, all the rates have gone up since the last time we went.  My budget is below RM200 and through Agoda, we settled for Copthorn Orchid Hotel at Tanjung Bungah.  I made a mistake, I thought it was the hotel which my girl and I stayed last year, I quite liked that hotel, it is called Flamingo... and I mixed up with this Copthorn, I thought it was Flamingo... Blunder me..

Only when we reached the hotel, I realized it was not the same... no choice, already paid so have to stay... Compared to the two hotels, I still prefer the Flamingo, still couldn't understand why I made the mistake.  Blame it on jet lag... LOL... Anyway, the rates for Copthorn is RM164 per night excluding taxes and breakfast was not included... never mind, Penang has lots to offer from morning till night!
Seaside scenery from the swimming pool... not from my room, unfortunately...
There is a private beach here.... 
And a bungalow along the beach... just behind where I am standing....
As usual, we did what the ladies normally do...
Go to all the malls in Penang... 
And me... as a "vendor"
Raya Goodies!
With a beautiful Balinese lady... 
And that was what we did during this festive season....
No crowd so we managed to take as many pictures as we like... 
Ladies... hmmmm......

  7. The Balinese lady is a real person or wax figure? Her pose and expression are the same in your two photos.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
