Our Weekend Indulgence In Penang

DROVE UP NORTH TO PENANG ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON AROUND 3PM...
By the time we reached the island, it was almost... almost time for dinner.  After checking in to the hotel, we adjourned for food and more food at this food paradise island...

First stop at Free School Garden food court, it opens day and night, plenty of varieties over there at the stalls, only problem is that the stomach cannot fill in much... LOL... I think it is something to do with age.. my age, I mean.. My eyes are wide but the mouth is too small...
Ended up taking a plate of Fried Koay Teow... RM6 or RM7
And steamed crabs which cost RM64!
Went to Chulia Street for more food... it is famous for Wanton noodles.. 
But stomach cannot put in anymore main meal... 
Wanted something lighter ... 
A better choice with a mixture of fish and greens...
RM5 for 11 pieces and I love the generous crispy garlic toppings... 
Next morning we went to Pulau Tikus... 
One of the coffeeshops famous for their Fried Mee... RM6
Hokkien prawn noodles RM6
One whole egg!
Very tasty too... 
We ordered a bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng to share... 
And we could not resist the Pasembur as well.... RM9.50
For afternoon tea, I had Laksa at Ayer Itam... Rm4
Too full for anything else...
Then later at night we went to Jelutong Market for Koay Kak... 
And vegetarian meehoon which is quite popular around that area.... 
Ended the meal with sweet dessert called "Everything IN"
A mixture of 10 ingredients or more.... RM4 
Monday morning before we depart, we had Dim Sum at Macalister Road... 
And reached Ipoh around noon...
This is our "Weekend Indulgence"...
Back to simple homecooked food in Ipoh!

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
