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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
