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.

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 …
