Getaway To Penang Master Keong Restaurant

UP NORTH....

Don't waste time, my sister said.... And after a few days of settling down in Ipoh, we packed our bags for a two nights stay up north, our favourite state, Penang!  Driving there is not a problem for me, short journey of less than two hours, it feels good to be behind the wheels after so long. :)

We stayed in Cititel Express, good location, cheap and clean costing around RM150 per night.  Three of us squeezed in the small room and the only place to sit is on the bed.  Well, we did not mind a bit, after all, we were out almost the whole day and we  like squeezing cos someone is afraid of the dark!  LOL...

Daytime spent eating lots of food from different places, so much so that I did not take pictures.... and we had our first dinner at a new restaurant called Master Keong.
We went there around 7pm and the place was not crowded at all...
Maybe it was a weekday... 
That is how I remember the name of this restaurant...
We ordered soup to replenish our stamina... 
Wintermelon soup... 
Claypot curry fish head which is quite costly.. around RM80... 
Spinach in egg gravy which is a bit too thick...
Venison meat which is a bit too tough for me... 
Maybe due to weak teeth.. poor old me!
And a plate of meehoon fried with braised pork...
Four dishes which cost around RM160 over... 
I guess it is a bit overpriced...
Well, at least we tried.... and now we know...

  2. it is so fun to be able to drive to Penang whenever you feel like it since it is only 2 hours away. Ok, need to avoid this restaurant because it is costly.

  6. Really no time wasted. You sisters are so adventurous. I wonder when me and my sister would have such holiday. Maybe when our kids all grown up and able to fend themselves, without mummy around. Lol.

    I wish to visit Penang again. Been more than 20 years since my last (very 1st) trip there.

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?

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

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....

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

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
