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.

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
