A Stroll At Straits Quay, Penang

THE LAST TIME I CAME TO STRAITS QUAY, it was booming with people...
When I went there on Sunday evening, it was quite quiet and peaceful.  Maybe I went there a bit too early, most of them might be having dinner somewhere else.  Delicious restaurant is no more there, I remember when I came here few years ago, there was a queue going to this restaurant.  We had to wait to be seated... I love their cakes there...

We spent half an hour there this time... just to walk around before we proceeded for our wedding dinner at Hollywood restaurant as mentioned in my previous post.

I noticed a few yachts for sale.... 
I wonder how much one cost...

  1. I was wondering what this small tower is...so it's a visitor center. My favorite picture today is the third. I love all your boat pictures, but especially seeing into the boats from the back. The blue one is so pretty. I bet we never would have enough money in our whole life to buy a yacht!

  5. Thanks for loving my hometown always and your frequent visits certainly boosted their economy higher. My gang of school mates dined in KL last week and all chose to return & retire in Penang Island. I think that tiny yachts are less than RM20K averagely for 2nd hands. Those bigger ones with 6 seaters above could exceed RM100K! Buy one lah Claire and we can partay with beers & bikini. Hoo-la-la!

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
