Market And Street Food In Penang Island

FROM SOUTH TO NORTH....

I mean, back to Ipoh first... and then after resting and rejuvenating for a week or so, I went up north with my friend.  After shedding off some body fats in Ipoh, we adjourned to Penang, it is like my second or third home, going in and out of the island few times in a year.  What attracted me to go so often?  Needs no answer to that... LOL...  A retiree with strong cravings of food, I go whenever there is an opportunity, many thanks to my friends who share the same interest with me!  LOL..
From Ipoh to Penang, it is not a problem on the roads... 
Toll to toll takes less than 2 hours... 
Just have to sing one whole CD of songs, we can see the Penang second link.... 
Not many people takes this bridge... maybe it is out of the way for many... 
Or perhaps it cost slightly more to take this second bridge which is much longer than the first.. 
Easier for us to move about from the second bridge.. 
Our first destination... 
Jelutong market where food is served almost throughout the day.. 
Nasi Kerabu served in the market.. 
Only locals go there... good, simple and yet tasty food!
Their Nyonya kueh is something to shout about too!
Local coffee served in the market...
Cheap and yet fragrant... Best!
For this simple meal, it cost less than RM10..
Night time, we went to Perak Road where the authentic fried noodles are.... 
They put lots of ingredients... chunks of meat which I really avoid actually.. LOL.. 
I prefer this style... the wet version without egg... 
Complete the day's meal with Magnum customized ice cream in Paragon... RM9.90
One can choose three types of toppings... 
Yes, I made the wrong choice... 
Next time no gojiberries please... too dry and hard for my poor teeth!

  1. Looks like Ipoh is a good town to retire in. 2 hours to Penang and also 2 hours to KL. 2nd bridge is the new bridge or old bridge? I thought the old bridge is nearer to KomTar. Food looks good as usual.

  3. I have not been to Penang since my girl completed her studies some 6 years or so ago. Maybe I should make a trip there sometime soon.

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

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...
