Food Galore In Penang Island

FROM JOHOR BOTH OF US FLEW UP NORTH.. to the Pearl of the Orient, Penang!

Penang has been in the limelight recently... for the first time in history, heavy rain had caused a massive flood in the island and in the mainland as well.  It has caused a big concern to all Malaysians and on the positive side, the phenomenon has brought the people together, united to help one another regardless of race. 

For both Aaron and I, we have a lot to be thankful for.... firstly, we were not affected by the flood, we were there a week before it happened.   Our plane schedule went on smoothly, the weather was fabulous and we spent our three days' stay filling our tummies with what we-see, we-eat food marathon...
We stayed at Cititel Express Hotel right in the middle of the town... 
Nearby to the shopping malls and accessible food places... 
Weather was hot and hotter each day... 
Some of the food which we took during our stay... 
More to these but somehow, the pictures were not in our camera... 
Reason for the "lost pics" must be due to our "fast food attack!"
Food for Two at Pulau Tikus...
Prawn noodles, Duck meat noodles, Laksa and Fried Koay Teow for dinner...
Thumbs Up for Penang!

  1. Lucky you! Cititel Express? Is that the same as the one at Penang Road, across the road from Red Garden Hawker Centre? We went there after our karaoke session with Eugene and the rest, remember? Miss the food so much! I hear Pulau Tikus is good too but I've never been.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
